al·lo·ploid

(al'ō-ployd),
Relating to a hybrid individual or cell with two or more sets of chromosomes derived from two different ancestral species; depending on the number of multiples of haploid sets, alloploids are referred to as allodiploids, allotriploids, allotetraploids, allopentaploids, allohexaploids, etc.

1 an individual, an organism, a strain, or a cell that has two genetically distinct sets of chromosomes derived from different ancestral species, as occurs in hybridization.
2 also allodiploidic, pertaining to such an individual, an organism, a strain, or a cell. Compare allopolyploid, autodiploid. allodiploidy, n. autopolyploid.

whitei the third genome addition occurs at the time when two reduced nonsister nuclei fuse to restore the allodiploid RG structure.
whitei represent the only known example of hemiclonal and clonal reproduction shared by the same allodiploid hybrids, which are also indistinguishable on an allozymic basis (Mantovani et al.
In evolutionary terms, paternal ancestor individuals deriving from hybrids (androgens) play different roles in both the hybridogenetic and the parthenogenetic Bacillus reproductive systems: coexisting males of the fathering taxon are crucial for the maintenance of the hemiclonal system, whereas, through genome addition to the parthenogenetic eggs, they promote the production of polyploid clones from allodiploid females.
In these cases, triploids have been generated by the addition of a haploid genome from a biparental species to that of an allodiploid congeneric parthenogen or gynogen.
carinata BBCC): Homoeologous pairing is more pronounced in the three-genome hybrids (TACC, TBAA, TCAA, TCBB) as compared to allodiploids (TA, TB, TC).
