Variation in the Festuca brachyphylla (Poaceae) complex in Svalbard, elucidated by chromosome numbers and isozymes


, : Variation in the Festuca brachyphylla (Poaceae) complex in Svalbard, elucidated by chromosome numbers and isozymes. Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society 137(2): 107-126

Contrasting with former taxonomic treatments, chromosome numbers and isoenzyme data support the delimitation of the seminiferous representatives of the Festuca brachyphylla complex in Svalbard, Norway into four species: F. baffinensis, F. brachyphylla, F. hyperborea and F. edlundiae. Unique enzyme markers were found for all species. Festuca brachyphylla proved hexaploid, and the others, tetraploid.

However, supercritical fluid (SCF) extraction of the plant by using CO2 showed that a main component of the extract was not...
