cells is measured. The theory behind this method of screening for changes in ploidy levels is simple. The cell volume of a plant is directly proportional to the amount of DNA present in the cell, so that doubling the amount of DNA, which occurs when

Blueberries (family Ericaceae, species Vaccinium , commonly section Cyanococcus ) are a diverse taxonomic group, and blueberries currently in commercial production represent three major Vaccinium species and two ploidy levels: 4 x V

Cyanococcus . In attempting to cross section Cyanococcus with species of other sections, blueberry breeders typically have used plants with the same chromosome numbers to avoid the ploidy-level barrier in addition to other genetic barriers, which might
