Abstract

Attention is called to the need for more systematic studies of cultivated plants. Various difficulties in the study of domesticated species are discussed with examples particularly from Capsicum and Lagenaria. Special attention is devoted to the problems of determining the wild ancestor and the original homeland of cultigens.
