Anatomical features of species of Cyperaceae from northeastern Brazil
The anatomical data obtained corroborate earlier studies of species of Cyperaceae as to the presence of Kranz anatomy and the anatomical types in several species and the “Kranzkette” pattern in Cyperus ligularis and Cyperu pohlli.
Anatomical variations in scapes of Eleocharis minima Kunth (Cyperaceae, Poales) - amphibian and Kranz species
The plasticity of the Kranz anatomy in Eleocharis minima and in other species of the genus is probably related to the amphibious habit, so the use of characters related to KranZ anatomy inEleocharis in phylogenetic and evolutionary approaches should be restricted and carefully analyzed in view of its plasticity.

Leaf morphology and anatomy of Asteraceae of the Pampas biome (sand-fields)
Diversity of Cyperaceae in Brazil
The purpose of this catalogue was to combine the available data from publications, theses, databases, and herbarium specimens from around 120 Herbaria, and colections sampled in Brazilian vegetation during the last 15 years to produce the most complete list of Cyperaceae species for Brazil.
Occurrence and evolutionary inferences about Kranz anatomy in Cyperaceae (Poales).
The results showed that the four types of Kranz anatomy (associated with C4 photosynthesis) in Cyperaceae emerged numerous times in unrelated phylogenetic groups, however, the convergence of these anatomical types, except rhynchosporoid, was observed in certain groups.
Morphological diversity of foliar trichomes in Asteraceae from Sand-fields of the Pampa biome, Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil
A large number of trichomes is an adaptive strategy to the adverse conditions of the Pampa biome and its morphological diversity can be useful in the family systematics.
Germination performance of congeneric Styrax species from the Cerrado sensu lato areas and their distribution pattern in different physiognomies
Bundle sheath ontogeny in Kranz and non-Kranz species of Cyperaceae (Poales)
The ontogeny of the bundle sheaths of leaves and scapes of Cyperaceae species was studied to determine primary homologies and standardise the terminology used for its description.
The influence of mycorrhization on the growth of Zea mays L. and the sclerification of foliar tissues susceptible to chewing insect attacks
It can be concluded that colonization of corn roots by AMF promotes sclerification of leaf tissues and, thus, may interfere indirectly with the plant–pest relationship by altering the quality of phytomass available for insects.
