Comparative organography (excepting carpels studied previously) and anatomy of the flower are reported for some American members of the genera of Lyciaeae:Lycium, Grabowskia, andPhrodus. Data obtained are mostly new since no comprehensive floral anatomical work has been carried out in the tribe. These results include the first report of extrafloral nectaries on the inner epidermis of the calyx inPhrodus andGrabowskia. Results are discussed and compared with previous reports for the family… Expand
The hybrid nature of Lycium ciliatum × cestroides (Solanaceae): experimental, anatomical, and cytological evidence
TLDR
The hybrid nature of Lycium ciliatum × cestroides Hieron is supported through experimental crosses and may be due to pollen transfer mediated by bumblebees that occasionally visit both parental species. Expand
Pollen morphology of tribe Lycieae: Grabowskia, Lycium, Phrodus (Solanaceae)
TLDR
Pollen characters do not correlate with existing generic limits in the Lycieae tribe nor with sectional treatment of Lycium ; but the pollen results do agree with a recent cladistic study based on other vegetative and reproductive morphological features. Expand
A SYSTEMATIC SURVEY OF FLORAL NECTARIES
TLDR
The construction of classifications, as well as the understanding of biological diversity, depends upon a careful comparison of attributes of the organisms studied, and the extent to which particular characters are constant or labile will determine their usefulness to systematics. 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
systematic significance of floral morphology , nectaries , and ectar concentration in epiphytic cacti of tribes Hylocereeae and hipsalideae ( Cactaceae ) dair
A long-standing interest in cactus taxonomy has existed since the Linnaean generation, but an appreciation of the reproductive biology of cacti started early in the 1900s. Numerous studies indicateExpand
Karyotypic studies in Lycium section Mesocope (Solanaceae) from South America
TLDR
During the diversification within the section, no major visible chromosomal rearrangements have occurred, although cryptic structural changes, as paracentric inversions or reciprocal translocations of segments of similar length may have taken place. Expand
Evolutionary Relationships in Tribe Lycieae (Solanaceae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic results strongly suggest that Lycium contains Grabowskia and may also include Phrodus, and this study has the largest taxon sampling to date for tribe Lycieae, with 85% of the named species. Expand
The relationship between floral nectar composition and visitors in Lycium (Solanaceae) from Argentina and Chile: what does it reflect?
TLDR
The homogeneity of nectar sugar composition in contrast to the variety of visitors and flower forms indicates that there is no correlation between the nectar Sugar ratio and floral form or pollinators, suggesting that nectar ratio is a conservative character in Lycium. Expand
Karyotypic Studies in South American Lycium (Solanaceae).
TLDR
Karyotypic features obtained suggest that morphological differentiation in the group was not followed by chromosomal divergence, and the section is karyotypically homogeneous. Expand
Flower vascularisation in Solanaceae: a particular pattern in Metternichia J.G.Mikan
TLDR
The vascular characters in addition to chromosomal, pollen, anther and seed characters, postulated by other authors, support the independence of M.Mikan from Cestreae. Expand

TLDR
Extra-nuptial nectar glands, by their secretion, attracts to the plants which bear them, hordes of ants which constitute a temporary and changing bodyguard, disputing the presence of all other insects with the exception of their proteges the sugar-secreting aphids, coccids, etc, and resisting often furiously and effectively, the onslaught of ruminants and other large animals.
