Ploidy of rubber tree germplasm in the Rubber Tree Germplasm Repository and the ratio of tetraploid cells in chimeras were analyzed by flow cytometry, and the stomatal traits of different ploidy were analyzed. Eleven triploids and one tetraploid were found from 5177 1981’IRRDB germplasms, nine triploids and two tetraploid and fourteen chimeras were found from 552 Wickham germplasms. The ratio of tetraploid cells in fourteen chimeras ranged from 49.06% to 78.26%. The difference of stomatal length, stomatal width, and stomatal density between different ploidy was significant (P<0.01), the rank of stomatal length and stomatal width was tetraploid>triploid>chimeras, while the stomatal density was reversed. This study was valuable for the use of tetraploid germplasm resources for cross breeding between the ploidy of rubber trees.

Key words: Hevea brasiliensis, germplasm resources, polyploid, flow cytometry, stomatal traits
