A technique for identifying polyploid sectors in grass inflorescences

Abstract

A simple technique for counting mitotic chromosome numbers in ovaries of inflorescences has been developed and applied to grasses. The uses, as outlined, include isolating polyploid inflorescences for hybridization, and as an alternative method to root-tip squashes for chromosome morphology and banding studies.
