help - ohio state viola research
Hello viola peoples!
I'm a new graduate student at The Oho State University in Columbus (Ohio, USA) and am developing a topic for my research thesis. Ornimental plant breeding is my line of work, and I'm quite proficient in dabbing hemerocallis (my true love), hosta, and am expanding my tastes :)
Anyway, I am interested in examining DNA fingerprints of (Ohio) naive species, in order to try and connect them to common ancestors. I am having a heck of a time finding in formation on chromosome counts of all the species I have (not all natives):
cornuta 'Black Magic'
Any chance anyone here can help me out -either digits or maybe a reference or referral? I have checked some peer-reviewed literature, and most recently the "Chromosome Atlas of Flowering Plants" by Darlington and Wylie.
