Seed type and seed surface patterns in calandrinia sensu lato portulacaceae

Proceedings of the Linnean Society of New South Wales 110(3-4): 307-316

Seed type and seed surface patterns in calandrinia sensu lato portulacaceae

Seed types of Calandrinia are defined as six shapes which are determined by the shape of the embryo and the amount of perisperm present. Ten surface patterns are described and the presence or absence of an aril are considered. The species usually have characteristic shapes and surface patterns but these features rarely characterize the segregate genera or the sections. Within some of the segregate genera and sections, however, there appear to be definite, and sometimes characteristic, phylogenetic trends in these features.
