Genetic mapping in plants are often constructed utilizing segregating populations from crosses between inbred lines, but this strategy is not possible for many of those plants that have high heterozygosity and long life cycles, such as forest trees (Grattapaglia and Sederoff, 1994), fruit trees (Kenis and Keulemans, 2005), perennial flowers (Dunemann et al., 1999; Hibrand-Saint Oyant et al., 2008), etc.
