Vegetative reproduction and chromosome number of Adesmia bijuga Phil. (Fabaceae), an endemic species critically endangered of the Maule Region, Chile
In this note the vegetative reproduction and chromosome number of Adesmia bijuga Phil., an endemic shrub of Central Chile, that is classified as a critically endangered species, is investigated. Our results indicate a positive response of A. bijuga to the shoot rooting by means of promoting hormones. The chromosome number of A. bijuga is 2n = 20. Most of the chromosomes are metacentrics and of small size.
