Abstract

The selection coefficient for the deficiency allele and the proportion of the two alleles in the populations are estimated. The apparent vegetative and reproductive vigour in the populations with the factor is attributed to the combined effect of low population density caused by the death of the double recessives and the higher selective value of the heterozygotes in these populations. A model of balanced polymorphism involving a recessive lethal is suggested to explain the results. A major part of this work was carried out at the Dept. of Botany, Andhra University, Waltair.
