Abstract The diverse bennettitalean plant remains from the Rhaetian of Wustenwelsberg, Franconia, southern Germany, are described by means of macromorphological and epidermal anatomy; the study is part of the ongoing examination of this recently excavated and excellently preserved fossil flora. The taxa identified include four species of Pterophyllum , one species of Anomozamites , two species of Nilssoniopteris and one species of Wielandiella with sterile leaves, bracts and ovulate… Expand
Ferns and fern allies in the Rhaetian flora of Wüstenwelsberg, Bavaria, Germany
TLDR
The comparison of the flora from Wustenwelsberg with adjacent Rhaetian floras revealed distinct local differences in the respective floras, which are discussed in the light of paleogeography involving dispersal patterns or mechanisms and adaptations of the plants. Expand
Seed ferns and cycads in the Rhaetian flora of Wüstenwelsberg, Bavaria, Germany
TLDR
The comparison of the flora from Wustenwelsberg with adjacent Rhaetian floras revealed distinct local differences in the seed fern and cycad portion of the respective floras, which are discussed in the light of palaeogeography involving dispersal patterns or mechanisms and adaptations of the plants.

The Rhaetian flora of Wüstenwelsberg, Bavaria, Germany: Description of selected gymnosperms (Ginkgoales, Cycadales, Coniferales) together with an ecological assessment of the locally prevailing vegetation
Abstract This paper describes the ginkgoaleans (Ginkgoites) and conifers (Palissya, Stachyotaxus, Schizolepis) of the Rhaetian flora from Wustenwelsberg, as well as a new species of the cycadExpand
Bennettitalean Leaves From the Permian of Equatorial Pangea—The Early Radiation of an Iconic Mesozoic Gymnosperm Group
Bennettitaleans are an extinct group of gymnosperms that are among the most iconic plants of Earth’s vegetation during the Mesozoic Era. The sudden appearance and rise to dominance of theExpand
The diversity of Australian Mesozoic bennettitopsid reproductive organs
TLDR
The extremely low representation of reproductive organs vis-à-vis foliage is interpreted to reflect a combination of physical disintegration of the seed-bearing units while attached to the host axis and, potentially, extensive vegetative reproduction in bennettopsids growing at high southern latitudes during the Mesozoic.

Westersheimia pramelreuthensis from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Lunz, Austria: More Evidence for a Unitegmic Seed Coat in Early Bennettitales
  • C. Pott
  • Biology
  • International Journal of Plant Sciences
  • 2016
TLDR
Studies of b Bennettitalean reproductive organs from Scania (Sweden), Jameson Land (Greenland), and Yorkshire (United Kingdom) facilitated reevaluation of the disputed architecture of bennettitalan seeds, and the findings clearly indicate that early bennett italean seeds can be interpreted as unitegmic.

Exceptionally well-preserved Early Cretaceous leaves of Nilssoniopteris from central Mongolia
Abstract Two new Early Cretaceous (Aptian-Albian) species of fossil bennettitalean leaves are described from central Mongolia and assigned to the genus Nilssoniopteris. Nilssoniopteris tomentosaExpand
Lunzia austriaca – a bennettitalean microsporangiate structure with Cycadopites-like in situ pollen from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Lunz, Austria
TLDR
It is revealed that Lunzia austriaca is a pollen organ resembling structures assigned to Weltrichia, and its structure is compared with several contemporary bennettitaleans; sterile foliage and ovulate structures most likely associated with Lunziale are Pterophyllum filicoides and Westersheimia pramelreuthensis, respectively.

A shoot with attached leaves of Desmiophyllum harrisii Barbacka et Pacyna from the Rhaetian of Bavaria, Germany
TLDR
A shoot with attached leaves assignable to Desmiophyllum harrisii from the Rhaetian of Bavaria is record, besides a few specimens with dispersed leaf fragments, which points to a habitat in moist environments. Expand

The morphology and phylogenetic significance of Vardekloeftia Harris (Bennettitales)
TLDR
Comparisons of Vardekloeftia with other Bennettitales suggests that pollination and dispersal may have been relatively unspecialized in this early member of the group. Expand
Revision of the Pterophyllum species (Cycadophytina: Bennettitales) in the Carnian (Late Triassic) flora from Lunz, Lower Austria
TLDR
A revision of the genus Pterophyllum in the famous Late Triassic flora of Lunz, Lower Austria, based on macromorphology, biometry, and epidermal anatomy suggests that certain Bennettitales locally became significant elements of the vegetation relatively early in their evolutionary history. Expand

  • C. Pott
  • Biology
  • International Journal of Plant Sciences
  • 2014
TLDR
Wielandiella definitely forms a separate genus within the Williamsoniaceae that is distinct from Williamsoniella and Williamsonia and circumscribes a whole-plant concept that includes branched axes bearing leaves, immature seed cones, and monosporangiate, flowerlike reproductive structures. Expand
Bennettitalean foliage in the Rhaetian-Bajocian (latest Triassic-Middle Jurassic) floras of Scania, southern Sweden.
TLDR
Cuticular analysis, associated fossils and sedimentological indices suggest that the Scanian Triassic–Jurassic bennettitaleans occupied relatively moist habitats but probably experienced physiological drought via growth on low-nutrient and low-pH substrates. Expand

Reconstruction of a bennettitalean flower from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Lunz, Lower Austria
TLDR
This study reconstructs a bennettitalean flower from isolated parts from the Carnian (Upper Triassic) of Lunz in Lower Austria, including Cycadolepis wettsteinii scale leaves, Haitingeria krasseri pollen organs, and Bennetticarpus wetsteinii ovulate organs/seed cones, based on correspondences in gross morphology and epidermal anatomy.
