Abstract:
Two investigations, one of the inheritance of stomatal regulation and its relation to heat tolerance and the other of seed gossypol content in Gossvpium barbadense, began yielding results in 1992. Mode of gene action conferring stomatal conductance varied with the parentage of crosses. Selective advance for high conductance appeared to be feasible in wide crosses, but limited in crosses of elite Pima strains. Variability for seed gossypol content in G. barbadense was surprisingly high. There was evidence of geographic and taxonomic structure to the variability observed. A conversion program to convert photoperiodic short-day flowering accession's of the G. barbadense germplasm collection to day neutrality continued.
