Abstract


Karyotype analysis of two Anchonium DC. taxa, collected from different localities in Turkey, were determined. These taxa include
Anchonium elichrysifolium (DC.) Boiss. subsp. canescens (Hausskn ex Bornm.) Cullen et Coode and A. elichrysifolium (DC.) Boiss. subsp. elichrysifolium. The diploid chromosome numbers of investigated Anchonium data were counted as 2n = 14. The basic chromosome number of the genus was x = 7. Karyotypes of the taxa are introduced to the scientific community for the first time and they were obtained through an Image Analysis System. The research has made contribution to the revision of the genus Anchonium in Turkey.
