Stenanona flagelliflora was described in 2004. There are no studies on its biology. The goal of this study was to document some aspects of its reproductive biology. The particular objectives were to: i) describe the variation on vegetative and floral traits; ii) establish the composition of the community of floral visitors; iii) estimate the mating system and reproductive success; and, iv) establish the relationship between vegetative traits and reproductive success. The study was conducted… Expand

Reproductive biology and pollinators of a steno-endemic and critically endangered tree, Monoon tirunelveliense (Annonaceae), from Kalakkad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve (KMTR), India
Reproductive biological studies on the endemic and threatened plants are vital to understand pollinators and their role in seed setting and their dispersal, and thereby identify appropriateExpand
The evolution of key functional floral traits in the early divergent angiosperm family Annonaceae
The plesiomorphic apocarpous trait may have been perpetuated in Annonaceae flowers as it promotes the independent dispersal of fruit monocarps (derived from separate carpels), thereby maximizing the spatial/temporal distance between seedlings. Expand
Annonaceae squamosa una fuente de acetogeninas en la actualidad
This paper presents a review of their knowledge on the biosynthetic pathway and biogenetic acetogenins, which will improve the understanding of secondary metabolism of these pharmacologically important molecules. Expand


A novel pollination mode, saprocantharophily, in Duguetia cadaverica (Annonaceae): A stinkhorn (Phallales) flower mimic
This extraordinary pollination system, whereby flowers mimic olfactory and visual cues of fungi, is rare and previously only known from three angiosperm families (Araceae, Aristolochiaceae and Orchidaceae) wherein the pollinators were flies. Expand
Reproductive biology of Asimina parviflora (Annonaceae)
Flowering and fruiting of the small flowered pawpaw, Asimina parviflora (Michx.) Dunal, was studied in central Florida to determine phenology, pollination, breeding system and germination. Expand
Reproductive Biology of two Florida Pawpaws: Asimina obovata and A. pygmaea (Annonaceae)
Field observations and experiments in central Florida determined phenology, pollination, breeding system, and crossability of Asimina obovata and A. pygmaea, both of which are strongly protogynous and similar in floral morphology, but differ in color and scent. Expand
Biologia floral e sistema de reprodução de Annona squamosa L. (Annonaceae) na região de Petrolina-PE
The species is self-compatible, however the germination tests indicated that seeds from cross-pollination show higher viability than seeds from geitonogamy. Expand
Pollination Ecology and Breeding System of Xylopia championii (Annonaceae): Curculionid Beetle Pollination, Promoted by Floral Scents and Elevated Floral Temperatures
The pollination ecology and breeding system of the Sri Lankan endemic Xylopia championii (Annonaceae) are described in detail and low levels of fruit set in natural conditions suggest that pollinator availability may be a limiting factor. Expand
Reproductive biology ofPolyalthia littoralis (Annonaceae)
The observations of meiotic stages and the results of castrated tests indicated no possibility of apomictic reproduction of Polyalthia littoralis, and the following self-pollination guarantees seed set. Expand
Parthenocarpy and seed predation by insects in Bursera morelensis.
Parthenocarpic fruits in B. morelensis might function as a deceit strategy for insect seed predators as they are unprotected both chemically and mechanically by the absence of calcium oxalate crystals. Expand
First records of flower biology and pollination in African Annonaceae: Isolona, Piptostigma, Uvariod
Seven species from five genera of Annonaceae were studied with regard to their flower biology and pollination in the Southwest Province of Cameroon, West Africa, with exception of Uvariopsis species, which are monoecious, which have either cantharophilous or myiophILous/sapromyiophilious flowers with remarkably long anthesis, thermogenesis, and widely open, large flowers.

Beetle pollination and flowering rhythm ofAnnona spp. (Annonaceae) in Brazil
A staggered flowering period and an alternative attraction of different beetle species seems to be more a device for diminishing competition between the cooccurring Annona spp. Expand
Cockroach pollination and breeding system of Uvaria elmeri (Annonaceae) in a lowland mixed-dipterocarp forest in Sarawak.
This report reports on the pollination of a woody climber species, Uvaria elmeri (Annonaceae), by cockroaches in a lowland mixed-dipterocarp forest in Sarawak, Malaysia, to the best of the authors' knowledge. Expand
