In practice however, WGDs are often followed by loss of some or all of the duplicated genes, or even chromosomes, in a process referred to as diploidization (see Wolfe, 2001).

Studies of retention of selected duplicate genes following diploidization of ancient polyploidization events have found that many duplicate genes have been preferentially maintained in a dosage-sensitive relationship [56].
The origin of such high chromosome number was a matter of debate and two hypotheses were proposed, as it was said before: one suggesting that homosporous ferns are true polyploids, resulting from repeated cycles of polyploidy, followed by a process of diploidization with a massive gene silencing; while the other, suggested that they are true diploids having achieved high chromosome numbers via other mechanisms (Barrington et al.

In a number of polyploid plants the presence of more or less similar mechanisms of"diploidization" has been suggested: e.g., Avena (Ladizinsky, 1973; Jauhar, 1977), Festuca L.
