The utility of plant test systems for detecting chemically induced aneuploidy was evaluated by using papers published in peer reviewed journals. A total of 147 papers was provided to the group by the Environmental Mutagen Information Center. Based on the criteria established by the Gene-Tox Committee (Waters and Auletta, 1981), 22 papers were selected for in-depth review. Only those papers listing addition, deletion, or a lagging chromosome(s) in the meiotic or mitotic cells were included in this review. Although most plant test systems may be developed to utilize either mitotic or meiotic cells for cytogenetic analysis, only a few have been employed for this purpose.
