Contribution to the study of the reproduction and floral biology of Jatropha gossypifolia



Contribution to the study of the reproduction and floral biology of Jatropha gossypifolia



Revista Brasileira de Biologia 44(2): 159-167



This perennial shrub, which grows well in semi-arid conditions, is common in NE brazil and is cultivated in other areas. It is monoecious, protogynous and self-compatible. The plant flowers every 2 months throughout the year, producing small flowers that secrete nectar which attracts many insects. In areas where the plant is cultivated, the main pollinator is the stingless bee Plebeia mosquito. Trigona spinipes also contributes to pollination.
