THE gametic output from polysomic organisms of various genotypes can be expressed in terms of a single parameter, namely, the frequency of double reduction. This is the frequency with which a gamete receives two alleles derived from the same chromosome at meiosis. The term "double reduction" was first introduced by Darlington (1929) and defined as a case "where both chromatids of one chromosome pass into the same nucleus at the second telophase ". This offered an explanation for the appearance… CONTINUE READING
