The flowering of this species in these months may be a vestige of its Tertiary past, and a strategy adapted to Mediterranean conditions in which passeriform, but not insect, fowtida are abundant at this time of the year Ortega-Olivencia et al.

Comparison of means was performed by one-way analysis of variance ANOVA if the variables were normal or normalizable, using the Brown—Forsythe correction when the data were heteroskedastic; in certain cases, nested ANOVAs were used with treatment nested in year and both in populations. Purple-Black Occasionally found uncoloured pale yellow.

The y axis marks the beginning of anthesis. Advertisement, flower longevity, reward and nectar protection in Labiatae. On the four subsequent days, three angyris per individual were collected at Foefida distribution of Anagyris foetida based on information taken from various floras, with dots indicating exact populations, and location of the studied populations in the Iberian Peninsula.

The leaflets are nearly identical, with the central one being slightly larger. Reniform Broad, kidney-shaped structure.

However, those that are borne from the trunk include more flowers, sometimes reaching up to AGYFT Photo of inflorescence, a raceme of yellow-green flowers that blossom gradually one after the other. This indicates that fertilization takes place gradually over time, even though all the pollen was deposited simultaneously. Plant description and characters. In the following season, the beginning of flowering was delayed a month with respect to —, lasting 15 weeks in population 1 and 14 weeks in population 2, and showing a similar pattern to that season Fig.

Specifically, the main objectives of this study were as follows: Variability in fruit and seeds. This variable was not correlated with the mean temperature or total rainfall of the fruiting period; it was only correlated with the mean temperature of February, a month that, in the Mediterranean zones of the Iberian Peninsula, could be considered as transitional between the harsher months of winter with low temperatures and considerable humidity and the months of spring with moderate temperatures and moderate environmental humidity.


Large number of compact branches and sub branches forming a shrub or tree. Finally, in the control individuals, the flowers of the selected and tagged branches were not subjected to any manipulation flowers in — and in — Systematics at different levels. Note the protruding pistil, which starts to elongate already from the flowering phase. Most angiosperms of the Mediterranean region are pollinated by insects; spring is the most important time for flowering, and the time with most insect pollinators.

In addition, the Extremadura populations differed between years, so that the number of seeds per fruit was significantly lower in As in other zones of the world, in the Mediterranean region, plant—pollinator relationships are subject to the pressure of interference from humans, in particular, habitat fragmentation and isolation, changes in the use of the soil, fire, biological invasions, and climatic change.

After SSP, fruit set was almost zero always less than 0. Basionym or principal synonyms: Having the effect of loosening or opening the intestines, hence stimulating evacuation of feces and so relieving from constipation.

The short, inconspicuous and apressed stipule is found opposite the leaf. It is not surprising that the inflorescences borne directly on the main trunk have more flowers than those borne at the ends of secondary branches, as this may be interpreted as the former benefiting from roetida larger amounts of accumulated resources in the main trunk and branches F.

The mean temperatures of some months of the fruiting period January and February were positively correlated with the number of seeds produced, whereas the mean temperature in May, a much warmer month, was positively correlated with a greater number of abortions of developing seeds.

As shown here, some flowers have already developed an ovary while others have just blossomed. The leaves are stalked and grows in an alternating fashion along the stems. Effects of simulated herbivory on reproduction of a Mediterranean semi-arid shrub Anthyllis cytisoides L.


There are 10 free anagytis with yellow anthers of unequal length arranged as a bundle around the central pistil. Smooth margin without indentations, lobes or any projections. The degree of individual synchrony was determined using the coefficient of Augspurgeradapted to weeks the sampling frequency used in the present work instead of the original days. Anagyris foetida flowers are papilionaceous, pendulous, odourless, green-yellowish when young, and yellow when old. In both foetda, the tendency was to produce fketida greater number of fruits than in the control 1—4.

One example of an autumn—winter flowering species is Anagyris foetida L. During the two flowering seasons — and —, four treatments were conducted with populations 1 foetia 2: If information supplied is taken from a book, journal or website, please provide the corresponding reference or website address.

Anagyris foetida

Each leaf has a tiny stipule at the opposite side of the stem. The normality of the variables was determined using the non-parametric Kolmogorov—Smirnov test with Lilliefors correction, and homoskedasticity using Levene’s test.

Pollen viability was only determined in phases I—IV. The variability in natural fruit and seed set was studied during the summers of — in populations 1 and 2 and in another 12 Iberian anagjris see Fig.

In some species, the long lifespan of foetda flowers has been interpreted as a mechanism to avoid competition and to ensure reproduction for example, Kalmia latifolia L. This phenomenon may be present in many other populations of the distribution area, as, at least in the south-west and east Iberian Peninsula, the populations that we have anagyis are highly fragmented and consist of very few individuals.
