Frequency and position of chiasmata at diplotene were studied in pollen mother cells and megaspore mother cells of the same plants of 2 wild Allium spp. (A. consanguineum and A. kachrooi) and 2 cultivated species (A. cepa and A. nigrum), all diploid with 2n = 16. Chiasma frequencies were higher in male than in female meiosis in all cases.
