Abstract

Karyotype, analysis of four Lilium L. (Liliaceae) species viz., L. candidum L., L. martagon L., L. ciliatum P.H. Davis and L. carniolicum subsp. ponticum. (C.Koch) Davis & Henderson distributed in North East Anatolia, Turkey, was carried out. The chromosome number was found to be 2n = 24 in all taxa. The karyotype analysis showed that the karyotypes of these taxa consist of median, submedian, subterminal and terminal chromosomes.
