Morphology and vascular anatomy of the flower of Ipheion uniflorum (Raf.) Traub (Amaryllidaceae)

Abstract

O. Fishchuk

We studied the morphology and vascular anatomy of the flowers of Ipheion uniflorum. Anatomy and vascular anatomy, morphology, morphometric parameters of the ovary and the flower are described. We separated the following structural zones in the Ipheion uniflorum gynoecium: synascidiate, symplicate, hemisymplicate, and asymplicate. Septal nectaries appear in the hemisymplicate zone and have a height of about 800 μm. We identified the ovary zones according to W. Leinfelner and calculated the height of the ovary locules from the transverse sections.
