Pale cream of Upland or Sea Island White, and yellow of grades 1 to 7, form an allelomorphic pair of characters which may be represented by the factor pair
Segregation in inter-specific crosses is more complicated than in inter-Peruvian crosses, in that many intermediate grades of yellow are found in
Upland and Sea Island White are both genetically
The total number of modifiers is not known, nor has the attempt made to distinguish their specific effects been successful. Probably not less than 2 nor more than 7 modifiers are concerned.
The occurrence of grades lighter or darker than the parents in the
Some Uplands have intensifiers capable of raising Sea Island from grade 4 to grade 6, but there is no ease where Upland has intensified the colour of a Bourbon variety.

1. Further experiments are described on the mode of inheritance and distribution in six species of New World cottons of a pair of duplicate factors for chlorophyll deficiency.
2. Duplication of factors is considered to have taken place through polyploidy with subsequent mutation of one or other of the members constituting the pair in some of the species.
3. The experimental data support Haldane’s view that in polyploid species one member of a pair of duplicate genes may mutate without disadvantage, provided its functions can be performed by a gene in one of the other sets of chromosomes.
4. The taxonomic and evolutionary significance of the results is discussed and it is suggested that the extent to which the dimeric condition is converted to the monomeric in polyploid species may provide some indication of the age of the species. In an old series of allopolyploids such as the New World species of

4. Minor colour factors were also correlated with variations in lint length.
5. The blending type of inheritance of brown lint in Egyptian × Sea Island is considered to be due to the disintegration by human agency of an original brown-lint factor complex.

3. It is believed that species may possess modifier complexes, the effect of which is to preserve the stability of genes and prevent them from mutating at an excessive rate.
4. The genes
5. Other cases of mutability in interspecific hybrids are mentioned, and the possible significance to the plant breeder of mutability consequent on interspecific hybridization is referred to.
