    • Abstract


      Variations in the microtopography of seed coat in eight natural populations ofV. radiata var.sublobata inhabiting the Palney Hills of Western Ghats (Tamil Nadu) were investigated with the help ofSEM. The seed coat patterns are population specific, and the different patterns can be conveniently classified into two types. It appears that the polymorphism in seed coat patterns is of genetic origin and is the consequence of adaptation to spatio-temporal environments.
