Seed Morphology of Some Barbarea (Brassicaceae) Taxa
Bazı Barbarea (Brassicaceae) Taksonlarının Tohum Morfolojisi

Emrah ŞİRİN [1] , Kuddisi ERTUĞRUL [2]


The seed macro- and micromorphologies of four taxa (Barbarea auriculata Hausskn. ex Bornm. var. auriculata, Barbarea trichopoda Hausskn. ex Bornm., Barbarea verna (Mill.) Asch. and Barbarea vulgaris R. Br. subsp. vulgaris) belonging to Barbarea R. Br. were investigated with scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Significance of seed features as taxonomic characters including seed color, shape, winged, measures, seed coat pattern were determined. Two coat patterns were observed; irregularly-reticulate and tuberculate-reticulate, and three shapes were distinguished; broadly oblong, oblong and broadly elliptic. The results showed that the morphological characteristics of seed could be contribute as criteria to distinguish taxa. This is the first SEM study about seed surface of any Barbarea taxa.
Barbarea cinsine ait olan dört taksonun (Barbarea auriculata var. auriculata, Barbarea trichopoda, Barbarea verna ve Barbarea vulgaris subsp. vulgaris) tohum morfolojileri, taramalı electron mikroskobu (SEM) ile incelendi. Bunların taksonomik karakter olarak önemleri belirlendi. Makro- ve mikromorfolojik karakter olarak tohum rengi, şekli, ölçüsü ve yüzey modeli incelendi. Düzensiz-retikulat ve tüberküllü-retikulat olarak iki tohum yüzeyi modeli ve geniş oblong, oblong ve geniş eliptik olarak üç tohum şekli tespit edildi. Sonuçlar Barbarea cinsinde tohumların morfolojik karakterlerinin taksonların ayrımına katkı sağlayabileceğini göstermiştir.
