  • For each case where LOD peaks of QTL for multiple traits map within 1 cM of one another, the chromosomal location (with S and L for short and long arms) and traits involved are listed.

  • a The alleles contributing to a more maize-like phenotype are listed for each trait involved. In all five cases of putative pleiotropy, the additive effects of the QTL alleles involved are in the same direction, m for ssp. mexicana and p for ssp. parviglumis (see Table 4).
