Musaceae Fruit Methanolic Myricaria elegans Royle Tamaricaceae
Aerial Methanolic Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.
Athel Tamarix--Tamarix aphylla; an Asiatic tree, family Tamaricaceae
, whose blossoms provide nectar for bees; grown in beach and dessert gardens in the southwestern United States.
in the southeastern United States.
Three types of glands have been described: the bladder cells of the Chenopodiaceae; the multicellular glands observed in dicotyledonous species of the families Acanthaceae, Aizoaceae, Aveceniaceae, Combretaceae; Convolvulaceae; Frankiaceae, Plumbaginaceae and Tamaricaceae
(Waisel, 1972; Wahit, 2003; Kobayashi, 2008; Flowers et al, 2010); and the bicellular glands found in species of the Poaceae family (Liphschitz & Waisel, 1974; Fahn, 1979; Wieneke et al.
Vegetation cover is quite sparse and consists mostly of desert shrubs (40-50 cm) and dwarf shrubs (10-15 cm) from the families Chenopodiaceae, Ephedraceae, Tamaricaceae
, and Zigophyllaceae (Unatov, 1960).
Other families listed below with only one species: Mimosaceae, Urticaceae, Cactaceae, Ephorbiaceae, Myrtaceae, Malvaceae, Tamaricaceae
, Moraceae, Umbelliferae, Rhamnaceae, Caryophllaceae, Thymelaceae, Plantaginaceae and Polygonaceae.
These gypsic soils, especially in Iran and middle Asia, support a very distinctive vegetation, gypsophilous vegetation, which consists largely of species belonging to the same families as dominate halophytes (Chenopodiaceae, Tamaricaceae
, as well as Asteraceae and Plumbaginaceae).
In several clades contort petal aestivation occurs, such as in some Lychnideae of Caryophyllaceae (Schoute, 1935), some Droseraceae (Eichler, 1878), Plumbaginaceae (Schoute, 1935), and Tamaricaceae
(Eichler, 1878; Correll & Correll, 1982).
