  diploid
A diploid can have large flowers, large plants and great flower substance, although if the same diploid plant is converted to a tetraploid, the plants' caracteristics will be enhanced.
SEEDS when pollinated with another diploid and a tetraploid will only form seeds when pollinated with another tetraploid.
The seeds of a diploid will produce diploid plants and the seeds of a tetraploid will produce tetraploid plants.

  Ploidy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In humans, most cells are diploid (containing one set of chromosomes from each parent), though sex cells (sperm and oocytes) are haploid.
Diploid cells (meaning double in Greek) have two copies (homologs) of each chromosome (both sex- and non-sex determining chromosomes), usually one from the mother and one from the father.
Even in diploid organisms many somatic cells are polyploid due to a process called endoreduplication where duplication of the genome occurs without mitosis (cell division).

 The Utility of the Diploid Map in Alfalfa Improvement
The usefulness of diploid maps in the breeding of tetraploid alfalfa depends on a high degree of similarity between the genomes of diploid and tetraploid alfalfa.
Diploid genetic maps in alfalfa should serve as an important framework for mapping in annual Medicago species, as well as in tetraploid species, and for transferring unique genes identified in diploids to the cultivated, tetraploid level.
Diploid and tetraploid alfalfa exhibit a large number of morphological and physiological differences, yet the genomes of these two forms are highly similar.

 Definition of ploidy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Haploid is having the same number of sets of chromosomes as a germ cell or half as many as a somatic cell.
Diploid is having two sets or a pair of chromosomes, as normally found in the somatic cell of higher organisms.
Aneuploid is a chromosome number that is not an exact multiple of the normal diploid number, with either fewer or more than the normal number of chromosome in the cell.

 Diploid   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Diploid cells have two copies of each somatic chromosome (non-sex chromosomes), usually one from the mother and one from the father.
Most somatic cells (body cells) of higher organisms are diploid or polyploid (three or more copies of each chromosome, often found in plants), whereas their reproductive cells are usually haploid (they have only one copy of each chromosome).
When reproducing, haploid sex cells (gametes) of both parents will generally merge to form a diploid cell, the zygote, with unique genetic properties, which quickly becomes the embryo.

 THE QUEST FOR UNREDUCED GAMETES: PART I
A cross of a diploid with a tetraploid (or vice versa) may result in a pod forming; however, the presence of a “triploid block” in daylilies prevents most of these from reaching maturity, and the pods fall off.
UGs on the pod side would be evidenced by a diploid daylily being pollinated by tetraploid pollen and forming viable seeds which germinate and produce tetraploid daylilies.
Both diploid (1n) and unreduced (2n) pollen are likely to be found on a daylily which is producing UGs.

Both diploid and tetraploid populations were variable, with 89% of loci polymorphic loci and more than three alleles per locus (Tables 1 - 4).
Diploids may produce unreduced (diploid) pollen or ovules which (in mixed populations) may fertilize or be fertilized by the gametes of tetraploids.
Diploid and tetraploid populations share most alleles, and the alleles unique to one group are rare.

The multicellular diploid plant structure is called the sporophyte, which produces spores through meiotic (asexual) division.
The fluctuation between these diploid and haploid stages that occurs in plants is called the alternation of generations.
The opposite is true for tracheophytes (vascular plants), in which the diploid generation is dominant and the sporophyte comprises the main plant.

In conjunction with diploid x octoploid crosses, backcrosses, and appropriate chromosome manipulations, molecular and biochemical markers will be used as gene tags to track the introgression from diploid to octoploid levels of specific genes for morphological/physiological traits.

 Diploid Fixation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Populations can be small of large, growing or shrinking, but in order to observe a fixation of a "neutral" gene we need a population that has been in a period of relative stasis, thus the assumption that we make is that size in not fluctuating.
So let us say we had in a fictitious diploid organism with 2 chromosomes one autosome, and the other not, passed by both sexes (we call it "Monoploid" because its my fictitious critter), but then one copy was digested after entry into zygote, randomly.
What this means is that at diploid loci, where diploid allelic copies are maintained, any effect that recombination has is necessarily going to amplify variation over haploids relative to mutation rate at those loci.

With more genetic research we are finding that much of disease is the result of genetic damage which is passed along to offspring and cannot be 'undone' by genetic recombination with genetic material from the other parent.
Regarding evolution, you may note that having diploid chromosomes, and potentially more genetic variety, offers a great potential for survival in the event chromosome option "A" is not well suited to the changing environment of an area.

The lack of any embryos that appeared to be diploid in our irradiated and non-heat shocked group suggests that the irradiation dosage was sufficient to destroy the maternal genome, or somehow impeded its transfer to the offspring.
Thus, we believe the surviving diploid embryos in the irradiated and heat shocked group, are indeed androgenetic rather than resulting from a failure to eliminate the maternal genome.
The survival of diploid zebrafish androgenotes suggests a lack of male specific imprinting of essential genes as has been observed in mammalian species.

Some species are diploid, grown from a diploid cell called the zygote.
As a diploid cell is formed from the genetic recombination of two haploid cells, within a diploid cell there are normally two sets of chromosomes that code for the same information, one from the mother's haploid cell and the other from the father's.
It is immediately followed by meiosis I, which divides one diploid cell into two haploid cells by separation of homologous chromosomes, and meiosis II, which divides two haploid cells into four haploid cells by separation of sister chromatids.
