The subgenera are chiefly distinguished by the following criteria (Richardson 1998): Subgenus Pinus L., also called the hard pines. It is a large tree up to 28-55 m in height with a trunk diameter reaching up to 2 m, the cones are ovoid conic and usually open up to 20 cm to release the seeds1. The sections and subsections presented here are mainly those of Gernandt et al. . Pine, pinyon [English], pinheiro [Portugese], pino, piñon [Spanish], pino [Italian], pin, pignon [French], pijn, den [Dutch], Kiefer [German], fyr [Danish, Norwegian], tall [Swedish], mänty [Finnish], sosna [Russian], bor, mura [Bulgarian], bora, molike [Serbo-croat], peuke, pitys [Greek], çam [Turkish], chir, kail [Hindi], thong [Vietnamese], æ¾å± matsu [Japanese], æ¾å± song shu [Chinese]. Several of the Asian pines are extremely rare in the wild, to the extent that urgent ex situ conservation action is required. (2009) for discussion of some of the ongoing evolutionary processes producing this complexity. There are currently no active references in this article. Sci. Keywords: Pinus roxburghii,cytotoxicity, Pharma-cological activities,phytochemical constituents Introduction The Pinus roxburghii Sarg (Pinaceae) is commonly known as chir pine. 2. Keywords: Pinus roxburghii,cytotoxicity, Pharma-cological activities,phytochemical constituents Introduction The Pinus roxburghii Sarg (Pinaceae) is commonly known as chir pine. Publ. Pines are subject to many pests and diseases, although these are most problematic in forestry situations, and horticultural specimens are less likely to be affected. They were the first timber resource exploited in much of North America. The needles are the most recognizable. Syn: Apinus Necker; Strobus Opiz; Caryopitys Small; Ducampopinus A. Cheval. 2013). 1980). 1976. Pine foliage is of four types: cotyledons, primary leaves, cataphylls and needles. 1980. The leaf-bearing shoots of each season are always to a greater or less extent naked at the base, being furnished there with 'scale-leaves' only – small, thin, membranous bodies, often fringed, and usually falling away quickly. Earle]. Perry (1991), an invaluable reference for the pines of Mexico and Central America. Download Free PDF. Analysis of genetic relationships of Central American and Mexican pines using RAPD markers that distinguish species. P. patula Schiede ex Schlechtendal et Chamisso var. comm. Ages of over 1000 years have been encountered in P. albicaulis, P. aristata, P. balfouriana, P. flexilis, and P. longaeva, all species native to western North America. Use of simultaneous analyses to guide fossilâbased calibrations of Pinaceae phylogeny. Recommended citation'Pinus' from the website Trees and Shrubs Online (treesandshrubsonline.org/articles/pinus/). Leaves dimorphic, spirally arranged; foliage leaves (needles) (1)2-5(6) per fascicle, persisting 2-12 or more years, terete or ± 2-3-angled and rounded on abaxial surface, sessile, sheathed at base by 12-15 overlapping scale leaves, these (at least firmer basal ones) persisting for life of fascicle or shed after first season; resin canals mostly 2 or more (rarely 0-1; max. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 11(1):95-109. Pine nuts as aphrodisiacs. It has been attempted at Tregrehan but was killed by cold there (T. Hudson, pers. It is almost entirely restricted to the northern hemisphere, crossing the equator only in Sumatra (P. merkusii). brutia thriving in challenging conditions, Alibey Island, Turkey (August 2019). Although the bulk of the depositions occurred earlier in 1970, when growing degree days were used as the clock, the 2 years were similar.The results provide quantitative data to complement the histologic emphasis of previous studies. Geol. 169(8):1086â1099. Each of these dwarf shoots bears five needles, as do van Hoey Smith. You should also try to visit the "hot spots" for the genus; the principal ones are Mexico, California, and the southeast United States. Another good method to identify a Pine is by its foliage. Cone scales lack a sealing band; seed wing is articulate to strongly adnate. Subsection Pinaster: Mediterreanean and western Himalaya. Where the leaves are in bundles of two the transverse section of each is semicircular, in the bundles of three to five they are three-sided. Some species of this genus include, Pinus roxburghii, P. wallichiana, P. gerardiana and P. insularis. Volume 1 of the Flora of North America (Kral 1993) offers the following advice to those attempting to identify pine specimens: Native to all continents and some oceanic islands of the northern hemisphere, chiefly in boreal, temperate, or mountainous tropical regions; reaching its southernmost distribution shortly below the Equator in southeast Asia (Sumatra; P. merkusii). Cotyledons are the first leaves produced when the plant emerges from the seeds. As already mentioned, they are also potentially very large trees, for which few gardens would have sufficient space. A guide to the infrageneric classification of Pinus, Europe, Asia (two species in North America), Fascicle sheath persistent (deciduous in P. leiophylla, P. lumholtzii), Leaves in fascicles of two to five (or more), Seed wings articulate (rarely weakly adnate), Leaves in fascicles of three, partially united on ventral surfaces, Fascicle sheath semi-deciduous, leaving a basal rosette (deciduous in P. pinceana), Section Quinquefolius (e.g. Pinus patula Schiede ex Schlectendahl et Chamisso 1831 Common names Mexican weeping pine, spreading-leaved pine, patula pine; pino patula, pino chino, pino triste [Spanish] (Wormald 1975). Although the bulk of the depositions occurred earlier in 1970, when growing degree days were used as the clock, the 2 years were similar.The results provide quantitative data to complement the histologic emphasis of previous studies. Male cone: It is shortly stalked and consists of an elongated central axis, bearing a number of small spirally arranged and closely fitted scale-like microsporophylls. Planted as a forestry species, it has become invasive in Africa, and it has no advantages as an ornamental tree, within or outside its native range (Gilman & Watson 1994b). The foliage shoots are very small and comprise a bundle (fascicle) of secondary leaves with a persistent or deciduous sheath at the base; in lay terms they are the familiar clusters of ‘pine needles’. It can break into small or large plates, form deep, longitudinal fissures, or peel continuously creating a mosaic pattern. Can he who has discovered only some of the values of whalebone and whale oil be said to have discovered the true use of the whale? Many of the species described here are from Mexico and further south in Central America, where the diversity of pines is at its highest. Examples of the type include Pinus sylvestris, P. mugo, P. densiflora and P. contorta. 3. Fascicles have 1-5 needles, stomata are all or mostly on inner faces, resin ducts are medial or external; the fascicle sheath is deciduous except in P. nelsonii, and the fascicle bases have non-decurrent pulvini. (2005), and HernÃ¡ndez-LeÃ³n et al. Examples include white pines such as P. strobus and P. armandii, and many pines in subsections Ponderosae (in the new world) and Pinaster (in the old), such as P. ponderosa, P. coulteri, P. montezumae, P. pinaster, P. brutia, and P. canariensis. Exposed wood was charred during ground fires reinstated as a conservation practice, after turpentine production ceased [C.J. Growth and development of the shoot of Pinus luchuensis growing in Okinawa were investigated. The science of dendrochronology originated with observations of Pinus ponderosa rings by astronomer Andrew Ellicott Douglass during travels in northern Arizona in 1904. Transfusion tissue, a modified vascular tissue is present in ... Cataphylls are. Its dwarf shoot There are also groups within some the subsections that appear to be monophyletic (as noted in the table above). Morphology and anatomy of long shoot leaves were described in detail in Dörken et al. It is related to P. strobiformis, with which it has been confused (Businský 2008). The studies cited above have resulted in several transfers between sections and subsections, most notably the lace-bark pines from section Parrya (to which they are closer in morphology) to section Quinquefolius (to which they are closer in genetics). The functions of cataphyll… subgenus Pinus, section Trifoliae (Duhamel), subsection Australes (Loudon). Fascicles persist for 2–12 years or more and develop in the axils of cataphylls (see below). 1999). The habit of pines is extremely variable, plants ranging from large, monopodial trees to small, multistemmed shrubs, although environmental factors account for some of this variation. Each of the sections appears to be monophyletic, with very ancient divisions drawn between the subsections. The branches develop spirally in the axil of scale leaves present on the upper part of the stem, giving the tree a pyramid-like or pagoda-like appearance (Fig. comm. . 2. Branching shoots generally produce a single flush of growth each season, ending with a winter bud. For most of these popular ornamental species, various cultivars have been developed to emphasize differences in growth form and foliage. In the past, crude pine resin had been used in sailing vessels as packing material and for waterproofing" (Moussouris and Regato 1999). External Morphology of Pinus: 1. B, A. Liston, and S. H. Strauss. Occupying all northern continents, the Pinus genus is versatile and able to adapt to almost any climate. Leyden, 1984. The reason is that many species bear similar bark, and the bark characters change with the age of the tree. On chalky soils P. nigra, P. brutia, P. halepensis, P. pinea and others succeed very well. http://www.santesson.com/aphrodis/pine.htm, accessed 2002.04.24, now defunct. Several attempts have been made to divide it into a number of smaller genera (including Strobus Opiz, Caryopitys Small and Ducampopinus A. For information about how you could sponsor this page, see How You Can Help, Article from Bean's Trees and Shrubs Hardy in the British Isles. 2007) grew one tree to 2 m before it succumbed to Armillaria. Branches usually in pseudowhorls; shoots dimorphic with long shoots and dwarf shoots; dwarf shoots borne in close spirals from axils of scaly bracts and bearing fascicles of leaves (needles). Tom Hudson collected seed at 1800 m in Thailand, but the resultant plants were tender even in the favourable conditions of Tregrehan. Lovett Pinetum, a good source of information on many topics in pine biology. Range maps have been published for the genus, many of its subsections and most of its species by Critchfield and Little (1966). ISBN 0-521-55176-5. Little and Critchfield (1969), which established a taxonomic benchmark for the species. Many species remain unintroduced, or have been unsuccessfully introduced, and await the attentions of collectors. . While there are smaller and even shrubby species, however, the majority of pines are large trees, suitable only for larger spaces. Other specimens belong to P. quinquefolia Hollick and Jeffrey (1909). a shower bath using sulfurous water, especially as part of a curative therapy. In cultivation, however, it can become a large tree with a straight trunk of 30 m or more. & Fernald, which has a wide distribution in western Mexico. Biodiversity of Pinus (Pinaceae) in Mexico: speciation and paleo-endemism. On fern petioles/stipes there are often scale-like organs I've seen called scales (though they are not very scale-like). "Pine resin flows on the external surface of a tree after a wound is inflicted to form a protective coat that seals the wound to pathogenic microorganisms and prevents loss of sap. At the base of each bundle is a sheath, whose varying length and duration give very useful indications of the identity of the species. Taxonomic notes. Chromosomal Localization of 5S and 18S rDNA in Five Species of Subgenus Strobus and their Implications for Genome Evolution of Pinus. Critchfield, W. B. Botanical Journal of the Linnaean Society 121:365-384. Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden 73:565-641. Wu, J. K., V. Krutovskii, and S. H. Strauss. Douglass used tree rings to date the construction of Anasazi ruins in the American Southwest, many workers have used scores of different pines to reconstruct past variations in climate, geochronologists have used pines to determine changes in the rate of atmospheric carbon-14 production over the past 7,000 years, and the rings of pines have been used to address a wide spectrum of other technical problems; for example, the tree-ring pattern in a pine board proved to be a crucial piece of evidence helping to convict the killer of the kidnapped Lindberg baby in 1923 (before O.J. Particularly good collections of pines can be found in the holdings of Kew, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (especially at Benmore), Bedgebury National Pinetum, and the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, where there is a National Plant Collection of Pinus. Subsection Gerardianae: China and the Himalaya, Section Parrya: Western United States and Mexico, Subsection Cembroides: Western United States and Mexico Forest Genetics Workshop. Pine foliage is of four types: cotyledons, primary leaves, cataphylls and needles. Genus: Pinus Linnaeus Pinus triphylla Hollick et Jeffrey (1909). Good drainage is also essential for the majority of species. 3. Gar Rothwell. Cai, Qing, Daming Zhang, Zhan-Lin Liu and Xiao-Ru Wang. Each of the subgenera has been treated as a genus in its own right, and other subgenera have been proposed, but the great majority of morphological evidence, terpene data, and, more recently, molecular phylogenetic data have all firmly established the species composition and monophyletic origin of these two subgenera and the major sections within them. At the specific level, some conifer specialists perceive similarities across a range of variation, while others detect differences.
