C-banded karyotypes in theScilla hohenackeri group,S. persica, andPuschkinia (Liliaceae)
Quantitatively evaluated C-banding karyograms and further observations on karyotype structure are presented for Scilla persica, 7 species of the Scilla hohenackeri group, and Puschkinia scilloides, finding very diverse and species-specific banding patterns are found.
Phylogenetics of Hyacinthaceae based on plastid DNA sequences
From Scilla to Charybdis – is our voyage safer now?
Chloroplast microsatellite data suggest that determination of ploidy levels alone is insufficient to adequately describe the existing populations of the genus Charybdis Speta, and AFLP data indicate that tetraploid populations from southern Italy are of hybrid origin.
Chromosome banding and genome size differentiation inProspero (Hyacinthaceae): Diploids
Heterochromatin amount was generally low, but some karyotypes showed characteristic banding patterns, and the relationship between the chromosome complements with 2n = 14, 12 and 8 is discussed on the basis of idiograms and DNA amounts.

The essential differences between theScilla bifolia group (including the formerChionodoxa species) and other groups of myrmecochorousScilla species,Puschkinia andHyacinthus were shown.
Evolutionary Aspects of Chromosome Banding, Heterochromatin, Satellite DNA, and Genome Size in Scilla (Liliaceae)
Quantitative analyses of C-banded karyotypes, and systematics in the cultivated species of theScilla siberica group (Liliaceae)
The banding data support the systematic grouping proposed on a morphological basis, and provide additional evolutionary evidence, of two more closely related species pairs.

The present results confirm the recent taxonomic confirmation of S. vindobonensis fromS.
Karyological investigations in « Scilla » in regard to their importance for taxonomy
- F. Speta
- Environmental Science
The extremely heterogeneous genus Scilla L. sensu Baker (et al.) is highly variable also as to its karyological characters and the investigations are limited to species with areas around the Mediterranean and the Tertiary Paratethis.
