Changes in cellular parameters that are brought about by variations in genome size are referred to as nucleotypic effects ( Bennett, 1972 ; Rayburn, 1993a ). Nucleotypic effects have been observed in various plant species ( Bennett, 1976 ; Chung

traits of early angiosperms ( Morris et al., 2007 ; Soltis et al., 2009 ). Chromosome numbers and nuclear genome sizes vary widely among angiosperms. The original base chromosome number of the angiosperm linage was most likely somewhere between x = 6

additional trees with known chromosome numbers will give us a firmer understanding of variation in genome size. In addition, a broad survey of nuclear DNA content in Ulmus and related genera using flow cytometry could provide more information on the
