Stomatal density, index and operating stomatal conductance measurements: Stomatal features were assessed on both abaxial (lower) and adaxial
(upper) leaf surfaces.
Areas of the tissues were obtained as follows: the adaxial
surface of the epidermis, the abaxial surface of the epidermis, the chlorophyll parenchyma, the sum of the phloem areas, the average phloem area in one vascular bundle, the sum of the areas of the vascular bundle sheaths, the sum of the areas of the vascular bundles, the sum of the areas of the xylem, the average xylem area in one vascular bundle, the sum of the area of fibers, the average fiber area in one vascular bundle, and the whole leaf area captured in the image using square micrometers as the measurement unit.
In affinity with Passiflora pardifolia Vanderplank, differs mainly in possessing variegated leaves with adaxial
white--reddish strips, flowers with white-green biseriate corona, ovoid oblong ripe fruit with the lower end acute.
Five young and expanded leaflets were collected from the upper third of each plant and the number of epidermal glandular trichomes per cm2 was evaluated on the abaxial and adaxial
Tronco esverdeado com estrias alvas, base reta, ramos sem embira; raque 40-43 cm compr., foliolos 33-30 x 17-16 cm, nao articulados, face adaxial
estrigosa, face abaxial pubescente, venacao craspedodroma 32.
Other examples that undergo modifications in the aforementioned conditions are the greater thickness of the cuticle on the adaxial
face and numerous trichomes on the abaxial side (ESPOSITO-POLESI et al., 2011).
Regarding the position of the leaf galls, these developed on the abaxial surface (35.71%), the adaxial
surface (28.57%) or both (35.71%).
Pattern 2--projection on the adaxial
face and abaxially round and protruding (Fig.
Hojas opuestas, peciolos de 1-2 cm de largo, laminas de 8-14 x 2-4 cm, angosto ovadas o elipticas, apice agudo, base aguda, margen entero, a veces serrado hacia el apice, cartaceas, cara adaxial
glabra o puberula, cara abaxial densamente hispida, principalmente sobre los nervios, excepcionalmente glabras o ligeramente pilosas, venacion pinnatifida o a veces reticulada, muchas veces las venas secundarias convergen en venas marginales, con un par de glandulas en la base de la lamina.
All leaves were scanned from adaxial
and abaxial surfaces.
