Cleistogamous, closed, spike-like flowers (4-6 mm) are found near the base of the plant and produce seeds (Radford et al.
steinmannii is distinguished by the following combination of characters: much-branched shrub with very slender branches and tiny leaves; stipules apparently absent; cleistogamous flowers absent; chasmogamous flowers borne in pairs at tips of vegetative shoots; bracts hardly different from vegetative leaves; dorsal wing of samara identical to the two lateral wings.
Breeding biologies of papilionoid legumes are diverse, ranging from cleistogamous to obligately xenogamous (Kalin Arroyo, 1981).
Thus, cleistogamous plants should have a low P:O ratio and self-pollinating plants should have a lower P:O ratio than cross pollinating plants; in this way the P:O ratio is correlated with the reproductive system of the plant (Cruden, 1977).
This is a minimum estimate of the number of transitions in mating systems in the family: we based our inferences on experimental reports for some species, anecdotal reports for others, and certain assumptions (i.e., that species with stylar movements that ensure self-pollination, or that possess cleistogamous flowers, are in fact self-compatible; and that dioecious species are self-incompatible).
caroliniensis are known to produce both chasmogamous (outcrossed) and cleistogamous (small, self-fertilized) flowers (Long & Uttal 1962; Long & Lakela 1978).
But what an idiosyncratic approach Silano takes in "To Know a Flower." As she often does, she fearlessly uses a specialized vocabulary--"mucronate," "tegules," "axillary," "cymose," "retrosely barbed," "cleistogamous." She raises the question: how to really know a flower?
The term "cleistogamous" derives from two Greek words meaning "secret marriage." Cleistogamous plants produce closed flowers that are entirely self-fertilized.
Intra-inflorescence variability in pollen/ovule ratios in the cleistogamous species Lamium amplexicaule (Labiatae).
This cleistogamous trait has been observed under field and greenhouse conditions at Corvallis, OR, and should be evaluated in other environments as a trait that may limit pollen release into the air.
She is studying the effect of prescribed fire and invasive plant removal on the demography, population genetic structure, and breeding system of Viola conspersa, a state-listed violet that produces both chasmogamous (open) and cleistogamous (closed) flowers.
chasmogamous flowers), but it also produces cleistogamous flowers, which do not open and are self-pollinated.
It reproduces primarily by cleistogamous flowers (obligately self-fertilized), but larger plants may produce chasmogamous flowers (potentially outcrossing).
Plants of Impatiens are capable of producing both cleistogamous (CL) and chasmogamous (CH) flowers.
In Lacistemataceae (Endress, 1999), some Euphorbiaceae (Radcliffe-Smith, 2001; Prenner & Rudall, 2007; Prenner et al., 2008), some Podostemaceae (Cook & Rutishauser, 2007), and some cleistogamous flowers of Violaceae (Weibel, 1941), monosymmetry by reduction is present.
