Jump to navigation Jump to search

Having organs, particularly filaments such as stamens, connected into one or more adelphiae, whether in the form of bunches or tubes, such as is commonly seen in families such as Malvaceae. Usage of the term is not consistent; some authors include closely bunched filaments, while others include only adelphiae in which filaments are connected at their bases at least. See for example, Sims: "...the filaments are so closely pressed that they have the appearance of being monadelphous...".[[[2]]] Compare derived terms such as monadelphous, having stamens growing in a single bunch or tube, for example in Hibiscus, and diadelphous growing in two bunches.adherentSlightly united to an organ of another kind, usually to a part of another whorl, e.g. a sepal connected to a petal.Contrast adnate.
