Molecular and cytogenetic characterization of a collection of bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flügge) native to Uruguay

Abstract

Paspalum notatum is a subtropical grass present throughout America, and one of the main constituents of the natural grasslands in Uruguay. An apomictic autotetraploid (2n = 4x = 40) is the most frequent cytotype. The occurrence of sexual diploids (2n = 2x = 20) has also been reported as well as the occasional presence of apomictic triploids and pentaploids… (More)
