Chromosome numbers in the Boronieae (Rutaceae) and their bearing on the evolutionary development of the tribe in the Australian flora
TLDR
A hypothesis of the historical development of the Boronieae in Australia is presented, and a period of generic radiation, with changes in basic number, occurred before the Miocene.
Chromosome numbers and pollen types in the Epacridaceae
TLDR
The origin of the monad pattern of pollen development, and some fundamental changes in chromosome structure in the Styphelieae, permitting a period of chromosomal instab~lity during their evolutionary diversification, must have been still more ancient.
The cytology of Brachycome lineariloba
TLDR
Data from chromosome morphology, patterns of early and late condensing chromatin and heterochromatin and meiotic pairing are presented and show that A2, A3 and A4 differ by loss or suppression of nucleolar organisers.
The cytology of Brachycome lineariloba. 9. Chromosomal heterogeneity in natural populations of cytodeme C (2n = 16)
TLDR
Ten natural populations of B. lineariloba cytodeme C (2n = 16) were analysed cytologically and a considerable number of hybrids or hybrid derivatives were found between cytodemes B and C.
The cytology of Brachycome. I. The subgenus Eubrachycome. a general survey
TLDR
The present taxonomy of the group requires revision, taking into account cytological data, and it is inferred that x = 9 is the primitive base number in the group.
The life history and genetic system of Leucopogon juniperinus
TLDR
Throughout this range, the species shows a high degree of uniformity in morphological characters, and it is apparent that this uniformity has a cytological basis.
The cytology of Brachycome lineariloba
Meiotic behaviour in PMC's and in ESMC's, the development of pollen and embryo sacs, and the chromosome constitution of endosperm in this species (species E) define its unique genetic system. It is

The Cytology of Brachyscome Cass. (Asteraceae: Astereae). II. Hybridisation Between B. goniocarpa (N = 4) and B. dichromosomatica (N = 2)
TLDR
Cytological investigations showed that the total length of mitotic metaphase chromosomes for the B. dichromosomatica haploid set was 1.33 times that of the B goniocarpa set, suggesting that the current placement of the two taxa in different superspecies is not warranted.
