#Magnolia is an ancient genus. Appearing before bees did, the flowers are theorized to have evolved to encourage #pollination by beetles. To avoid damage from pollinating beetles, the #carpels of Magnolia flowers are extremely tough. Fossilized specimens of M. acuminata have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the #Magnoliaceae date to 95 million years ago. Another aspect of Magnolia considered to represent an ancestral state is that the flower bud is enclosed in a #bract rather than in sepals; the perianth parts are undifferentiated and called #tepals rather than distinct sepals and petals. Magnolia shares the tepal characteristic with several other flowering plants near the base of the flowering plant lineage such as #Amborella and #Nymphaea (as well as with many more recently derived plants such as Lilium).
Good morning, good people! Yes, I'm obsessed with our tree while she's in bloom. Can you blame me?! 🤷‍♀️💚 . . #nofilter #nofilters #nofilternecessary #magnolia #magnolias #magnoliatree #magnoliablossom #magnoliabud #inbloom #blooming #blossoming #petals #tepals #carpels #stamens
Did you know? Magnolia is an ancient genus. Appearing before bees did, the flowers are theorized to have evolved to encourage pollination by beetles. To avoid damage from pollinating beetles, the carpels of Magnolia flowers are extremely tough. Magnolia is a large genus of about 210 flowering plant species in the subfamily Magnoliodea  of the family  Magnoliaceae. It is named after French botanist Pierre Magnol. #magnoliatree #magnolia #ancient #pollinator #carpels #notpetals #naturelovers #biology #taxonomy
Do you have the stamen to get up close and personal. I know I did finish strong on my pun. But the pollen is cool and those green and pink center pods makes me think of Alien pods. watch your face. ❇️ 🎴 Week 2 of 7 in the podiatry series is love.

Always fascinated by the Nigella flower. This one has beautiful pale blue petals. I am surprised to see it at the farm so early in the year. The self-seeding means that there should be bigger and bigger patches of them, as long as the soil is damp enough. #nigella #ranunculaceae #flower #perianth #carpels #permaculture #farm #farmslimane #biodiversity #sustainability #marrakech #morocco @artslimane
The identity of the four characteristic whorls of typical eudicots, namely, #sepals , #petals , #stamens , and #carpels , is specified by the overlapping action of homeotic genes, whose single and combined contributions have been described in the ABCDE model. According to this model, organ identity during flower development is controlled by five classes of floral homeotic genes providing overlapping floral homeotic functions: A, B, C, D, and E. A+E genes specify sepals, A+B+E specify petals, B+C+E specify stamens, C+E specify carpels, and C+D+E specify ovules.

With Storm Gareth on the way, we thought our Magnolia campbellii deserves to grace our instagram screens one last time before the flowers blow away. Pop in soon before its too late! Introduced by plant hunter George Forrest in 1924, this showstopper of a tree was donated to us by @kilmokea_heritage_gardens & was planted back in 1968. #magnolia #tepals #stamens #carpels #march #pink #petals #magnolia #mollicomata #stormgareth #windy #statusyellow #nofilter #yunnan #georgeforrest #campbellii 🌸
Lemon sorbet recipe below 🍋 👇 👇 👇 👇 👇 👇 👇 👇 👇 . . . . . why oh why would I have a sorbet recipe. Like seriously. U can Stop scrolling now. . . . . Ok so you still scrolling. . . Oh you wanted the lemon bowls method. So Why you don't say Shame . . . so you take 6 lemons or 7 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋 Jeez no need to be technical . Remove them insides , #organs #carpels #mesocarp #endocarp What not. I used a knife and an icecream scoop . don't cut yourself! Unless you suicidal . Even so don't cut yourself. Cos then you will have #red lemons and das not good. . . Leave them empty lemons in the freezer while you head to @woolies to purchase their granadilla sorbet (yes granadilla who's gonna know it's not lemon ..hello ,yellow ) . . Oh ya I forgot to mention ..so you slice abit of the top of the lemon which will be the lid of the bowls. . What do you mean how many cms should you cut ?! Do I look like a meticulous person. . . . Cut it 16 mm from the top. Not more ,not less !! Precision is key. Use a ruler or tape measure And don't say now why would I have a tape measure in my house . . . . #thatsallfolks . . . #seriouslybye . . . #photooftheday #igdaily #igers #picoftheday #instapic #igfood #instagood #bestoftheday #yellow #instadaily #lemon #life
‘Hepatica’ is a genus that many botanists now consider it to be part of the larger ‘Anemone’ genus. This is round-lobed hepatica (now botanically Anemone americana), a woodland wildflower from eastern North America. They’re just coming into bloom on Emory’s Lullwater preserve. The green bits in the centre of this flower are carpels, females reproductive organs. Note how the carpels are free (not fused to one another) and each has a tiny, curled pistil at the end. These are hallmarks of the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae. The flowers of this family are otherwise puzzlingly varied; buttercups, larkspurs, columbines, monkshood and ranunculus are all in Ranunculaceae. _ #ranunculaceae #hepatica #anemone #columbine #larkspur #ranunculus #buttercup #monkshood #botany #morphology #carpels #flowerparts #spring #bloom #woodland #wildflowers #nativeplants #nature

Just another late night in the lab, trying to beat the clock, but still leaving close to 10pm 3days a week for now. At least I have these little beauties to keep me company ☺️ Capsella bursa-pastoris. Today I noticed a curiousity on some of my plants: half formed silicles such that one half of the heart-shaped seed pod is missing (close-up shown in 2nd picture). Very interesting! Keeping track of them, of course. Wondering what might cause this to happen. Only 1 carpel is manifested, so perhaps it is simply lack of pollination to the 2nd carpel. But multiple pollination events need to occur to each carpel because of the many seeds found in each. So... a defective carpel perhaps? Or stress-related? Jury is still out, but fun to think about. Any thoughts, fellow botanists? . . . #botany #iamabotanist #ecologist #evolutionary #biologist #curiosities #plantscience #urbanplants #brassicaceae #shepherdspurse #labtrials #silicle #seedpods #stress #studies #counting #carpels #nofilter
What is botany? ‘Historically this field was regarded as key to decoding the very purpose of life. Today more than ever, a deeper understanding of nature is vital to Earth’s shared future.’ Start your journey into the scientific and often breathtaking study of plants and flowers by looking just that little bit closer ... read more at www.abotanicalworld.com/whatisbotany . . #whatisbotany #botanyforbeginners #studyofplantsandflowers #plantscience #botany #plants #flowers #tulip #tulipa #liliaceae #petals #sepals #stamens #carpels #ovary #thebotanicalbible #collinsbotanicalbible #sonyapatelellis #theherbariumproject #abramsbooks #harpercollinsuk #williamcollins #abotanicalgirl #abotanicalworld
Medicine Boy - Lower (LP, 2018) #наслушал : очень мрачный, темный и атмосферный альбом, и это плюсы. если надо погрустить в наушниках по пути на работу, или погрузиться в транс - добро пожаловать. но не переживайте это не такой сэдкор, от которого хочется резать вены, это качественный взгляд южноафриканского дуэта на темный блюз олд америки. #наставил : 7 атмосферно мрачных баллов из 10 #medicineboy @medicine.boy #lower #lowerlp #bottomoftheblue #watergirl #carpels #yelloweyedradioblues #forthetimebeing #diamonds #hospitalfloors #onehundredbodies #lovelyheart #southafrica #dreampop #shoegaze #blues #sadcore #indierock #psychedelicrock #psychedelicpop #album2018 #music2018 #dark p.s. обложка огонек, как будто #веном вселился в цветы.
When the #skeleton is facing you, it is the anterior view. When it is not facing you it is the posterior view. In the #anterior view the bones labelled are the #cranium #clavicle #sternum #ribs #vertabralcolumn #illium #pubis #ischium #femur #patella #fibula #tibia #tarsels #metatarsels #phalanges In the #posterior view the bones labelled are the #scapula #numerous #ulna #radius #carpels #metacarpels #phalanges Within the vertebral column there a five sections which are #cervical #thoracic #lumbar #sacrum #coccyx a good way to remember the order is: Carlos Teves Likes Sugary Coke!
