Sweet Pea Notebooks : Sweet pea notebook '04 F' [1904 crosses]

Sweet Pea Notebooks

Notebook recording Bateson and Punnett's experiments with sweet peas sown at the farm in 1904 (the letter F denotes plants grown at the farm). The general format of the record is that the parents are recorded as numbers with a superscript or sometimes a named variety. Since sweet peas can be selfed, some crosses have only a single parent. The date of sowing or planting out is often recorded, together with other observations on the plants such as colour. Some plants are marked ‘important’ e.g. pp <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(46);return false;'>26v-27r</a> and pp <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(110);return false;'>71v-72r</a>. The record on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(153);return false;'>104v-105r</a> includes a note initialled by Bateson. Records are skeletal from pp <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(208);return false;'>154-190</a> onward. The entry on page <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(247);return false;'>191</a> ends with the note 'rest need not be done', followed by a run of blank pages. At the back of the notebook are maps of the plant plots pp <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(252);return false;'>iv-vi</a>.
