In the present work the inflorescences of 12 species of Cyperus sect. Luzuloidei Kunth sensu Kükenthal were analyzed using the methodology and terminology of Troll's school. All the inflorescences studied are polytelic (indeterminate). The inflorescences are anthela-like or capitate, and can be terminal or pseudolateral. Below the main florescence a(More)
This work presents the basics for interpreting the adult inflorescence structure in Cyperaceae. It provides an analysis of the variations of the synflorescence and inflorescence structure in the family. Three types of synflorescence may be recognized in this family: a synflorescence with a foliate stem, a terminal inflorescence and a variable number of(More)
Abildgaardieae poses several taxonomic challenges, because there is no general agreement on its circumscription and infrageneric divisions. With the objective of providing data with taxonomic and phylogenetic value, the structures of the inflorescences of Abildgaardia, Bulbostylis, and Fimbristylis were analyzed following the methodology and terminology of(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY The understanding of homoplasic structures becomes more relevant when they are complex and define large angiosperm taxa. Inflorescence architecture usually fulfills both features, as happens with Cyperus, a genus with two taxonomical subdivisions characterized either by alternative expressions of Kranz anatomy (C(3) or C(4)) or(More)
The typology developed by Troll was followed to describe inflorescence structures for 15 species of Spartina. In all species here studied, truncation of the terminal spikelet of the main axis and primary paracladium was observed. The truncation can also involve the short paracladia subzone so that the inflorescence is confined to just the long paracladia(More)
