Dioecism in Elingamita johnsonii (Myrsinaceae)

Dioecism in Elingamita johnsonii (Myrsinaceae)

New Zealand Journal of Botany 38(4): 569-574

Flowers of Elingamita johnsonii (Myrsinaceae), endemic to the Three Kings Islands of New Zealand, were collected from sites at Lincoln near Christchurch, South Island, and at Mt Albert and Auckland City, Auckland, North Island. Examination of the flowers confirmed that the species is functionally dioecious. Male plants have larger inflorescences, more flowers per inflorescence and more pollen grains per anther than the female plants.
