Genome size variation linked with evolution within Chenopodium s. lat.

The significance of the wide interspecific variation in nuclear genome size of angiosperms is still not fully understood. It has been repeatedly suggested, however, that genome size can impose phenotypic constraints on plant development, phenology and ecological performance. We analysed nuclear genome size variation in diploid and polyploid species of Chenopodium s. lat. within a phylogenetic framework using flow cytometry of majority of Eurasian representatives of the genus.
