Floral development and androecium structure were studied in eight genera of the Malvoideae (Malvaceae s.l.). All core Malvoideae (Malvaceae s.s.) share a uniform pattern of floral development and have several characteristic androecium structures in common. A corolla/androecium ring wall is formed and subsequently differentiated into five androecial sectors (=primary androecial primordia) that give rise to the androecium and corolla. Petals are developed at the base of the androecial sectors and… Expand
Structure and evolution of the androecium in the Malvatheca clade (Malvaceae s.l.) and implications for Malvaceae and Malvales
TLDR
The data indicate that i) elongate, sessile androecial units are ancestral in the Malvatheca clade, that ii) an obdiplostemonous floral ground plan is a synapomorphy for theMalvaceae, and that iii) diplostemony is most likely ancestral inThe Malvales. Expand
Structure, development and evolution of the androecium in Adansonieae (core Bombacoideae, Malvaceae s.l.)
TLDR
Androecium development and vasculature imply that the alternipetalous androecial sectors have been reduced in Bombacoideae, a tendency that is shared with other subfamilies of Malvaceae. Expand
Comparative floral ontogeny of single-flowered and double-flowered phenotypes of Alcea rosea (Malvaceae)
TLDR
The double-flowered phenotypes of Alcea appear to fit the criteria for homo heterotopy with complete or partial replacement of stamens with petals, as well as for neoheterotopy, with the formation ofStamens in a new position. Expand
Early floral development and androecium organization in the sarracenioid clade (Actinidiaceae, Roridulaceae and Sarraceniaceae) of Ericales
TLDR
The early floral development of Actinidia, sarracenioids and Roridula gorgonias and Heliamphora nutans was studied comparatively using scanning electron microscopy, further emphasizing the highly variable patterns of androecium development in the order. Expand
Early floral development and androecium organization in Fouquieriaceae (Ericales)
TLDR
From a phylogenetic point of view, it seems plausible that the common ancestor of Fouquieriaceae and its sister family Polemoniaceae was characterized by two alternating, pentamerous stamen-whorls. Expand
Early floral development of Pentaphylacaceae (Ericales) and its systematic implications
TLDR
The results clearly support a close relationship between Anneslea and Ternstroemia and also suggest a closer relationship among Adinandra, Cleyera, and Euryodendron on the one hand and between Eurya and Visnea on the other. Expand
Floral development of Lavatera trimestris and Malva hispanica reveals the nature of the epicalyx in the Malva generic alliance
TLDR
The predominantly trimerous structure and leafy morphology of the epicalyx suggest its origin from a former subtending leaf with leaf-like stipules, which is close relatives but show contrasting morphologies of Lavatera trimestris and Malva hispanica. Expand
Comparative morphology and ontogenetic patterns of Bdallophytum species (Cytinaceae, Malvales): insight into the biology of an endoparasitic genus
TLDR
Cytinaceae are root endoparasitic plants with only three genera, and most knowledge of the family is based on the Old World genus, Cytinus, but here, all three are studied. Expand
Flower Structure and Trends of Evolution in Eudicots and Their Major Subclades1
TLDR
It is shown that features that are potential key innovations, because they characterize strongly diversified clades, are also sporadically present in species-poor clades more to the base of the phylogenetic tree, indicating that what appear as key innovations in certain groups may be present in latent form long before their manifestation as a key innovation. Expand
Venation pattern and micromorphology of schizocarps of Gaya and related genera within Malveae (Malvaceae)
TLDR
Venation pattern and micromorphological characters of mericarps, as well as novel seed trichome types here reported support the delimitation of genera studied and highlight the isolated position of Gaya within Malvaeae. Expand

Phylogenetic Relationships and Floral Evolution of the Byttnerioideae (“Sterculiaceae” or Malvaceae s.l.) Based on Sequences of the Chloroplast Gene, ndhF
TLDR
Results imply that the unusual hooded petals of many Byttnerioideae are plesiomorphic for the clade, with subsequent transitions to large, flat petals or small, scale-like petals that lack a distinct hood. Expand

TLDR
It will be seen that the Malvales are well defined by characters other than purely floristic ones; they form a very natural order. Expand
Complex polyandry in the Magnoliatae: definition, distribution and systematic value
TLDR
A revised definition of complex polyandry is presented for the Magnoliatae and Stamen trunk bundles (stamen fascicle traces) are correlated with preformed complex primordia and the absence of a hypanthium. Expand
The character states of the Caribbean monotypic endemic Strumpfia (Rubiaceae)
TLDR
Because of a) many unusual and, in part, unique features and b) the lack of detailed comparative data for neotropical Rubiaceae, the genus' subfamilial and tribal position remains obscure. Expand
The distribution and systematic relevance of the androecial character polymery
TLDR
Polymery is consistent with other floral characters, such as the nature of perianth, vasculature (axial and cortical systems) and merosity, and must be regarded as gradual variations of each character state. Expand
Control of phyllotaxy in maize by the abphyl1 gene.
TLDR
A recessive maize mutant, abphyl1, is described that initiates leaves in opposite pairs, in a pattern termed decussate phyllotaxy, which is larger than normal throughout development, though the general structure and organization of the meristem is not altered. Expand
Support for an expanded family concept of Malvaceae within a recircumscribed order Malvales: a combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL DNA sequences
TLDR
Sequence analyses of the plastid genes atp B and rbc L support an expanded order Malvales and propose to merge Sterculiaceae, Tiliaceae and Bombacaceae with Malvaceae and subdivide this enlarged family Malvoideae into nine subfamilies based on molecular, morphological, and biogeographical data.
