I hope Chisocheton paniculatus


Chisocheton paniculatus et al – indiantreepix | Google Groups :
I was wondering if anyone on the list knew whether Chisocheton paniculatus, Dysoxylum binectariferum (Meliaceae) and Polyalhia simiarum (Anonaceae) have bisexual flowers? So that they sexes are not separate (dioecious)? I I did read somewhere that Chisocheton has polygamous flowers-what exactly do they mean by that? Hermaphroditic? I have also been told that these are mid to late successional species that are shade intolerant (except for Chisocheton). Any information on this including seed dormancy, persistence of seedlings and juveniles, height of seedlings, etc. would be very welcome.

I was wondering if anyone on the list knew if  Dysoxylum binectariferum, Chisocheton paniculatus and Polyalthia simiarum have bisexual/ unisexual or polygamous flowers. Are they effectively monoecious or dioecious?
Any information on this topic would be much appreciated. I had written in earlier but received no response. Any pointers as to where I might get this information (example who are the latest authorities on Meliaceae, have there been any revisions, when, where, etc)?

Please check for Nutmeg tree (Myristica species ???)

I think it is close to images at Chisocheton cumingianus subsp. balansae (C.DC.) Mabb.

Flowering images will further help.
