- The effect of gamma rays on meiosis in the M₂ generation has been studied in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) variety Ekiz 1. Seeds were irradiated with gamma rays at 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 kR doses. Radiation induced meotic abnormalities. The chromosomal aberrations included univalents, multivalents and stickiness at diakinesis, laggards and stickiness at metaphase I, bridges and laggards at anaphase and telophase I-II, micronuclei at telophase II. The percentage frequencies of anomalies increased generally with the increasing dose of radiation.
