Nice.  I think this helps explain variability, just as variability  shows=up
when the F2 generations are sib-crossed. Just an opinion, --I think I'd l=ike
to hear from Suzanne R.  on this and get some detail on how the research =is
conducted.  i.e., how does one determine which is the more ancient in
lineage, by comparing chromatographs of two extracts.  Is the ordering of
development of plant pigments known ?  regarding which is older?  which i=s
more recent?  How does it work? Adam Fikso
