Reversible sex-mutants in Lychnis dioica

Shull, George Harrison (November 1911) Reversible sex-mutants in Lychnis dioica. Botanical Gazette, 52 (5). pp. 329-368.



The hermaphrodites of Lychnis dioica are modified males. They are of two kinds, which are here distinguished as "genetic" and "somatic" hermaphrodites. When the genetic hermaphrodites are used as pollen parents, either when self-fertilized or in crosses with females, their progenies consist of females and hermaphrodites.
