Brazilian Flora Arecaceae Palms: Burret distinguished his new species by its feltoidea rachillae with seven series of triads, and by its longer fruit. To explore the possible uses that can be given to biomassthe following parameters will be evaluated, preliminarily [ 3 ]:.

AAU palm archive’ Image credit to Palmweb. Iriartea is a genus in the palm family Arecaceaenative to Central and South America. Animals as toucans, tapirs, monkeys, pigs and rodents eat the fruits. Catalytic deltoideaa hydrolysis treatment of the sample previously treated by hydrolysis was performed. The numerous pinnae are fan-shaped, and held in various planes.

The fruits are globose and green deltiodea. However, there are many exceptions in any population, and the character is physiological, and not of any taxo-nomic significance. This is considered a monotypic genus.

Developmental evidence helps resolve the evolutionary origins of anther appendages in Globba Zingiberaceae. Fruits dull bluish black, globose, ca. The best-known species — and probably the only one — is Iriartea deltoideawhich is found from Nicaraguasouth into Bolivia and a great portion of Western Amazonian basin. The soft central ground tissue is removed from the center of the stem, and base and apex fashioned into bow and stern.

The infrafoliar inflorescence is yellow or cream colored and comes out from a big green spathe with horn-like structure. Our findings contribute to an understanding of the factors that make I. The trunks are grey, smooth and sometimes are loaded with epiphytes bromeliads, orchids, ferns.

Such is the demand for these temporary canoes that many of the larger specimens of Iriartea have been felled in this area. Flora Neotropica Monograph Canoes last about two or three months.

Deckeria corneto, Ceroxylon deltoideum, Iriartea gigantea, Iriartea megalocarpa. It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Detail of the leaf Photograph by: Smithsonian Tropical research Institute. Published on the Internet at http: Where scarce, the palms are often claimed by people in forests. Inflorescence buds m long, downwards curved, resembling a bulls horn. This species is interpreted from the deltoidex, description, and other collections from at or near the type locality Iriarta et al. It will also be monitored for two years to see the evolution and behavior of the material and its probabilities of being classified as an element suitable for bioconstruction activities Figure 3.


The development of the investigation has begun with the palm chonta executing stages one and two in the following way:. The holotype of Iriartea deltoidea consists of five sheets with a seedling, section of leaf, and piece of rachilla with pistillate flowers.
