  • SummaryIn rain forest study plots, the sexes of Compsoneura sprucei (Myristicaceae) were radomly distributed and similar in vegetative dimensions. The sex ratio among adults was estimated as 1.25 male: female. The population showed two flowering episodes per year, of unequal intensity. Sexual dimorphisms in order of increasing difference included the frequency of flowering, the number of flowers per inflorescence and the number of inflorescences per tree. Most females matured only 0–10 seeds… CONTINUE READING
