THE INHERITANCE OF LEAF-LACINIATION IN COTTON

Published on

LEAF shape in cotton is dependent upon the length of the leaf and the number,
width and depth (sinus-length or laciniation) of the lobes, the latter, being the
most prominent characteristic determining leaf-shape. Leaf shape varies
widely between species and between varieties within a species and this character
has been used as one of the criteria in taxonomic classification. Several
workers have utilized leaf-indices, based on the different components of leaf
shape, referred to above, in grouping cotton varieties (Afzal, 1930; Hutchinson,
1934; Silow, 1939; Stephens, 1944).
