The dehiscent cone distinguishes this group from the Cembrae.
From the latter it is also distinct in its dehiscent cone and in its seed.
Anthers erect, with short filaments, two-celled; dehiscent longitudinally.
Fruit 5-celled dehiscent pods, with many pendulous, winged seeds.
The Capsule, the dry and dehiscent fruit of any compound pistil.
In the Lariciones the cone is symmetrical, and dehiscent and deciduous at maturity, while the spring-shoot is uninodal.
Calyx not minute; pod colored, dehiscent; seeds enclosed in a pulpy aril.
This group combines the dehiscent cone of the Lariciones with the wood-anatomy of the serotinous Pines.
The order is easily distinguished by the hard, dry, woody texture of the leaves and the dehiscent fruits.
Pericarp woody, dehiscent at the tip by 2–4 valves; contains 1–4 seeds, slightly orbiculate, coriaceous.
dehiscence de·his·cence (dĭ-hĭs'əns)
A bursting open or splitting along natural or sutured lines.
