On p. 181 the phrases ‘wild to mutant’ and ‘mutant to wild’ in lines 8–9 in the third paragraph should be interchanged: p and r are correction frequencies from mutant to wild and q and s are correction frequencies from wild to mutant, as is apparent in the Table immediately following.
On p. 188 the calculated ratios p/q and r/s may appear to be at variance with the values given in Table 2. This is due to the latter having been rounded to two significant figures. The more accurate values for the + × h3 cross are as follows: p = 0·043, q = 0·161, r = 0·157, s = 0·426 (firstsolution) and p′ = 0·026, q′ = 0·493, r′ = 0·243 and s′ = 0·128 (second solution).
On p. 191 (foot of page) some primes are misplaced. The correct formulae for r, q and s (as given on p. 182) are:
On p. 194, line 7, G = 2B + C should read G = 2B + D.
