Belling(1) suggested that the chromosome rings found in Oenothera by Cleland(2) and others are to be explained as resulting from exchanges of ends between non-homologous chromosomes, so that one chromosome of a given complex is homologous at one end to one chromosome of a second complex, and at the other end to a different chromosome of the second complex. Hlkansson(3) and Darlington(4) have elaborated this view. In a recent issue of this JOURNAL Cleland and Blakeslee(5) have carried the analysis through in detail, showing that it gives self-consistent results. It enables one to predict the configurations of untried combinations, and is to a certain extent in agreement with the genetic data of Renner(6) and Oehlkers.(7)
