characteristics are represented, among others, by the increased cuticle, larger vascular area, presence of numerous trichomes and fibers (MENEZES et al., 2006), as occurred for the species under study.
Structural and functional properties of trichomes of xeromorphic
On the contrary, plants of population No 3, have all signs of body xeromorphic
structures (strong development of cover tissue and presence of more wide clearance vessels of water conducting tissue).
Is leaf pubescence of Cape Proteaceae a xeromorphic
or radiation-protective trait?
angustifolia grows in arid or semi-arid regions, thus it is not surprising that it displays xeromorphic
Vegetation of the three points were similar, and consisted of xeromorphic
vegetation, with woody trees and shrubs scattered over grassland, sometimes forming a dense bush (Linsingen, Sonehara, Uhlmann, & Cervi, 2006).
The results were showed some typical xeromorphic
features in the stem and leaf structure, which are more strongly.
VI Stunted, xeromorphic
, with pneumatophores; Myrmecophytes spp.
The canopy layer is irregular in height, usually between 7 and 12 m, its cover is sparse (50-60%) and is considered a clear microphyll evergreen forest; the leaves are mainly xeromorphic
and mostly microphyllous.
The term "Caatinga" refers to the typical xeromorphic
vegetation of the semiarid Brazilian Northeast, which also includes areas of semi-deciduous and cloud forests, covering a total area of 770 442 [km.sup.2] (Coimbra-Filho and Camara, 1996; Marinho-Filho and Sazima, 1998).
