From: Chromosome numbers of populations of three varieties of Bidens pilosa in Taiwan

Pollen donor Pollen receiver (var. radiata)
Disc floret Mature achene n
var. minor 48.7 ± 3.4 0 ± 0 3
var. pilosa 38.8 ± 2.3 0 ± 0 5
var. radaita (self) 31.8 ± 4.5 0 ± 0 4
var. radiata (cross) 42.3 ± 3.3 23.0 ± 2.0 6
  1. The disc floret number per capitulum, mature achene number per capitulum (mean ± SE), and the number of capitulum counted (n) in crossing experiment by hand pollination in which Bidens pilosa var. radiata as a pollen receiver, receiving pollen from other varieties (var. minor or var. pilosa) or same individual of var. radiata (self), or other individuals of var. radiata (cross)
