Abstract

In about half of the angiosperm species the gamete chromosome number is a multiple of that found in some related species. This and the fact that polyploidy has such a pronounced effect on plant physiology and growth, as pointed out by Noggle, serve only to emphasize the importance of understanding more about polyploid genetics.
