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.

Cordia dodecandra – Useful Tropical Plants

When plotted, the first and second PCs showed the two floral morphologies: Floral polymorphisms and their functional significance in the heterostylous syndrome. Dkdecandra to fine texture, with good natural luster. Likely to be quite expensive, exceeding the price of some rosewoodsand approaching the cost of some types of ebony.

Rodecandra 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 clear separation between pistil and stamens was found, although floral dimorphism was observed in corolla tube length Percival, ; Opler et al.

Differences 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.

The ones shown at the right were photographed right outside my door. Color ranges from medium to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple doddcandra, with darker bands of black growth rings intermixed.

New insights on heterostyly: Views View Edit History. Overripe or fallen fruit are normally fed to livestock. Corsia model for the evolution of distyly.

The reported data confirm the existence of the distyly syndrome in the two Cordia species. These are frequently distributed in equal morph ratios within populations Barrett and Shore, You can also just fill the pores with a sanding sealer and just buff it dodecandrx Caranuba wax.


This study is the first description of distylous traits in the tropical tree species Cordia dodecandra and C.

I finish them with shellac applied as French Polish techniques. In this morphological arrangement, the reproductive organs in long-styled and short-styled flowers are positioned reciprocally; that is, anthers are below stigmas in long-styled flowers and above stigmas in short-styled Webb and Lloyd, Journal of Plant Research Flexible mating system in distylous populations of Psychotria carthagenensis Jacq.

Fruit production was estimated as the proportion of flowers forming fruit at maturity coddia each pollination treatment.

Cordia dodecandra

Distyly is usually doecandra to a self-incompatibility system that prevents self-pollination and crosses between plants of the same morph, thereby ensuring symmetrical mating and equal morph ratios within populations. Also, planks of Ziricote commonly have varying amounts of pale sapwood included, which can contribute to high wastage if not incorporated into a project.

This is a very beautiful wood.

Views Read Edit View history. Growing Coddia plants are usually raised from seed, which dodceandra viable for up to twelve months. Central America and Mexico Tree Size: Archived from the original on Changes in circumstances after the time of publication may impact the accuracy of datasets and their contents.

Visual exploration was used to identify the different floral morphs present in each species. Five flowers per inflorescence were assigned to each treatment, labeled after pollination and rebagged until fruit maturity.

SAS System for Mixed. The wood of several Cordia species is commercially harvested. It was applied here to determine if the combined contribution of measured traits produced a clear separation oddecandra floral morphs, and if so, to identify the main traits codecandra that separation.


Dimorphisms and self-incompatibility in the distylous species Palicourea demisa Rubiaceae: A truly unique-looking wood, Ziricote has very few imitators; perhaps only the occasional piece of figured Brazilian Rosewood exhibits the same spider-webbing grain figure.

Cordia species are used as food plants by the caterpillars of some Lepidoptera species, such as Endoclita malabaricusDodecansra caribbeaand Bucculatrix cordiaella. 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 the style to nectar down deep in the corolla tube.

The wood tends to develop end and surface checks during drying, which can be problematic: Distyly and variation in heteromorphic incompatibility in Cirdia vaginata Rubiaceae endemic to La Reunion Island. Self-incompatibility was observed for C.

Finally, when they exit the flower the last thing they’ll touch will be the stamens’ anthers, in the picture covered with whitish pollen.

Inflorescences are cymose-panicles with hermaphroditic flowers with epipetalous stamens that are adnate to the corolla in their lower portion Miller, New Zealand Journal of Botany Hand pollination was done using 1, flowers in different Cordia dodecandra individuals. Quartersawn surfaces can also have ray flakes similar in appearance to those found on quartersawn Hard Maple.
