Nonetheless, contrary to expectations, the autogamous seeds were heavier than the controls in both years in population 1 and in the second year in population 2. Your email address is only for internal communication.

Species name :

The standard is circular and slightly erect showing its reddish brown or black blobs. Pollen grain germination, stigmatic fietida and ovule penetration in Cytisus multiflorus Papilionoideae. AGYFT Close up photo of one of the flowers in the previous photo with annotated explanations of the main flowering foetuda. Both populations have a Mediterranean climate characterized by rainy, cool winters and dry, hot summers Ortega-Olivencia et al.

Legumes and seeds mature during the summer. Large number of compact branches and sub branches forming a shrub or tree. The legumes matures in Summer where they become brown and dehisce to release the seeds inside. Apparent differences between means were analysed using Tukey’s honestly significant difference HSD test.

Locations in Malta or Gozo where you have seen this plant. The central leaflet fietida slightly bigger from the lateral ones.

As in most Fabaceae species, the corolla is basically composed of 5 petals, the upper standard, 2 lateral wings, and 2 central and lower ones known as the keel. Nevertheless, if the fodtida of pollinators is limited, the simultaneous flowering of all individuals could cause intraspecific competition. This value multiplied by the mean number of flowers per inflorescence gave an estimate of the number of flowers per individual in the flowering period. The mean weight of the anagydis varied significantly, both between populations and between years.

AGYFT Another photo of the yellow-green flowers stained with a contrasting iodine-brown blotch on their upper petal.

They are more or less oblong structures with rounded endscurved backwards and somehow crooked. To investigate the relationship between the previously studied variables seed number and weight and the weight of the fruit, a random sample was taken of at least 40 fruit from population 1 and from one of the Andalusian populations Ma1 duringand from populations 1 and 2 during The fooetida are broad, kidney-shaped structures about 14mm long, 9mm wide and 5mm broad.

The underside of the leaf angyris grayish-green.

Both populations presented very high values of synchrony Table 1i. Counts were made of the number of seeds per fruit, and the weight of each seed was determined individually on a precision scale. Rocky slopes at sheltered areas such as at valley sides or maquis. Systematics at different levels.


The androecium is formed by ten free stamens with dimorphic anthers, and the gynoecium, anagyriw 7—11 ovules, is located on a stipe at the base of a small hypanthium where the floral nectar accumulates.

This is because the stigma, like some other legumes, prevents the germination of pollen if its surface is not ruptured by pollinators. Pollination biology of the sea pea, Lathyrus japonicus: It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

The floral, phenological, and reproductive aspects of two populations of this Mediterranean legume from south-west Spain were studied via field and laboratory experiments. One example of an autumn—winter flowering species is Anagyris foetida L.

For the Mediterranean region, most of whose species flower in spring or spring—summer, there is little information available. They are also small in size and have low population densities. Finally, in the control individuals, the flowers of foteida selected and tagged branches were not subjected to any manipulation flowers in — and in —
