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.
See also: heterokaryon.

For example, Hedrick (1987) showed that variation in inbreeding depression among ferns was consistent with the prediction that inbreeding depression decreases with ploidy, and Belaoussoff and Shore (1995) suggested that relatively low inbreeding depression in nine populations of Turnera ulmifolia may be attributed to it being an allohexaploid. Similarly, inbreeding depression in synthesized tetraploids of wheatgrass (Dewey 1969), maize (Alexander 1960) and clover (Davies 1961; Townsend and Remmenga 1968) were lower than their respective diploid progenitors.
