Abstract:

{Background and Aims Although there is evidence that both allopolyploid and homoploid hybridization lead to rapid genomic changes, much less is known about hybrids from parents with different basic numbers without further chromosome doubling. Two natural hybrids, Narcissus x alentejanus (2n = 19) and N. x perezlarae (2n = 29), originated by one progenitor (N. cavanillesii, 2n 28) and two others (N. serotinus
