Calycanthaceae, sister to all other Laurales, are the most distinct family of the order in their gynoecium structure (lateral placentation, presence of two ovules). Gynoecium structure was studied in a representative of each genus of Calycanthaceae and gynoecium development in a representative of each of the two subfamilies (Calycanthoideae and Idiospermoideae). Newly found shared features are postgenital coherence between the free carpels (extragynoecial compitum), abortion of the upper of the… Expand
Gynoecial Structure of Vitales and Implications for the Evolution of Placentation in the Rosids
TLDR
The results underscore the labile nature of placentation despite its long use as a character of taxonomic significance and provide a basis for inferring the directionality ofPlacentation evolution in the context of a wider investigation of rosid relationships. 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
Comparative floral structure and systematics in Ochnaceae s.l. (Ochnaceae, Quiinaceae and Medusagynaceae; Malpighiales)
TLDR
The most strongly supported subclade of two of the three families in molecular analyses, Quiinaceae and Medusagynaceae, is also particularly well supported by floral structural features, including the presence of functionally and morphologically unisexual flowers. Expand
Floral development in Anemoneae (Ranunculaceae)
The floral development of two Clematis species and four Anemone species (including Pulsatilla) (Anemoneae, Ranunculaceae) is described. Shared features are: (1) sepals shortly after initiation broad,Expand
Inside the gynoecium: at the carpel margin.
TLDR
Besides regulatory genes, hormones play an important part in the development of the marginal tissues, and recent reports have highlighted the role of cytokinins, as discussed in this review. Expand
The mechanism of stamen movement in Chimonanthus praecox (Calycanthaceae): differential cell growth rates on the adaxial and abaxial surfaces of filaments after flower opening
TLDR
It is concluded that in Chimonanthus the differential cell growth rates between the adaxial and abaxial surfaces of filaments could account for the gradual inward stamen movement following flower opening rather than cell division. Expand
Homology and functions of inner staminodes in Anaxagorea javanica (Annonaceae)
TLDR
The presence of modified stamens together with the floral vasculature and ontogeny imply that the inner staminodes are homologous withStamens, which is essential to understand the homology and pollination function of the innerStaminodes. Expand
The evolution of floral biology in basal angiosperms
  • P. K. Endress
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2010
TLDR
In basal angiosperms (including ANITA grade, magnoliids, Choranthaceae, Ceratophyllaceae) almost all bisexual flowers are dichogamous, and nearly 100 per cent of those are protogynous (with female function before male function). Expand
Anther and ovule development in Camellia japonica (Naidong) in relation to winter dormancy: Climatic evolution considerations
TLDR
The embryo characteristics and the development of C. japonica (Naidong) are significant for phylogeny research of Theoideae, as the taxonomy of this family is currently problematic at all levels and this information is useful flowering induction as a possible horticultural application. Expand
Diversity and Lability of Floral Phyllotaxis in the Pluricarpellate Families of Core Laurales (Gomortegaceae, Atherospermataceae, Siparunaceae, Monimiaceae)
TLDR
In Laurales, floral phyllotaxis diversity appears to have evolved from spiral phyllOTaxis, independently in Atherospermataceae, Siparunaceae, and Monimiaceae. Expand

TLDR
The results most strongly support an Annonaceae-Myristicaceae- canellaceae-Canellaceae alliance, to some degree also an Eupomatiaceae-Degeneriaceae-Himantandraceae-Magnoliaceae alliance and an Illiciaceae-Schisand raceae-Winteraceae-Austrobaileyaceae alliance. Expand

TLDR
Within the family, Siparuna differs from Glossocalyx in having plural tetrads of megaspores and plural, starchy-rich, one-nucleate, tubular embryo sacs (autapomorphies), while GlossocalyX is characterized by having bilaterally flattened seeds (autAPomorphy). Expand

Studies on the Monimiaceae. I. Floral morphology and gametophyte development of Hedycarya arborea J.R. et.G. Forst. (subfamily Monimioideae)
TLDR
Varying carpel vasculature suggests derivation of the uniovulate condition in Hedycarya from ancestors having multiovulate carpels with ovules in two rows, Floral ontogeny is described and it is noted that the terminal stigmatic region of the carpel develops from a solid terminal meristem, in contrast to many woody Ranales in which the stigma consists of crests surrounding theCarpel cleft.

TLDR
Comparisons with other Laurales and Magnoliales show that Gomortega has many embryological features in common with the other lauralean families, but appears to have no embryological autapomorphies, but further comparison with Atherospermataceae is required. Expand
