  • The two gametes of individual B1 are denoted a and b, and the two gametes of B2 are c and d.

  • a The pattern is defined by the labeling developed by Nadot and Vayssiex (1973).

  • b The total probability of each subset of genotypically equivalent states is given on the first row. For example, Δ3 is the combined probability of states (11 12) and (11 21).

  • c Note that Cotterman (1940) and some later authors use 2k1 instead of k1 for this probability.
