Transcript vol. 3, no. 7 Gay Austin april 1979 17 AUSTIN BOTANICAL j^ NOTGS ^ Some families of flowering plants are easy to recognize and one that is quite prominent in Austin during the spring is the legume family. This is the family to which bluebonnets, peas, beans, mequite trees, red bud trees, soybeans, wisteria and clover all belong. The familial relationship in this otherwise diverse group is most evident in the basic similarity of the flowers. The flowers, which are said to be "papilionaceous," are bilaterally symmetrical and have five petals: The "standard" which is usually puright and large; two "wings"; and the "keel" which consists of two petals fused together along one edge and which wraps around the stamens (ten of them) and the pistil. There is a good deal of variation between species in the relative positions of the keel and wings, but almost always the ovary at the base of the pistil looks like a tiny pea or bean. (Of course the ovary eventually develops into a pea or bean or something very similar.) This family is of extreme economic importance not only because it is an important food source but also because of the effects of the bacteria which inhabit nodules on the roots of the legumes. These bacteria take nitrogen (N2) out of the air and convert it into a form (N03) which will dissolve well in water. This essential nutrient is thus available in the soil to other plants. Legumes, therefore, are said to "rejuvenate" the soil in which they grow and are frequently planted in depleted fields to help rebuild the soil. Some members of the Leguminosae are poisonous and/or hallucinogenic. This family has traditionally been caDed the "Leguminosae" but during the past 25 years it has also come to be kno.wn as the "Fabaceae," a term which is more consistent with the nomenclature guidelines set forth in the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature.V SELL the NUKE Vote YES on Proposition 2 Vote NO on Propositions 1,3,&4 There is still a lot of work that needs to be done PLEASE HELP by volunteering some of your time to answering the phones/working in the office/distributing yard signs/or by working door-to-door in your neighbourhood Contact the Austin Citizens for Economical Energy at 474-9461 as soon as possible.
