Abstract

The suitability of stomata length as a criterion in the distinction between diploid and tetraploid rye-grass plants was tested.

From the data it appears that diploid and tetraploid plants can be separated with a large degree of certainty if the selection is based on the stomata length.

Samenvatting

De bruikbaarheid van stomatalengte als criterium bij het onderscheiden van di- en tetraploïde raaigrasplanten werd onderzocht.

Uit de gegevens blijkt, dat met selectie op basis van stomatalengte diploïde en tetraploïde planten met grote zekerheid gescheiden kunnen worden.
