Background Calendula officinalis L. (pot marigold) is an annual aromatic herb with yellow or golden-orange flowers, native to the Mediterranean climate areas. Their seeds contain significant amounts of oil (around 20%), of which about 60% is calendic acid. For these reasons, in Europe concentrated research efforts have been directed towards the dev...

In order to assess the genetic diversity, thirty-four genotypes of Calendula officinalis (L.) were evaluated by means of random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique. The number of amplification products generated by each primer varied from 9 (OPAB-18) to 14 (OPAL-20) with an average of 11.2 bands per primer. The pairwise Nei and Li’s coeffici...

The main objective of the present study was to estimate the heterosis in F 1 and F 2 Calendula hybrids for their response to Aphis fabae attack, as a result of crosses between genetically different parents. The aphids attack was examined as Attack Degree (AD%) on five pot marigold cultivars belonging to the C. officinalis L. and three different spe...

In order to assess the variation of several traits of Calendula seeds, fourteen hybrid families (intra-and interspecific; F 3 generation) were studied. The seeds length, width and seeds thickness were the main quantitative seeds characteristics assessed, on top of the plant emergence as well. The F 3 hybrid C. arvensis '121GE' × C. arvensis '121GE'...

This paper presents a step-by-step approach in statistical and genetic analysis applied in diallel mating design using Griffing's experimental Method II, Model II. A two-step approach is developed and implemented in order to assist the researchers in statistical and genetic analysis of diallel crossing using Griffing's experimental Method II, Model...

In order to identify cultivars with special decorative value and potential genitors for breeding process, 45 genotypes of Calendula genera were analyzed, belonging to six species: C. officinalis, C. alata, C. arvensis, C. stellata, C. suffruticosa and C. tripterocarpa. The average height of plants varied strongly, from 22.0 cm (C. officinalis cv. R...

The family Cactaceae is one of the most popular, easily recognizable and morphologically distinct families of plants. In this study, we analysed 41 genotypes with taxonomic and molecular marker methods (random amplification of polymorphic DNA). The botanical classification that describe the phenotypic aspects of different characters, such as plant...

Calendula (pot marigold) has an extremely wide range of use, due to its properties, is well adapted to temperate climatic zones and easy to grow. The aphids can cause serious damages and they also represent the main vectors of viruses. That is why one of the objectives of pot marigold breeding is to create resistant cultivars. In present study, 45...

Marigolds (Calendula) are considered one of the most versatile and easily to grow flowers in a garden, with ornamental and medicinal importance. In order to identify if seeds traits are correlated and influences rising, there were studied the main characteristics of seeds, belonging to 46 genotypes of Calendula. The character with the greatest vari...
