Translocation heterozygosity and sex ratio in Viscum fischeri


SummaryMale plants of V. fischeri have 2n = 23 and constantly produce seven bivalents and a multivalent chain of nine chromosomes at meiosis. Regular assortment results in transmission of 11- and 12-chromosome genomes via the pollen. Female plants have the chromosome number 2n = 22 and are homozygous for the 11-chromosome genome. The multivalent chain in… (More)
