Karyotype Analysis of Some Legume Species (Vicia noeana Boiss. and Lathyrus sativus L.) Collected From Native Vegetation

Yasar Karadag and Ugur Buyukburc

Abstract:
In this study, morphology of chromosomes of some legume species (Vicia noeana Boiss., Lathyrus sativus L.) collected from the native vegetation in central province of Tokat in Turkey was determined by karyotype and idiogram analysis. The cytological studies showed that the chromosome numbers of Vicia noeana Boiss. and Lathyrus sativus L. were 2n= 12 and 2n= 14, respectively. It was determined that all of the chromosomes of Vicia noeana Boiss. were submedian. Of the 14 chromosomes present in Lathyrus sativus L. karyotype, 4 were submedian and 10 were median. In addition to this, chromosome length, arm ratio and relative chromosome length were between 5.75-7.77 Fm, 2.43-2.96 and 7.21-9.72 for Vicia noeana Boiss. and between 4.75-6.36 Fm, 1.31-1.82 and 6.16-8.26 for Lathyrus sativus L., respectively.
