Kariological study of five Arecoideae palmae species
MetadataShow full item record
Kariological data for 5 species of palm subfamily Arecoideae are presented based on somatic methapase chromosomes obtained from seeds germinated on Sphagnum, and using standard methodology for the slides preparation. From the kariogram of Aiphanes. acanthophylla (2n=30),A. caryotaefolia (2n=30), Syagrus coronata (2n=32), S. quinquifaria (2n=32) and Scheelea lauromuelleriana (2n=32) the relative centromere position (short arm x 100/total chromosome length) and the relative length of each chromosome (average chromosome length/total chromosome length) were calculated.
