Figure 11

Female inflorescences of Gurania insolita take different forms, depending on the age of the stem that produced them. Old leafless woody stems produce cauliflorous inflorescences, with tightly-packed flowers, on a short peduncle. The photo on the right shows a longer, more flexible inflorescence that was produced by a young leafy stem. These inflorescences have leafy bracts with a red tint. The fruits in this species have bold white stripes and spots.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
