Comparative leaf anatomy and phylogenetic relationships of 11 species of Laeliinae with emphasis on Brassavola (Orchidaceae). Brassavola inhabits a wide altitude range and habitat types from Northern Mexico to Northern Argentina. Classification schemes in plants have normally used vegetative and floral characters, but when species are very similar, as in this genus, conflicts arise in species delimitation, and alternative methods should be applied. In this study we explored the taxonomic and… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Anatomía foliar comparada y sistemática del clado-Trichocentrum con énfasis en Cohniella (Asparagales: Orchidaceae)
The anatomy characters alone are insufficient to assess the relationships amongst the genera of the Trichocentrum-clade, however, the two synapomorphies recovered for Cohniella strongly support its monophyly when these are analyzed in conjunction with other data sources.
Leaf Dimorphism Of Microgramma Squamulosa (Polypodiaceae): a qualitative and quantitative analysis focusing on adaptations to epiphytism.
The higher sclerophylly index and the higher stomatal density observed in sterile leaves are features that make these leaves more xeromorphic, enhancing their efficiency to deal with limited water availability in the epiphytic environment, compared to fertile leaves.
Comparative survey of secretory structures and floral anatomy of Cohniella cepula and Cohniella jonesiana (Orchidaceae: Oncidiinae). New evidences of nectaries and osmophores in the genus
The morpho-anatomical structure of nectaries, osmophores, and elaiophores, and the anatomical and micromorphological features of floral pieces of Cohniella cepula Hoffmans. and Cohniella jonesiana


Systematic and comparative anatomy of Maxillarieae (Orchidaceae), sans Oncidiinae
Cladistic analyses using anatomical characters yielded no resolution among subtribes, illustrating that anatomical characters are of limited value in assessing relationships within this tribe.
Comparative vegetative anatomy and systematics of Cymbidium (Cymbidieae: Orchidaceae)
The genus Cymbidium (Orchidaceae) exhibits distinctive ecological diversification and occurs in terrestrial, epiphytic, and lithophytic life forms and shows peculiar features such as degeneration of stomata, anomocytic stomATA, and lack of stegmata and sclerenchyma, probably correlated with the evolution of mycoparasitic existence.
Comparative vegetative anatomy and systematics of Laeliinae (Orchidaceae)
Both aerial and terrestrial roots are notable for their uniseriate velamen the cell walls of which may be unmarked or ornamented with anticlinal strips.
A phylogenetic study of Laeliinae (Orchidaceae) based on combined nuclear and plastid DNA sequences.
By using combined plastid and nuclear DNA data in conjunction with mixed-models Bayesian inference, it is possible to delimit smaller groups within Laeliinae and discuss general patterns of pollination and hybridization compatibility.
Comparative vegetative anatomy and systematics of the Oncidiinae (Maxillarieae, Orchidaceae)
The strict consensus of the 40 genera studied was completely unresolved, suggesting that vegetative characters alone are insufficient to assess the relationships amongst these taxa, a conclusion also reached for the remainder of Maxillarieae.
With the exception of the pantropical genera Bulbophyllum and Polystachya and the Paleotropical subtribe Coelogyninae, tilosomes are almost exclusively Neotropical phenomena.
Velamen radicum micromorphology and classification of orchidaceae
Roots of 344 species of 262 representative genera of Orchidaceae have been examined under systematic aspects by light and scanning electron microscopy and a particularly remarkable cortex structure is described and the term “pseudovelamen” introduced.
A phylogenetic analysis of the Orchidaceae: evidence from rbcL nucleotide.
RbcL fails to provide strong support for the interrelationships of the subfamilies of the Orchidaceae, and the cladograms presented here should serve as a standard to which future morphological and molecular studies can be compared.
Anatomia foliar de espécies epífitas de Orchidaceae
Most of the leaves studied have sclerified cells close to both surfaces, which could be considered leaf adaptations to an epiphytic habit for most species.
Systematics and biology of silica bodies in monocotyledons
The distribution and diversity of opaline silica bodies in monocotyledons in a phylogenetic framework is described, together with a review of techniques used for their examination, and the ecology, function and economic applications of these cell inclusions are described.
