Gamete fertility and ovule number variation in selfed reciprocal f1 hybrid triploid plants are heritable and display epigenetic parent-of-origin effects
Polyploidy and hybridization play major roles in plant evolution and reproduction. To investigate the reproductive effects of polyploidy and hybridization in Arabidopsis thaliana, we analyzed fertility of reciprocal pairs ...
