Codonopsis and its allied genera, are a bunch of crops that are vital in financial system and horticulture. A Monograph of Codonopsis and Allied Genera (Campanulaceae s. str.) deals its viewers complete wisdom of those crops together with palynology, cytology, inhabitants biology, morphological description, geographical distribution with vouchers brought up, first-class ink illustrations, and colour images, and keys to genera and to species.

This first-class paintings will facilitate identity of appropriate vegetation, use of plant assets, evaluation of endangered states, the improvement of conservation options, and should advertise systematic and evolutionary study of this group.

  • Provides entire descriptions and classifications of Codonopsis and allied genera
  • Richly illustrated with line drawings and top quality colour photographs
  • Delineates and clarifies the relationships of Codonopsis and its allied teams in accordance with the analyses utilizing info from exterior morphology, pollen morphology, chromosomes, and molecular biology

Pythagoras, the traditional Greek mathematician, didn't himself consume fava beans in any shape; in truth, he banned his fans from consuming them. Cultural geographer Frederick Simoons disputes the competition that Pythagoras proven that ban simply because he famous the risk of favism, a sickness that afflicts genetically-predisposed people who devour fava beans.

Moeliono (1960) merged Campanumoea (including Cyclocodon) with Codonopsis. Hong and Pan (1998) restored Cyclocodon as genus based on observations on pollen grains and seed-coat of two species in Campanumoea sect. Campanumoea and two species in Campanumoea sect. Cyclocodon. Recent molecular works (Eddie et€al. 2003; Haberle et€al. 2009; Wang et€al. 2013) indicated that the closest relative of Cyclocodon is Platycodon, not Codonopsis. Our observations in the present work show that the three species of Cyclocodon are consistent in seed morphology and deserve an independent seed type (Figures.

2011), but they are different in respect of ovary position. In C. inflata, the calyx and corolla are both epigynous but in the other the corolla is epigynous, while the calyx is hypogynous (Figure II 1:6a & b, and Figure IV 1: 45B). In the Codonopsis pilosula / C. tangshen complex, the corolla is epigynous, but the position of calyx varies from typically hypogynous, and thus calyx looks like five free sepals, gradually to half-epigynous (Figure II 1:6f and Figure IV 1: 23B d-g). Corolla: Shape The corolla is rather polytypical in Codonopsis and its allies.
