    • Abstract

       

      Analysis of flavonoid patterns in the diploid, triploid and tetraploid forms ofCynodon dactylon revealed them to be cytotype-specific. The triploid forms showed a mixture of spots from the diploid and the tetraploid and in addition exhibited some novel spots. Further, these patterns indicated allopolyploid nature of the tetraploids. The leaves of triploid forms contained almost double the quantity of ascorbic acid present in the diploid and tetraploid forms.
