Tuberous organs in Utricularia, and new observations of sub-tuberous stolons on Utricularia radiata Small
Carniv. Pl. Newslett. 40(3):88-91
Published September 2011
The production of tubers is such an example—nearly twenty species of Utricularia are known to generate them. (Plant physiologists might argue whether all these structures are truly tubers in the technical sense.) The species that produce tubers are not particularly closely related to each other; Taylor (1989) notes that they occur in six separate sections (Aranella, Chelidon, Orchidioides, Phyllaria, Pleiochasia, Utricularia).
Keywords: observations: Texas, Utricularia radiata, Utricularia inflata; physiology: Utricularia radiata
