Sequence and Expression Studies of A‐, B‐, and E‐Class MADS‐Box Homologues in Eupomatia (Eupomatiaceae): Support for the Bracteate Origin of the Calyptra
Eupomatia (Magnoliales, Eupomatiaceae) has flowers that bear a calyptra, an unusual organ that encloses the floral bud. The structural homology and evolutionary derivation of the calyptra areExpand

Flower structure and development of Araceae compared with alismatids and Acoraceae
Floral development of Araceae is compared with that of other basal monocots such as alismatids andAcorus . Flowers of Araceae, Acorus and several alismatids with spicate inflorescences lack aExpand

Floral gene resources from basal angiosperms for comparative genomics research
BackgroundThe Floral Genome Project was initiated to bridge the genomic gap between the most broadly studied plant model systems. Arabidopsis and rice, although now completely sequenced and underExpand

Floral Developmental Morphology of Amborella trichopoda (Amborellaceae)
We investigated the early floral development of the monotypic genus Amborella, the sister to all other extant angiosperms. Examination of vegetative shoot development revealed that AmborellaExpand

Gynoecium diversity and systematics in basal monocots
Abstract Gynoecium and ovule structure was comparatively studied in representatives of the basal monocots, including Acorales (Acoraceae), Alismatales (Araceae, Alismataceae, Aponogetonaceae,Expand

The ABC model and its applicability to basal angiosperms.
BACKGROUND Although the flower is the central feature of the angiosperms, little is known of its origin and subsequent diversification. The ABC model has long been the unifying paradigm for floralExpand

Floral Structure and Development of Acoraceae and Its Systematic Relationships with Basal Angiosperms
Flower development and anatomy of Acorus calamus and flower anatomy of A. gramineus were studied. Findings were compared with published reports on paleoherbs. Important developmental features includeExpand

Genetic Footprints of Stamen Ancestors Guide Perianth Evolution in Persea (Lauraceae)
The perianth of Persea americana (Lauraceae) consists of two whorls of morphologically similar laminar organs, termed tepals. Closely related Persea borbonia, however, produces a dimorphic perianthExpand
