Abstract

In the present study, the chromosome number and morphology of four Lilium L. (Liliaceae) taxa distributed in Northeast Anatolia, Turkey. were studied. Karyotype analysis was carried Out On the following taxa: L. carniolicum Bernh subsp. ponticum var. ponticum (C.Koch) Davis & Henderson and Var. artvinense (Miscz) Davis & Henderson. L. monadelphum Bieb var. szovitsianum (Fischer & Ave-Lall.) Elwes and L kesselringianum Miscz. The chromosome number was found 2n = 24 in all taxa. The karyotype analysis showed that the chromosomes of these taxa consist of median, submedian, subterminal and terminal centromere.
