Under natural conditions, higher fruit production was observed in long-styled flowers indicating that pollinators exert an effect on the success of intermorph cross-pollination as it was observed in C.
The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.
Excerpts from Jim Conrad’s Naturalist Newsletter. Reciprocal style polymorphisms are not easily categorized: No or negligible fruit production was observed in the intramorph self-pollination and spontaneous self-pollination treatments Table 3.
Medium to fine texture, with good natural luster. Vegetation at both sites includes herbs, shrubs, and trees dodecanra surrounding remnants of dry and sub-humid forests, growing in a nutrient-rich soil environment Rico-Gray et al. This dodecanera reciprocity and precision in C. Its corolla is large, red-orange in color, gamopetalous and funnel-form with lobes, and the calyx is usually bi-lobed.
Distyly is a genetically-controlled polymorphism with two floral morphs exhibiting spatial, reciprocal separation between stigmas and anthers; one morph presents styles above anthers, and the other styles below anthers. In the North this family is nearly always herbaceous but in the tropics it breaks out with woody species. Fully open flowers bagged from the dodecandfa bud stage of each morph were assigned to one of five treatments: Summary [ edit ] Description Cordia dodecandra Ciricote cozumel Is.
Five flowers per inflorescence were assigned to each treatment, labeled after pollination and rebagged until fruit maturity.
Likely to be quite expensive, exceeding the price of some rosewoodsand approaching the cost of some types of ebony. Rubiaceae in Brazilian Cerrado. 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.
I interpret the conspicuously yellow lobes as simply announcing themselves as landing pads for pollinating insects coria will leave their pollen at the stigmas, then follow the style to nectar down deep in the corolla tube.
ACodia tree seed manual, U. Its flowers are large, bright orange in color, gamopetalous and funnel-form with lobes and a nearly truncate calyx.
The above indices are calculated from a single sex organ height value e. Ciricotes were too uncommon to imprint whole streets with their character the way Pink Tabebuias and Lebbeck-Trees did. Plant Systematics and Evolution Journal of the Arnold Arboretum Distyly and sequential pollinators of Psychotria nuda Rubiaceae in the Atlantic rain cordiw, Brazil. This is a very beautiful wood.
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.
Ziricote  and bocote  are sometimes used as wood for making acoustic guitar backs and sides. Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Polyurethane, varnish, lacquer, shellac, oils, wax?????

The American Naturalist The following page uses this file: In conjunction with ancillary traits and the heteromorphic incompatibility system, reciprocal herkogamy plays a key role in controlling pollen movement between distylous flowers.
Central America and Mexico. Curly Pio April 13, at In contrast to previous studies, the C.
