___ provide only the potential for developing a particular phenotype. The extent to which that potential is realized, in many cases, depends on enviromental influences.
Genetic crosses with eukaryotes.
two diploid individuals are allowed to produce haploid gametes by meiosis.
fusion of male and female gametes produces zygotes from which the diploid progeny individuals are generated.
the phenotypes of the parents and offspring are analyzed to provide clues to the hereditary of those phenotypes.
