of genome size as it relates to legume systematics and taxonomy. Most aspects of legume biology, from ploidy number to floral diversity, can be further examined through the evolutionary relationships that exist among leguminous taxa ( Young et al

green. Our hypothesis was that a difference in ploidy level among cultivars is related to the variation in winter color and that cultivars that remain greener during winter were tetraploids. The current study was conducted to determine the ploidy level

of ploidy is important for plant breeders, as it can influence crossability, fertility of progeny, segregation of traits, and gene expression. There is limited information on the cytogenetics of aucuba. Some species, including A. chinensis

have focused most attention on L. camara. Patermann (1938) was the first to report a chromosome number for the Lantana genus, identifying L. trifolia as 2 n = 48. Since then, a range of ploidy levels have been identified in L. camara , from 2
