  • Marker, genetic marker used; bin, approximate region of maize genetic map; n, number of individuals in analysis; high class, genotype class with highest trait value: M, homozygous maize; T, homozygous teosinte; H, heterozygous; uRNK, ear rank of terminal ear of uppermost branch; sRNK, ear rank of terminal ear of second branch from top (below uppermost); BLN, blank vegetative nodes between uppermost lateral branch and tassel. For other definitions see Table 2 legend. Only significant trends are shown. For trait values and remaining traits, see supplemental materials at http://www.genetics.org/supplemental/.
