Direct sampling technique of bees on Vriesea philippocoburgii (Bromeliaceae, Tillandsioideae) flowers
Tania Mara Guerra,Afonso Inácio Orth
Biotemas , 2004,
Abstract: In our study on Vriesea philippocoburgii Wawra pollination, due to the small proportion of flowers in anthesis on a single day and the damage caused to inflorescences when netting directly on flowers, we used the direct sampling technique (DST) of bees on flowers. This technique was applied to 40 flowering plants and resulted in the capture of 160 specimens, belonging to nine genera of Apoidea and separated into 19 morph species. As DST maintains the integrity of flowers for later Bees’ visits, it can enhance the survey’s performance, constituting an alternative methodology for the collection of bees visiting flowering plants.

Asian Journal of Plant Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Leaf extracts of two species of bromeliads (Vriesea platynema and Dyckia distachya) differing in their phenotype were investigated in this study. Physiological and biochemical changes combined with the photosynthetic behavior were investigated. Dyckia distachya showed superiority in chlorophylls, carotenoids and total carbohydrates. Vriesea platynema showed higher starch content, light and CO2 flow curves following a quadratic model. We find out that Dyckia distachya has an efficient mechanism for surviving adverse environmental factors.

Abstract: aiming to contribute to the better understanding of the wild harvesting participation in the context of the bromeliads trade, the results from a study focused on: a) identifying and to characterizing the bromeliads wild harvesters (formally and not formally registered) in the state of the paraná; b) identifying and characterizing the harvesting methodologies, preparation and trade routes, and c) surveying the harvesters opinion on the facilities and difficulties of bromeliads wild harvesting are presented. the bromeliads wild harvesting was detected in 12 municipalities at parana state, involving 31 harvester families, most of them concentrated at the coastal zone (n=10) and ortigueira mun. (7). two basic harvester types were identified: resident and opportunist with outstanding differences between them especially related to volume and forms of extraction. a total of 21 bromeliads species were identified as submitted to wild harvesting, being the more frequently collected: vriesea incurvata gaudich. (cited by 90% of the interviewed harvesters), nidularium innocentii lem. (77%), vriesea platynema gaudich. (67%), tillandsia stricta sol. ex ker gawl. (55%) and vriesea carinata wawra (55%).

Abstract: this study aims to give an overall view of fruit structure in bromeliaceae, since these studies are extremely scarce in this family, showing the morphology, anatomy and ontogeny of fruits of six species belonging to six different genera, representing three subfamilies. all species studied have a tricarpellary and trilocular ovary, with an obturator covering the placental region. dyckia maritima, pitcairnia flammea, tillandsia aeranthos and vriesea carinata have capsular fruits (septicidal or biscidal), characterized mainly by the presence of macrosclereids in the exocarp or endocarp, fibers in the ventral region of the carpels, six dehiscence lines and three vascular bundles in each carpel. aechmea calyculata and billbergia nutans have fruits classified as berries, presenting exocarp and hypodermis as mechanical layers and many vascular bundles in each carpel. many useful characters for taxonomy of bromeliaceae were revealed, so fruits are excellent tools for delimitation of genera and subfamilies. in relation to bromeliaceae capsules, macrosclereids are conspicuous structures of the pericarp and fruit anatomy is greatly related to dehiscence type. the u-shaped cell wall thickenings are a very common character in this family and can be identified as structures also occurring in monocot fruits.

Abstract: a total of twenty different extracts from six brazilian bromeliaceae species was screened for antioxidant activity by assessment of their capacity to scavenge the dpph radical. in a general way, the polar rhizome extracts from bromeliaceae representatives showed better antioxidant results than the extracts from leaves and fruits of the same species. the best results were found for the rhizome extracts of vriesea procera (mart. ex schult.f.) wittm. and neoregelia cruenta (graham) l.b. sm. crude methanol extract of ananas bracteatus (lindl.) schult. & schult. f. leaf had a significant antiradical activity among the leaves extracts assessed its purification afforded four metabolites: 2-o-feruloyl glyceride, 2-o-p-coumaroyl glyceride, 5,7,4'-trihydroxy-3,3',5'-trimethoxyflavone and 3-o-β-d-glucopyranosyl sitosterol.

Abstract: micropropagation studies were carried out using the seeds for establishing an in vitro culture of vriesea gigantea and vriesea philippocoburgii. germination rate of v. gigantea was higher than of v. philippocoburgii. plantlets of v. philippocoburgii gave rise to many adventitious shoots when cultivated in knudson basal medium. in contrast, for v. gigantea, a higher salts-concentration was needed, so that the number of shoots was increased by murashige and skoog medium. addition of activated charcoal and naphthaleneacetic acid in regeneration medium allowed the growth of shoots and the formation of roots, confirming the success of in vitro culture. the differences in expression of the genotypes reinforce the need of more research in order to set up the conditions that could offer the best response of the specific tissues.

Abstract: bromeliaceae is a morphologically distinctive and ecologically diverse family originating in the new world. three centers of diversity, 58 genera, and about 3,140 bromeliad species are currently recognized. we compiled all of the studies related to the reproductive biology, genetic diversity, and population structure of the bromeliaceae, and discuss the evolution and conservation of this family. bromeliads are preferentially pollinated by vertebrates and show marked variation in breeding systems, from predominant inbreeding to predominant outcrossing, as well as constancy in chromosome number (2n = 2x = 50). autogamous or mixed mating system bromeliads have a high inbreeding coefficient (fis), while outcrossing species show low fis. the degree of differentiation among populations (fst) of species ranges from 0.043 to 0.961, which can be influenced by pollen and seed dispersal effects, clonal growth, gene flow rates, and connectivity among populations. the evolutionary history of the bromeliaceae is poorly known, although some studies have indicated that the family arose in the guayana shield roughly 100 mya. we believe that genetic, cytogenetic, and reproductive data will be essential for diagnosing species status and for assisting conservation programs.

Abstract: the present study reports chromosome numbers of 17 species of bromeliaceae, belonging to the genera encholirium, bromelia, orthophytum, hohenbergia, billbergia, neoglaziovia, aechmea, cryptanthus and ananas. most species present 2n = 50, however, bromelia laciniosa, orthophytum burle-marxii and o. maracasense are polyploids with 2n = 150, 2n = 100 and 2n = 150, respectively, while for cryptanthus bahianus, 2n = 34 + 1-4b. b chromosomes were observed in bromelia plumieri and hohenbergia aff. utriculosa. the chromosome number of all species was determined for the first time, except for billbergia chlorosticta and cryptanthus bahianus. our data supports the hypothesis of a basic number of x = 25 for the bromeliaceae family and decreasing aneuploidy in the genus cryptanthus.
