Morphoanatomy of nectaries of Chamaecrista (L.) Moench sections Chamaecrista , Caliciopsis and Xerocalyx (Leguminosae: Caesalpinioideae)

Abstract: Nectaries are specialized structures that secrete nectar. Several species of Chamaecrista possess nectaries on the petiole, which have been shown to vary widely in morphology and the chemical nature of their secretion. However, a comprehensive investigation of the nectaries of the clade formed by sect. Chamaecrista, Caliciopsis and Xerocalyx has yet to be performed. Our study aimed to confi rm whether or not the leaf glands of species of this clade are in fact nectaries, determine the chemical nature of their … Show more

“…The identification of phenolic compounds in EFNs does not necessarily indicate that they are components of secretion. In fact, these compounds are unpalatable and toxic and are more likely to be involved with providing protection against phytophagous insects and herbivores (Roshchina and Roshchina 1993, Bixenmann et al 2013, Silva et al 2017, Demarco 2017.…”

“…Segundo Melo et al (2010), são relatadas 3.991 espécies de angiospermas que apresentam NEF e, destas, 1.049 pertencem à família Leguminosae. Aspectos estruturais dos NEF, como a morfoanatomia e a disposição dos feixes vasculares que os irrigam, auxiliam na segregação taxonômica em Leguminosae de forma confiável (FREY-WYSSLING, 1955;BHATTACHARYYA & MAHESHWARI, 1970;PASCAL et al, 2000;COUTINHO et al, 2012). Existem indicações de correlações taxonômicas entre certos tipos de tricomas e táxons específicos, em que o tipo de tricoma, glandular e não glandular, pode auxiliar na identificação específica (BOUGHTON, 1989).…”
