Additive and multiplicative effects of colchicine treatment at the seedling stage and of chromosome doubling on chromosome-specific chiasma frequency at metaphase I have been measured in comparisons between C0 and untreated diploids and between C0 autotetraploids and C0 diploids. Early colchicine treatment increases the frequency of chromosome C univalents to 1.8% but has no similar effect on chromosomes A and D. Colchicine treatment has little net effect on mean chiasma frequency, deducting an average of 0.204 chiasmata per set but otherwise multiplying the mean by a factor of 1.182. These additive and multiplicative effects represent averages of six phenotypes. Chromosome doubling in a tetraploid-diploid chimaera subtracts an average of 0.265 chiasmata per set but otherwise doubles the numbers of chiasmata at the diploid level (x 2.134). Comparison of six diploids and tetraploids reveals modest average additive (+ 1.103) and multiplicative effects (x 1.190). The implications of these findings are discussed in the light of new analyses of previously published data. Key words : chiasmata, Crepis, colchicine, meiosis, polyploidy.
