Nuclear DNA amounts were determined for nine species, one subspecies and one hybrid of the European Callitrichaceae. The 2C DNA values ranged from 1 -82 pg to 8-30 pg due to variation in chromosome numbers (2n = 6-38) and loss (maximally 40-9%) or amplification (maximally 28-5%) of the DNA amount. The results are discussed in relation to phylogeny.
