On the Taxonomy of the Members of ‘Saccharum Complex’

  title={On the Taxonomy of the Members of ‘Saccharum Complex’},
  author={V. Alfonse Amalraj and Nithya Balasundaram},
  journal={Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution},
The difficulty and problems encountered in the study of cultivated plants, in general and sugarcane, in particular has been indicated. In order to understand these problems, a brief review on the taxonomy of Saccharum and closely related taxa, namely, Erianthus, Sclerostachya, Narenga and Miscanthus (generally known as ‘Saccharum complex’) has been given. A short account on the important morphological features that are specific to sugarcane has also been stated as classification is commonly… CONTINUE READING
