Yildiz, Hatice Kubra
Binzat, Okan Kaan
This study examined the detailed chromosome measurements and karyotype asymmetries of seven taxa in the genus Vicia. The taxa are V. articulata, V. cassubica, V. villosa subsp. villosa in sect. Cracca, V. noeana var. noeana, V. sativa subsp. sativa, V. peregrina in sect. Vicia and V. caesarea in sect. Ervum. V. cassubica, V. noeana var. noeana, V. sativa subsp. sativa, V. caesarea have 2n = 12 chromosomes. V. articulata, V. villosa subsp. villosa, V. peregrina have 2n = 14 chromosomes in somatic cells. Total chromosome lengths range between 2.93-4.99 mu m in V. articulata, 2.09-4.73 mu m in V. cassubica, 1.86-3.36 mu m in V. villosa subsp. villosa, 4.23-6.05 mu m in V. noeana var. noeana, 2.07-3.72 mu m in V. sativa subsp. sativa, 4.32-7.21 mu m in V. peregrina and 2.39-5.78 mu m in V. caesarea. The detailed chromosome measurements, relative lengths, centromeric indexes and karyotype asymmetries are also given. V. articulata is the most symmetrical karyotype, while V. villosa subsp. villosa is the most asymmetrical karyotype in intrachromosomal asymmetry including parameters of M-CA, AsK, TF, Syi, A1, and A. However, the asymmetrical karyotypes are different in interchromosomal asymmetries. While V. noeana var. noeana is the most symmetrical karyotype in CVCL, Rec, and A2. V. caesarea is the most asymmetrical karyotype in only CVCL and A2. Unlike all parameters, V. cassubica is the most asymmetrical karyotype in Rec value. The scatter diagrams are given between M-CA-CVCL and Syi-Rec.

MARTİN, ESRA; Cetin, Ozlem; Kahraman, Ahmet; Celep, Ferhat; Doğan, Musa (2011-07-01)
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. poc...
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+...

The phylogenetic relationships of Drosanthe section of Hypericum genus (Hypericaceae) were analyzed by using non-coding chloroplast DNA region (trnL 3'-trnF) for 58 individuals. The section is represented by 23 taxa and nine of which are endemic to Turkey. The chloroplast phylogeny suggested that the members of this section belonged to a polyphyletic group, which imply at least two independent origins. The individuals of this section clearly formed two main clades. One clade included all members of this sec...
Some morphological characteristics and neonatal weights of reintroduced gazelle (Gazella subgutturosa) in Turkey
GÜRLER, ŞÜKRÜ; BOZKAYA, FARUK; Ozut, Deniz; Durmus, Mustafa (2015-01-01)
The aim of this study was to determine birth weights, body measurements, and phenotypic correlations in order to characterize the gazelle population raised in Sanliurfa Province, Turkey. For this purpose, body measurements of 93 adult gazelles (54 female, 39 male) and 41 young gazelles (17 female, 24 male) were carried out, and correlations between the measurements were calculated. Additionally, birth weights of 47 newborn gazelle calves (22 female, 25 male) were determined. Mean body weights of adult and y...
Numerical taxonomy of the Genus Salvia (Sage) in East and Southeast Anatolia
Kahraman, Ahmet; Doğan, Musa; Arı, Nurettin (2017-12-08)
This study aims to carry out multivariate statistical analyseson 59 taxa of the genus SalviaL. (sage) naturally found in East and Southeast Anatolia in Turkey based on macromorphological, anatomical, palynological and mericarp micromorphological characteristics, to construct an infrageneric grouping in the genus and tounderstandthephylogeneticrelationships between taxa.For the multivariate correspondence analyses, OTUs (Operational Taxonomic Units) representing different populations of the Salvi...
