Mitotic chromosome numbers of 13 fern taxa collected in Taiwan were counted, and their reproductive modes were estimated by counting the number of spores per sporangium. Four taxa (Pteris angustipinna, P. longipinna, Thelypteris angustifrons×T. glanduligera and Dryopteris enneaphylla var. enneaphylla) were not studied in previous cyotological studies. New cytotypes were recorded for four others (Coniogramme japonica, Pteris dactylina, Blechnum hancockii and Dryopteris varia), and for three taxa… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Allopolyploid Origin and Distribution Range of Acystopteris taiwaniana (Cystopteridaceae: Polypodiales)
TLDR
In 2008, an unknown plant of Acystopteris was collected in subalpine forests in Gifu Prefecture, the central part of Honshu, Japan, in having a pale green stipe and rachis.
Chromosome numbers of some species of Pteris (Pteridaceae) in Java, Indonesia
TLDR
A study of the cytology of Pteris in Java is being undertaken for the conceptual understanding of the interrelationships between various fern species in the Malesian region and polyploidy in the genus in relation to plant morphological variation across its geographical range is discussed.
A systematic study of Dryopteris subg. Erythrovariae (H. Itô) Fraser-Jenk. (Dryopteridaceae) in Korea
TLDR
The morphological characteristics of the Korean members of Dryopteris subg.
Reticulate evolution in the apogamous Dryopteris varia complex (Dryopteridaceae, subg. Erythrovariae, sect. Variae) and its related sexual species in Japan
TLDR
The results suggest that these apogamous species are formed by hybridizations of species including not only the three diploid sexual species of the D. varia complex but also the two diploids sexual species D. caudipinna and D. chinensis, which do not belong to the complex.
Hybrid Origin of the Apogamous Fern Dryopteris hondoensis (Dryopteridaceae)
TLDR
It is shown that apogamous species of ferns can hybridize with other sexual species to produce apogamously reproducible offspring and that reticulate evolution in subg.
Pteris latipinna sp. nov. (Pteridaceae), a new species segregated from Pteris fauriei
TLDR
It was confirmed that this species is phylogenetically separated from the other East Asian Pteris species, except for a morphologically distinct species P. arisanensis, by means of chloroplast genes, rbcL and matK.
Molecular phylogeny of the fern family Blechnaceae (Polypodiales) with a revised genus‐level treatment
TLDR
This work outlines and explains a plan to resolve the polyphyly of Blechnum by recognizing additional, monophyletic, segregate genera, each corresponding to a highly supported clade across all analyses.
Phylogenetic analyses place the monotypic Dryopolystichum within Lomariopsidaceae
TLDR
The maximum-likelihood and Bayesian-inference phylogenetic analyses unambiguously place Dryopolystichum within Lomariopsidaceae, a position not previously suggested, rendering Lomaropsid Families as one of the most morphologically heterogeneous fern families.
Low-copy nuclear data confirm rampant allopolyploidy in the Cystopteridaceae (Polypodiales)
TLDR
This phylogeny corroborates broad results from plastid data in demonstrating strong support for the monophyly of the family's three genera and of the major groups within Cystopteris (C. montana, the sudetica and bulbifera clades, and the C. fragilis complex).
Monachosorum arakii Tagawa (Dennstaedtiaceae) is a Relict “International” Hybrid: A Reassessment of the Monachosorum Species
TLDR
It is determined that Monachosorum arakii Tagawa is a pentaploid based on chromosome counts, and all of the herbarium specimens examined, including the holotype, had irregularly shaped spores, suggesting that this is a sterile hybrid species.

Cytotaxonomic study of ferns of Yunnan, southwestern China
TLDR
The present evidence indicates that most triploid species examined are agamosporous, as general in filicalean ferns, and also suggests the sexual 32-spored sporogenesis in Hypodematium crenatum andSorolepidium graciale as in Lindsaeaceae.
Cytological observations on some species ofPteris L. from Kumaon (northwest Himalaya)

  • 1989
TLDR
The paper deals with the cytology of 10 taxa of 8 species of the genus Pteris from Kumaon in northwest Himalaya and finds sexual mode of reproduction is observed in 40% taxa whereas 60% are apogamous.
CYTOLOGY OF SOME FERNS FROM THE NILGIRIS, SOUTH INDIA - IV
TLDR
Chromosomal analysis of eleven species of ferns from the Nilgiris, south India has been made and six cytotypes are diploids, four are tetraploid, two are octoploids, one is 16-ploid and one is triploid apogamous.

TLDR
The cytological findings are assembled in relation to the taxonomic system of Copeland (1947) which is discussed in a preliminary way together with the relevant portions of the alternative system of Holttum (19 1947).
CYTOLOGY AND EVOLUTION IN THE FERN GENUS PTERIS L.
Pteris is a large genus of ferns, containing about 280 species according to Copeland (1947) a figure which places it seventh among leptosporangiate ferns in order of size. Although a few of its
Morphological and Cytological Variations of Japanese Dryopteris Varia Group (Dryopteridaceae)
TLDR
Morphological and cytological studies were undertaken to examine the taxonomic entities and their variations in six species and one variety of the Dryopteris varia group and confirmed that each of the agamosporous species consists of diploid and triploid infraspecific cytotypes.
RbcL Phylogeny of Japanese Pteridophyte Flora and Implications on Infrafamilial Systematics
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Japanese pteridophyte flora was performed using chloroplast rbcL sequences of 93% of Japanese taxa and noteworthy or novel results on the infrafamilal taxonomy of the pterodophytes are documented by family.
Extreme Multiple Reticulate Origins of the Pteris cadieri Complex (Pteridaceae)
TLDR
It is proposed that the Pteris cadieri complex originated from different genetic lineages through multiple hybridizations in different geographical areas, leading to its present morphological diversity.
Variation in therbcL sequence ofStegnogramma pozoi subsp.mollissima (Thelypteridaceae) in Japan
TLDR
The intrasubspecific variation of therbcL gene was examined, and three types in the subspecies (Atami-1, Atami-2, and Tateyama types) were found, though the leaf shape in TateyAMA type varies considerably and in some cases overlaps with other types.
