represent autopolyploids, or presumed autopolyploids (Gavrilenko, 2007).
In autopolyploids, although the diversity of genetic potential increases by the development of new alleles, as has been shown in Tolmiea menziesii (Soltis & Rieseberg, 1986) and in Dactylis glomerata (Lum aret & Barrientos, 1990), an autopolyploid has very little chance of becoming established because multivalents form during meiosis, causing partial sterility.
Olah and DeFilipps (1968) concluded that this species is a polyhaploid derived from the autopolyploid D.
Other models for autopolyploids have been published (e.
