MetadataShow full item record
In the present paper, karyotype analyses are reported for 12 taxa of Matthiola from Turkey. Matthiola trojana Dirmenci, Satil & Tümen, M. odoratissima (Pall.) R.Br., M. anchonifolia Hub.-Mor., M. montana Boiss., M. fruticulosa (L.) Maire ssp. fruticulosa and M. ovatifolia (Boiss.) Boiss. counted 2n=12 chromosomes, and M. incana (L.) R.Br., M. longipetala (Vent.) DC. ssp. bicornis (Sibth. et Smith) P. W. Ball, M. longipetala (Vent.) DC. ssp. longipetala, M. longipetala (Vent.) DC. ssp. pumilio (Sibth. & Smith) P. W. Ball, M. sinuata (L.) R.Br., and M. tricuspidata (L.) R.Br. showed 2n=14 chromosomes. The idiograms and karyomorphometric data obtained by using Image Analysis System (Bs200Pro). The chromosome number of M. montana was determined for the first time. Also, karyotype asymmetry index such as MCA, CVCL and CVCL were measured for the reconstruction of karyological relationships. © 2016 The Japan Mendel Society.
