Cyanide-Insensitive Respiration in Thermogenic Flowers of Victoria and Nelumbo
The thermogenic carpeilary appendages of the flowers of Victoria cruziana d'Orb. and the thermogenic staminal appendages of Nelumbo lutea (Willd.) Pers. possess the cyanide-insensitive, 'alternative'Expand

Further studies of the glandular tissue of the Sauromatum guttatum (Araceae) appendix.
Electron microscopic studies showed that the trans-Golgi network (trans indicates the polarity of cisternae within the Golgi apparatus; it is opposite to the cis-face that is adjacent to the roughExpand

Infrared thermography ofArum lily inflorescences
The infrared radiation emitted from the surface of inflorescences of 12 aroid species was monitored with an infrared camera, capable of 0.1°C resolution, and the data were converted to temperatureExpand

Pathway of terpene excretion by the appendix of Sauromatum guttatum.
Electron microscopy of the cells of the thermogenic appendix of Sauromatum guttatum has revealed a fusion event between pocket-like structures of the rough endoplasmic reticulum (rER) and the plasmaExpand

Oscillatory Heat-Production in the Male Cones of Cycads
Microcalorimetric analysis of heat-production by single intact sporophylls from thermogenic male cones of two cycad species (Ceratozamia miqueliana H. Wendl. and Zamia furfuracea L. f.) showed anExpand

Heat Production in the Voodoo Lily (Sauromatum guttatum) as Monitored by Infrared Thermography.
The pattern of surface temperatures of the inflorescence of Sauromatum guttatum was investigated by using an infrared camera. The male flowers are weakly thermogenic on the first day of inflorescenceExpand

Oxidation of Proline and Glutamate by Mitochondria of the Inflorescence of Voodoo Lily (Sauromatum guttatum).
In appendices of Sauromatum guttatum that are developing thermogenicity, mitochondria isolated from successive developmental stages of the inflorescence show an increase in the oxidation rates ofExpand

Developmental changes in the ultrastructure of the Sauromatum guttatum (Araceae) mitochondria.
Electron microscopic studies show that the electron density of the mitochondria of the thermogenic appendix of Sauromatum guttatum inflorescences changes during development. Two to 3 days beforeExpand
