Part of the Biotechnology in Agriculture and Forestry book series (AGRICULTURE, volume 15)

Abstract

The genus Scutellaria belongs to the family Labiatae and subfam. Scutellarideae. Scutellaria is widely distributed all over the world except for South Africa, and there are about 300 species. The calyx of this genus is remarkably specialized to become two-lip-shaped, and characterized by the upper lip having a flat or dish-shaped upper surface on which a small swelling forms; the dish-shaped part peels off at fruit maturation to allow a seed to fall.
