  • Probabilities calculated for haploid and diploid gametes produced by a triploid pollen donor.

  • a Models with selection assume complete elimination of gametes bearing either a single (A) or double dose (AA) of an allele in the absence of a wild-type (a) allele.

  • b Disomic models assume complete preferential pairing of two homologs to the exclusion of a third univalent.

  • c Our assumption is that a nonrecombining univalent will segregate with one or the other preferentially pairing homolog. The inheritance of markers on a univalent is coincidentally equivalent to that of double-dose markers under complete recessive lethal-gametophytic selection.
