Meconopsis baileyi betonicifolia alba. The flowers of this species have many anthers and many ovules in a polycarpellary apocarpus ovary. Dianthis pulmarius var lumnizerii. Reproductive biology, genetic variation and conservation of the rare endemic dysploid Delphinium bolosii Ranunculaceae.

Aquilegia nivalis : Grows on You

Flower-to-seedling consequences aquildgia different pollination regimes in an insect-pollinated shrub. Present day risk of extinction may exacerbate the lower species richness of dioecious clades. Visitation rate was calculated as the total number of visits made to each population divided by the number of flowers to yield number of insects per flower per hour.

Vol 4, No 9 Consequentially, it has been worked out that in animal-pollinated flowering plants, floral and seed predators and herbivores can dramatically limit seed production Ayre and Whelan, ; Escarre et al.


Abundance, distribution and life histories of grassland plants: Powered by the open source Biodiversity Informatics Platform. As a consequence, flowers will be less qquilegia, resulting in lower seed set Agren, ; Groom, The ovary of each flower was dissected and the number of ovules determined with the help of dissection microscope.

Draba paysonii var treleasii. In the Sarsoon population, the relatively greater number of reproductive individuals nivais many bearing more than one flower, showed a relatively greater reproductive out put above and beyond the prevalence of herbivory. The mean pollen abundance was determined for this species by selecting five reproductive plants and calculating pollen number per anther, flower and plant.

Pollen viability and pollen ovule ratio: The marked seedlings were again counted on the subsequent census to record mortality and survival of the individuals. We have not put up a paywall to readers, and we do not charge for publishing. Role of eFI in Sc.

Aquilegia nivalis

The number of individuals in its populations ranges from 2. Seeds per capsule variable, Low aquillegia of flowering during late stages of their life-history Matsumura and Whashitani, ; Lavergne et al. How plant life-history and ecological traits relate to species rarity and commonness at varying spatial scales.

Are ‘mating systems’ ‘breeding systems’ of inconsistent and confusing terminology in plant reproductive biology? The stigma elongates and reaches up to the tips of petals before anthesces.


Fresh pollen collected from Apharwat, Khillanmarg and Thajwas populations were checked for their viability and longevity of viability. Possible reasons behind the low pollen viability, hence pollen limitation and low seed set, meiotic behavior, prevalence of inbreeding depression in this species need further indepth study. This has been put forth by many other researchers that trait of primary importance in regulating the abundance and distribution of a plant species is its capacity for seed production in nature Byers and Meagher, ; Eriksson and Jakobsson, A comparison of demographic characteristics in a rare and a common species of Eupatorium.

Species specific search options Taxon Hierarchy. But running a monthly journal costs a lot. The study revealed that its perennating organs start sprouting in the first week of June, followed by flowering of individuals in the 3rd week of June and seed formation in the last week of September.

The highest number 2. The transferred pollen quantum in Aquilegia nivalis is much diluted as the insect species forages on other species more preferentially than flowers of this species. This exclusively Himalayan genus in IndiaAquilegia popularly known as Columbine is characterized by five backward projecting spurs.
