A complete, six-parent diallel cross plus F2's and backcrosses was used to study the inheritance of basic ovule number in Pisum sativum L. Ovule number was found to be controlled by a simple additive genetic system. Dominance effects were of no relative importance. There was some slight indication of partial dominance for low over high ovule number. Heritability was estimated as 0.38; no reciprocal effects were found.
