There is an old review by Westergaard that is pretty good.  If
nobody else posts it I'll dig it up for you.

Some of the latest:

Mulcahy et al. (1992) DNA probes for the Y-chromosome of Silene
latifolia, a dioecious angiosperm. Sexual Plant Reproduction 5: 86-88.

This paper describes the use of bulked segregant analysis to
find RAPDs on the Y.
