Table 1 Characteristics of somatic chromosomes at metaphase in Taiwanese Lilium callosum

From: Re-emergence of Lilium callosum Sieb. et Zucc. in Taiwan after a fire allows propagation and renews the possibility of conservation

  2. bRelative length (%) = (chromosome length/total chromosomes length) × 100
  3. cThe position of the centromeric constriction was recorded as median (m 1.0–1.7), submedian (sm 1.71–3.0), subterminal (st 3.01–7.0), and terminal (t > 7.01). m (sat) median with satellite
