Question regarding polygenes


Recommended Posts

I have a biology reference book stating that


"polygenic inheritance is applied when multiple independent of genes have similar and additive effects on the same character. Alleles at several, perhaps many, loci affect each character."


What i was wondering is whether these loci controlling a single character are situated at the same chromosome or are they scattered at different chromosomes?
