A teratological phenomenon found in a plant of Atriplex elegans subsp. thornberi (M. E. Jones) W. L. Wagner, from a wild population in Sonora, México, is described. Its flattened and expanded stem from the base to the terminal portion, its terminal bifurcation and coiled appearance are indicative of a fasciation. The phenomenon affects also the inflorescence.

    The floral syndrome of Zizyphus mauritiana Lamk. (Rhamnaceae) reflects its adaptation to insects. We examined the blossom visitor assemblage of Z. mauritiana in relation to plant density. Results indicate that flowers of this plant species are visited by 86 species of insects which consisted 32...
