The Alliums are essentially the most historic cultivated vegetation and contain onions, garlic, leeks and different similar vegetation. the first target of this publication is to compile, in one quantity, up to date wisdom got by way of a number of medical disciplines, from the elemental molecular point, to software within the box, of the allium plants. It includes commissioned chapters on issues that experience proven significant advances relatively within the final 10 years akin to molecular biology, floriculture and agronomy. individuals comprise major international professionals from Europe, the us, Japan and New Zealand.

Example text

Most species of subgenus Amerallium produce true bulbs but others have bulbs on rhizomes. Vegetative anatomy and other characters, including molecular data, strongly support its separate status. The basic chromosome number x = 7 dominates, and yet x = 8, 9 and 11 also occur in several morphologically derived groups. Subgenus Microscordum. The monotypic East Asian section Microscordum shares anatomical and morphological characters with the species of subgenus Amerallium, although the plants are tetraploids (2n = 32) on the basic number x = 8.

Their occurrence is not strongly correlated either to the mineral content or pH of the soil or to particular plant-sociological associations or vegetation types. This distribution pattern often results in groups of small populations (Levichev and Krassovskaja, 1981; Hanelt, 1985). However, the occurrence of large populations has also been reported (Hanelt, 1990). Unlike some other Allium species from the same area, taxa of the section Cepa have a fairly long annual growth period and are not ephemeroids.

However, most morphological characters differ remarkably from others in this section and are much more similar to those of section Oreiprason. The study of other wild populations is essential (Klaas, 1998). Recent evidence indicates that A. , 1997, 2000). Allium × proliferum (Moench) Schrad. It has been shown recently that some minor cultivated taxa, formerly thought to be varieties of A. cepa or A. fistulosum, or which were described as distinct species, are in fact hybrids of these two species.
