Contribution to the anatomy of Sagittaria sagittifolia L. (Alismataceae)

  title={Contribution to the anatomy of Sagittaria sagittifolia L. (Alismataceae)},
  author={Rodica Bercu},
Sagittaria sagittifolia L. (Alismataceae), known as “arrowhead”, is a stoloniferous aquatic perennial plant with two sorts of leaves: submerged ribbon-like leaves and leaves above the water surface which develop the characteristic arrowhead shape. Ramets grow as a rosette of leaves. The stem is swollen at the base and throws out creeping stolons or runners, which produce winter tubers composed almost entirely of starch. Flowers are pale pink in a spike. The phenotypic plasticity of the leaves…

Acropetally developing vascular bundles coexisting with basipetally developing and basally blindly ended vascular bundles in scapes of Eriocaulon taquetii (Eriocaulaceae, monocotyledons)

This study examines a whole stem vasculature of Eriocaulon taquetii and detected basipetally developing and basally blindly ended vascular bundles, originated from involucral bracts and arranged with acropetally developed vascular bundles alternately in the scape internode.

Gender plasticity in Sagittaria sagittifolia (Alismataceae), a monoecious aquatic species

Gender plasticity in the European clonal monoecious aquatic Sagittaria sagittifolia (Alismataceae) is investigated to determine how floral sex ratios may vary with plant size and inflorescence order, consistent with the view that monoecy is a sexual strategy that enables plants to adjust female and male allocation in response to changing environmental conditions.
