Abstract

RECIPROCAL translocations are found frequently in many wild and cultivated plants, and are inducible artificially by treatment with X-rays1. In the cases of wheat (2n = 14), the largest ring 14 was obtained by successive inter-crossing of the translocation stocks, which were produced by X-rays7,8. This is a confirmation of one of the processes through which the largest rings arise in some wild plants.
