Al ocurrir la meiosis en la celula madre de la megaspora, de tetraploides se forman gametos 2n y debido a que junto a estas crecian diploides, entonces se esperaria la formacion de triploides. Sin embargo, en la semilla de tetraploides no se encontraron plantas triploides, lo cual indica que las celulas que forman sacos embrionarios en las plantas tetraploides de esta poblacion posiblemente no llevan a cabo la meiosis, o que se forman gametos no reducidos por nucleos de restitucion.
The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust is currently examining the impact of releasing the triploid trout into a number of rivers including the Honddu, in Mid-Wales - which has been described as a location for "perfect" trout fishing - and the Arrow, in Herefordshire.
The original bluebunch (PI 232132) x thickspike (PI 236663) cross resulted in several triploid hybrids, from which the advanced generation breeding population was derived, designed to test the hypothesis that genetic introgression can occur between bluebunch and thickspike (Dewey, 1965).

(40,41) However, this marker has the limitation of not being able to discern PHMs from nonmolar specimens (the latter including both biparental diploid nonmolar specimens and digynic triploid nonmolar specimens) because all of these entities maintain p57 expression due to the presence of a maternal chromosome complement.
