Abstract

In the study, some Lathyrus L. taxa naturally growing in the northeastern Anatolia were investigated cytotaxonomically. Chromosome numbers and karyotypes of eight taxa were investigated by using karyological and numeric taxonomical techniques. The chromosome numbers of all these diploid taxa found as 2n = 14. The results were considered in conjunction with the karyological literature data.
