Comparative pollen morphology and ultrastructure of Mentheae subtribe Nepetinae (Lamiaceae)
Phylogenetic significance of leaf micromorphology and anatomy in the tribe Mentheae (Nepetoideae: Lamiaceae)
The anatomical leaf structure was consistent throughout the Mentheae tribe, and the vascular bundles in the midrib were modified into a mechanical tissue, which is an adaptation to xerophytic environments.
Nutlet morphology and anatomy of the genus Lycopus (Lamiaceae: Mentheae)
Nutlet morphology and pericarp structure of 16 species in the genus Lycopus were studied by light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and a detailed description of nutlet…
Micromorphology and Character Evolution of Nutlets in Tribe Mentheae (Nepetoideae, Lamiaceae)
Abstract Mentheae is an economically important tribe in Lamiaceae with many ornamentals and culinary herbs. Although its monophyly is well supported by molecular data, the subtribal delimitation…

Pollen morphology suggests Heterolamium as a close relative of subtribe Nepetinae and supports the molecular affinity of Melissa to subtribe Salviinae, and proposes a phylogenetic context at tribal level for this group.

The combined phylogenetic analyses show that the addition of palynological characters contributes to improved resolution and also increases bootstrap support values in comparison with molecular phylogenetics analyses.
Phylogeny of tribe Mentheae (Lamiaceae): the story of molecules and micromorphological characters.
The evolutionary history of this tribe was reconstructed based on ITS and trnL-trnF spacer sequence data of 71 species, representing 47 out of 65 genera, and morphological variation seems to be correlated with the molecular phylogeny.
Orbicules in Flowering Plants: A Phylogenetic Perspective on their Form and Function
It is shown that orbicules are found all over of flowering plants with an evolutionary trend towards orbicule absence in more derived clades, and the hypothesized correlation of orbicULE presence with non-amoeboid tapetum types holds true.
Phylogenetic evaluation of pollen and orbicule morphology in Rosaceae tribe Neillieae (subfamily Amygdaloideae)
Palynological results provide strong evidence for the merging of Neillia and Stephanandra, and pollen morphological data supported the recent phylogenetic hypothesis that P. insularis should be a member of Spiraea.
Gynodioecy in Lycopus maackianus Makino (Lamiaceae) in Korea: floral dimorphism and nutlet production
It appears that the hermaphrodite individuals of L. maackianus are protandrous, and flowers collected from a natural population in Korea to clarify their precise sexual system confirm that the plant is clearly a gynodioecious plant.
