It is demonstrated that variation in female gametophyte developmental patterns represents the source material that ultimately creates variation in endosperm genetics and is seen as one between the origin of structural novelties and its downstream consequences on the relative fitness of these novelties, as expressed in the biology of endosperms.

Female gametophyte and early seed development in Peperomia (Piperaceae).
It is posited that the origin of the perisperm may have relaxed selection on endosperm genetic constructs, thereby promoting diversification of female gametophyte ontogeny and how developmental modifications of wall formation could produce the diverse cellular configurations observed throughout Peperomia.

It is likely that this mangrove species will be able to adapt to a wide range of potential future environmental conditions, and continue its expansion in the Gulf of Mexico in response to near-term climate change.

The developmental basis of an evolutionary diversification of female gametophyte structure in Piper and Piperaceae.
Detailed hypotheses indicate that the common ancestor of Piperaceae minus Verhuellia had a Drusa-type female gametophyte, and that evolutionary transitions to derived tetrasporic female gamETophyte ontogenies in Piperaceae are the consequence of key nuclear migration and patterning events at the end of megasporogenesis.
Female gametophyte development in Aristolochia labiata Willd. (Aristolochiaceae)
Detailed analyses of female gametophyte development in Aristolochia labiata that combine light and confocal microscopy with three-dimensional computer reconstruction demonstrate that, at the two-nucleate stage of development, separation of nuclei to opposite poles of the female gamete does not appear to be dependent on vacuolar expansion as generally hypothesized.
