The transmission of B chromosomes in populations of Secale cereale and Secale vavilovii 1. Offspring obtained from 0B and 2B plants

The transmission of rye B chromosomes in experimental populations of Secale cereale and S. vavilovii was studied. B chromosomes were introduced from S. cereale into S. vavilovii by hybridisation and backcrossing. Populations were established with plants carrying 0B or 2B chromosomes at different frequencies. Each population was isolated and allowed to… CONTINUE READING
