Caracterização morfológica de frutos e sementes e desenvolvimento pós-seminal de Tamarindus indica L. - Leguminosae: caesalpinioideae

Abstract: -Tamarind (Tamarindus indica L.) is a fruit tree native of tropical Africa, belonging to the Leguminosae family and nowadays is spread along tropical regions of the world. Fruit and seed morphologic characterization is important for species identification and has been used in studies onKey words: Morphology, Seedling, Leguminosae and fruitful tree RESUMO -O tamarindeiro (Tamarindus indica L.) pertence à família Leguminosae e é uma árvore frutífera, nativa da África tropical, de onde se dispersou por todas as r… Show more

“…The testa is smooth, dark brown color, hard consistency when dried, and leathery when hydrated. This agrees with Sousa (2010) when he reported that the testa of the leguminous seeds is usually brown or black.…”

“…Segundo Sousa et al (2010), as sementes de tamarindo germinam a partir dos 10 DAS, podendo chegar à sua completa emergência em até um mês. No presente estudo, o valor do início da emergência (7,0 dias), encontrado em estufa agrícola, mostra que este ambiente favoreceu a germinação das sementes.…”

“…In the present experiment, it is verified that the zygotic embryo of tamarind is axial, with a straight shape, light yellow color, and invaginated ( Figure 3A), with the embryo presenting a curvature during the in vitro germination ( Figure 3B). Its growth is slow and the hypocotyl-root axis is arciform, with plumules containing bifoliolate rudiments ( Figure 3C) and a perceptible radicle ( Figure 3D), such as observed by Sousa et al (2010). The plumule has a pair of light green leaves, and the radicle is lignified, with color from light yellow to light brown and a whitish root cap ( Figures 3C and 3D).…”
