An intensive study of the cytology and sexual behaviour of the classical Spartina x townsendii agg. and their putative parents in southern England reveals a more complex chromosomal situation than had previously been reported, including aneusomaty in Southampton S. alterniflora populations and in S. x townsendii agg. Chromosome numbers are 2n= 60 and 2n= 62 for S. maritima and S. alterniflora respectively and 2n= 62 and 2n= 120, 122 and 124 (chromosome races) for S. x townsendii F1 and… CONTINUE READING
