PEDROSA, Andrea et al. Cytogenetics of Angiosperms collected in the State of Pernambuco: V. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 1999, vol.13, n.1, pp.49-60. ISSN 0102-3306.

Thirty three native and introduced species from 20 families of angiosperms collected in the State of Pernambuco were analysed. The karyotype description of the majority of the species was based on chromosome number and morphology, condensation pattern of prophase chromosomes as well as interphase nuclear structure. In five species (Cereus jamacaru, 2n=22; Clitoria fairchildiana, 2n=22; Eugenia luschnathiana, 2n=22; Licania tomentosa, 2n=22; and Spondias tuberosa, n=16) the chromosome number is reported here for the first time. In the case of Licania tomentosa, this is also the first report for the genus. Among the other 28 species, three (Cecropia cf. palmata, 2n=26; Crinum erubescens, 2n=70; and Schinus terebentifolius, 2n=28) showed chromosome numbers different from what has previously been reported.

Keywords : chromosome number; interphase nucleus; angiosperms.
