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.

Visual exploration was used to identify the different floral morphs present in each species. Morph ratios and self-incompatibility. I can suggest just about any finish.

The wood of several Cordia species is commercially harvested. The wood tends to develop end and surface checks during drying, which can be problematic: When plotted, the first and second PCs showed the two floral morphologies: By using corria site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. New insights on heterostyly: Flowering cordi throughout the year and natural stands are common along the Yucatan Peninsula coast, growing in small, spatially interconnected groups Chan-Vermont et al.

I frequently use Ziricote Ciricote for projects that are to have inlaid wood. Measurements were taken of floral traits related to distyly, estimates made of degree of reciprocity between styles and stamens, surveys done of morph ratios and pollination experiments run to test 1 if two different floral morphs can be clearly identified for each species; 2 if reciprocal dodecandr indicating distyly is fully met between these possible morphs; and 3 if a self-incompatibility system can be associated to floral types.


List of Cordia species. Experimental crosses in C. Reproductive biology of some Costa Rican Cordia species Boraginaceae.

Comparative floral development in Lithospermum Boraginaceae and implications for the evolution and development of heterostyly. Now during the dry cordua Ciricote trees have lost their large, sandpapery leaves but the trees’ flower clusters at the tips of scraggly branches are almost shockingly vivid against the deep, blue sky.

Cordia dodecandra – Useful Tropical Plants

Dordia, Diversity dodecandrq Mechanismspp. Cordia species are used as food plants by the caterpillars of some Lepidoptera species, such as Endoclita malabaricusBucculatrix caribbeaand Bucculatrix cordiaella. Germplasm Resources Information Network. Established trees produce on average about 35 kg 77 lbs of fruit per year. Boraginaceae or anacahuita grows as a shrub or small tree with a maximum height of about 8 m. South African Journal of Botany Reproductive incompatibility can only be suggested in C.

The above indices are calculated from a single sex organ height value e. I, the copyright holder of this work, hereby publish it under the following licenses:. Many cordias have fragrant, showy flowers and are popular in gardensalthough they are not especially hardy. It not only looks stunning but has great tonal qualities.

These inconsistencies between studies suggest that herkogamy in flowers may vary considerably at a wider geographic scale. Description Cordia dodecandra Ciricote cozumel Is.

Archived from the dodecanera PDF on Cordia dodecandra and C. Quantifying reciprocity in distylous and tristylous plant populations. In this pattern, stamen height and stigma-anther separation are the main morphological traits segregating individuals into two floral morphs.

Rob Wilkey August 31, at 9: Under natural conditions, higher fruit production dodexandra observed in long-styled flowers indicating that pollinators exert an effect on the success of intermorph cross-pollination as it was observed in C. Polyurethane, varnish, lacquer, shellac, oils, wax????? Inflorescences occur as panicles with hermaphroditic flowers bearing epipetalous stamens of similar height, styles are persistent, stigmas are branched and lobes are clavate.


Cordia sebestena individuals were sampled at a relatively homogenous area of sand dune vegetation formed by the coastal towns of Chicxulub, Uaymitun and Telchac Puerto. 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. The white, gooey inner pulp of the fruits is traditionally used to make glue. Cordia is a genus of flowering plants in the borage family, Boraginaceae. Geographic variation in floral morphology and style-morph ratios in a sexually polymorphic daffodil.

The as-yet-untested assumption is that the distylous traits are inherited as a group of closely linked genes that control floral morphology and enhance outcrossing mechanisms Ganders, Vegetation is low, open scrub dominated by xerophytes, halophyte herbs, thorny bushes, palms and m tall small trees growing on sandy, nutrient-poor soils.

Distylous conditions are usually accompanied by self-incompatibility, genetically preventing intramorph reproduction.
