Potentilla anglica Laich. (= P. procumbens Sibth.) is an octoploid species (2n = 56) which is thought to have arisen as the allopolyploid between two tetraploids, P. erecta (L.) Räusch. (2n = 28) and P. reptans L. (2n = 28). Over a century ago Grenier (1865) recognised the intermediate morphology of P. anglica and identified it as the hybrid between P. erecta and P. reptans. However, Wolf (1901) pointed out that it is fertile and should be given specific status. The theory of allopolyploidy was… 

CYTOGENETIC STUDIES IN THE GENUS POTENTILLA L.

No definite correlation was found between the morphological similarity of species and their crossing ability, and meiotic studies on the hybrids indicated some chromosomal homologies between the genomes of P. grandiflora and P. crantzii, but not between P. nepalensis andP.

HYBRIDS BETWEEN DUTCH TORMENTILLAE (POTENTILLA, ROSACEAE)

SUMMARY Hybridization in Dutch populations of Potentilla anglica, P. erecta and P. reptans was investigated. Chromosome counts were carried out for 342 plants collected from 40 populations. The

Variation of Potentilla sect. Potentilla (Rosaceae) in Estonia and neighbouring countries

It is reasonable to treat P. ¥ italica, which clearly forms clusters of its own, on the same level as P. anglica, i.e., to recognize it as a morphologically stable nothospecies.

Morphological and cytological studies on a hexaploid clone of Potentilla anserina L.

The study of the morphological characters and meiotic behaviour of a single clone of hexaploid Potentilla anserina found that it could have an autoallopolyploid origin, arising possibly from the fusion of reduced and non­ reduced tetraploid gametes.

125 A study was made of the morphological characters and meiotic behaviour of a single clone of hexaploid Potentilla anserina (2n = 6x = 42). Observations on leaf, epicalyx, and pollen characters

Plasticity of internodes and petioles in prostrate and erect Potentilla species

1. In phylogenetically related species, internodes of erect and stoloniferous plants are homologous structures, whereas petioles of prostrate plants and internodes of erect plants are structurally

GRAVIRESPONDING SITES IN SHOOTS OF NORMAL AND 'LAZY' RICE SEEDLINGS

Shoots of lazy-Kamenoo lose graviresponsiveness in an organ-dependent fashion after being exposed to agravitropic growth of a‘lazy’line.

The use of mutants to probe models of gravitropism.

It has been widely believed for more than 70 years that auxin plays a central role in the induction of differential growth which causes gravitropic curvature, but consensus is now centred on ill-defined models which have a low predictive value, hence are harder to challenge experimentally.

Natural Hybridization as an Evolutionary Process

Studies of natural hybridization have generally addressed evolutionary questions using one of the three following frameworks: (i) taxonomy or systematics (57, 59, 73, 79, 111, 172); (ii) mechanisms

Von den 10 Millionen Arten von Organismen, die auf der Erde existieren, sind bis jetzt ungefahr 15 % von Biologen beschrieben worden, doch fur 99 % von diesen sind kaum mehr als einige morphologische

NATURAL AND EXPERIMENTAL HYBRIDIZATION IN POTENTILLA

Results of morphological and cytological studies and experimental crosses made to clarify the origins and taxonomy of the hybrids, and to investigate the possibility of introgression are presented.

Frequency of Quadrivalents in Autotetraploid Plants

The cause of low quadrivalent formation has been related to the paucity of ‘pairing blocks’, the position of the centromeres in chromosomes, and chiasma interference across the centromere1.

The aceto-carmine method for fruit material.

It is not easy to make good aceto-carmine preparations of plants with small chromosomes at meiosis because the cytoplasm readily takes up the stain and this prevents a sharp differentiation. The
