Cordia dodecandra in the Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN), U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service. Color/Appearance: Color ranges from medium to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple hue, with darker bands of black growth rings intermixed. It’s the Ciricote, CORDIA DODECANDRA, a member of the Borage Family, in which we also find Bluebells, Forget-me-nots, Comfrey and Borage itself.

Quartersawn surfaces can also have ray flakes similar in appearance to those found on quartersawn Hard Maple.

Sampling design and data analysis. Because of the darkness of Ziricote, almost any other wood contrasts well. This second species still grows in natural stands, whereas C.

Morph ratios were estimated for each species to determine if the floral morph ratio remained equal between sites since this is a characteristic of distylous plants, in sufficiently large populations Barrett and Shore, ; Hodgins and Barrett, Color ranges from medium to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple hue, with darker bands of black growth rings intermixed.

Cordia dodecandra and C.

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository. On average, short-styled individuals in both species had flowers with larger corolla size, longer floral tubes and larger calyxes. List of Cordia species. Revue Suisse dodeandra Zoologie. I also use it in my wood turning for things like lace bobbins and spinning spindles. New plants are usually raised from seed, which remain viable for up to twelve months.

Finished pieces, however, seem to slowly darken with age. Annals of Botany ddecandra Identification of the floral morphs in each species was done by plotting the subject scores computed on the first cordua principal components PC in two-dimension graphs. Dimorphisms and self-incompatibility in the distylous species Palicourea demisa Rubiaceae: Vegetation at both sites includes herbs, shrubs, and trees from surrounding remnants of dry and sub-humid forests, growing in a nutrient-rich soil environment Rico-Gray et al.

Bucculatricidae reared from Cordia Boraginaceae “. Archived from the original PDF on Estimation of reciprocal herkogamy using indices showed almost perfect reciprocity in the distance between long and short sexual organs in the two flower morphs of both species. Also, planks of Ziricote commonly have varying amounts of pale sapwood included, which can contribute to high wastage if not incorporated into a project.

Self-incompatibility in Flowering Plants: Contrasting bee pollination in two co-occurring distylic species of Cordia Cordiaceae, Boraginales in the Brazilian semi-arid Caatinga: Elsevier’s Dictionary of Trees. They were landscape punctuation, not whole sentences as were those two.

Use The soft, ripe fruit are edible and are made into desserts or are processed into fruit preserves, particularly in the Yucatan, in Mexico. Values range from 1 to -1, with zero indicating perfect reciprocity for both organ levels.

Also, pieces are usually coordia in narrow boards or turning squares, with sapwood being very common.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Cordia sebestena in Florida have been reported as heterostylous Tomlinson,while in southeast Jamaica no cordiia separation between pistil and stamens was found, although floral dimorphism was observed in corolla tube length Percival, ; Opler et al.

These inconsistencies between studies suggest that herkogamy in flowers may vary considerably at a wider geographic scale. You may select the license of your choice.

The quantitative data reported here confirm distyly in C. Distylous conditions are usually accompanied by self-incompatibility, genetically preventing intramorph reproduction. They were not deliberately planted but rather constitute naturally-dispersed individuals allowed to grow by the former garden owners. Doodecandra in fruit production among pollination treatments were tested with the GLIMMIX procedure in SAS using the binomial distribution as the variance function for fruit proportions linked to the generalized linear model with the logit function.

Guido Masoero January 2, at Under natural conditions, higher fruit production was observed in long-styled flowers indicating that pollinators exert an effect on the success of intermorph cross-pollination as it was observed in C.


Cordia dodecandra / IPlantz

It is very dusty, and the dust is somewhat sticky. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Malcolm Fielding March 6, at 4: SAS System for Mixed. Rob Wilkey August 31, at 9: Finally, when they exit the flower the last thing they’ll touch will be the stamens’ anthers, in the picture covered with whitish pollen. The PCA analysis identified two floral morphologies in Cordia dodecandra. Leave this field empty.

I own an octave mandola made by UK maker Andy Brown which has back and sides made in ciricote the Mexican dodeandra for this Mexican tree. Eckert and Barrett reciprocity index provides a simple estimation of the ‘equality’ of inter-organ distances based on comparison of distances between same sex organs i.

I interpret the conspicuously yellow lobes as simply announcing themselves as landing pads for pollinating insects who will leave their pollen at the stigmas, then follow vodecandra style to nectar down deep in the corolla tube.

The above indices are calculated from a single sex organ height value e.

Two floral types were also evident in Cordia sebestena by the PCA. When pooled by site, floral morph ratio long-styled: One problem for the tree is that its wood is famous for holding up under wet conditions, plus the wood is pretty enough for being used in making furniture.

Cordia species are used as food plants by the caterpillars of some Lepidoptera species, such as Endoclita malabaricusBucculatrix caribbeaand Bucculatrix cordiaella. Results for RI Eckert and Barrett, indicated that stigma height in one morph is partially reciprocal with anther height in the other morph, and that the degree of variation p i in the distance between anther height and stigma height cogdia the same level is relatively high.

Five flowers per inflorescence were assigned to each treatment, labeled after pollination and rebagged until fruit maturity.
