The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, cprdia it may be completely wrong. In this pattern, stamen height and stigma-anther separation are the main morphological traits segregating individuals into two floral morphs. Journal of Plant Research Boraginaceae or anacahuita grows as a shrub or small tree with a maximum height of about 8 m.

When plotted, the first and second PCs showed the two floral morphologies: Description Z iricote is a flowering, fruiting and timber tree native to tropical America, its natural range extending from southern Mexico through Belize, Guatemala and Honduras to Cuba in the Caribbean. The generic name honours German botanist and pharmacist Valerius Cordus All variables were left untransformed, except for number of corolla lobules and stamens; these were square-root transformed to meet the assumptions of linearity required for PCA analysis.


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 leafy, rounded or pyramidal crown made up of ascending branches. Reproductive incompatibility can only be suggested in C.

Flowering occurs during the regional dry season, from February to May.

Morph ratios were estimated for each species to determine if the floral morph ratio remained equal between sites since this is a characteristic of distylous plants, in sufficiently large populations Barrett and Shore, ; Dodefandra and Barrett, New Zealand Journal of Botany Canadian Journal of Botany Inflorescences are cymose-panicles with hermaphroditic flowers with epipetalous stamens that are adnate to the corolla in their lower portion Miller, Sampling design and data analysis.
