Carpel and ovule structure was comparatively studied in representatives of all eight families of the Laurales: Amborellaceae, Calycanthaceae, Chloranthaceae, Gomortegaceae,Hernandiaceae, Lauraceae, Monimiaceae, and Trimeniaceae. In all representatives the carpels are closed at anthesis. As in Magnoliales/winteroids, closure takes place in three different modes: (1) by postgenital fusion of the stylar (and ovarial) ventral slit (Calycanthaceae, Gomortegaceae, Lauraceae, Hernandiaceae); (2) by… 
Gynoecium diversity and systematics of the paleoherbs
TLDR
The results strongly support three pairs of families in sister group relationships, as suggested by studies based on other characters: Cabombaceae-Nymphaeaceae, Saururaceae-Piperaceae, and Lactoridaceae-Aristolochi Families, and Hydnoraceae-Rafflesiaceae to some extent.
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.
Gynoecium diversity and systematics of the basal eudicots
TLDR
Gynoecium and ovule structure was compared in representatives of the basal eudicots of Ranunculales, Proteales, and some families of the former «lower» hamamelids that have been moved to Saxifragales and incertae sedis to support the close relationship of Platanaceae and Proteaceae.
Gynoecium diversity and systematics in basal monocots
TLDR
Gynoecium structure supports the isolated position of Acoraceae as sister to all other monocots, and in an overall view, if compared with all other families,Acoraceae clearly shows the greatest similarities with Araceae.
Female flowers and systematic position of Picrodendraceae (Euphorbiaceae s.l., Malpighiales)
TLDR
Floral structure supports the close relationship of Picrodendraceae with Phyllanthaceae and Euphorbiaceae s.str.
Floral Phyllotaxis and Floral Architecture in Calycanthaceae (Laurales)
TLDR
A comparative study of floral phyllotaxis of calycanthaceous fossil flowers, comprising species of all four genera of the family, found spiral floral phytotaxis is spiral according to the Fibonacci pattern for all species studied.
Embryology of Hortonioideae and Monimioideae (Monimiaceae, Laurales): characteristics of the ‘lower’ monimioids
TLDR
It is likely that, while the shared successive cytokinesis during meiosis of microspore mother cells supports the Monimiaceae–Hernandiaceae–Lauraceae clade obtained by molecular evidence, no synapomorphies exist to support a sister-group relationship of Monimia, Palmeria and Peumus with Hernandi Families or Lauraceae.
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.
Embryology of Gomortegaceae (Laurales): characteristics and character evolution
TLDR
Comparisons with other Laurales and Magnoliales show that Gomortega has many embryological features in common with the other lauralean families, but appears to have no embryological autapomorphies, but further comparison with Atherospermataceae is required.

Gynoecium diversity and systematics of the Magnoliales and winteroids
TLDR
The results most strongly support an Annonaceae-Myristicaceae- canellaceae-Canellaceae alliance, to some degree also an Eupomatiaceae-Degeneriaceae-Himantandraceae-Magnoliaceae alliance and an Illiciaceae-Schisand raceae-Winteraceae-Austrobaileyaceae alliance.
The character states of the Caribbean monotypic endemic Strumpfia (Rubiaceae)
TLDR
Because of a) many unusual and, in part, unique features and b) the lack of detailed comparative data for neotropical Rubiaceae, the genus' subfamilial and tribal position remains obscure.
Studies in Lauraceae. III. Embryology of Cassytha
TLDR
The embryological evidence points to considerable similarity between Cassytha and other members of the Lauraceae and does not support the view thatCassytha should be moved from the Lauralid family to a separate unigeneric family.
Pollen morphology of the Amborellaceae and Hortoniaceae (Hortonioideae: Monimiaceae)
TLDR
Amborella trichopoda Baillon is a vesselless New Caledonian endemic in a family of its own and morphology supports the retention of the Amborellaceae as a separate family, within the Laurales.
Studies on the Monimiaceae. I. Floral morphology and gametophyte development of Hedycarya arborea J.R. et.G. Forst. (subfamily Monimioideae)
TLDR
Varying carpel vasculature suggests derivation of the uniovulate condition in Hedycarya from ancestors having multiovulate carpels with ovules in two rows, Floral ontogeny is described and it is noted that the terminal stigmatic region of the carpel develops from a solid terminal meristem, in contrast to many woody Ranales in which the stigma consists of crests surrounding theCarpel cleft.

Abstract Palmeria scandens F. Muell, and Wilkiea huegeliana (Tul.) A.DC., of the subfamily Monimioideae of the Monimiaceae, have small inaperturate (omniaperturate), apolar, radiosymmetric,
FLORAL ANATOMY OF IDIOSPERMUM AUSTRALIENSE (IDIOSPERMACEAE)
TLDR
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.
Lauraceous Flowers from the Potomac Group (Mid-Cretaceous) of Eastern North America
TLDR
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.
CLADISTICS OF THE MAGNOLIIDAE
TLDR
These results support many aspects of the strobilar‐flower hypothesis for the origin of the angiosperms, as well as the plesiomorphic character states of woody shrubs with simple, pinnatelyveined leaves.

TLDR
On the basis of floral anatomy, the wall of the inferior ovary of the family Combretaceae is considered as appendicular in nature and placentation is thought to be parietal.
