- The interrelationships of five phenotypically distinct brown lint varieties of upland cotton and one brown barbadense variety were investigated. It was demonstrated that four of the upland browns, Nankeen, Arvin, Algerian, and Texas Rust, are members of the same series of alleles, and that Brymer is controlled by a gene at another independent locus. Mohaux, a barbadense brown, was shown to be nonhomologous to the Nankeen locus in upland. Gene symbols have not been assigned the various browns investigated. Additional studies on the relationships of these stocks to those previously studied in New World cottons as well as to brown Asiatic cottons are necessary before symbols adequately showing those relationships can be assigned.
