Abstract

The qualitative morphological features of the Alpine-Dinaric and cultivated populations, as well as of the herbarium specimens of the genus Iris, series Pallidae, were investigated. The height of the plant, leaves, inflorescence, flowers (spathe, perigonium, androecium, gynoecium), fruits and seeds were analysed. It was established that the morphological features analysed did not show phenotypic plasticity. The following qualitative morphological features have possible diagnostic significance: intensity of the leaf vein, spathe colour, perigonium colour, and pollen and seed morphology. Of no diagnostic use are ratio of filament and anther lengths (individual variability), and size and form of the fruits (intrapopulation variability).Istražene su kvalitativne morfološke osobine alpsko-dinarskih i kultiviranih populacija, te herbariziranih primjeraka roda Iris, serije Pallidae. Analizirane su veličina biljaka, listovi, cvatovi, cvjetovi (spate, perigon, andrecej, ginecej), plodovi i sjemenke. Ustanovljeno je da istražene kvalitativne morfološke osobine nisu fenotipski plastične, a mogući dijagnostički značaj ima izraženost lisnog žilja, boja spate, boja perigona, te morfologija peluda i sjemenki. Dijagnostički neupotrebljive osobine su: odnos duljine filamenata i antera (individualna varijabilnost), te oblik i veličina tobolaca (intrapopulacijska varijabilnost)
