Distortion of expected Mendelian segregation ratios, commonly observed in many plant taxa, has been detected in an experimental three-generation inbred pedigree of Populus founded by interspecific hybridization between P. trichocarpa and P. deltoides. An RFLP linkage map was constructed around a single locus showing severe skewing of segregation ratio against F2 trees carrying the P. trichocarpa allele in homozygous form. Several hypotheses for the mechanism of segregation distortion at this… CONTINUE READING
