Fuirena Rottb. is a small genus in the family Cyperaceae comprised of 25 species all over the world. It is represented in India by six species, three of which viz., F. uncinata Kunth, F. ciliaris (L.) Roxb. and F. umbellata Rottb. occur in Eastern India. During the present survey of various members of the family from the state of Orissa, all three species have been collected from Bhubaneswar. The fact that no report of the chromosomes of Fuirena has been available to date aroused interest in…

A Synopsis of Chromosome Number Variation in the Cyperaceae

Given the distributions of counts within genera there is evidence for both agmatoploid and polyploid chromosome number changes.

Cytological Studies on Indian Cyperaceae:II. Tribe Cypereae

The present investigation was under taken on the Indian representatives of the tribe Cypereae available under different ecological habitats, as a part of a comprehensive programme to collect and study the members of the family Cyperaceae distributed in different localities of India, with a view to elucidate their interrelationships and the lines of evolution.

Cytological Studies in Indian Cyperaceae

The genus Fimbristylis has been found to represent a very primitive level of evolution as compared to the genus Eleocharis, and possibly the evolution from diffuse to localised centromere has been achieved in a short step.


The species Koenigia islandica L. may be assumed to be the most hardy of all annuals, since it occurs at higher altitudes and latitudes than any other therophyte. Its area of distribution, restricted


Karyotypic analysis of the chromosome complements of the section Capillares revealed that in the basic diploid set of 2n = 18 chromosomes four units are long, 10 are medium and abouthalf the length of the long ones, while four are small and about half the lengthof the medium ones.

Cytological Studies in Cyperaceae with Special Reference to its Taxonomy II

Chromosome number of 45 species belonging to 12 different genera of Cyperaceae were determined through meiotic and pollen mitotic analyses and the taxonomic problems in different groups of species in the family have been discussed.
