Distribution of anatomically-preserved floras in the Lower Carboniferous in Western Europe
Twelve localities of Lower Carboniferous strata in Scotland (Loch Humphrey Burn, Glenarbuck, Pettycur, Oxroad Bay and the Berwickshire localities of Cove, Burnmouth, Gavinton, Edrom, Foulden) and in
Earliest Evidence of Insect Endophytic Oviposition
The antiquity of the insect endophytic oviposition behavior suggests that it could have been important during the emergence and diversification of the insects group.
The diversification of early arborescent seed ferns
A new plant that has leaf traces originating as a double strand and a petiole base of the Kalymma-type, therefore showing characteristics of calamopityan seed ferns but being quite distinct in features of the stele, secondary xylem and phloem is presented.
Transitional changes in arborescent lignophytes at the Devonian–Carboniferous boundary
Abstract: It is usually considered that after the extinction of the Devonian tree Archaeopteris, no new arborescent lignophytes were established before the late Tournaisian. A reassessment of this
Anatomically preserved conifer-like stems from the Upper Carboniferous of England
Gymnosperm stems preserved in volcaniclastic deposits, from the Upper Carboniferous (Westphalian C) of the West Midlands, England, U. K., provide anatomical characters of the wood, pith and primary

Paleobotanical data confirm that the megaphyllous leaf evolved independently several times from the Middle Devonian to the Early Carboniferous, and fundamental differences in their petiole anatomy support the early divergence of the two groups.
Floras from red beds of the Permian Basin of Lodève (Southern France)
Las plantas fosiles de las capas rojas de la cuenca de Lodeve son generalmente escasas y su estado de conservacion es relativamente pobre comparada a la flora del “Autuniense gris”. De acuerdo con
Fossil plants from the Viséan of East Kirkton, West Lothian, Scotland
Plant fossils are a common and important element in the East Kirkton biota of Brigantian (late Visean age). The most important taxa are preserved as compressions or anatomically preserved as
