“Geranium; flowers 5-merous, stamens with filaments united at base;
fruit with elastic dehiscent schizocarps that curl on the beak.”*
“Fruits (schizocarps) of filaree (Erodium moschatum), a common and prolific
naturalized Mediterranean weed during the spring in southern California. Each fruit
is composed of five sections called carpels and a long, slender style column. Since
the seed-bearing carpels do not split open, the fruit is considered indehiscent. When
they begin to dry out, the mature carpels (each with its own slender style) separate
from each other. As the styles uncoil, the carpels are often forcibly ejected. Upon
landing on the ground, the free end of the style spirals around like the hand of a
clock, twisting the seed-bearing carpel deeper and deeper into the soil. Species of
Erodium are also called storksbill because of the long, beaklike style column on
the fruits.” From

Catkins are found in a few different
families. Above are two members of the
Moraceae (Mulberry) family.
                              Notice the male catkin –
                              it is similar to those that
                              you will dissect today.
                 Here is the pistillate
                 inflorescence that you will be
                 dissecting today.
