Not illustrated. 1847 Excerpt: ...hi various ways; anthers 2-celled, turned outwards, sometimes anfractuosc. Pistil consisting of 5, or rarely 3, carpels, either distinct or cohering into a single ovary, often seated upon n columnlike axis. Styles equal in number to the carpels, distinct or united; ovules orthotropal or anatropal, erect if definite; sometimes indefinite. Fruit capsular, with 3 or 5 cells, or even drupaceous or berried, or composed of distinct follicles, opening by the ventral suture long before the ripening of the seeds. Seeds ovate or angular, sometimes winged or woolly; albumen oily or fleshy, rarely wanting; embryo straight or curved; cotyledons either fbliaceous, flat, and plaited, or rolled round the plumule, or else very thick, but this only in the seeds without albumen; radicle next the hilum, or at the opposite end of the seed, or even transverse. These have the columnar stamens of Mallowworts, and therein exhibit a near approach to that Order; but their anthers are 2-celled, and turned outwards. Sterculiads also lie on the borders of Byttneriads, from which they are readily distinguished by their columnar stamens not being partially sterile, and by the anthers being turned outwards. The Sub-Order Bombacere is remarkable for having a tough leathery calyx, which sometimes splits irregularly so as to hide the true manner in which the sepals are arranged. The fruit of Sterculia often exhibits beautiful illustrations of the real nature of that form of fruit which Botanists call the follicle, and helps to demonstrate tliat it, and hence all simple carpels, are formed of leaves, Fig. CCL. the sides of which arc inflexed, and the margins dilated into placenta; bearing ovules. In Firmiana platanifolia, in particular, the follicles burst and acquire the form of coriaceous le...
