Tetramery encompasses the calyx, the corolla, the androecium, and the contour of the nectary
Leaflets semi-succulent, 21-88 X 9-41 mm, pilose to tomentose, midrib excentric; nectary
pyramidal; flowers c.
In the modern genera Woodfordia and Sonneratia the stipe is short and in Sonneratia it is encircled by a floral nectary
(Tobe et al.
ovalifoliolata such as fresh mild odour, hidden nectar in modest quantity and pinkish red nectary
disc serving as nectar guide conform to bee-flowers (Faegri and van der Pijl, 1979).
esculentus flowers; then the nectary
is no easily accessible for these bees perhaps due to their body sizes (body length = 1.
All the flowers were protected from nectar robbing by placing acetate rings over the nectary
Flowering phenology, nectary
structure and breeding system in Corymborkis flava (Spiranthoideae: Tropididae), a terrestrial orchid from a Neotropical Forest.
A young nectary
has a plug in an orifice, and as the nectary
matures, the plug is expelled and an additional new orifice, with a plug, is added.
Spatial variation in the effect of ants on an extrafloral nectary
The compounds could simply be leaking out of the plant into the nectary
We analyzed the total number of flowers approached and fed upon, the mean times of nectary
"discovery" and probing duration, and the total time spent foraging, for both days using repeated measurements ANOVA, to test the hypothesis that negative reinforcement reduces foraging intensity.
At anthesis (flowering) time ovary is surrounded by a bright green belt thought to be a nectary
