TitleFlowers and fruits in Flacourtiaceae. II. The seeds of Pangium edule Reinw
JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractThe seeds are inferior. Only in the apical part of the seed the testa is integumental; for the greater part it is chalazal. A thick mesotesta is formed by a matted layer of sclereids. The chalazal part of the ectotesta is richly vascularized. A sheath of inverted vascular bundles occurs on the inside of the chalazal part of the mesotesta. The seeds are albuminous, the cotyledons foliaceous. An inside cavity may make the seeds float in water. The nucellar beak persists in the ripe seed. The endopyle is five-rayed in c.s., the ectopyle is a longitudinal slit.
