The genus Arachis has 69 species, the majority native to Brazil. Arachis spp. seedling root tips have been used to obtain dividing cells for cytological preparations. Several wild species produce small amounts of seeds and consequently few root meristems, making the cytogenetic characterization very difficult. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the rooting capacity of several wild species of Arachis using the detached leaves technique for obtaining roots from petioles. One hundred and… CONTINUE READING
