Plant height, number of bolls per plant, number of sympodial and monopodial branches markedly influenced by interactive effect of sowing dates (SD) and genotypes (G).
Leaves with petiole, 4-7(-9) cm long, sheathing the young shoots, petiolar margins membranaceous, translucid, extending through 2/3 of the petiole, glabrous or minutely pubescent, with lustrose appearance; leaf blades (13-)15-27(-45) cm long, 12-21(-26) cm wide, dimorphic through the sympodial axis, monopodial leaves ovate or widely ovate, cordate and slightly auriculate at the base, with the lobes almost symmetrical; sympodial leaves elliptic-ovate, cordate to deeply auriculate at the base, with the lobes asymmetrical, the bigger lobe half or completely overlapping the petiole; obtuse to shortly acuminate at the apex, ciliate at the margin, minutely pubescent in both surfaces; pinnately nerved, veins 4-8, inconspicuously punctate pellucid; membranaceous, with a matt appearance.

Character Evolution--Inflorescence Morphology: The cladistic analysis indicates that monopodial growth (character 1) is a synapomorphy of Thottea and the Aristolochioideae (Fig.
Epiphytes have two methods of growth - sympodial and monopodial.
Cacti vary in shape from the many pulvinate (cushion-forming) species of Copiapoa in the Atacama Desert (the drawing shows the cushion growth-form, a longitudinal section of a flower, and the taproot so typical of cacti) to monopodial arborescent forms such as the spectacular candelabro (Browningia candelabris) of the Andean slopes of the Tarapac Desert (Atacama), growing up to 16 ft (5 m) tall.
It has a monopodial trunk with tiers of first-order branches morphologically identical to the trunk and with lateral flower buds.
Mathematics and beauty IV: Computer graphics and wild monopodial tendril plant growth.
Before blooming, 10 plants were randomly selected from the central two rows in each plot and tagged to record the final plant height (cm), number of monopodial and sympodial branches, squares, flowers, opened bolls per plant, boll weight (g) and seed cotton yield (kg ha-1).
direct effect of boll weight on yield and its indirect positive effect through monopodial and sympodial branches which are also found in the current studies.
Its size is more similar to our specimens; however, it has a monopodial branching pattern in contrast to the ramisympodial branching present in the new species from Colombia (Funk 1955).
