PLANT BINGO! Kathleen Eagle

All but the Silique photo are my own photos.


  1. Nice job! Thanks for actually dissecting the flowers and showing the features! The inferior ovary is well exemplified by the rose. The diadelphous stamens are restricted to Fabaceae (maybe a few others), here we have a fusion of filaments into two pairs. When there are two unequal pairs (but no fusion) it is referred to as didynamous as seen in Lamiaceae and other families. I believe your image is showing didynamous stamen arrangement.

    thanks for the clarification on the diadelphous vs. didynamous stamen arrangement. I am now discovering that as I do the dissections project! Helps to actually see things up close.
