The genomic evolution of triploid plants with regular bivalent formation is discussed. The conclusion is reached that although all the progeny of an originally triploid individual will be triploid numerically, only part of the progeny will be triploid genomically. The consequences of this for triploid identification by means of chromosome morphology and isozyme numbers is discussed.
