Abstract

Introduction: Shortly after the rediscovery of Mendel's work in 1900, Correns (1909) reported the maternal inheritance of a chlorophyll deficiency in Mirabilis jalapa and Baur (1909) described biparental transmission in Pelargonium zonale. Since then, the pattern of plastid transmission has been determined genetically in some 60 species of angiosperms (see Kirk and Tilney-Bassett, 1978; Tilney-Bassett and Abdel-Wahab, 1979, and references therein). Recently, there have been genetic reports that indicate that plastids are inherited maternally in Glycine max (Palmer and Mascia, 1980; Shoemaker et al., 1985).
