Cover for Aneuploidy and ploidy in the endosperm: dosage, imprinting, and maternal effects on development.

For nearly 100 years, it has been recognized that changes in the dosage of parts of plant genomes (aneuploidy) impact their development, stature, and vigour, even more than changes in copies of the entire genome (polyploidy). The first studies of aneuploidy and polyploidy, using Datura stramonium,...
