The analysis of the relative DNA content of samples of Selaginella borealis and Selaginella sanguinolenta from various regions was carried out. A high polymorphism in the relative DNA content was revealed, which is apparently related to differences in the main chromosome number between different populations. Also revealed one polyploid plant.

Acta Biologica Sibirica is a golden publisher, as we allow self-archiving, but most importantly we are fully transparent about your rights.

Authors may present and discuss their findings ahead of publication: at biological or scientific conferences, on preprint servers, in public databases, and in blogs, wikis, tweets, and other informal communication channels.

ABS allows authors to deposit manuscripts (currently under review or those for intended submission to ABS) in non-commercial, pre-print servers such as ArXiv.
