The sweet pea, Lathyrus odoratus, has a well-documented history of the development of its cultivars in various parts of the world. Measurements of genome size, using flow cytometry, and observations on the karyotypes, as well as the analysis of meiotic pairing of F1 hybrids (between the wild sweet pea and two modern cultivars), all show that this(More)
Guard cell chloroplast numbers were counted in the tamarillo (Cyphomandra betacea (Cav.) Sendt.), the pepino (Solanum muricatum Ait.), and in wild relatives and polyploids of these species. Chloroplast number was found to be a reliable indicator of the euploid level in both species, but in aneuploids the effects of different chromosomes were variable. Some(More)
