  • a Adults are the total of male and female F2 hybrids for indicated cross(es).

  • b χ2 value is measure of deviation from a model of independent gene action for the three genes, RISP, CYC1, and CYC (discussed in methods); P-values are calculated with 26 d.f. P-values <0.05 are indicated in italics.

  • c Application of the sequential Bonferroni method to the data in this table yields a critical P-value of 0.0042 (α=0.05); none of the values exceed this threshold.
