Heterodichogamy in Ascarina lucida (Chloranthaceae).

Phil Garnock-Jones (Victoria Uniiversity of Wellington). Ascarina lucida (Chloranthaceae) is an endemic New Zealand wind-pollinated small tree. Its sexual system has been described variously, as dioecious, gynodioecious, or monoecious with strong protandry. Inflorescences are terminal thyrses of 2–3-flowered cymules. Flowers are unisexual and highly reduced: each male flower is a single anther with about 80,000 small …
