Floral organ development of Alpinia oxyphylla Miq. begins with the initiation of sepal primordia, and then the three common primordia comprising petal and inner whorl androecial members. each common primordium separates into a dorsal petal and a ventral androecial member. The adaxial common primordium begins to separate first to produce the functional stamen and the adaxial petal. Subsequently the two abaxial common primordia separate to form two abaxial inner androecial members and two abaxial…

Can the anatomy of abnormal flowers elucidate relationships of the androecial members in the ginger (Zingiberaceae)?
TLDR
The present study adds to a growing body of literature suggesting that the anatomy of abnormal flowers may not provide enough evidence for elucidating the relationships of the androecial members, and help to better understand how the vascular system is constructed during the and roecial petaloidy evolution.
Floral Development Reveals the Existence of a Fifth Staminode on the Labellum of Basal Globbeae
TLDR
It is indicated that the development of a fifth staminode could be a recurring plesiomorphic trait for Globbeae, only retained in G. geoffrayi and the results may also support the interpretation of an atavistic expression of a once lost staminodes.
Isolation and Characterization of Three MADS-box Genes from Alpinia hainanensis (Zingiberaceae)
TLDR
Present studies strongly support the hypothesis that the labellum of A. hainanensis originated from stamens, and suggest that while AhMADS5 and AhMAD8 belong to the B-class MADS-box gene family, AhM ADS6 belongs to a different category, the C-class MadS- box gene family.

TLDR
The results show that the relative timing of developmental events can vary even over a short developmental period.
Inflorescence and flower development in Costus scaber (Costaceae)
TLDR
The inflorescence of Costus scaber terminates an erect axis of a sympodial rhizome system and Floral organs are formed sequentially beginning with the calyx, and continuing with the corolla and inner androecial whorl, outer androECial wh orl, and gynoecium.
Floral vasculature in Alpinia hainanensis in relation to the nature of the labellum in gingers
Observations presented here on floral vasculature in Alpinia hainanensis indicate that the labellum incorporates elements of five androecial members rather than two or three, as suggested by previous
Inflorescence structure and development in the Zingiberales: Thalia geniculata (Marantaceae)
TLDR
The inflorescence of Thalia geniculata is among the most complex in a family characterized by complex inflorescences, with primary bracts which subtend either enriching branches, in the enriching zone, or pairs of flowers, inThe florescence.
Evolution of zygomorphy in monocot flowers: iterative patterns and developmental constraints
TLDR
This work explores morphological transitions among monocot flowers and discusses them in terms of modification of existing structures, perhaps indicating that this pattern results from loss of function or overexpression of the same genes involved in establishment of Pattern 1.
The phylogeny and a new classification of the gingers (Zingiberaceae): evidence from molecular data.
TLDR
New phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences of the nuclear internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and plastid matK regions suggest that at least some of these morphological traits are homoplasious and three of the tribes are paraphyletic.

PHYLOGENY OF THE SCITAMINEAE—MORPHOLOGICAL AND ANATOMICAL CONSIDERATIONS
TLDR
This article is a brief summary of the major results from recent studies on the anatomy and morphology of the vegetative organs of the Scitamineae, and permits an introduction of ideas which originated only as the survey was completed.
THE EPIGYNOUS GLANDS OF ZINGIBERACEAE
TLDR
Abnormal flowers of many species confirmed the conclusions drawn from normal flowers that the epigynous glands in this family are special vascularized upward growths from intramarginal portions of the carpels.
