Comparative floral development in Lithospermum (Boraginaceae) and implications for the evolution and development of heterostyly.

Abstract

PREMISE OF THE STUDY The evolution and development of floral developmental patterns were investigated in three heterostylous and three homostylous species of Lithospermum to determine whether species that independently acquired the same floral form follow the same pattern of development or different patterns. METHODS Using light and scanning electron… (More)
