  • Arc cosine transformation of the percentage values was compared by analysis of variance. Within each group of allopolyploids (natural and nonnatural), values followed by common letters are not significantly different (P ≤ 0.05).

  • a Significantly higher (P ≤ 0.05) than in the F1 of the CSSs in the natural and nonnatural allopolyploids.

  • b Significantly higher (P ≤ 0.009) than the nonnatural all sequences mean.
