  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of botany
  • 1 October 2005
Stomatal architecture-the number, form, and arrangement of specialized epidermal cells associated with stomatal guard cells-of 46 species of basal angiosperms representing all ANITA grade familiesExpand
Direct chemical evidence for sphingolipid domains in the plasma membranes of fibroblasts
Sphingolipids play important roles in plasma membrane structure and cell signaling. However, their lateral distribution in the plasma membrane is poorly understood. Here we quantitatively analyzedExpand
Morphology and Phylogenetic Position of Eucomonympha imla (Parabasalia: Hypermastigida)
ABSTRACT. Eucomonympha imla is a hypermastigote parabasalian found in the gut of the wood‐feeding cockroach Cryptocercus punctulatus. It has received little attention since its original descriptionExpand
Specialized structures in the leaf epidermis of basal angiosperms: morphology, distribution, and homology.
  • K. Carpenter
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of botany
  • 1 May 2006
The morphology of specialized structures in the leaf epidermis of 32 species of basal (ANITA: Amborella, Nymphaeales, Illiciales, Trimeniaceae, and Austrobaileyaceae) angiosperms, representing allExpand
The Inadequacy of Morphology for Species and Genus Delineation in Microbial Eukaryotes: An Example from the Parabasalian Termite Symbiont Coronympha
Background For the majority of microbial eukaryotes (protists, algae), there is no clearly superior species concept that is consistently applied. In the absence of a practical biological speciesExpand
Fluorinated colloidal gold immunolabels for imaging select proteins in parallel with lipids using high-resolution secondary ion mass spectrometry.
The local abundance of specific lipid species near a membrane protein is hypothesized to influence the protein's activity. The ability to simultaneously image the distributions of specific proteinExpand
Correlated SEM, FIB-SEM, TEM, and NanoSIMS Imaging of Microbes from the Hindgut of a Lower Termite: Methods for In Situ Functional and Ecological Studies of Uncultivable Microbes
Abstract The hindguts of lower termites harbor highly diverse, endemic communities of symbiotic protists, bacteria, and archaea essential to the termite's ability to digest wood. Despite over aExpand
Phylogenetic position and morphology of spirotrichosomidae (parabasalia): new evidence from Leptospironympha of Cryptocercus punctulatus.
Parabasalia are a large, diverse clade of anaerobic flagellates, many of which inhabit the guts of wood-feeding insects. Because most are uncultivable, molecular data representing the true diversityExpand
Pollen morphology and systematics of palaeotropical Phyllanthus and related genera of subtribe Phyllanthinae (Euphorbiaceae)
The observations of pollen from 27 species of subtribe Phyllanthinae using scanning electron microscopy reveal considerable morphological diversity in palaeotropical Phyllanthus and the relatedExpand
Molecular and morphological analysis of the family Calonymphidae with a description of Calonympha chia sp. nov., Snyderella kirbyi sp. nov., Snyderella swezyae sp. nov. and Snyderella yamini sp. nov.
Calonymphids are a group of multinucleate, multiflagellate protists belonging to the order Cristamonadida (Parabasalia) that are found exclusively in the hindgut of termites from the familyExpand
