Example sentences for: disciform

How can you use “disciform” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The occasional appearance of disciform capitula in S. bigelowii might be explained by introgression of genes or alleles from A. filfolia that control ray expression, a phenomenon observed in discoid Senecio squallidus and radiate S. vulgaris in Europe [ 67 ] . While this is speculative, it is consistent with hypotheses that hybridization and introgression are widespread in sect.

  • Tridentatae [ 68 ] , and may explain occasional heterogamous disciform capitula in S. bigelowii [ 34 35 ] . However, there may be many genetic and developmental mechanisms that affect ray formation and control floret fertility [ 69 70 ] .

  • However, these two genera were removed from Artemisia s.l ., and on the basis of spiny pollen have been considered transitional between the Artemisia -group and four radiate genera: Tridactylina Arctanthemum, Brachanthemum, and Dendranthema . Our ITS phylogeny places disciform Ajania sister to radiate Arctanthemum derived from within the Arctanthemum-Dendranthema clade, rather than sister to the Artemisia -group.

  • Kaschgaria was removed by Poljakov from Artemisia s.l . on the basis of stellate corolla hairs, and was considered more closely related to Seriphidium than Artemisia s.s ., even though it is disciform rather than discoid [ 2 ] . Kaschgaria possesses spineless pollen [ 2 37 ] . Therefore, placement of Kaschgaria and Elachanthemum outside of the Artemisia -group is intriguing because if these placements remain robust, wind-pollination may have arisen more than once in the tribe, or insect-pollination may be secondarily derived within Subtribe Artemisiinae in the radiate genera (clade 3 of Fig.

  • In addition, plants with discoid capitula are considered homogamous since all florets are of one sexual form (perfect-bisexual disk florets), and plants with disciform capitula are considered heterogamous with two or more sexual forms ( i.e., pistillate rays and perfect disks, or pistillate rays and staminate disks).
