or not the flowers; f) rachilla persistent or deciduous at maturity; g) type of rachilla disarticulation at maturity (not disarticulating, disarticulating above the prophyll, disarticulating below the prophyll, shattering with points of abscission at the base of each fruit or not shattering); h) rachilla with wings or wingless, i) wings deciduous or persistent; j) glumes spirally or distichously disposed; and k) glumes persistent or deciduous (completely, incompletely, individually or collectively deciduous).
The chaff pile yielded a small charred assemblage that contained mostly glume bases.

A new glume appears as a tim-like structure, which soon subtends a floral primordium (Fig.
For example, Isolepis humillima, placed in Isolepis due to the presence of spiral glume arrangement, has been interpreted as having an embryo similar to Scirpoides (Wilson, 1981).
At Makri (Valamoti 2004: 62, 67), the presence of dung was inferred from the co-existence of glume bases, fig seeds and wild/weed seeds (many of which were from non-arable habitats) in the samples.
based on this principle, one of the genus-level diagnostic phytoliths for Oryza, the double-peaked glume cell, was studied in detail by a multivariate technique, discriminant function analysis, to determine if the characters of this phytolith type could be used to separate species of Oryza (Pearsall et al.
Grains, fragments of glume and rachis internodes have all been preserved.
Nearly a century ago German botanists studying grass morphology identified distinctive Oryza glume phytoliths (Formanek 1899; Grob 1896).
Maize cobs separate into nutritionally distinct, different sized particles comprising of a hard or woody fraction and a soft fraction consisting of glumes, core, grain clippings and fine dust when ground.
Among the evaluated phonological traits, the number of days to the spike emergence (the interval between cultivation to spike emergence in each of the experimental units) were recorded, the number of days up to flowering (the interval between cultivation to stamen emergence in the spikes of experimental units) were recorded, the number of days up to physiological maturation (Perfect loss of green color of glumes and their yellowing were considered as a criterion to determine the time of physiological maturation) [16] and the number of days from cultivation time up to this stage was recorded) and grain filling period (the number of days from flowering up to physiological maturation represented the grain filling period).
Sorghum grains collected were cleaned to remove stones, dust and light materials, glumes and stalks, and broken, undersized and immature grains.
