Here in the tropics we have lots of woody Buckwheat Family members, and Gymnopodium floribundum is the most common one locally.

Integrated resource of protein families, domains and functional sites More Automatic assertion inferred from database entries i. During its flowering period, it accounts for almost half of the total honey production in the Yucatan. If in searching for the scent’s source you look up you may see what’s shown above.

The flowers have a heavy flow of gymnopocium, more than enough for honey production and it is, in fact, one of the most productive honey plants in Mexico as well as the world, with reported yields of up to kgs lbs of honey per colony per season.

Observation specific search options Observed during. Or, Login with your user account:. In the tropical forests of Mexico above- and below ground ectomycorrhizal fungal component has not been investigated and for tropical members of the Polygonaceae, the ectomycorrhizal associates of Coccoloba but not of Gymnopodium have been recorded.

This is version 14 of the entry and version 1 of the sequence. Small green yymnopodium follow, usually cloaked in the dried sepals, and are about 1 cm 0. The bark is dark brown, fissured and shredding or peeling in long strips.

Therefore, as with the fruiting heads of dock and Coralvine, each three-winged fruiting head of Gymnopodium floribundum consists of three one-seeded, achene-type fruits bearing a papery wing, which helps disperse the fruit on the wind. Problem features Bastard Logwood seeds floribhndum and suckers from the roots, forming thickets over time. While lineages of these groups are recognized as important elements of the ectomycorrhizal fungal community in different tropical forest worldwide, in the tropical forests of Mexico above- and floribunddum ground EcMF component has not been investigated and for tropical members of the Polygonaceae, to our knowledge, the ectomycorrhizal associates of Coccoloba but not of Gymnopodium have been recorded [ 18 – 29 ].


Recent field work developed in a monodominant forest of Gymnopodium floribundum Polygonaceae in the tropical gymnopoduum forest established in southeastern Mexico Chiapas Stateled us to discover a number of above ground fruit bodies of putative ectomycorrhizal gymnlpodium of basidiomycetes families Boletaceae, Amanitaceae, Russulaceae, Cortinariaceae and Cantharellaceae, and also to know the edibility of basidiomes of Tremelloscypha gelatinosa and Lactarius chiapanenesis both gymnoporium during the rainy season by local people for consumption.

Bastard Logwood is typically a low-branching shrub or small tree 3 to 8 m 10 to 26 ft tall, with numerous crooked and ascending branches, forming an untidy V-shaped crown. In fact, as I took the above picture the whole small tree buzzed with bee busyness. Monocots, like grasses, lilies and orchids, usually have narrow and parallel-veined leaves and flowers with parts in threes or multiples thereof. Also the little green ovary in the flower’s center has three style branches.

Well, Nature is full of exceptions to nearly everything, and this is one of them. The presence of Lactarius chiapanenesis and Tremelloscypha gelatinosa under Gymnopodium trees, suggested then, the possibility that G.

Database of comparative protein structure models More Its interesting, fingernail-size, three-winged fruiting clusters are shown below:. It is much appreciated in its native range, with only a gymnopodiim amount of it exported.

The presence of such fungal groups under Gymnopodium trees suggested the possibility that G. G0YGN1 Primary citable accession number: In the last few years as part of our monitoring gymnopodihm to study the macrofungi inhabiting different forest ecosystems from Mexico, we have focused our research on recognizing ectomycorrhizal fungal species associated to putative ectomycorrhizal trees, especially on tree species or on forest ecosystems devoid of information about the specific mycobionts.

Those are little flowers, smaller than a thumbnail, and if you’re sensitized to how average blossoms on “normal” broadleaved bushes and trees look you’ll notice something gymnopodiu about these flowers: Demography and Conservation Demography and Conservation.

We have in developing a long-term project to investigate the ectomycorrhizal cloribundum community of Gymnopodium floribundum in the tropical deciduous forest of southeastern Mexico with the following main goals: If you’re familiar with the edible herb called dock, or the pretty vine called Coralvine — both members of the Buckwheat Family, the Polygonaceae — you’ll notice similarities between those plants’ fruiting heads and the ones on our little tree.

Beyond of records of above ground fruit bodies the EcMF communities are being more accurately revised, based on below ground distinctive root tips morphotypes.
