The paper reported the chromosome number, karyotype and chromosome volume of Carpesium cernuum. The normal diploid was 2n = 40, karyotype formula based on Levan's publication was k(2n) = 40 = 24 m + 12 sm + 2 st + 2T. According to the method of S. R. Kuo, the chromosome relative length was 2n = 40 = 8L + 6M2 + 16M1 + 10S, which belong to "2B" type according to the Stebbins' karyotype classification. The AS.K% was 62.35% from Arano's method. The total volume of chromosome groups was 13.76… Expand

Karyotypes of nineteen species of Asteraceae in the Hengduan Mountains and adjacent regions
There is no direct evidence that ploidy level and karyotype asymmetry are associated with the distribution of recorded Asteraceae species from the Hengduan Mountains, which suggests that polyploidy may not play an important role in the evolutionary history of these plants. Expand
