Quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting the total number of leaves made before fl owering and the number of leaves below the uppermost ear (NLBE) were mapped and characterized using the intermated B73 × Mo17 recombinant inbred lines (IBMRILs) of maize (Zea mays L.). B73 and Mo17 typically make 20 and 17 leaves, 14 and 11 of which are below the ear. Total number of leaves and the number of leaves below the uppermost ear are ~80% heritable in the IBMRILs, which show strongly transgressivedoi:10.3835/plantgenome2008.06.0385 fatcat:ype5yczpcbcrrgrla7dqw7wfa4
