Peil et al. (2003) studied this phenomenon in detail. For dominant markers, five different polymorphic configurations are possible in a single cross when female and male progeny are considered separately and they found four of them. For 43 AFLP markers, complete co-segregation between the AFLP fragment and male sex was observed. Twenty-three sex-linked AFLP markers showed other segregation patterns. There was also recombination between sex-linked AFLP markers. Peil et al.
