Additional information

These studies were largely undertaken at the Division of Botany, I.A.R.I., New Delhi where the authors were previously located. They are, therefore, grateful to the Director, I.A.R.I., Dean of P. G. School and Head of the Division of Botany for their keen interest and facilities. One of us (M.A.T.) is also grateful to the Department of Agriculture, Government of Maharashtra, for encouragement during the course of this investigation.
