  • subspecies
  • It has larger, glossier leaves than other subspecies, and occurs much further north. (wikipedia.org)

  • Seedlings have narrowly obovate bright green cotyledons 1.2-1.4 cm (0.5-0.6 in) long by 0.3-0.4 cm (0.1-0.2 in) wide, and the leaves which develop immediately afterward are linear and scattered, and the stem is hairy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leaves obovate to oblong-elliptic, 0.7-2.7 cm long, 7-12 mm wide, margins entire, shortly recurved to almost flat, upper surface convex, glabrous or with a few scattered, appressed hairs, lower surface bearing dense matted short hairs sometimes overlain by sparse long, appressed hairs.

  • insights
  • The ∼430-My-old Herefordshire, United Kingdom, Lagerstätte has yielded a diversity of remarkably preserved invertebrates, many of which provide fundamental insights into the evolutionary history and ecology of particular taxa. (blogspot.ru)
  • Coprolites provide unique insights into the plant taxa consumed over a discrete time period by extinct herbivores and have typically been used to reconstruct the diets of single herbivore species. (pnas.org)
  • reminiscent
  • Many plant pathogenic foliicolous fungi recorded on Proteaceae hosts in South Africa are reminiscent of members of the Mycosphaerellaceae and their anamorphs. (sun.ac.za)
  • It has highly pinnate leaves which can vary in appearance and are reminiscent of parsley. (wikipedia.org)
  • Found
  • Found on sandy soils in heathland or shrubland, it grows to 2 m (7 ft) high and 3 m (10 ft) across with fine needle-like leaves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Latin
  • He also did not explicitly give an etymology for the specific epithet, but it is accepted that the name derives from the Latin verticillatus ("whorled"), in reference to the whorled leaf arrangement. (wikipedia.org)
  • He gave it the epithet scabrella, a diminutive of the Latin adjective scaber "rough", referring to the leaves. (wikipedia.org)
  • stems
  • The stiff leaves are arranged in whorls of 3, or sometimes up to 4 to 6, on the stems, and are linear to narrow-oblanceolate in shape. (wikipedia.org)
  • The small linear leaves measure 0.8 to 2.8 cm in length and 0.1 cm in width and are crowded along the stems. (wikipedia.org)
  • juvenile
  • He pointed out that Salisbury's original described the leaves only, was insufficient to diagnose the species and is hence a nomen dubium-the description could have fit juvenile leaves of B. paludosa as well. (wikipedia.org)
  • brownish
  • The linear leaves have a slight rust-red tinge when young and their undersurfaces are covered with flat, silky brownish hairs. (anbg.gov.au)
  • long
  • The leaves are lance-shaped or oblong, 50-200 mm (2.0-7.9 in) long and 5-20 mm (0.20-0.79 in) wide and have a pointed apex. (wikipedia.org)
  • I. confertus was a plant from Rylstone on the Central Tablelands, which he distinguished by its crowded leaves that were 7-8 cm (2 3⁄4-3 1⁄4 in) long. (wikipedia.org)
  • I. eriophorus was a plant with more scattered leaves that were 12-14 cm (4 3⁄4-5 1⁄2 in) long. (wikipedia.org)
  • The auricle at the base of the cotyledon leaf is pointed and measures 0.2 cm (0.079 in) long. (wikipedia.org)
  • The leaves, which are up to 15 mm (0.6 in) long, are silvery, and deeply lobed into nine or more soft, hairy laciniae about half a millimetre in diameter. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reaching up to 8 m (26 ft) in height, it is a single-stemmed plant that has oblong leaves, which are 3-9 cm (1.2-3.5 in) long and 2-7 cm (0.8-2.8 in) wide. (wikipedia.org)
  • The oblong, cordate or obcordate leaves are 3-9 cm (1.2-3.5 in) long and 2-7 cm (0.8-2.8 in) wide, with 3-5 mm (0.12-0.20 in) long petioles. (wikipedia.org)
  • name
  • The common name is variously written as narrowleaf-, narrow-leaf-, or narrow-leafed drumsticks. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1978 he published a new description of the taxon, giving it species rank with the name Adenanthos macropodiana, and synonymizing A. sericea var. (wikipedia.org)
  • unique
  • To address this issue, a phylogenetic analysis of the ITS-1, 5.8S and ITS-2 DNA sequence data was performed to determine relationships between members of the Mycosphaerellaceae and some taxa apparently unique to the Proteaceae. (sun.ac.za)
  • garden
  • Today the garden cultivates about 9,000 taxa, with excellent collections of succulents (880), Begoniaceae (89 spp. (wikipedia.org)
  • The garden cultivates about 4,000 taxa outdoors, including 50 species from Brandenburg that are threatened with extinction. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Early botanical collectors of this taxon include Ferdinand von Mueller and Frederick George Waterhouse. (wikipedia.org)
  • size
  • Leaf size ranges from 2 to 6 cm (1 to 2.5 in) in length, and 0.8-4 cm (0.31-1.57 in) in width. (wikipedia.org)
  • Exceptions: Where the nature of a taxon means that the plant is not likely ever to grow to any significant size it may be considered for labelling anyway. (cpbr.gov.au)
  • specific
  • Populations from the two lineages were phenotypically differentiated in leaf thickness, specific leaf area (SLA) and leaf nitrogen per unit mass (N mass ). (springer.com)
  • usually
  • These are usually replaced by simple leaves in mature adults, except in the case of R. asplenioides, the leaves of which are always compound. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leaves are usually crowded together at the upper end of branches, giving the canopy a thin, sparse appearance. (wikipedia.org)
  • seen
  • This pattern of leaf succession is seen as primitive in the Proteaceae. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the focus of most conservation authorities and ecologists is the 'legs and leaves' side of biology -the 'macrobiology' that can be seen with the naked eye. (scielo.org.za)
  • trees
  • the trees had thicker leaves, lower SLA and lower leaf N mass , consistent with general responses to low nutrient levels. (springer.com)
