CYTOGENETICAL EVOLUTION OF CONIFERS

Published on

have selected cytogenetical evolution of conifers as the topic for my
lecture for two reasons. First, the conifers represent a compact group of plants
that
have had a long evolutionary history, having originated sometime during
the Lower Carboniferous about 325 million years back and during this long span
of their
existence they have had ample opportunities of full expression of their
evolutionary potentialities; and secondly,
because conifers are of great importance to man from the forestry point of view and any exposition on their cytogenetical make up may help us in understanding the ways and means that could
be usefully employed for
breeding better varieties of trees.
