Premise of research. Fruits of Euphorbiaceae are identified from the late Cretaceous (late Maastrichtian) cherts of the Deccan Intertrappean Beds of central India. These fruits, along with previously described silicified woods, are among the oldest known representatives of this family. Methodology. Physical sections, anatomical peels, and micro–computed tomography scanning were used to study two tricarpellate euphorbiaceous fruit types in the Mohgaonkalan chert, each with schizocarpic… 



Morphology and anatomy of the angiosperm fruit Baccatocarpon, incertae sedis, from the Maastrichtian Deccan Intertrappean Beds of India

Distinctive permineralized fruits of Baccatocarpon mohgaoense (Paradkar & Dixit) comb.

Oldest fruits of the grape family (Vitaceae) from the Late Cretaceous Deccan cherts of India.

The presence of the oldest known vitaceous fossils in the latest Cretaceous of India indicates a previously undocumented Gondwanan history and a possible southern hemisphere origin for the Vitales, which might explain the relatively sudden appearance of diverse Vitaceae in the Late Paleocene and Early Eocene of the Northern Hemisphere.

Fossil Fruits and Seeds of Zingiberales from the Late Cretaceous–Early Cenozoic Deccan Intertrappean Beds of India

Premise of research. Fossil fruits and seeds of Zingiberales provide essential data on the past diversity and distribution of the order, augmenting our understanding of the evolutionary history of

Trilocular Palm Fruits from the Deccan Intertrappean Beds of India

Fossils of Palmocarpon drypeteoides indicate an early presence of Attaleinae in the Old World tropics and relatively rapid intercontinental dispersal in view of the hypothesized South American origin of the clade.

Morfoanatomia e ontogênese do pericarpo de Manihot caerulescens Pohl e M. tripartita Müll. Arg. (Euphorbiaceae)

The present work aimed to describe the morphology, anatomy and ontogeny of pericarp of the two species of Manihot, comparing themselves and relating structural aspects ofpericarp to the dehiscence.

Oldest fruit of Phyllanthaceae from the Deccan Intertrappean Beds of Singpur, Madhya Pradesh, India

Abstract A permineralized fruit from the latest Cretaceous of central India is recognized as a member of the malpighialean family Phyllanthaceae. The fruit is a tricarpellate, septicidal capsule 2.8

Fruits of Wetherellia and Palaeowetherellia (?Euphorbiaceae) from Eocene sediments in Virginia and Maryland

The Eocene sediments of southern Maryland and adjacent Virginia have yielded multilocular fruits assignable to the extinct generaWetherellia Bowerbank andPalaeowetherellia Chandler. This is the first

Structure and development of fruits and seeds of weed species of Euphorbiaceae

Euphorbiaceae s.l. presents several morphological types of fruits, of which the schizocarp is the most common, though there are some differences related to the outer epidermis of the ovaries, which is glabrous in E. graminea and hairy in the other species.

Ovules and seeds in Acalyphoideae (Euphorbiaceae): structure and systematic implications

Within the remaining genera of Acalyphoideae, a significant diversity is found in ovule and seed morphology with respect to the thickness of the inner and outer integument, the size of chalaza, vascularization of an outerIntegument and an aril.

Ovules and seeds in Euphorbioideae (Euphorbiaceae): structure and systematic implications

Anatomical similarities and dissimilarities presented in this paper, as well as relationships among taxa presented in the classifications available, will be critically evaluated in the light of results of ongoing molecular phylogenetic analyses.
