Association of cone thermogenesis and volatiles with pollinator specificity in Macrozamia cycads
Differences in cone traits between Macrozamia species may be responsible for conferring pollinator specificity in areas of sympatry.
Acaricidal and Cytotoxic Activities of Extracts from Selected Genera of Australian Lamiaceae
Overall, the lowest toxicity was observed for extracts from the plant subfamily Prostantheroideae, which showed little contact toxicity or cytotoxicity for the 18 extracts studied, but several interesting relationships were identified.
Pollination of Australian Macrozamia cycads (Zamiaceae): effectiveness and behavior of specialist vectors in a dependent mutualism.
The pollination potential of 25 Cycadothrips approximates that of one Tranes weevil and 25 thrips, indicating that chance plays a greater role in this system.
Recircumscription of the Stapelieae (Asclepiadaceae)
The infrafamilial classification of the Asclepiadaceae has been investigated from the nomenclatural side by Sundell (1980) who indicated that this classification has been based almost entirely on the
Major Clades of Australasian Rutoideae (Rutaceae) Based on rbcL and atpB Sequences
This comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the Australasian Rutoideae gives a broad overview of the group’s evolutionary and biogeographic history and provides a basis for taxonomic revision and a necessary framework for more focused studies of genera and species.
Cassytha pubescens and C. glabella (Lauraceae) are not disjunctly distributed between Australia and the Ryukyu Archipelago of Japan – evidence from morphological and molecular data
Abstract. Morphological comparisons and molecular phylogenetic analyses were conducted to resolve taxonomic confusion in Cassytha glabella and C. pubescens, both of which were first described from
