    • Abstract


      Somatic and meiotic chromosome numbers in 13 species ofIschaemum and two species ofSehima have been reported. Most of these numbers either constitute new reports or a revision of the earlier reports. Basic chromosome number seemed to be 10 inIschaemum andSehima with incidence of polyploidy ranging from diploid to hexaploid forms inIschaemum and diploid to tetraploid forms inSehima.
