Abstract

Chromosome numbers are reported for 19 species in eight families of flowering plants of Madagascar. Included are first reports for 14 species. First counts for the genera Kaliphora (n = 16) and Haronga (n = 10) also are presented. A new low number (n = 7) is reported for the genus Vernonia, and the possible allopolyploid origin of New World taxa of the genus based on x = 17 is discussed.
