Cordia dodecandra in the Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN), U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service. Color/Appearance: Color ranges from medium to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple hue, with darker bands of black growth rings intermixed. It’s the Ciricote, CORDIA DODECANDRA, a member of the Borage Family, in which we also find Bluebells, Forget-me-nots, Comfrey and Borage itself.

Flexible mating system in distylous populations of Psychotria carthagenensis Jacq. Discussion Both Cordia dodecandra and C. Vegetation is low, open scrub dominated by xerophytes, halophyte herbs, thorny bushes, palms and m tall small trees growing on sandy, nutrient-poor soils.

Self-incompatibility in Flowering Plants: Angus Steven May 27, at 3: New Zealand Journal of Botany Retrieved from ” https: Furniture, veneer, cabinetry, gunstocks, musical instruments acoustic and electric guitarsturned objects, and other small specialty wood items. This implies that stamen length increases as the corolla tube elongates, as occurs in P.


Increased floral size, derived mainly from long corolla tubes, has been associated with the short-styled morph in other distylous species including several Amsinckia species, genus Glandoraand Lithospermum densiflorum Boraginaceae; Ganders, ; Li and Johnston, ; Ferrero et al.

Reproductive biology of some Cirdia Rican Cordia species Boraginaceae. These inconsistencies between studies suggest that herkogamy in flowers may vary considerably at a wider geographic scale.

Self-incompatibility was observed for C. Morph-specific variation of floral traits associated with reciprocal herkogamy in natural populations of Primula vulgaris and Primula veris.

New insights on heterostyly: Comparative floral development in Lithospermum Boraginaceae and implications for the evolution and development of heterostyly. From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository. University of Massachusetts Boston. In Indiathe fruits of local species are used as a vegetableraw, cooked, or pickledand are known by many names, including lasora in Hindi.


I interpret the conspicuously yellow lobes as simply announcing themselves as landing pads for pollinating insects who will leave their pollen at the stigmas, then follow the style to nectar down deep in the corolla tube. Complementary data was collected by documenting the morphs present at each site dodeccandra morph self-incompatibility. Of the floral traits involved in distyly, reciprocal herkogamy is the main morphological component shaping floral morphs Ganders, Fully open flowers bagged from the flower bud stage of each morph were assigned to one of five treatments: This precision index p i is complementary to the RI and estimates the degree of variation dodecamdra the distance between anther height and stigma height at the same level.

Ziricote trees perform best on free-draining loam soils with a high limestone content, generally with a pH in the range of 7.

Josh Sicilian October 7, at 1: Visual exploration was used to identify the different floral morphs present in each species. Distylous conditions are usually accompanied by self-incompatibility, genetically preventing intramorph reproduction. Contrasting bee pollination in two co-occurring distylic species of Cordia Cordiaceae, Boraginales in the Brazilian semi-arid Caatinga: Sampling design and data analysis.

Leave this field empty.

Given the absence of intersite difference in floral morphology for both studied Cordia species, all reciprocity indices were calculated by pooling sampling site data for each species. Observed hummingbird visitors to C.

Bert June 20, at 9: Breeding mechanisms in trees native to tropical Florida.

Inflorescences are cymose-panicles with hermaphroditic flowers with epipetalous stamens that are adnate to the corolla in their lower portion Miller, Their rough texture also discourages roaming livestock from browsing on them.


Color ranges from medium to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple hue, with darker bands of black growth rings intermixed. It seems to darken a moderate amount with age. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

cordia dodecandra

It grows slowly to heights of up to 30 m 98 ft in its natural habitat, though it is more typically 15 to 20 m 50 to 65 ft tall and develops a straight trunk supporting a densely dodedandra, rounded or pyramidal crown made up of ascending branches. Pollination treatment and floral morph were set as fixed factors in the model. Canadian Journal of Botany The following other wikis use this file: It not only looks stunning but has great tonal qualities.

On the contrary, morph ratio in C. The reciprocity indices calculated according to Richards and Koptur showed values near zero for both high R High and low organs R Low in C.
