Abstract

Representative specimens of various species of the genera  Andropogon L.,  Cymbopogon Spreng.,  Elionurus Kunth ex Willd.,  Hyparrhenia Foum. and  Hyperthelia Clayton were cytogenetically studied. All specimens had a secondary basic chromosome number of ten. Polyploidy, either as alloploidy or segmental alloploidy. was frequent. The taxa studied represent mature polyploid complexes.
