Felder hypothesized that the autohexaploid plant resulted from the union of an unreduced female gamete and a reduced male gamete.
The apparent diploid with 2n = 14 M forms quadrivalents in frequencies expected in an autotetraploid; the 2n = 22 is meiotically autohexaploid and the 2n = 28 and 30 types, auto-octoploid.
Agropyron contains about 10 species and includes diploids, autotetraploids, and autohexaploids. We did not analyze the hexaploids in this study.
