Inflorescence development in two annual teosintes: Zea mays subsp. mexicana and Z. mays subsp. parviglumis



Inflorescence development in two annual teosintes: Zea mays subsp. mexicana and Z. mays subsp. parviglumis



American Journal of Botany 77(2): 141-152



The ontogeny of tassels and ears in Z. mays subsp. mexicana and Z. mays subsp. parviglumis was examined using SEM and light microscopy. Ear development in these annual teosintes followed a pattern previously described as leading to the bisexual mixed inflorescence in Z. diploperennis. Common bud primordia were initiated in the axils of distichously arranged bracts along the ear axis. These common primordia bifurcated to form paired sessile and pedicellate spikelet primordia.
