I think posting genetic info is very important for potential plant  
breeders. You can see if plants might be compatible to produce hybrids. However  I 
think you may be getting into hotwater when you try to list the chromosome  
count of every plant. It would require someone to enter the information 
which  can be time consuming. Plus I think we should consider that the main 
focus of  the group is geophytes, not conifers or palms or clubmosses. I feel if 
you want  to list the chromosome number and any pertinent genetic 
information it should be  limited to what the group was set up to study. Just my 
opinion-Russ H.

As this  is a bulb group Ypu might be interested in other  articles on 
nuclear DNA  content of several other bulbous species apart from Narcissus Like 
Nerine,  Agapanthus, Galanthus, Tulipa ,Lysochiton,Eucomis (also non bulbous 
plants  like Hosta Helleborus Hepatica conifers Araucaria etc)
Who can I approach  to place them on pbs wiki for those interested?

Dear Ben, 
Can those be posted on the PBS wiki somewhere?    Seems like they'd  be of 
interest to quite a few.        Thanks      Jim
