Translations for next Release

We have prepared a Google doc. Ale has added all the new Spanish translations. We will continue to add to this list as we go along.


Flower development stage (PO:0021004) and subclasses

Link to spreadsheet: gdoc


Current and revised definitions for flower development stages: Propose to remove the numbers in front of all the child terms to be consistent with other parts of the PSDS that have been revised. Could consider adding new relations such as:

  • Flower development stage (PO:0021004): A reproductive shoot system development stage (PO:0025530) that has as primary participant a flower (PO:0009046). [source: POC:curators]

Revised def'n: Flower development stage (PO:0021004): A reproductive shoot system development stage (PO:0025530) which begins with the onset of the flower meristem visible stage (PO:0007601) and ends after the post anthesis stage (PO:0007617).

  • 1 flower meristem visible stage (PO:0007601): Stage of flower development marked by the emergence of the floral meristem on the flank of the inflorescence meristem.
    • Revised def'n: flower meristem visible stage (PO:0007601): A flower development stage (PO:0007615) marked by the emergence of the flower meristem (PO:0000229) from a portion of meristem tissue (PO:0009013).

We agreed that it should not refer to the flank of the meristem, unless the flower is part of an inflorescence. We should add this in a comment to cover flowers that are part of an inflorescence. Decided to refer to the general parent term for the meristem. Discussed examples jackfruit and cacao, which apparently form fruits on the stem, but these are actually formed on short branches.

  • 2 flower meristem notched stage (PO:0007602):Stage of floral development that begins when the floral meristem becomes demarcated from the inflorescence meristem by a slight indentation. [source: POC:curators]

proposed that we rename the term to get rid of the 'notched' word in the term name. One way to do this would be to add a comment that states that the initiation of this stage is indicated by a slight indentation. Discussed "demarcated" vs "separated", need to explain what "notched" means, look in PATO. Is there still a notch if there is an individual flower determinate

Decided to refer to the floral structure primordium (PO:0025477): def'n: A primordium (PO:0025127) that is committed to the development of a plant structure that is part of a flower (PO:0009046), such as a floral organ (PO:0025395), gynoecium (PO:0009062), or anther (PO:0009066) and is part of a reproductive shoot apex (PO:0025222). [source: POC:curators]. Needs to be revised to meet the new floral organ definition. Is_a

Ale will send additional pictures of flower development to help with the definitions

proposed new name and def'n:floral organ primordium stage (PO:0007602): A flower development stage (PO:0007615) that begins when the flower meristem (PO:0000229) transitions into a floral organ primordium (PO:0025477).

add a comment that the floral organ primordia are demarcated by indentations at this stage.

So when does it end? This is actually a later stage than what was originally intended


    • 4 anthesis stage (PO:0007616): The phase of a flower when pollen is presented and/or the stigma is receptive. [source: APweb:Glossary]

Revised def'n: 3-anthesis stage (PO:0007616): A flower development stage (PO:0007615) when pollen (PO:0025281) is presented and/or the stigma (PO:0009073) is receptive.

  • proposed def'n: anthesis stage (PO:0007616): A flower development stage (PO:0007615) that begins when pollen (PO:0025281) is presented and/or the stigma (PO:0009073) is receptive and ends with pollination (GO:0009856).

Should think about the use of the word presented. May add comment stating that this usually occurs when the flower is open.

    • 5 post anthesis stage (PO:0007617): The phase of a flower after the pollen is presented and/or the stigma is receptive. [source: POC:curators]

Revised def'n: 4-post anthesis stage (PO:0007617): A flower development stage (PO:0007615) that occurs after the anthesis stage (PO:0007616).

proposed def'n: post anthesis stage (PO:0007617): A flower development stage (PO:0007615) that occurs after the anthesis stage (PO:0007616) and lasts until flower morphogenesis is complete (GO:0048439).

floral organ development stage (PO:0007600):

is_a plant organ development stage (PO:0025339); part_of flower development stage (PO:0021004)

Proposed to not use the part_of relationship and use 2 is_a relationships for the time being. The thought process behind this is that by using part_of it infers that floral organ development is a sub stage of flower development meaning that flower development is not a "whole" stage because it is made up of floral organ development. Also it is inconsistent that some of the sub-stages are part_of and some are is_a children.

Current Name and def'n: 3 flower organ development stage (PO:0007600): Stages of development of floral organs defined by characteristic morphological, structural, histological or other visible features.

Revised name and def'n: floral organ development stage (PO:0007600): A plant organ development stage (PO:0025339) that has as primary participant a floral organ (PO:0025395).

new relations, current definitions and revised definitions for subclasses of floral organ development stage (PO:0007600): these were all children of flower organ development stage (PO:0007600).
