Population differentiation in an annual legume: Genetic architecture
Author(s): C. B. Fenster and L. F. Galloway
Article Topic(s): Genetics
Research Setting(s): Field
Species Referenced: Chamaecrista fasciculata (Partridge pea),
AbstractEvidence for heterosis was detected in the progeny of Chamaecrista fasciculata plants from artificial crosses of specific parental distances. In some cases, F-2 combinations had unexpected positive effects. However hybrid breakdown was observed in F-3s.
