Further studies on the inheritance of leaf size in broadleaf birdsfood trefoil, Lotus corniculatus L



Further studies on the inheritance of leaf size in broadleaf birdsfood trefoil, Lotus corniculatus L



Canadian J Genet Cytol 6(2): 164-169



Results from 4 third-backcross populations are presented which further illustrate the essential autotetraploid nature of leaf size inheritance. Two populations segregated 12:2:1, one population segregated 2:1 and the other 2:1:1. The 1:2:2:1 ratio is considered to be a variation of the 1:4:1 ratio expected in the progeny of a duplex X quadriplex cross, where the alleles show no dominance, only dosage effects. The 2:1 and 2:1:1 ratios in themselves cannot be directly associated with autotetraploidy. However, because of the close relationship of each with a population that segregated 1:2:2:1 and similarities in size of sub-population means within the 2 pairs of populations, the 2 ratios are considered to have some basis in tetraploidy.
