HE genus Gossypium, a member of the Malvaceae, includes the T species of cultivated cottons. More than IOO species of Gossypium have been described, but recent workers include all the described types in fewer than 20 species (HUTCHINSON and GHOSE 1937; HARLAND 1939). The basic chromosome number in the genus is 13, and all species studied have either 13 or 26 pairs of chromosomes. The cytological behavior of all species hybrids, except one, included in this paper has been reported previously by…

The Significance of Multivalent Formation in Three-Species Gossypium Hybrids.
OR some years the cotton improvement program at the Texas AgriculF tural Experiment Station has included studies of three-species hybrids combining tetraploid New World cultivated cottons (with the
Polygenomic Hybrids in Gossypium. I. Cytology of Hexaploids, Pentaploids and Hexaploid Combinations.
genus Gossypium is in many an unusually for the study of species relations. Cytologically, the genus comprises two groups of species, diploid9 with n = 13, and a group of three amphiploids of related
Micropropagation of Cotton (Gossypium Species)
TLDR
The cotton plant is a typical woody perennial shrub, its growth habit is indeterminate and it develops simultaneously both vegetatively and reproductively (Mauney 1984).
Segregation in New Allopolyploids of Gossypium. II. Tetraploid Combinations.
TLDR
Amphiploids synthesized from seedlings of artificial hybrids by SCHWANITZ’S tragancanth method and maintained in a vigorous and actively growing state while being used for testcrossing are presented.
ADDITIONAL OBSERVATIONS ON CHROMOSOMAL TRANSLOCATIONS IN COTTON HYBRIDS
TLDR
The chromosomes of some plant genera abound with segmental interchanges but in the genus Gossypium only three have been found thus far and of particular interest was the constitution of an Old World species known only from the wild, G. anomalum, which had the arrangement of G. herbaceum with respect to visible interchanges.
CHROMOSOMAL TRANSLOCATIONS IN INTERSPECIFIC HYBRIDS OF THE GENUS GOSSYPIUM
In the past cytologists have made considerable contributions toward an understanding of the systematics of the genus Gossypium. Especially, Skovsted (19331937), Webber (1934-1939) and Beasley
CHROMOSOMAL TRANSLOCATIONS IN INTERSPECIFIC HYBRIDS OF THE GENUS GOSSYPIUM
TLDR
The present paper represents a study of metaphase associations in the pollen mother cells of some hybrids from the sections Herbacea, Anomala and Hirsuta which show a high degree of chromosome conjugation.
Bridging Classical and Molecular Cytogenetics of Gossypium
TLDR
The achievements of classical and molecular cytogenetic investigations in Gossypium are summarized and the relevance of bridging these approaches in GOSSypium genetic studies and exploitation is underlined.
Comparative studies of seed enzymes of species of Gossypium by polyacrylamide and starch gel electrophoresis
TLDR
Diploidization and a recently proposed regulation mechanism as possible evolutionary processes for higher organisms were discussed in relation to these isozyme differences observed in the natural allotetraploids.

Polyploid Cottons Obtained Through Use of Colchicine. I. Cytological Observations in Octoploid Gossypium hirsutum
TLDR
Octoploid and tetraploid plants were obtained from seeds of Gossypium hirsutum and G. herbaceum treated with colchicine and the plants are highly sterile, with a few chromosomal irregularities observed and the pollen grains are larger than in the normal tetraPloid plants.
Chromosome studies in the malvaceae and certain related families. II
TLDR
On historical grounds it is suggested that American tetraploid cottons arose in America in Pre-Columbian times from diploid American types and not from an American-Asiatic cross.
The Distribution of Chromosomes in Tetraploid Daturas
(1) The chromosomes at the late prophase and metaphase of the first, or reduction division, in true tetraploid Daturas, are as a rule joined in quadrivalents, which in most cases are formed of two
The Meiotic Divisions of Haploid, Diploid and Tetraploid Tomatoes with Special Reference to the Prophase
TLDR
The tomato polyploid series, haploid, diploid, and tetraploid has been described with special reference to the prophase of microsporogenesis and subsequent behavior is normal and similar to that of the diploids.
Crossing-Over, Fragmentation, and Formation of New Chromosomes in an Allium Species Hybrid
TLDR
The hybrid between A. cepa and A. fistulosum is unusual because of the high frequency of complete pairing, fragmentation, and formation of chromatin bridges, which probably arise from unusual crossing-over.
Meiotic Studies in Triploid Tulipa with Special Reference to Bridging and Fragmentation
TLDR
The cottage tulip, Inglescombe Yellow, behaves cytologically as an autotriploid, twelve trivalents at metaphase I not being rare, and it was possible to separate three different triploid tulip varieties on the basis of the frequency distributions of extra nuclear chromatin bodies in their microspores.
THE IRON-ACETOCARMINE METHOD OF FIXING AND STAINING CHROMOSOMES
TLDR
The method has now been used almost daily for five years, and certain improvements have suggested themselves, and the amount of iron varies with different objects.
Genetics and the Origin of Species
TLDR
This research attacked the mode confusion problem by exploring the role of mutation as a basis for racial and SPECIFIC differences in biodiversity.
