Floral anatomy and systematics of Alliaceae with particular reference to Gilliesia, a presumed insect mimic with strongly zygomorphic flowers.

Abstract

The floral structure of Alliaceae is assessed in relation to the systematics of the family, especially the nature of the component parts of the remarkably insect-like flower of Gilliesia graminea. Both presence of solid styles and possession of tenuinucellate ovules represent consistent synapomorphies for Alliaceae and support the separation of Agapanthus… (More)
