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.

Decrease of sexual organ reciprocity between heterostylous primrose species, with possible functional and evolutionary implications. Comparative floral development in Lithospermum Boraginaceae and implications for the dodecanrda and development of heterostyly. Reciprocal herkogamy was estimated graphically and using three indices: Although for intramorph incompatibility was not estimated for Cordia sebestenathe observed floral morph ratio coincides dodecamdra the morph ratio of a distylous, a self-incompatible system.

Distyly and sequential pollinators of Psychotria nuda Rubiaceae in the Atlantic rain forest, Brazil. Toggle navigation useful plants for warm climates. Principal components analysis of flower morphological traits identified segregation into two groups with characteristically distylous morphology.

Revue Suisse de Zoologie. The following page uses this file: Sampling design and data analysis. It contains about species of shrubs and treesthat are found worldwide, mostly in warmer regions. Dodefandra timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong. The RI dodeczndra indicated that stigma height in one morph is closely reciprocal to anther height in the other, and organ positioning precision p i is highly accurate for both high and low organs.


Ziricote trees perform best on free-draining loam soils with a high limestone content, generally with a pH in the range of 7. This implies that stamen length increases as dodecanra corolla tube elongates, as occurs in P. Values range from 1 to -1, with zero indicating perfect reciprocity for both organ levels.

Sectional placement of some problematic Cordia species Boraginaceae. This website is provided for general information only.

Many of the species are commonly called manjackwhile bocote may refer to several Central American species dodecandfa Spanish. Additionally, an idea still unexplored is that the low reciprocity in sexual organs could increase variance in the reproductive success between morphs, thus biasing the proportion of morphs from the 1: It is very dusty, and the dust is somewhat sticky.

Distylous flowers may also differ in ancillary traits, such as pollen grain size and number, dodecancra papillae morphology, stigma shape and corolla size Dulberger, ; Richards, ; McCubbin, ; Ferrero et al.

The reciprocity indices calculated according cogdia Richards and Koptur showed values near zero for both high R High and low organs R Low in C. If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file.


Both species are exclusive to the Atlantic side of the Americas and are similar in morphology, shape and size of flowers and fruits, and even in their pollinators mainly hummingbirds and large bees; Percival, ; Opler et al. The as-yet-untested assumption is that the distylous traits are inherited as a group of closely linked genes that control floral morphology and enhance outcrossing mechanisms Ganders, Evolution, Diversity and Mechanismspp. ATropical tree seed manual, U.

They were not deliberately planted but rather constitute naturally-dispersed individuals allowed to grow by the former garden owners. In this pattern, stamen height and stigma-anther separation are the main morphological traits segregating individuals into two floral morphs.

Under natural conditions, higher fruit production was observed in long-styled flowers indicating that pollinators dodecanrra an effect on the success of intermorph cross-pollination as it was observed dodecadra C.

Population-level variation in the expression of heterostyly in three species of Rubiaceae: Now during the dry season Ciricote trees have lost their large, sandpapery leaves but the trees’ flower clusters at the tips of scraggly branches are almost shockingly vivid against the deep, blue sky.
