Abstract

The cytology of wild hybrids of Dryopteris from Pico, Azores has been examined. This has confirmed the parentage of the hybrids, and provided evidence to support the view that the tetraploid species D. crispifolia has evolved in the Azores from two diploid species, D. aemula and D. azorica, by hybridization and polyploidy.
