I-Iutehinson (1947) grouped Gossypiu~ a~'eysianum with G. anoma~um and G. t~'i~hyltum in the section Anomala of the genus Gossyl)ium. This classification was based on a description by Deflers of a specimen of G. a~'eysianum that he collected in southern Arabia in 1893. Deflers's specimen is kept at the Paris herbarium. Since 19~9, G. a~'eysia~zum has been grown in culture and crossed with other Gossypium species at Shambat, in order to obtain more evidence concerning its relationships. In this…

Cytological and genetical studies of the hybrid ofGossypium herbaceum L. andG. triphyllum Hoch
Studies of the F1 and segregating families showed that G. triphyllum carries the complementary factorsRinf2supΘSRinfasupGO for petal spot,Ya(Yb) YinfcsupP for cream petal,pa for cream pollen, andYap for depression of yellow petal pigment.
The production, history, uses and relationships of cotton (Gossypium spp.) in Ethiopia
This work reviews the available information and indicates the possible place of Ethiopia in the origin and development of the cultivated cottons.
Introgression of genes for cotton leaf curl virus resistance and increased fiber strength from Gossypium stocksii into upland cotton (G. hirsutum).
The possibility of transferring virus resistant genes from the wild species Gossypium stocksii into MNH-786, a cultivar of G. hirsutum, and it is concluded that it is possible to transfer CLCuVD resistance and high fiber strength from G. stocksii to G.


The cytological relationships ofGossypium somalense gürke
Gossypium somalense is shown to have 13 pairs of chromosomes, and the cytological relationship between the three species is discussed in connexion with their classification on morphological grounds and with their geographical distribution.
The comparative genetics ofGossypium anomalum and the cultivated Asiatic cottons
A large number of the questioned species have been confirmed to be Asiatic species, and the situation is likely to have changed since the publication of the first report on these species in 2013.
Meiotic Chromosome Behavior in Species, Species Hybrids, Haploids, and Induced Polyploids of Gossypium.
Data is used in an attempt to define more accurately the relationships of Gossypium species and to make clearer the process of speciation of the genus.
