Note: this study evaluated 21 taxa of Daucus for male sterility, observing floral development under greenhouse conditions and performing manual crosses, in order to develop new cytoplasmic male sterility sources; this study also focused in clarifying the nature of the sterility: genic or cytoplasmic through expecting segregation patterns (cytoplasmic-non-segregating, genic-segregating); this study showed that all 22 samples of D. involucratus were male fertile (no further studies were reported)

Note: this biogeographic study of Cryptotaenia included members of tribe Scandiceae; Daucus involucratus was resolved sister to D. conchitae within a distant clade to D. carota, and representing one of the two subgroups of the polyphyletic genus Daucus
