Previous studies of chromosome relationships of Grindelia species recognized three basic genomes designated Oxylepis, Hallii, and Havardii. Differences are based on different end arrangements of the chromosomes resulting from reciprocal translocations. This report will review and give additional information about the genomes and interrelationships of 17 species. All of the species are diploids (2n = 12) and show six bivalents at meiosis. Species in this study that have the Oxylepis genome are G… 
Molecular cytogenetic studies of the “Xanthocephalum group” (Asteraceae)
TLDR
North American members of the “Xanthocephalum group” were studied by classical and molecular cytogenetics and could have originated recently by autopolyploidy, resulting in higher heterochromatin amounts not associated with NORs.
Karyotypes, heterochromatin distribution and rDNA patterns in South American Grindelia (Asteraceae)
TLDR
These groups do not show any morphological affinities and their phylogenetic relationships are not clearly resolved, suggesting that these groups have recently diverged.
Comparative karyotype analysis in Haplopappus Cass. and Grindelia Willd. (Asteraceae) by double FISH with rRNA specific genes
TLDR
The assumption that the evolution of New World members of Grindelia and Haplopappus has not been accompanied by large karyotypic changes, but small chromosomal rearrangements have undoubtedly occurred is supported.

TLDR
Although phylogenetic analysis shows that CA-FP Grindelia form a clade, relationships within the clade remain unresolved due to a lack of sequence divergence, an intermediate approach is chosen, recognizing what I consider to be the most morphological and ecologically distinctive ecotypes or clusters of ecotypes as taxa.
Revision of the North American Species of Grindelia (Asteraceae)1
TLDR
A revision of North American species of the genus Grindelia Willd (Asteraceae) was carried out, and two forms are recognized, and a key is given for D. spathulata Lag.
Cytogenetic studies in Sorghum bicolor (L). Moench.
Meiotic observations in this study indicate that the basic chromosome number in Sorghum bicolor is x=5 and that this species is a segmental allotetraploid. The wild and cultivated members of this
Intraspecific Functional Trait Diversity in Big Sagebrush-Associated Species and Implications for Ecological Restoration
TLDR
Examining natural history traits and variability in seven species commonly used as components in restoration seed mixtures for big sagebrush habitat showed that seed mass, germination, and timing of germination vary significantly among species and populations of the same species.

CHROMOSOME ANALYSIS OF HYBRIDS BETWEEN 4N GRINDELIA CAMPORUM AND 2N G. GRANDIFLORA (COMPOSITAE)
TLDR
Morphology and meiosis are described in four progeny plants resulting from tetraploid Grindelia camporum Greene from California and Coahuila, Mexico, which are separated cytologically by polyploidy and by two distinct chromosomal interchanges that explain the configurations observed in the triploid hybrid.
INTERCHANGE HETEROZYGOSITY IN DIPLOID INTERSPECIFIC HYBRIDS IN GRINDELIA (COMPOSITAE)
TLDR
Hypothetical chromosome end arrangements and names for the respective genomes, based on G. oxylepis as a standard, are presented to corroborate a previously published phylogenetic scheme of the genus based on morphological, ecological, and distributional studies.
CHROMOSOME CHARACTERISTICS OF TEXAS SPECIES OF GRINDELIA (COMPOSITAE) AND SOME INTERSPECIFIC HYBRIDS
TLDR
It is concluded that the species of Grindelia from Texas possess this genome, previously designated the Havardii genome, and their relationships to other species of the genus are closely related.
A CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF CERTAIN POLYPLOIDS IN GRINDELIA (COMPOSITAE)
TLDR
Close genetic relationships between the diploids and between the tetraploids are indicated, and geographical, ecological, and seasonal barriers to gene exchange exist, and attempts to obtain hybrids between diploid and tetraPloid interspecific hybrids were successful in a few cases.

TLDR
It was concluded that Grindelia tetraploids were autopolyploids that had undergone some diploidization (Dunford, 1964) and that G. aphanactis is more closely related toG.
Studies in Grindelia. III
TLDR
When the plants flowered and matured fruit during the summer of 1807, Willdenow observed that they differed from Inula, under which Persoon2 had identified them, and from Aster, so he described from them a new genus, Grindelia, in honor of Professor Grindel of Dorpat, and named the particular plant Grindelia inuloides.
