At present 14 species of Potentilla L. have been cytologically worked out from different geographical areas of Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh in the Western Himalayas. New chromosome numbers in nine species—Potentilla argyrophylla (n = 14), P. atrosanguinea (n = 7, 14), P. desertorum (n = 7), P. gerardiana (n = 14), P. indica (n = 14), P. micropetala (n =(More)
In the present study, male meiosis was investigated in Lotus corniculatus from different geographical areas of the Kashmir Himalayas. The 2n = 4x = 24 in one cytotype of var. minor is reported for the first time worldwide, whereas 2n = 2x = 12 for var. corniculatus, var. japonicus and var. minor are reported for the first time in India. The meiotic course(More)
Cytomorphological studies have been carried out for analysing the cyto-genetic diversity in 14 populations covering 5 species belonging to the genus Saxifraga L. (fam. Saxifragaceae) from Western Himalaya. New intraspecific cytotypes in Saxifraga diversifolia Wall. ex Ser. (n = 8 and n = 16), S. filicaulis Wall. ex Ser. (n = 8) and S. siberica Linn. (n =(More)
The present paper deals with cytological studies on 31 populations covering 17 species belonging to 10 genera of Apiaceae from Western Himalayas. The chromosome numbers in the two species as Chaerophyllum capnoides (n = 11) and Heracleum brunonis (n = 11), along with additional cytotypes for Pimpinella acuminata (n = 9) and Sium latijugum (n = 12) have been(More)
Detailed male meiosis, critical morphological observations and distribution pattern of diploid as well as tetraploid cytotypes of the Western Himalayan species, Bupleurum lanceolatum have been evaluated at present. A diploid (n = 8) cytotype is reported from Kashmir, whereas, both diploid (n = 8) and tetraploid (n = 16) cytotypes are available from two(More)
During the present study, 360 populations of 174 species belonging to 82 genera and 23 families of dicots have been cytologically worked out from different localities of District Kangra (Himachal Pradesh) between 550 and 3,800 m altitude. As many as 10 species including Berberis ceratophylla (2n = 28), Caltha alba (2n = 32), Corydalis meifolia (2n = 16), C.(More)
Cytological studies have been carried out on 12 species of Brassicaceae Burn. on population basis from different geographical areas of Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh in the Western Himalayas. Variable chromosome reports for Barbaraea intermedia (n = 16), Cardamine loxostemonoides (n = 8), Nasturtium officinale (n = 8), Sisymbrium orientale (n = 14) on(More)
Presently Mertensia echioides Benth. (Boraginaceae) collected from Kashmir Himalaya, India, is cytologically analyzed for the first time revealing 2n = 2x = 24 (diploid). Interestingly we found 4.3-6.2% syncytic meiocytes/PMCs with 2n = 4x = 48 (tetraploid) in addition to normal meiocytes (2n = 24) during male meiosis. These comparatively larger PMCs(More)
