Variation and geographical distribution of ploidy levels in Pennisetum section Brevivalvula (Poaceae) in Burkina Faso, Benin, and southern Niger



Variation and geographical distribution of ploidy levels in Pennisetum section Brevivalvula (Poaceae) in Burkina Faso, Benin, and southern Niger



Plant Systematics and Evolution 198(1/2): 89-100



Pennisetum sect. Brevivalvula is a species complex characterized by polyploidy and apomixis. Ploidy level was assessed by DAPI-flow cytometry for 304 plants of the section, originating from Burkina Faso, Benin and southern Niger. The results were confirmed for 54 plants based on chromosome counts.
