Amaranthaceae are characterized by having solitary flowers, cymose or variously compound (modified cymose) inflorescences, often subtended by bracts or bracteoles (Cronquist, 1981; Kadereit et al.
Some of these characters, including inflorescence position and "winter" development, bracteole position, indumentum of the corolla and filaments, anther texture, presence and positioning of staminal appendages (spurs, awns, tubules, etc.
Inflorescence terminal, rarely axillary, spicate, racemose, or corymbose, sometimes reduced; bracts paired and [+ or -] basal, bracteoles usually present; calyx articulated with pedicel.
Inflorescence terminal or rarely axillary, usually corymbose or umbellate; bracts present, usually as perulae (except Therorhodion where bracts are green), bracteoles paired, usually [+ or -] basal; calyx articulated with pedicel or not.
Inflorescence terminal, flowers solitary; bracts and bracteoles lacking; calyx articulated with pedicel.
Leaf epidermal cells lignified; bracts and bracteoles scarious.
Inflorescence axillary at the end of long branches, flowers solitary; bracts small, grading upward to 1-2 larger bracteoles.
In Kingia, each flower is subtended by a bract and bears two lateral keeled bracteoles (Brown 1827; Waterhouse 1967), whereas the primary inflorescence bracts in Dasypogon are helically arranged, each subtending a cluster of four synchronous flowers and two bracteoles (Figs.
SEM specimen mounting glue or the adhesive from double-side mounting tape was placed onto the tip of a forcep, and this sticky forcep tip was then used to pull bracteoles, sepals, or petals of the flower bud with greater precision than was possible without the adhesive method.
In Juglans and Carya, the husk is thought to have evolved from bract and bracteoles of the inflorescence (Manning, 1940), the same structures that form the wings of Platycarya and Pterocarya.
The husk is derived from various tissues, including involucral bracts, bracteoles, and, in almonds, the outer portion of the ovary wall (exocarp and mesocarp).
Determinate ones undergo conversion of the inflorescence apex into a terminal flower, which may be followed by branching from axils of bracts and bracteoles below the terminal.
The first lateral appendages of the third- and higher-order meristems are paired, opposite foliar structures consistent with Tucker's (1987) definition of bracteoles in other Fabaceae, except that bracteoles tend not to have shoots or buds.
Do the microsporophylls of microsporangia and the bracts and bracteoles of catkins play a functional role in the aerodynamics of pollen entrainment?
Inflorescence solitary or cymose (usually dichasial, rarely monochasial), seldom racemose; bracteoles may be present even large and foliar or connate and adnate to the calyx (Zonanthus).
