  • Chromosome numbers are reported for 69 species, belonging to 11 genera of the Boronieae. In comparison with the other divisions of the Rutaceae, chromosome numbers are remarkably variable, and base numbers range from 7 to 19. Seven genera and 10 species belonging to other tribes and subfamilies of the Rutaceae are also reported. In common with the Aurantoideae, Xanthoxyleae, and Ruteae, the primitive number in the Boronieae is almost certainly 9. Chromosomal evolution has involved both… CONTINUE READING
