We investigated the sexual system, floral biology, sporogenesis, and gametogenesis of Tetradium daniellii (Bennett) Hartley, which possessed distinct male and monoecious sexual phenotypes. Male individuals produced almost exclusively male flowers. In the years 2000–2002, the protandrous monoecious individuals had male and female flowering phases completely separated in time within and between the plants, while in 2003 and 2004, slight overlap of male and female functions occurred. During early… 
Floral ontogeny of Ruteae (Rutaceae) and its systematic implications.
TLDR
Integrated morphological and anatomical evidence indicates that the bicarpellate gynoecium in Psilopeganum most likely evolved from a tetracarpellates ancestor, which may be Ruta-like.
Phylogenetic Relationships and Evolution of the Androecia in Ruteae (Rutaceae)
TLDR
The ancestral state reconstruction indicates this character can serve as a synapomorphy of the Ruteae-Aurantioideae clade, and shed light on the evolution of the androecium in Rutaceae, as the obdiplostemony of this group is clearly derived from haplostemoney in the ancestral genera in Rut Families and has develop into polyandry by increasing antepetalous stamens.
Systematics, Phylogenetics, and Reproductive Biology of Flemingites arcuatus sp. nov., an Exceptionally Preserved and Partially Reconstructed Carboniferous Arborescent Lycopsid
TLDR
Stratigraphic comparisons of the megafossils and spores restrict the likely age of the cobble from the Early Mississippian to the Middle Pennsylvanian, where the plants were deposited alongside univalve crustaceans in a swamp environment where preservation was probably enhanced by local volcanic activity.

Embryology of Harrisonia (Cneoroideae, Rutaceae): a comparison with related genera and families
TLDR
Embryological features of Harrisonia are reported based on published and newly obtained data and morphological corroboration for the molecular affinities of the genus and Cneoroideae is provided and it is shown that Harrisonia fits within Cneroideae through possessing campylotropous seeds with a multi-cell-layered endotesta.

TLDR
These findings provide support for aspects of all three theories, suggesting that the evolution of floral dimorphism is based on a complex interplay of factors.

The organogenesis of floral development in the dioecious clonal tree species Rhus hirta (Anacardiaceae) offers an excellent model system to study gender expression in dioecious plants. Pistillate and
Ontogeny of floral organs and morphology of floral apex in Phellodendron amurense (Rutaceae)
TLDR
Investigations indicated that P. amurense is hermaphroditic in its organisation and floral organs arise in all flowers during the early stages of development, and morphological evidence supports that Zanthoxylum, Tetradium and Phellodendron are related to one another in a linear sequence.
Male sterility, protogyny, and pollen-pistil interference in Plantago maritima (Plantaginaceae), a wind-pollinated, self-incompatible perennial.
TLDR
The genetical system of nucleocytoplasmic determination of gender is the main cause for maintenance of male sterility in P. maritima, and the evolution of unisexuality is not due to prefertilization sex allocation.

TLDR
The results support the existence of a trade‐off between male and female reproduction in Cucurbita foetidissima, and the observed difference in seed production alone is not great enough to explain the maintenance of females.
Experimental analysis of protogyny in Aquilegia canadensis (Ranunculaceae).
TLDR
The nature and functioning of dichogamy in eastern Ontario populations of Aquilegia canadensis, a highly selfing columbine previously described as protogynous, is investigated and protogyny did not reduce selfing.

TLDR
The objective of the study was to estimate the proportion of self-compatible and self-incompatible species in a sample of Rubiaceae from one community, and to determine the site in the pistil at which self-pollen is inhibited in the self- incompatible species.
