I have measured the amount of DNA per nucleus in many genera. Often I found
that the difference between the species of a genus is a factor of 1.5 to 3.
However I have always wondered about the following:
Scilla siberica has 75 pg of DNA per nucleus
Chionodoxa siehei has 8.7 pg (THe pink form is larger.triploid and has 13.
pg)
This is a factor 9 difference between scilla and chionodoxa????? This makes
me wonder about the conclusions of the DNA barcoding.
