2 Abstract: Seed morphs of Calendula officinalis were investigated in order to examine the genetic variability which correlates with seed polymorphism and its impact on collection strategy of gene banks. The basic parameters to get the evidence were obtained from morphological data, karyotype analysis, electrophoretic pattern of seed proteins as well as nucleic acid analysis. Seven seed morphs were observed from every inflorescence as follows: curve, winged, insect leg, balloon rough, balloon… Expand

The Variation of the Different Seeds Traits on F3 Hybrid Combinations of Calendula
TLDR
The information regarding themorphological traits of seeds in hybrid progeny may be useful for compared with the parents and estimate the inheritance of seeds traits at Calendula. Expand
Phenotypic and molecular cytogenetic variability in calendula (Calendula officinalis L.) cultivars and mutant lines obtained via chemical mutagenesis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DMS and DES at low concentrations have great potential in calendula mutation breeding and a high level of karyotype stability in M1 and M2 plants. Expand
Genetic Improvement of Calendula officinal through Mutation Induction using Gamma Irradiation and Chemical Mutagens
Calendula is one of the basic plants of ornamentals. It is used in various purposes as cut flowers and in gardens. They are rich with active compounds such as chlorophyll a and b, phenols, flavonoidExpand
Phenotypic variation and genetic diversity of Calendula officinalis (L.)
TLDR
The present results illustrate the potential of phenotypic variables and RAPD markers to distinguish genetic diversity and Phenotypic variation and are most needed for management in gene banks. Expand
Harvest date as a factor affecting crop yield, oil content and fatty acid composition of the seeds of calendula (Calendula officinalis L.) cultivars
TLDR
Results clearly indicate that seed and oil yield was highest in cultivars with the highest percentage of winged and hooked seeds and the highest number of flower heads, which depends on the morphological features of the examined cultivars, such as the number of Flower heads, percentage of morphological seed types and climatic factors.

Somatic polymorphism and seed dispersal
TLDR
An even more striking polymorphic dispersal mechanism in the biennial Picris echioides L. (Compositae) is reported, which may increase the fitness of individuals in environments that are temporally patchy, at the expense of the intrinsic rate of increase that could be attained by a unique seed type in a uniform environment.

EVOLUTIONARY TRENDS IN THE FRUITING HEAD OF COMPOSITAE
TLDR
By a review of certain biological features peculiar to the fruiting head of Compositae an attempt is made to outline a few discernible evolutionary trends affecting the fruit aggregate as a morphological-biological entity. Expand
Phenotypic Variety in Seed Germination Behavior: The Ontogeny and Evolution of Somatic Polymorphism in Seeds
TLDR
A general model of seed development is described which can account for these five features of within-clutch diversity in germination behavior and the term somatic heterochrony is suggested for the process which involves differential independent rates of "ripening" in the tissues of seeds. Expand
Ecological correlates of RAPD DNA diversity of wild barley, Hordeum spontaneum, in the Fertile Crescent
TLDR
The correlation data indirectly suggest that natural selection appears to be the major determinant of both RAPD and allozyme diversities both being correlated with environmental stress. Expand
Seed dimorphism in relation to germination and growth of Cakile edentula
TLDR
This study suggests that both seed germination and the growth of the subsequent plants depend on seed mass rather than seed morph, and that the effect of seed mass on these variables may be actually achieved indirectly through the influence on plant size. Expand
Achene Dimorphism and Among-Population Variation in Crepis sancta (Asteraceae)
TLDR
By comparing the morphs between populations, pregermination dormancy and plant vigor were found to be different among populations for the central achenes, whereas the characteristics of the peripheral achene remained almost unchanged. Expand
STUDIES ON THE ECOLOGICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF AMPHICARPY IN GYMNARRHENA MICRANTHA (COMPOSITAE)
TLDR
It was concluded that the 2 types of fruit serve 2 distinct functions in the biology of the plant, the aerial fruits are adapted to the function of increasing the distribution of the species within suitable habitats, while the subterranean fruits areadapted to increasing the probability of the survival of thespecies.

KARYOTYPE ANALYSIS IN SOME GENERA OF COMPOSITAE. VIII. FURTHER STUDIES ON THE CHROMOSOMES OF ASTER
TLDR
The karyotypes of 3 Asiatic and 3 American taxa of Aster are reported here for the first time, and there was a marked increase in asymmetry in the American species. Expand
Plant Variation and Evolution
TLDR
This chapter discusses variation, evolution, species and speciation, and conservation: confronting the extinction of species. Expand
Plant Genome Size Estimation by Flow Cytometry: Inter-laboratory Comparison
TLDR
The results obtained in this study demonstrate that flow cytometry with DNA intercalators is a reliable method for estimation of nuclear genome size in plants, and confirmed an urgent need for an agreement on standards. Expand
