Results of Monohybrid Crosses

Mendel got the following results from his monohybrid crosses :-

1.         F1 plants produced by a cross between two plants pure for the contrasting traits of a character are similar and express only one contrasting trait, i.e; resemble only one parent. None is intermediate between the two alternative traits of parents.

2.         It does not matter which parent provides male gamete and which provides female gamete, the results remain the same. In other words, the reciprocal crosses produce similar F1 plants.

3.         Both the contrasting traits appear in the F2 plant.

4.         The contrasting trait of a character expressed in F1 plants appears in three-fourths of the F2 plants.

5.         One of the two contrasting traits of a character remains unexpressed (hidden) in F1 generation.
