Paclobutrazol for Height Control of Petunias
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2008)
Flower movement balances pollinator needs and pollen protection
(Ecological Society of America, 2018)
Flower signaling and orientation are key characteristics, which determine a flower's pollinator guild. However, many flowers actively move during their daily cycle, changing both their detectability and accessibility to ...
Nectar Replaced by Volatile Secretion: A Potential New Role for Nectarless Flowers in a Bee-Pollinated Plant Species
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2018-09-05)
The presence of nectarless flowers in nectariferous plants is a widespread phenomenon in angiosperms. However, the frequency and distribution of nectarless flowers in natural populations, and the transition from nectariferous ...
Flowering cycles of woody bamboos native to southern South America
(Springer Tokyo, 2014-03)
Neotropical woody bamboos range from northern Mexico to southern Argentina and Chile. The most interesting aspect of bamboo biology is their flowering habit. The species that are the most intriguing are those that manifest ...
Multiple Ornamental Uses of Costus stenophyllus Standl. & LO Williams
(Int Soc Horticultural Science, 2013-01-01)
Costus stenophyllus or bamboo costus, despite its high ornamental potential, is still little known in the cut flower and ornamental plant market. The bamboo costus is a spiral ginger admired for its beautiful stems that ...
Factors affecting pollinator movement and plant fitness in a specialized pollination system
The rate of pollen exchange within and among flowers may depend on pollinator attraction traits such as floral display size and flowering plant density. Variations in these traits may influence pollinator movements, pollen ...
The potential for indirect effects between co-flowering plants via shared pollinators depends on resource abundance, accessibility and relatedness
Co-flowering plant species commonly share flower visitors, and thus have the potential to influence each other's pollination. In this study we analysed 750 quantitative plant–pollinator networks from 28 studies representing ...
REPRODUCTIVE-BIOLOGY OF THE DISTYLOUS MANETTIA-LUTEO-RUBRA (RUBIACEAE)
(Georg Thieme VerlagStuttgartAlemanha, 1995)
The dynamics of FLOWERING LOCUS T expression encodes long-day information
Long days repeatedly enhance the expression of the FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) gene during the evening and early night. This signal induces flowering despite low FT expression the rest of the day. To investigate whether this ...
