Maize is a monoecious species bearing separate male and female flowers (tassel and ear, respectively). The switch from open-pollinated populations of maize to hybrid-based breeding schemes in the early 20th century was accompanied by a dramatic reduction in tassel size, and the trend has continued with modern breeding over the recent by: 6.

The blossoming of maize genetics. Maize has a rich history of genetics studies, with insights and mechanisms stretching back through most of the past century ().The study of maize quantitative traits stretches back nearly as long (for example, Shull, ; Emerson and East, ), but in most cases the insights were gleaned from specific experimental Cited by: genetics at the turn of the 20th century.

Similarly, the important concept in quantitative genetics and plant breeding is genetic gain (DG), which is the predicted e.g. grain moisture at harvest in maize. Components of variation (s2) that contribute to the SD of the phenotypic distribution (s PCited by: There have been recently a number of publications reviewing the development of different sciences during the past century.
