Nuclear DNA amounts in angiosperms
Nuclear DNA amounts have been estimated for more than 200 angiosperm species since the last collected list of such values for about 750 species was published by Bennett & Smith in 1976 (Phil. Trans.Expand

Nuclear dna amounts in angiosperms.
The number of angiosperm species for which nuclear DNA amount estimates have been made has nearly trebled since the last collected lists of such values were published, and therefore, publication of aExpand

Comparisons with Caenorhabditis (∼100 Mb) and Drosophila (∼175 Mb) Using Flow Cytometry Show Genome Size in Arabidopsis to be ∼157 Mb and thus ∼25 % Larger than the Arabidopsis Genome Initiative
Recent genome sequencing papers have given genome sizes of 180 Mb for Drosophila melanogaster Iso-1 and 125 Mb for Arabidopsis thaliana Columbia. The former agrees with early cytochemical estimates,Expand

Many components of cell and nuclear size and mass are correlated with nuclear DNA content in plants, as also are the durations and rates of such developmental processes as mitosis and meiosis. It isExpand

Nuclear DNA Amounts in Angiosperms and their Modern Uses—807 New Estimates
The DNA amount in the unreplicated haploid nucleus of an organism is known as its C-value. C-values differ about 1000-fold among angiosperms and are characteristic of taxa. The data are used in manyExpand

PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF DNA C-VALUES PROVIDES EVIDENCE FOR A SMALL ANCESTRAL GENOME SIZE IN FLOWERING PLANTS
DNA C-value is a highly variable aspect of plant biodiversity whose origin and significance has often attracted general interest. Evaluation of the phylogenetic component of genome size variation isExpand

Reference standards for determination of DNA content of plant nuclei.
Flow cytometry was used to compare 14 potential reference standards for plant DNA content determination. Both chicken and plant internal standards were used, as were propidium iodide (PI) andExpand

Evolution of genome size in the angiosperms.
Genome size varies extensively across the flowering plants, which has stimulated speculation regarding the ancestral genome size of these plants and trends in genome evolution. We investigated theExpand

Genome downsizing in polyploid plants
All else being equal, polyploids are expected to have larger C-values (amount of DNA in the unreplicated gametic nucleus) than their diploid progenitors, increasing in direct proportion with ploidy.Expand
