Sempervirens tree so now one can use this system to test the single-daddy hypothesis. Let’s start with formulating the null hypothesis. If normal male and female meioses were followed by fertilization between haploid male and female gametes then every embryo would have same maternal haplotype of A1-B6 plus it would have inherited one of four paternal haplotypes A5-B3 or A7-B9 (parental or nonrecombinant) or either of the two recombinant haplotypes. But this was not the case. All seeds collected from the maternal parent will have the exact same genotype as the paternal parent: A5-B3 /A7-B9.
