Karyological Study on Bellevalia and Muscari (Liliaceae) Species of Iran

Azarnoosh Jafari, Ali Asghar Maassoumi and Mohammad Farsi

Abstract:
An investigation of karyotype and chromosome numbers was carried out in different populations of Bellevalia Lapeyr. and Muscari Mill. species from Iran. In this research, six species of Bellevalia and six species of Muscari were studied. Different levels of ploidy were found in them. In Bellevalia with x = 4, levels of ploidy were diploid, autopentaploid and hexaploid and in Muscari with x = 9, it was diploid, autotriploid, tetraploid and autopentaploid. In the present research, for first time, the karyotype of B. olivieri was prepared and a population of B. longistyla with autopenploid was observed. The variation of B chromosome number in Bellevalia was considerable.
