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+...
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...
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...
A molecular phylogeny of Salvia euphratica sensu lato (Salvia L., Lamiaceae) and its closely related species with a focus on the section Hymenosphace
Dizkırıcı, Ayten; CELEP, FERHAT; Kansu, Cigdem; KAHRAMAN, AHMET; Doğan, Musa; Kaya, Zeki (2015-12-01)
To investigate the phylogenetic relationships of Salvia euphratica sensu lato and its closely related species with a focus on the section Hymenosphace, we screened five different regions; one nuclear ribosomal DNA region (Internal Transcribed Spacer, ITS) and four chloroplast DNA regions [trnT-trnL intergenic spacer (IGS), trnL intron, trnL-trnF IGS and trnV intron]. Based on 19 sequences of 7 Salvia taxa produced in the study and different number of sequences obtained from GenBank, our results supported la...
A Micromorphological study on the genus thymus lamiaceae in Turkey
Kütükalan, Damla; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2019)
The genus Thymus L.(Lamiaceae) having its center of diversity in the Mediterranean distributed mainly in the Old World includes 45 species in Turkey. It belongs to the monophyletic subfamily Nepetoideae. In this study, epidermal micromorphological properties of 32 species of Thymus were examined by using scanning electron microscopy. Micromorphology of vegetative and floral organs were found to be providing good taxonomic features for understanding phylogeny of the genus.
