F2 linkage results are presented in Table l with a= XY, b= Xy, c= xY and d= xy for the eight gene pairs listed in the fonn of Xx and Yy. Percentage recombination was obtained from the ratio products following Irrmer and Henderson (1943). The data for each of the gene pairs gave a good fit to a 3:1 ratio.
