Comparative cytological study of Solanum aethiopicum Gilo group, Solanum aethiopicum Shum group and Solanum anguivi
Comparative cytological studies carried out on Gilo and Shum cultivar groups of Solanum aethiopicum and their ancestor-Solanum anguivi, in order to elucidate the evolutionary relationships between them suggested that the Gilo cultivar group might have evolved from the Shum cultivating group through hybridization and selection, while the S. anguIVi was already stabilized as their ancestor.

Karyotype and genomic analysis helped in distinguishing purple coloured skin fruit type cv. Expand
An Outlook in Hybrid Eggplant Breeding
Eggplant is a hardy annual herbaceous plant that is attacked by many insect pests and diseases and some varieties tolerant/resistant to different biotic and abiotic stresses are developed. Expand
Cytological Studies of Solanum jasminoides Paxt. var. grandiflorum Hort
The irregularities in meiosis found in the taxon are attributed to the two interchanges and consequent changes in the location of controlling sequence which effects related genes controlling meiotic events in a co-ordinate fashion. Expand
Chromosome studies in a diploid potato (Solanum mochicense Ochoa)
The meiotic irregularities and partial sterility indicate that the diploid S. mochicense Ochoa is presumably of hybrid origin and probably responsible for failure of pairing among pairable chromosomes. Expand

GENETICAL STUDIES IN SOME WEST AFRICAN SOLANUM MELONGENA L.
Heterosis for leaf index was found in the intervarietal hybrid, Solanum melongena L.var.Giwa-2 × var.Giwa-1. The indices of the hybrids exceeded significantly those of the parents. Inheritance of p...
Gytological Studies in West African Eggplant
The haploid number of chromosomes in two West African S. melongena vars., Giwa-1 and Giwa-2, was found to be 12. Chromosome aberrations were observed in pollen mother cells, generally in form of… Expand
Cytogenetic Studies in Solanum Melongena L.
Investigations of the morphology of the somatic chromosomes in Solanum, melongena L., varieties purple long, white bunchy, white round, purple oval, green oval, Ram Nagar giant show 24 chromosomes with median and submedian primary constrictions, it has been shown that intermediary number are the result of fusion to give rise to two nuc...

The Cytology of Lachenalia
Ch Chromosome morphology indicates that the higher basic numbers have not arisen by fragmentation of chromosomes, and may be derived from the lower, as secondarily balanced numbers. Expand
Polyploidy in Solanum Melongena Linn
The ehromosomes of diploid and triploid Solanum Melongena were studied in somatic and meiotic divisions and found to have earlier and more complete terminalisation than the Tonger ones. Expand
The Chromosome Constitution of the Pomoideae
It was concluded that in the cultivated apples the set of 34 chromosome in the diploid belong to seven types, three of which are represented six times and four them are represented four times, so the original ancestor of the apple would have had a basic number of 7, and the derived series of polyploid with chromosome numbers 34, 51 and 68 are, therefore, secondary polyploids.
