Karyomorphological studies in the genus Curcuma Linn

Cytologia 64(3): 313-317

Karyomorphological studies in the genus Curcuma Linn

Karyotypes of 6 species of the genus Curcuma are reported for the first time. The species are C. aerugenosa C. caesia, C. comosa, C. haritha, C. malabarica and C. raktacanta. Somatic chromosome numbers are diploid (2n = 42) in C. comosa, C. haritha and C. malabarica, and triploid (2n = 63) in the remaining species. The karyotypes are symmetrical in all these species. However, considerable variation exists in chromosome morphology and structure among the species studied.
