Siliqua

 

(1) An ancient Roman unit of weight or measure equal to 1/728 of a libra (327.45 g) or one-sixth of a scripulum (0.19g).

(2) A Roman and Byzantine silver coin. First issued in A.D. 323, it was equal to 1/24 of a gold solidus. During the fifth and sixth centuries it was used as the basic monetary unit of the Byzantine Empire. With the fall of the Byzantine Empire the sili-qua went out of use.

Furthermore, the occurrence of frost in the reproductive period could also have contributed to the homogenization of the AIRS, due to both abortion and lesions of siliques larger than 4cm in length, which characterizes damages by freezing, as a consequence of frost.
2014), who observed higher AIRS and higher dry matter siliques in Hyola 61 compared to Hyola 432 hybrid.
However, at Guarani das Missoes (Hyola 61), the free visitation and xenogamy treatments resulted in higher production of seeds per silique (see Table 1), as has previously been observed for the Hyola 432 cultivar, to which free visitation conditions were shown to increase the numbers of seeds present in the siliques (Rosa et al.
Fruit dehiscent siliques, linear, terete, unsegmented; valves with a prominent midvein, with obscure to distinct lateral veins, glabrous or rarely sparsely pubescent, smooth or rarely torulose; replum rounded; septum complete, veinless; style obsolete or distinct and to 5 mm long; stigma capitate, entire or 2-lobed, usually considerably wider than style.
Although the basic peroxidase isoenzyme has been previously reported in Arabidopsis leaves, this paper is the first report of such an isoenzyme in roots, flowers, stems, and immature siliques.
In Arabidopsis, a tiny, pod-like structure called a silique fulfils this role.
Parameters defining yield components were number of branches per plant siliques per plant seeds per silique and 1000-seed weight.
The number of siliques per plant was significantly influenced by paclobutrazol application whereas the seed number per silique and the 1000-seed- weight were less responsive to paclobutrazol treatment.
Number of grains per spike and number of seeds per silique was counted manually from each plot by taking 10 spikes of wheat and 10 siliques of canola selected randomly from each plot and then their averages were calculated.
Surviving plants undergo rapid growth in spring, bloom on elongated racemes 60-120 cm tall in May, produce seeds in linear siliques in mid to late summer, and subsequently die (Cavers et al.
Reproductive stages like inflorescence raceme length, number of branches of inflorescence raceme and number of siliques per plant were enhanced due to presence of Cd in the soil.
