The taxa of the genus Salvia L. (Lamiaceae) used in this study were collected from their natural habitats in Turkey. In this paper, the number, size and morphology of somatic chromosomes of 22 Turkish taxa of Salvia, namely S. bracteata Banks & Sol., S. fruticosa Mill., S. huberi Hedge, S. hydrangea DC. ex Benth., S. nemorosa L. and S. pomifera L. (2n=14), S. adenocaulon P.H. Davis and S. aucheri Benth. subsp. canescens Boiss. & Heldr., (2n=18), S. argentea L., S. frigida Boiss., S. palestina Benth., S. poculata Nabelek and S. verticillata L. subsp. verticillata (2n=20), S. atropatana Bunge, S. cassia Sam. ex. Rech. f., S. chrysophylla Stapf, S. cyanescens Boiss. & Balansa, S. indica L. and S. limbata C.A.Mey. (2n=22), S. multicaulis Vahl (2n=28), S. virgata Jacq. (2n=32) and S. verbenaca L. (2n=60) were investigated. Somatic chromosome numbers ranged from 2n = 14 to 2n=60. The present results were compared with the previous cytological ones.


Karyomorphological studies in seven taxa of the genus Salvia (Lamiaceae) in Turkey
MARTİN, ESRA; Altinordu, Fahim; Celep, Ferhat; KAHRAMAN, AHMET; Doğan, Musa (2015-03-01)
In this study, the karyotypes of mitotic chromosomes were determined of seven taxa of Salvia (Lamiaceae) collected from their natural habitats in Turkey: S. viridis (2n = 16), S. candidissima subsp. occidentalis (2n = 20), S. sclarea, S. ceratophylla, S. chionantha (2n = 22), S. viscosa and S. verticillata subsp. amasiaca (2n = 32). The karyotype formulae were 5m+3sm in S. viridis, 2M+5m+3sm in S. candidissima subsp. occidentalis, 1M+10m in S. sclarea, 8m+3sm in S. ceratophylla, 7m+4sm in S. chionantha, 9m+...
Morphology, anatomy and systematics of the genus Salvia l. (Lamiaceae) in East and Southeast Anatolia, Turkey
Kahraman, Ahmet; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2011)
This study aims to revise the genus Salvia L. in East and Southeast Anatolia in Turkey on the basis of macromorphological, anatomical, palynological, mericarp micro-morphological, ecological and numerical analysis. Towards achieving this goal, about 2500 specimens of Salvia were collected and examined during extensive field studies between July 2005 and June 2009. The materials collected by other researchers either from Turkey or abroad were also investigated. The results of the taxonomic revision show that...
A Numerical taxonomic study on the genus salvia l. (lamiaceae) in Turkey
Tiambeng, Deniz; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2015)
Widely used a medicinal plant, Salvia L. is the largest genus in the family Lamiaceae, with over 1700 species found in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Within this genus, almost 100 species are recognized in Turkey. To date, however, no comprehensive infrageneric treatment of Salvia in Turkey exists. The objective of this study was to propose a more natural infrageneric classification of the genus Salvia in Turkey by using the numerical taxonomic approach developed by Sneath and Sokal in 1973. In this...
Anatomy, trichome morphology and palynology of Salvia chrysophylla Stapf (Lamiaceae)
Kahraman, A.; Celep, F.; Doğan, Musa (Elsevier BV, 2010-4)
The anatomy, palynology, morphology and distribution of the trichomes on the aerial parts of Salvia chrysophylla Stapf, an endemic species in Turkey, were studied in order to understand the usefulness of these characteristics for systematic purposes. Some anatomical characters such as (1-)2-24-rowed pith rays in roots, dorsiventral leaves, obviously larger upper epidermal cells, and two to three large vascular bundles in the center and two to four small subsidiary bundles in the wings of petiole provide inf...
A taxonomic revision of Salvia euphratica sensu lato and its closely related species (sect. Hymenosphace, Lamiaceae) using multivariate analysis
Kahraman, Ahmet; CELEP, FERHAT; Doğan, Musa; Bagherpour, Safi (2010-01-01)
As an initial part of a revisional study based on the genus Salvia L. (Lamiaceae), extensive field studies, herbarium and literature surveys, and multivariate analysis have been conducted on the basis of the Salvia euphratica sensu lato (S. cerino-pruinosa, S. euphratica, S. leiocalycina, and S. pseudeuphratica) and its closely related species (S. kronenburgii and S. sericeo-tomentosa) in order to understand their taxonomic status. For the multivariate analysis, 35 OTUs (Operational Taxonomic Units) represe...
