Seed proteins of eight species of the genus Suaeda (Chenopodiaceae) were
compared by means of polyacrylamide disc gel electrophoresis. Different
samples of the same species showed not less than 89% similarities, and
geographical separation had no remarkable effect on seed protein patterns of the
same species. Morphological heterogenity, that creates difficulties in
infrageneric classification, was also evident in clustering analysis of protein
bands. S. microsperma, which is morphologically very close to S. acuminata,
was found a great distance away from any other species
