Other scutella quickly turned from green to yellow and more slowly turned brown in color (Table 3) and only yellow or brown scutella were observed dehiscing. Similar patterns of scutellar development were observed in the field study of Wright's skullcap.
With the above factors borne in mind, those individuals who consider 'providing competent and skilled assistance under the direct supervision of the operating surgeon while not performing any form of surgical intervention' (PCC 2003, p2) might ask themselves whether this is any different from dressing a fungating breast tumour, excised pilonidal sinus, arterial leg ulcer, extensive full thickness thermal injuries, (which expose nerves, tendons or blood vessels) or a dehiscing abdominal wound in the inpatient environment.
When harvested after the time of maximal harvested seed yield, seed yield will always decline because of the rate of dehiscing pods with the accompanying shattered seed losses will be greater than the rate of newly maturing pods that are ready to harvest.
Conspicuous red dots at the mouth of the funnel act as "nectar guides" but direct visitors, not to the nectar (which is minimal), but to pollen that is shed by the sequentially dehiscing anthers.
At first these studies used indirect estimates of siring success, such as pollinator visit rates or the export of fluorescent dyes applied to dehiscing anthers (reviewed by Bertin 1988; Snow and Lewis 1993).
Dehiscing pollen cones and receptive ovulate cones have been observed only at one time per year, with a more or less regular cycle of 3-1/2 months for cone formation and maturity and 1-2 months of dehiscence and receptivity.
The capsule is ovate or ellipsoid, dehiscing along the ring of abscission tissue which is developed around the capsule [23,6].
The shedding of seeds from the dehiscing pods of the progenitors and the loss of intact pods or seed from shattering pods of other genotypes shortly before reproductive maturity tended to cause underestimations of both seed yield potential and HI.
We estimated pollen movement within three populations in each year by applying powdered fluorescent dyes (Series JST-300, Radiant Color, Richmond, California) to the dehiscing anthers of flowers on focal plants.
Seed dispersal experiments using naturally dehiscing fruits have found that the vast majority of Lesquerella seeds remain within one meter of the parent plant (R.
forms a clade, which is characterized by the petals ovate to obovate, and conspicuously unguiculate; calyx lobes separating into sepal-like segments at anthesis; anthers ovate to oblong, straight, yellow, usually without connective appendages; anthers dehiscing by small apical pores; and seeds numerous, small (1-2 mm), obpyramidal, with a smooth testa.
tortilis [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2A, B OMITTED], and more marked in the later dehiscing A.
Complete pollen control was more difficult to achieve in the triplet experiments because it was necessary to contain pollen being shed from plants (i.e., dehiscing plants).
