Somatic chromosome number, detailed karyotype and genome size analysis were made to assess genetic diversity in ten drought resistant cultivars of Indian Taro (Colocasia esculenta var antiquorom Schott.). Karyotype analysis revealed genotype specific chromosomal characteristics and structural alterations in chromosomes of the genome, with variations of ploidy from 2n = 2 × = 28 (cv. Mothan, cv. Muktakeshi, cv. Sree Kiran, cv. Sree Pallavi, cv. Sunajhili) to 3n = 3 × = 42 (cv. Banky, cv. DP-25… CONTINUE READING
