Abstract

The bleeding phenomenon that can be observed after the severing of the apical part of the inflorescence of Yucca flaccida HAW. (Agavaceae) very much resembles the bleeding from similarly treated inflorescences of several palm species (e.g. Gibbs, 1911; Tammes, 1933; van Die, 1968), and probably does not differ from the well known bleeding from Agave americana and related species (van Die and Tammes, 1974). In palms and Yucca the bleeding sap can be regarded as phloem exudate (Tammes, 1933; van Die and Tammes, 1966). Typical for the phloem exudates of these Agavaceae and Palmae are the large amounts in which they are produced (several hundreds of millilitres to many hundreds of litres per plant) and the fact that they probably can be obtained from plants in the productive phase only.
