Size of equivalent cells has traditionally been assumed to be constant within species and variable between species. Systematists have commonly measured cells with constant form, such as spores and stomates, as a means of distinguishing species and hybrids in polyploid complexes, since the best known factor determining cell size is ploidy level (Stebbins, 1950). Preliminary hypotheses about polyploid evolution can be generated directly from herbarium specimens based on spore and stomate… CONTINUE READING
