Cytotaxonomical investigations into the genus Chlorophytum from India


Cytotaxonomical investigations into the genus Chlorophytum from India



Kew Bulletin 67(2): 285-292



ISSN/ISBN: 0075-5974

DOI: 10.1007/s12225-012-9355-7

The genus Chlorophytum Ker-Gawl. exhibits a gamut of variation in its morphology and somatic chromosome counts which has made species delimitation in this taxon complex. The present investigation aims to confirm the previous reports on the somatic counts (2n) in this genus. The chromosome count and karyotype of C. breviscapum Dalzell is reported here for the first time. In addition, the paper attempts to present some diagnostic morphological characters which can be used to delimit taxa and to find correlation, if any, between these diagnostic characters and ploidy levels in this genus.
