  • All 387 AFLP markers were tested against the null hypothesis of no association with either diplospory or parthenogenesis with 2 × 2 G-tests (d.f. = 1). For diplospory, 52 F1's with diplospory scores of 0–3% (meiotic scores 97–100%) were compared with 78 individuals with diplospory scores of 8–100% (meiotic scores 0–92%). For parthenogenesis, 30 individuals with seed production scores 0–1.6% were compared with 41 with scores ranging from 3.4 to 67.7%. Expected values were obtained from the inheritance model with the best fit for each marker. Model refers to those listed in Table 1. Four markers are significantly associated with parthenogenesis; 12 markers are significantly associated with diplospory with α' representing Bonferroni corrected α of 0.05.
