THE first edition of this work appeared in 1901, and during the decade that has elapsed since, important advances have been made in the investigation of many groups in the vegetable kingdom, more especially in the Schizophyta and the Gymnospermæ. The first part comprises the Cryptogams and Gymnosperms, preceded by a general introduction of some fifty pages, in which the more recent discoveries and theories are discussed, explained, or mentioned. As the title indicates, the work is entirely… 

Cytological Investigations on the Indian Compositae VI. Chromosomes and evolutionary phylogeny

TLDR
The probable evolutionary phylogeny of Compositae, the relationships of its various tribes and the mechanisms of its cytological evolution are discussed, which are the highest in the scale of evolution among the Angiosperms and one of the four largest.

Antheridial Dehiscence in the Polypodiaceae

TLDR
The morphological aspect of the problem was first considered and investigation of living material made, and Microchemical studies were later attempted, in an effort to explain more fully the mechanism of dehiscence.

Wood Anatomy of Byblidaceae

TLDR
Byblidaceae, as recognized here, consists of two species endemic to Australia, Byblis gigantea and B. liniflora, which are consistent with relationship to Roridulaceae as well as placement in orders variously recognized by phylogenists as Rosales and Pittosporales.

THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS OF CONIFERS AND TAXADS

TLDR
The present article deals with the later history of the morphology of the female conifer cones, and finds that the Palaeozoic cordaites and conifers furnished the principal clue to the interpretation of the true conifer cone of Mesozoic and more recent age.

Sporogenesis and Prothallial Development in Ceratopteris thalictroides

TLDR
Since the chromosome number is different from that reported by some authors, it is suggested that there are many ecotypes of the species, and the variable number of androcytes in the antheridia is perhaps also indicative of this.

THE PROTECTION OF THE OVULES IN FLOWERING PLANTS

TLDR
This trend has been carried still further presented suggests that flowers which are in the angiosperms with the enclosure of probed by the bill of a bird or the chew the ovule within the folded foliar organ ing jaws of a beetle have evolved more upon which it is borne.

Presence Of Nemathecia In Parachaetetes Asvapatii Pia, 1936 (Rhodophyta, Gigartinales?): Reproduction In ‘Solenoporaceans’ Revisited

TLDR
Detailed analysis of Late Cretaceous–Eocene material from Turkey has revealed nemathecia-like structures in one specimen attributable to P. asvapatii, which leads us to tentatively refer the species and related species to the Gigartinales.

Othenio Abel (1875–1946) and “the phylogeny of the parts” 1

TLDR
Othenio Abel highlighted Louis Dollo’s principle of the chevauchement des spécialisations (crossing of specializations), which transformed phylogenetics from a search for ancestor–descendant sequences to research into relative degrees of relationships.

Floral Morphology of Some Members of the Simaroubaceae

TLDR
Because the flowers are primitive, it is suggested that the Simaroubaceae might have been derived from a primitive woody group closely related to the Ranales.

Wide Scene on Halophytes

  • W. Taia
  • Environmental Science
    International Journal of Contemporary Research and Review
  • 2020
TLDR
This work high lighting the taxonomic revision of genus Salsola as one of the most important halophytic genus within the Chenopodiaceae with the indication of the main angiosperm families containing each category.
