Marker-order correlations between composite map and component map linkage groups; the GU-SA component map is not shown as this map was used as the seed-map (i.e. provided a fixed-order and all correlations were 1.0). For the GU-Emb component map, superscript letters indicates whether the framework (F) or comprehensive (C) linkage group was used in map construction. Component map linkage groups initially excluded from composite map construction are indicated by ex superscript. An asterisk following the correlation value indicates that marker-order information from the component map was incorporated during construction of the composite map linkage group. Apart from two correlations (indicated by ns superscript) all correlations were significant at α ≤ 0.05. Averages: acalculated using all six component maps, bcalculated using only those linkage groups included in composite map construction (marked with an asterisk), ccalculated using all 11 linkage groups, dcalculated using only those linkage groups included in composite map construction (marked with an asterisk).
