Valdivian ecosystems in the Late Cretaceous and Early Tertiary of Antarctica: further evidence from myrtaceous and eucryphiaceous fossil wood
Abstract Cool temperate rainforests growing on the flanks of the Andes and along the Coastal Range in Valdivia (Chile) today provide the closest analogue for the fossil floras of Antarctica duringExpand
Wood Anatomy of the Hippocrateoideae (Celastraceae)
TLDR
The wood structure of all genera worldwide (24), except the Asian genus Arnicratea, is described, and it appeared that again a subdivision into two distinct anatomical groups could be made, with the three last tribes mentioned above showing the same characteristic structure as found before in New World Hippocrateae/Hippocrateoideae. Expand
On unusual wood structures in Scrophulariaceae
TLDR
The wood of Aragoa, endemic in the paramos of the Colombian and Venezuelan Andes, proved to be noteworthy because of the complete absence of rays and parenchyma, and the vessels can not be distinguished from the fibres as seen on a cross section, as both are of equal width. Expand
Wood anatomy of the Euphorbiaceae, in particular of the subfamily Phyllanthoideae
TLDR
The paper is mainly devoted to the bi-ovulate subfamily Phyllanthoideae, which has a great number of primitive characters and can be recognized on the basis of their wood anatomy. Expand
WOOD ANATOMY OF THE GENUS EUPLASSA AND ITS RELATION TO OTHER PROTEACEAE OF THE GUIANAS AND BRAZIL
TLDR
Three genera of the Proteaceae belonging to the tribe Grevilleeae occur in the Guianas and Brazil: Roupala, Panopsis, and Euplassa, whose microscopical wood structure proves to be nearly identical with Panopsis which it also resembles in general properties. Expand
The wood structure of Dicranostyles (Convolvulaceae)
TLDR
From a comparison with other Convolvulaceous genera like Bonamia, Ipomoea, Maripa, Neuropeltis, and Prevostea¹ it appears that nearest to Dicranostyles in general appearance as well as in anatomical structure is the genus MaripA. Expand
Wood Anatomy of the Subfamily Euphorbioideae
TLDR
The wood anatomy was studied of 82 species from 34 out of 54 genera in the subfamily Euphorbioideae, covering all five tribes recognized in this subfamily, and laticifers were noticed in most genera, though they are scarce and difficult to trace. Expand
Wood anatomy of Bhesa sinica (Celastraceae)
The wood anatomy of Bhesa sinica (Chang ' Liang) Chang ' Liang, the only species of the genus occurring in China, is described in detail and compared with other Celastraceae. Bhesa sinica closelyExpand
Comparative wood anatomy of Ruptiliocarpon caracolito (Lepidobotryaceae)
Wood anatomy of Ruptiliocarpon caracolito is described and compared in general to Sapindales, and specifically to Trichilia (Meliaceae) and the monotypic, African Lepidobotrys (Lepidobotryaceae). ItExpand
