Cardiopteris is unique in the expanded Cardiopteridaceae for several distinctive features, including its gynoecial structure and ovular morphology. We studied the floral development of Cardiopteris to clarify floral morphology and document floral development. Cardiopteris has three carpel primordia, which are separate at their tips but congenitally fused at their bases. The synascidiate zone (the fused proximal part) develops into the unilocular ovary; the three discrete carpel apices diverge… Expand
Floral development of Gonocaryum with emphasis on the gynoecium
We investigated the floral development of Gonocaryum, a genus of Cardiopteridaceae that was segregated from Icacinaceae s.l., using scanning electron microscopy to clarify its gynoecial structure andExpand
Embryology of Cardiopteris (Cardiopteridaceae, Aquifoliales), with emphasis on unusual ovule and seed development
  • H. Tobe

TLDR
The fertilization mode in Cardiopteris underpins the hypothesis that the Polygonum‒type female gametophyte comprises two four-celled archegonia. Expand
Floral structure of Emmotum (Icacinaceae sensu stricto or Emmotaceae), a phylogenetically isolated genus of lamiids with a unique pseudotrimerous gynoecium, bitegmic ovules and monosporangiate thecae.
TLDR
The gynoecium in Emmotum was confirmed as pentamerous, and it was found that the ovules are bitegmic, which is almost unique in lamiids, and that the stamens have monosporangiate thecae, which also occurs in the closely related family Oncothecaceae, but is not known from any other Icacinaceae sensu lato so far.

Embryology of Phyllonoma (Phyllonomaceae, Aquifoliales): characteristics and character evolution
  • H. Tobe
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Plant Research
  • 2015
TLDR
Embryological evidence shows that distinct evolution has occurred in reproductive characters relating to pollination and seed dispersal in Phyllonoma, corroborates molecular and floral morphological evidence supporting the distinctness of Phyll onoma as a family and its sister-group relationship to East‒Asian Helwingiaceae. Expand
Nuclear phylogenomic analyses of asterids conflict with plastome trees and support novel relationships among major lineages.
TLDR
The results challenge several long-standing hypotheses of asterid relationships and have implications for morphological character evolution and for the importance of ancient whole-genome duplications in early asterid evolution. Expand

Floral structure of Cardiopteris (Cardiopteridaceae) with special emphasis on the gynoecium: systematic and evolutionary implications
  • H. Tobe
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Plant Research
  • 2011
TLDR
Comparisons with flowers of other genera of Cardiopteridaceae as well as the other families of Aquifoliales showed that the pseudomonomerous gynoecium is very likely a synapomorphy to support the sister-group relationship between CardiopTeridaceae and Stemonuraceae. Expand
Development of Inflorescences, Cupules, and Flowers in Amphipterygium and Comparison with Pistacia (Anacardiaceae)
TLDR
This study shows that each samaroid structure in Amphipterygium is a few‐flowered cyme and that the teeth at the entrance of the cupule are the subtending bracts of the flowers, and that both genera are wind pollinated and thus exhibit similar evolutionary trends. Expand
Flower and fruit characters in the early-divergent lamiid family Metteniusaceae, with particular reference to the evolution of pseudomonomery.
TLDR
This work examined the development of two of the primary diagnostic traits of Metteniusaceae, the moniliform anthers and the unilocular gynoecium, and proposed division of the complex processes leading to pseudomonomery into eight characters. Expand
Angiosperm ovules: diversity, development, evolution.
TLDR
The present review provides a synthetic treatment of several aspects of the sporophytic part of ovule diversity, development and evolution, based on extensive research on the vast original literature and on experience from my own comparative studies in a broad range of angiosperm clades. Expand
Floral development of Berberidopsis corallina: a crucial link in the evolution of flowers in the core Eudicots.
TLDR
The floral ontogeny of Berberidopsis provides support for the shift in floral bauplan as a transition of a spiral flower with a 2/5 phyllotaxis to pentamerous flowers with two perianth whorls, two stamen whorles and a single carpel whorl. Expand
Floral development of Berberidopsis corallina: a crucial link in the evolution of flowers in the core Eudicots.
TLDR
The floral ontogeny of Berberidopsis provides support for the shift in floral bauplan from the basal Eudicot to the core Eudicots as a transition of a spiral flower with a 2/5 phyllotaxis to pentamerous flowers with two perianth whorls, two stamen whorl and a single carpel whorL. Expand
Progress and problems in the assessment of flower morphology in higher-level systematics
TLDR
It appears that apomorphic features in the strict sense are less helpful to characterize larger clades than earlier assumed, and rather apomorphic tendencies of features are more useful at this level. Expand

TLDR
Maximum parsimony and Bayesian analyses using molecular data and combined anatomical-molecular data show that Icacinaceae s.str. Expand

TLDR
A revised and updated classification for the families of the flowering plants is provided and the use of bracketing families that could be included optionally in broader circumscriptions with other related families are expanded. Expand
