    • Abstract

       

      Chromosomal analysis of 33 species of Labiatae from South India have indicated that 23·53% are polyploids. Several taxa are investigated for the first time. Analysis of results in totality for the region indicates that shrubby and perennial species have higher incidence of polyploidy. Polybasic nature of the family as well as the investigated taxa is quite apparent and this indicates the role of eu- and aneuploidy in evolution of various taxa in the family.
