Integrative Plant Anatomy
The Anatomical Foundation of the Plant Body: An Overview focuses on the role of tissue Organization in Stems, Leaves, and Roots in the Origin and Structure of the Secondary Plant Body. Expand
Evolution and systematics
The methodology of cladistic analysis has become the most widespread approach to modern phylogenetic reconstruction and Anatomy provides important derived character states for the recognition of closely related taxa. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of Cunoniaceae
The Cunoniaceae appear positioned at a critical transitional point in the evolution of higher dicotyledonous groups (see also Ehrendorfer 1977; EhrendOrfer et al. 1984) and, therefore, assume considerable phylogenetic importance. Expand
Developmental morphology of stipules and systematics of the Cunoniaceae and presumed allies. I: Taxa with interpetiolar stipules
Les resultats de l'etude du developpement des feuilles and stipules, ofertains d'anatomie nodale parmi les Cuniaceae, et des familles qui leur sont proches, sont presentes. Expand

Morphology and anatomy of the malagasy genus Physena (Physenaceae), with a discussion of the relationships of the genus
La morphologie et l'anatomie d'organes vegetatifs et reproducteurs de l'enigmatique genre malgache Physena (Dicotyledones) ont ete etudiees pour determiner ses affinites selon l'importance relative donnee a chaque caractere. Expand
Floral anatomy of the Styracaceae, including observations on intra-ovarian trichomes
Floral vascularization provides evidence that the family was derived from an obdiplostemonous ancestor and numerous similarities in floral morphology and anatomy between Styracaceae and Ericales are pointed out. Expand

  • 1 March 1990
The totality of morphological and anatomical evidence confirms the view that Medusagyne is a very distinct and evolutionarily isolated genus, best treated as forming the monotypic familyMedusagynaceae. Expand
