- 1 February 2010
A combined molecular phylogenetic analysis of matK, the 3′ portion of the trnK intron, and trnL-F sequence data was carried out on 77 taxa representing all genera in the tribe, all informal groups in Schismatoglottis, together with sister tribe Cryptocoryneae, and outgroups from Araceae.
The Role of the interstice staminodes of Bucephalandra Schott (Araceae : Schismatoglottideae)
Fieldwork in various parts of Borneo has now conclusively shown that the motile staminodes of the Bucephalandra Schott are not part of the pollination mechanics but, rather, are implicated in…
