Jere's dissertation on Pennisetum was done in the Crop Evolution Lab at
the University of Illinois in the 1970s.  The last I heard he was still
working with computers, not Pennisetum.  Ann Stemler, Tom Stalker, Khidir
Hilu, etc. were all students in the CEL in the 1970s, perhaps one of them
can help.  Tom is in the Dept. of Crop Sci., Box 7629, NC State Univ.,
Raleigh, NC 27695-7629.
