Title: Karyological studies in Chilean species of Bomarea and Leontochir (Alstroemeriaceae)
Handle URI: https://hdl.handle.net/10925/744
Abstract: Species from two genera belonging to the Alstroemeriaceae, Bomarea and Leontochir, were cytogenetically studied and compared to determine their detailed karyotypic composition. Bomarea is a polytypic genus represented by 100 species, with a distribution range from Mexico and Antilles (24°N) to Argentina (29°S) and Chile (17-40°S). In contrast Leontochir is a monotypic genus, endemic to the coastal area of the Atacama Desert in Chile (28°S). Bomarea salsilla, B. involucrosa, and Leontochir ovallei have a karyotype 2n = 18 with similar chromosome morphology. These data confirm the close relationship between both genera, suggested by earlier studies.
