A diallel cross consisting of ten parents was grown on the
Hyslop Agronomy Farm near Corvallis, Oregon, in order to obtain
estimates of the gene action contributing to yield and its components
in wheat. Gene action estimates were obtained by two methods of
diallel analysis and from narrow sense heritability...
Experimental crosses between Rana pretiosa pretiosa Baird
and Girard and Rana cascadae Slater, resulted in viable hybrids.
Reciprocal differences at the time of fertilization are indicated. A
high level of success in producing viable hybrids can be obtained if
Rana pretiosa pretiosa is the female of the parent species, The...
In an attempt to study the times in the lifecycle of
Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus at which various genes are
transcribed, the patterns of messenger ribonucleic acid
(mRNA) and ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) syntheses
were examined using two different types of hybridization
systems. The hybridization system using membrane bound
deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)...
Hybrids with abnormal development were obtained when particular
genotypes of Phaseolus vulgaris L. were crossed. The phenotypic
aberrations of the F₁s included retarded growth, chlorosis of the
trifoliate leaves and the formation of adventitious roots on the
hypocotyls. The expression of the abnormalities was dependent on the
temperature. At high...
Centaurea solstitialis L. (yellow starthistle) and C. × moncktonii Britt. (meadow knapweed) are members of the genus Centaurea in the Asteraceae family. Both species have become serious management concerns as invasive species in North America, often displacing native vegetation and costing land managers millions of dollars to eradicate. Seven plants...
