GENUS INDEX

GENUS CODE: CAKIL
GENUS SCIENTIFIC: Cakile
GENUS AUTHORITY: Mill.
GENUS COMMON: Searocket
GENUS SUMMARY: A genus of about 7-8 species, annual herbs, primarily of coastal North America, Europe, and North Africa.
GENUS IDENTIFICATION: Identification notes: The siliques of Cakile are divided near their middle by an abscission zone into two halves, each with a single seed: the upper abscises and disperses by water or wind, the lower remains attached to the parent plant. The size of the two segments and the contour of the abscised surface remaining on the lower segment are important taxonomic characters.
