Given a plant species A with a diploid number of 10 and a plant species B with a diploid number 0f 18, I describe how new polyploid species C could arise in a single generation from hybridization between A and B. I also describe the process (including cell division events) and tell what the probable diploid number of C would be.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 4:24 pm ad1c9bdddf
In this question,
A species dilpoid number of chromosome=10
therefore haploid number of chromosome=5 (after meiosis)
B species diploid number of chromosome=18
therefore, haploid number of chromosome=9 (after meiosis)
Gametes from species A and species can ...
Ideas related to meiosis and mitosis are implied.
