Re: literature on mit rec

Like I said in another post, I do know yellow in hosta is a nuclear 
gene - don't know why you would assume otherwise.

Ben, you still have NOT proven that mitotic recombination is the 
reason why yellow hostas develop green edges.  Until that time you 
have to say that mitotic recombination MAY be a cause of it, but that 
other causes are just as likely.  

>just as he nows seems to accept after my article in the AHS that the 
>first leaf in Hosta seedling is a true leaf, not a cotyl

I know that cotyledons in some plants stay underground, but you were 
trying to tell us at the time that monocots did NOT have cotyledons! 

Now, of the four citations, only four for the entire higher plants, 
how many of them actually PROVED the mitotic recombination.  You can 
set up experiments that SUGGEST mitotic recombination, but proving it 
is mitotic recombination is something else.  I've read some of the 
articles where the evidence suggested mitotic recombination, but even 
the authors state that the results only suggest mitotic recombination, 
not prove it.
