Emerson, R.A. (1916) A genetic study of plant height in Phaseolus vulgaris (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 7)
When pole and bush beans are crossed, 3:1 segregation results whether the pole bean is very tall or only medium in height and whether the bush bean is very short or relatively tall. To determine the interrelation of these two types of behavior by an analysis of the factors concerned in height of plants in beans and by a study of their mode of inheritance was the object of the investigations reported here.
