Definition of bracteole in English:
A small bract, especially one on a floral stem.
- Segmented pedicels that bear mature fruiting bracteoles are present in Obione moneta, whereas bracteoles are strongly adherent to the stem in 0. leucoclada.
- The genera of Atripliceae, as the tribe is traditionally defined, have flowers that are usually unisexual and enclosed by well-developed bracteoles.
- Ontogenetic studies of the bracteoles in Chenopodiaceae could contribute to resolution of a robust phylogeny for the family.
