Original meiotic chromosome counts are presented for 12 species in seven families of Angiosperms from Iran, including Allium lngisepalum Bertol. (n=8), Allium cristophii Trautv. (n=8), Allium scabriscapum Boiss. & Kotschy (n=8), Centaurea gaubae (Bornm.) Wagenitz (n=14), Leucanthemum vulgare, (n=18), Tragopogon vaginatum (n=6), Ferula persica Willd. (n=11), Zosima absinthifolia (Vent.) Link. (n=5), Lathyrus rotundifolius Willd. (n=7), Erodium oxyrrhychum M. Bieb. subsp. Oxyrrhychum (n=20), Agrimonia procera (Rosaceae) (n=28), Dendrostellera lessertii Van Tiegh (n=9). Three counts are reported for the first time and eight meiotic studies are presented here for the first time.
