SOUZA, Luiz Antonio de et al. Vegetative propagation in Piperaceae species. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 2009, vol.52, n.6, pp.1357-1361. ISSN 1678-4324.

Piperaceae species of forest remnants of Maringá, Paraná, Brazil present vegetative propagation through root or stem (stolon). This reproduction type was verified in Piper amalago L., P. arboreum Aublet, P. xylosteoides (Kunth) Steud., Peperomia parnassifolia Miq. and Ottonia martiana Miq. Root and stem branches of these species were analyzed anatomically. Results indicated that the vegetative propagation in Piperaceae should be studied in other forests. New and additional studies should be made if the structural variations were induced environmentally or fixed genetically.

Keywords : Piperaceae; vegetative reproduction; stolon; stem; root.
