Turnera ulmifolia L. is a polymorphic complex of diploid, tetraploid and hexaploid varieties. Diploids and tetraploids are distylous and hexaploids homostylous. A controlled crossing programme demonstrated that in diploids distyly is controlled by a single locus with two alleles. Long-styled plants are ss and short-styled plants can be either Ss or SS. In tetraploids a similar pattern occurs with short-styled plants usually Ssss and long-styled plants ssss. Tetrasomic inheritance was… CONTINUE READING
