Crocus - web resources
« on: April 01, 2013, 05:50:56 PM »
It occurs to me that new readers here may not be aware that the Tony Goode's Crocus Pages are also available on the SRGC site :  http://www.srgc.org.uk/genera/index.php?log=crocus


I would also like  to draw your attention to "The Country of Crocus" the excellent 'blog' of İbrahim Sözen, a Turkish  Forumist  with a particular passion for Crocus   http://crocusmania.blogspot.co.uk/
 
( it is not only crocus that you will see in the blog, though! ;)  )

Yes, there is a link from the main page via the Content button drop-down menu



The Crocus Pages are  part of the archived site.

There is one other area from the Content Button that has an extra pop-out menu and that is for  the Blogs and Diaries

Crocus yaseminiae (Iridaceae) a new species from South Anatolia, Turkey

ABSTRACT
Article PHYTOTAXA ISSN 1179-3155 (print edition) ISSN 1179-3163 (online edition) Accepted by Lorenzo Peruzzi: 18 Oct. 2014; published: 10 Dec. 2014

Crocus yaseminiae is described as a new species from Alanya province in South Anatolia. A short literature history of the closely related taxon Crocus isauricus Siehe ex Bowles (≡ Crocus biflorus subsp. isauricus (Siehe ex Bowles) Mathew) is given together with a lectotypification of its name, and a discussion of the type specimen and locus classicus. Diagnostic characters were discussed of the taxa belonging to the "isauricus group" (C. biflorus subsp. isauricus, C. roseoviolaceus, C. mersinensis, C. taseliensis, and C. karamanensis). Fenugreek scented flowers are reported for the first time for the genus.

Flower bouquet variation in four species of Crocus ser. Verni (Iridaceae)

ABSTRACT
 Flowering plants employ a wide variety of signals, including scent, to attract pollinators. The aim of this work was to examine whether flower volatile compounds in four closely related Crocus species are linked to species divergence and to the current knowledge on their pollination syndromes. Fragrances of freshly opened flowers in Crocus etruscus, C. ilvensis, C. neglectus, and C. vernus, all belonging to ser. Verni, were analyzed using GC/MS analysis. The results are congruent with the knowledge about systematic relationships among taxa and the four species fall into two main fragrance types, based on the identity of their volatile compounds. In C. etruscus, C. ilvensis, and C. neglectus oxygenated monoterpenes (lilac aldehyde B and A) are the most represented, while C. vernus has a fragrance rich in monoterpene hydrocarbons (α-pinene and limonene). Our results point towards outcrossing mating strategies for C. etruscus, C. ilvensis, and C. neglectus, whose volatile compounds are known as pollinator attractants. This is congruent with their flower architecture, showing a style of variable height, often overtopping stamens. On the contrary, a self-pollination strategy was repeatedly suggested in literature for C. vernus, marked by flowers with style deeply inserted within the stamens and also by a completely different flower bouquet.
