Structural, biochemical and geographical relations in Australian C4 grasses (Poaceae)

Prendergast, H. D. V

Description

I have studied aspects of the biology of Australian grasses (Poaceae) in relation to photosynthetic pathway. In a cytological investigation of interspecific relationships in the photosynthetically variable tribe Neurachneae (subfamily Panicoideae), the chromosomes of all species (C₃, C₃-C₄ , C₄) were found to be small (x= 2 µm) and either metacentric or submetacentric. The base number (x= 9) is typical for panicoid grasses; tetraploidy is the most common of the three ploidy levels (2x,...[Show more]
