Calycanthaceae are sister to the remainder of Laurales (magnoliid clade), an order seemingly showing high variability in floral phyllotaxis. Previous studies of floral phyllotaxis in this family focused on one species, Calycanthus floridus. Therefore, a comparative study of floral phyllotaxis, comprising species of all four genera of the family, was undertaken. Floral phyllotaxis is spiral according to the Fibonacci pattern for all species studied. The more or less extensive transition zone… 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
Floral Development and Anatomy of Aextoxicon punctatum (Aextoxicaceae‐Berberidopsidales): An Enigmatic Tree at the Base of Core Eudicots
TLDR
Data indicate that Aextoxicon, together with Berberidopsidaceae, might represent a basal transitional lineage of basal to core eudicots and evidence that pentamerous flowers with a biseriate perianth evolved from progenitors with a comparable floral structure is provided. Expand
Inflorescence Structure in Laurales—Stable and Flexible Patterns
TLDR
Structural results show that there are trends of occurrence of certain patterns in families or subclades within families, and these may be useful in a morphological matrix of magnoliids (see work by Doyle and Endress for basal angiosperms). Expand
Comparative Gynoecium Structure and Development in Calycanthaceae (Laurales)
TLDR
The lateral ovules position in Calycanthaceae is correlated with a different development of carpel closure as compared with core Laurales, which exhibit median ovule position, and the identity of “staminodes” (sterile organs between stamens and carpels) is discussed. 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
Floral phyllotaxis in basal angiosperms: development and evolution.
TLDR
Improved resolution of phylogenetic relationships and increased knowledge of the diversity of floral phyllotaxis will allow us to trace evolutionary changes in floral phytotaxis in ever more detail. Expand
Saportanthus, an Extinct Genus of Laurales from the Early Cretaceous of Portugal
TLDR
Flowers of Saportanthus possess a combination of characters that indicate a relationship to extant Laurales but that is unknown among extant or fossil members of the group, and provides further evidence of extensive extinction in the early diversification of angiosperms. Expand
Floral Organogenesis in Three Members of the Tribe Delphinieae (Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
The results showed that members of Delphinieae differ from their polysymmetrical relatives by four unique features: a spiral phyllotaxis of their perianth and stamens, and a series of carpels, which initiated superficially in a whorl-liked arrangement. Expand
Schenkeriphyllum glanduliferum, a new magnolialean angiosperm from the Early Cretaceous of Northern Gondwana and its relationships to fossil and modern Magnoliales
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis confirms that Schenkeriphyllum represents most likely a sister taxon to Endressinia for which the diagnosis is slightly emended and may represent together a sister clade to extant Magnoliaceae. Expand
Fruit Structure of Calycanthaceae (Laurales): Histology and Development
TLDR
The structure of the parenchymatous pericarp, which may be partly obliterated in fruiting carpels in berries of Idiospermoideae, is similar to that in some Atherospermataceae and Monimiaceae with a berry fruit type. Expand

Floral Developmental Morphology of Amborella trichopoda (Amborellaceae)
TLDR
It is hypothesize that genes correlated with stamen identity (e.g., B‐class MADS‐box genes) may show a gradual change in expression pattern throughout the floral parts of Amborella and perhaps other basal angiosperms, corresponding to the observed gradual morphological transitions. Expand
Early Floral Development and Nature of the Calyptra in Eupomatiaceae (Magnoliales)
TLDR
The calyptra in Eupomatiaceae is best interpreted as a single, amplexicaul bract, indicated by the floral development of Eupoatiaceae and also by comparison with the closest relatives (Annonaceae, Magnoliaceae, Himantandraceae), which have calyPTra‐like structures that more clearly correspond to bracts.

The Reproductive Structures of the Basal Angiosperm Amborella Trichopoda (Amborellaceae)
TLDR
Amborella, the putatively basalmost extant angiosperm, is poorly known in its reproductive structures and a tentative list of plesiomorphic floral features is given. Expand
Evolution of Floral Structures in Basal Angiosperms
TLDR
The reconstructed patterns of evolution in the flowers of basal angiosperms indicate that the patterns of perianth and stamen phyllotaxis are usually, but not always, closely associated, and that floral characters are generally consistent with phylogenetic relationships inferred from molecular data.

Araripia florifera, a magnoliid angiosperm from the Lower Cretaceous Crato Formation (Brazil)
TLDR
In floral and leaf characters the fossil shows similarities to some extant members of the Laurales, however, the character combination observed for the fossil is not found in any extant taxon, and the fossil may represent an extinct lineage within or close to theLaurales. Expand
Lauraceous Flowers from the Potomac Group (Mid-Cretaceous) of Eastern North America

Mauldinia mirabilis is the first unequivocal documentation of Lauraceae from the Cretaceous and provides further evidence for considerable diversity among magnoliid dicotyledons at an early phase in angiosperm diversification. Expand

The vascular supply to the carpel of Idiospermum, while possibly a modification of that of the carpels of Calycanthus, could also be interpreted as having an independent origin and other differences and resemblances are described. Expand
