IV. Some Recent Papers on the Cytogenetics of Maize
During the past year several maize geneticists have written to the Co-op for a list of recent publications in maize. In view of this demand, what do you think of the idea of making such a list a part of the annual Maize Genetics Cooperation News Letter? Most of the maize literature to 1935 is included in the combined bibliographies of "Genetics of Zea Mays" by W. H. Eyster, and "A Summary of Linkage Studies in Maize" by Emerson, Beadle, and Fraser. If these bibliographies were brought up to date, a list of all the papers published between February, 1939, and February, 1940, could be included in the 1940 News Letter, and all those to February, 1941, in the following News Letter.
If your reaction to this suggestion is favorable, will you help bring the following list of papers up to date (I have more than likely missed some)?
