Ecology of some Late Triassic to Early Cretaceous ferns in Eurasia
Abstract During the Late Triassic to Early Cretaceous the majority of ferns in Eurasia grew under warm (subtropical to tropical) conditions in moist environments, including peat-forming swamps,Expand
A review of the Matoniaceae based on in situ spores
Fossil and extant matoniaceous spores in situ have been studied by LM and SEM and several spore types could be distinguished, based on spore size, absence or presence of interradial and apical thickenings, thickness and sculpture of the exospore and absence or absence of a perispore. Expand
Osmundaceous spores in situ from the Jurassic of Yorkshire, England
In this paper the spores of the Jurassic ferns Todites thomasii, Todites denticulatus, Todites williamsonii, Todites princeps and Osmundopsis sturii are redescribed, also with the aid of scanningExpand
Schizaeaceous spores in situ from the Jurassic of Yorkshire, England
The spores of Klukia exilis and Stachypteris spicans are redescribed with the aid of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and compared with spores of other fossil Schizaeaceae, with Recent species and with Jurassic dispersed spores attributed to the SchizAEaceae. Expand
Changing CO2 conditions during the end-Triassic inferred from stomatal frequency analysis on Lepidopteris ottonis (Goeppert) Schimper and Ginkgoites taeniatus (Braun) Harris
Abstract End-Triassic fluctuations in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration were reconstructed by the use of stomatal frequency analysis on a single plant species: the seedfern LepidopterisExpand
Fossil insect eggs on Lower Jurassic plant remains from Bavaria (Germany)
Imprints of fossil insect eggs (oviposition slits of endophytic eggs) on Lower Jurassic plants from Franconia (Bavaria, Germany) are described and comparison with other fossil insect egg/plant relationships are made. Expand
The Jurassic fossil plant record of the UK area
Plant life in the UK area during the three major epochs of the Jurassic (Early, Mid and Late) is discussed with emphasis on some of the groups that played an important role and/or were firstExpand
Equisetites arenaceus from the Upper Triassic of Germany with evidence for reproductive strategies
An additional mode of vegetative reproduction by shed twig indicating adventitious roots is proven and dense packages of shed twigs built up patches of newly sprouted rhizome layers in autochthonous situations. Expand
