Cite article:- Bandyopadhyay Baisakhi, S.C.Santra (2024). MORPHOLOGICAL, BIOCHEMICAL AND CYTOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS OF DIFFERENT PLANT SPECIES UNDER TRIBE PHASEOLAE OF INDIAN FABACEAE.. Indian Journal of Agricultural Research. 43(3): 187-193. doi: .
The Phaseolae contain in one tribe both the largest number of genera and the
most economic importance of any tribe of the family of Fabaceae. Still, this tribe has
largely been ignored from the time of Bentham’s treatment in Genera Plantarum
(1865).The present study aims at securing data on seed surface study by SEM (scanning
electron microscopy), biochemical (protein characteristics) and cytological (both
chromosomal and in situ DNA methods of different hybrid varieties of some species
of the tribe Phaseolae, with a view to working out the similarity and variability and
interrelationships of different taxa. The present work is an attempt to combine
morphological, biochemical and cytological analyses for an understanding of the
inter-relationships at inter-and intrageneric, specific and varietal levels. Such an
understanding can help in analyzing the taxonomic implications and in formulating
projects for future improvement of these seeds.
