The paper reviews the significance and frequency of naturally occurring aneuploidy in higher plants. The role and mechanism of induction of aneuploidy by radiation, chemicals, thermal shocks, and self hybridization of polyploids and aneuploids in generating primary and secondary aneuploids is discussed. The utility of aneuploids in gene and chromosome transfer for plant improvement is reviewed.
