Significant Cotton Literature

The following is a collection of references that, we believe, represent many of the import contributions that have been made by Cotton researchers over the past century. Many have stood the test of time, becoming classics, and others are likely to do so. The list, organized by decade, includes links to journal or other archive sites. Links either provide PDF/text downloads or access/location information.
