Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

From the hereditary standpoint, color and size characters in either plants or animals are not equally well understood. In general, the inheritance of color, technically known as a qualitative character, has been rather satisfactorily determined. On the modern chromosome theory of heredity, the genetic factors responsible for the development of colors appear to be located on the various chromosomes of the species and apparently follow a regular, stable and predictable mode of inheritance from generation to generation. Environmental agencies play a relatively minor part in ;modifying such characters. It is for this reason, perhaps, that their inheritance has been so thoroly investigated.
