So, this tree bears twice-compound leaves — sometimes referred to as pinnately decompound leaves. Even though a fair number of Bean Family trees possess such decompound leaves — the acacias and mimosas, for instance — the Bean Family is so huge, and most of its species bear either non-compound or once-compound leaves, that during the identification process, noticing this feature helps whittle down the possibilities a lot.

Within a few minutes, something new alblzia turn up at the forest’s edge, right beside the road. Guachapfle Albizia guachapele is little known in the English speaking world and bears no English name, it’s highly regarded in countries where it does occur. Several Bean Family species produce broad, flattish pods like that, but notice albiziw leaves. In Costa Rica Albizia guachapele, Cedrela odorata, Platymiscium pinnatum and Guaiacum sanctum are important plant species in both economic and ecological terms and their wood is precious and reported to be highly resistant material.

Identification normally is much easier with flowers than with fruits, but gjachapele were all we had, so I took the close-up of a large fruit cluster, shown below:. Moreover, the drooping feather-like structures bearing the paired leaflets don’t themselves attack to a woody branch, but rather to yet another slender, yellowish stem.


Growing fast and producing a spreading, rounded crown, it’s a favorite shade tree.

The flattish legumes bearing several beans in each pod, and with the legume’s edges thickened into wire-like seams, looked like certain species of the genus Albizia — for example, the Lebbeck Tree, Albizia lebbeckmuch planted in Yucatan’s towns and cities, shown at http: Information For Readers For Authors. Excerpts from Guachapepe Conrad’s Naturalist Newsletter. Findings include percentage of germination of seeds and contamination, induction of buds, rooting and growth of micro-cuttings of these four species.

Abstract In Costa Rica Albizia guachapele, Cedrela odorata, Platymiscium pinnatum and Guaiacum sanctum are important plant albzia in both economic and ecological terms and their wood is precious and reported to be highly resistant material. Plant Tissue Culture and Biotechnology18 2 The tree was inaccessible to pulling down leaves for a closer look but, below, a telephoto image shows a couple of points where the yellowish stems join:.

It’s a good-size tree often growing up to 20m tall algiziaexceptionally to 50m ft. In other words, each leaf is divided into segments, and then those segments are divided into further segments, in which case the ultimate blades are referred to as “pinnules,” and each pinnule arises from a stemlike “rachilla.

It was a fair-sized tree loaded with guachwpele mature legume-type fruits, as shown below:. Its wood is of good quality for construction, and the trees are much cut for that purpose.

The species guachapwle much sunlight, but thrives in a variety of well-drained soil conditions, from sandy loam to gravel and rocky.

The trunk consists of an unusually large amount of heartwood, which is a uniform yellowish-brown or guachapwle brown with a a golden luster, and traditionally has been used for making a golden dye. BoxHeredia DOI: This research has evaluated the in vitro micropropagation as a technology focused to conserve these species.

The small, oval blades lined up opposite one guacgapele along slender, yellowish stems are leaflets, not leaves. Vol 18 No 2 There at the southernmost extreme of the Yucatan Peninsula I was hoping to see plants and animals not encountered in the more arid northern part of the Peninsula.

Scanning the Yucatan’s listed Albizia species, a species turned up matching our roadside tree fairly well, and it was a good one, one not found in the Yucatan’s arid northern parts.
