Ok.. i have another question about hybrids names and characteristics. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
If the protocol is that the fisrt species that appears in a hybrid's name is the seedpod bearer (mother) and then the 2nd is the pollen provider (father). Then, do these hybids show more characteristics from the mother or from the father? Which parent will have the dominant informamation that will be given to the new generation?
To explain myself better i'll give you examples [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
I have a N. x Dominii (rafflesiana x gracilis). This hybrid show more characteristics from the gracilis (father) than the refflesiana (mother).
Another example is N. x tiveyi (maxima x veitchii). It has more veitchii than maxima on its characteristics.
So, my conclusion is that hybrids show more characteristic from the father than from the mother. Geneticly talking, the pollen seems to provide more information than the ovule. Is this a regular pattern, or this is only a coinsidence that i have noticed?
Obviously i am talking about the fenotipic details(external characteristics). Not about genotipic (DNA, behavior, etc).
