The observation that the flowers of Anemone nemorosa offer nectar to pollinating bee-flies (Bombylius major) prompted this investigation into the site of nectar secretion and nectary tissue. To allow comparison on a broader basis, other nectar-secreting pollen flowers of the Ranunculaceae and Magnolia (Magnoliaceae) were included in the analysis. The contradictory information available on the function of the mouthparts of bee-flies during nectar and pollen feeding motivated us to investigate… Expand
Comparative floral spur anatomy and nectar secretion in four representatives of Ranunculaceae
TLDR
It is concluded that the manner of nectar exudation may vary considerably between closely related plant species, regardless of their geographical origin and phylogeny. Expand
Nectary ultrastructure of Cabomba caroliniana Gray (Cabombaceae)
TLDR
The cellular ultrastructure indicates that the nectary is active during the two days of the anthesis of Cabomba caroliniana Gray, and agrees with the fact that in both anthesis days the fertile structures of the flower are disposed above the nECTaries. Expand
Transcriptomic and microstructural analyses in Liriodendron tulipifera Linn. reveal candidate genes involved in nectary development and nectar secretion
TLDR
Evaluated the nectary development and secretion processes comprehensively and identified many related candidate genes in L. tulipifera, suggesting that nectaries play important roles in flavonoid synthesis and petal color presentation. Expand
Flower morphology and development of the monotypic Chinese genus Anemoclema (Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
The results support the inclusion of Anemoclema within Anemoneae based on the floral developmental and morphological features: carpels bearing one median fertile ovule and two or three lateral sterile ovules, which support a close relationship to Clematis, which complement results from molecular inferences. Expand
Pollinators (Hymenoptera: Aculeata) of Adonis vernalis in Trans danubia (Hungary)
TLDR
The new results can be useful to have more complete knowledge on the biology and ecology of A. vernalis and can help to develop the conservation strategy of the species. Expand
Morphology, structure and ultrastructure of staminal nectary in Lamprocapnos (Fumarioideae, Papaveraceae)
TLDR
Investigating structural details of flowers and nectaries of Lamprocapnos spectabilis using LM, SEM and TEM shows that epidermis, hypodermis, secretory parenchyma, “Arber suggestive tissue (protophloem)”, and phloem act coordinately in nectar production, secretion and exudation in Lampro capnos. Expand
Diversity of petals in Berberidaceae: development, micromorphology, and structure of floral nectaries
TLDR
The results indicate that no common petal-stamen primordium exists, that petal development proceeds through five stages, and that the differentiation responsible for the diversity of the mature petals occurs during stage 4. Expand
Morphology of Anemone sylvestris L. flower (Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
The flower of A. sylvestris is an example for an intermediate form between entomophily and anemophily, i.e. a secondary and more advanced feature among Ranunculaceae, which is an adaptation that has coevolved to achieve effective pollination and successful fertilization. Expand
Floral organogenesis in Urophysa rockii, a rediscovered endangered and rare species of Ranunculaceae
TLDR
The floral development of Urophysa rockii Ulbrich, a recently rediscovered species in this genus, is studied using scanning electron microscopy and light microscopy to study the developmental sequence of the microspores in the stamens. Expand
Arabinogalactan proteins mark stigmatic receptivity in the protogynous flowers of Magnolia virginiana (Magnoliaceae).
TLDR
This first report of AGP presence in stigmatic tissues in a member of the magnoliids, together with recently described similar patterns in eudicots, monocots, and members of early-divergent lineages of flowering plants, suggests an ancient and widespread role for AGPs on stigmatic receptivity in angiosperms.

Development and interpretation of nectary organs in Ranunculaceae
TLDR
Genetical studies show that nectary organs in the Ranunculaceae are not peltate structures in the usual sense because they do not result from a continuous expansion of the margins of the primordium and subsequent fusion at the ventral side like in peltates leaves. Expand
Flies and concealed nectar sources: morphological innovations in the proboscis of Bombyliidae (Diptera)
TLDR
Bee-flies (Bombyliidae) have morphological adaptations of the mouthparts to particular floral traits, and the short, plesiomorphic proboscis of Hemipenthes morio was compared with the long, apomorphic proboscopeis of Bombylius major, which does not significantly differ from the plesiomorph state. Expand
Inflorescence and floral development in Ranunculus and three allied genera in Ranunculeae (Ranunculoideae, Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
This study confirms that, for solitary flowers, increased number of petals and the shape of the ventral nectary may have evolved independently many times, as suggested by earlier molecular phylogenetic studies and ancestral character reconstructions. Expand
Morphological and functional flower characteristics of New and Old World Annonaceae with respect to their mode of pollination
TLDR
The Annonaceae show a broader flower biological radiation than originally thought, with flowers being pollinated not only by beetles, but also by thrips, flies and even bees, while no dynastid-flower relationship has evolved in Asia and Australia. Expand
Floral development in Adonideae (Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
Floral development and floral phyllotaxis in species of Adonis, Callianthemum, and Trollius (Ranunculaceae) were studied with scanning electron microscopy and, at a lower level, Adonis and Callius are especially close but have different autapomorphies, which reflects the current classification of the genera.

Recruitment of CRABS CLAW to promote nectary development within the eudicot clade
TLDR
It is proposed that diverse nectaries in core eudicot species share conserved CRC gene regulation, and that derived nectary positions in eudicots have altered regulation of CRC. Expand
Floral Development in Asteropyrum (Ranunculaceae): Implications for Its Systematic Position
TLDR
The results indicated that the monotypic tribe Asteropyreae should be maintained, whereas the inclusion of Asteropyrum in Ranunculoideae is supported by several floral morphological and developmental characters. Expand
Floral development of Dichocarpum, Thalictrum, and Aquilegia (Thalictroideae, Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
The early developmental stages of the staminodes in A. yabeana are similar to that of stamens, so they may be phylogenetically homologous organs in Thalictroideae, and the similarity between the primordia of petals andStamens may indicate an evolutionary relationship between petal and stamen.

Nectar biodiversity: a short review
TLDR
This minireview is concerned mainly with floral nectaries and examines the following characteristics: position in flower; nectary structure; origin of carbohydrates, aminoacids and proteins; manner of exposure of nectar; site ofnectar presentation; volume and production of nect in time; sexual expression of flower and nECTary morphology; nectar composition and floral sexual expression; variability of nnectary composition; fate ofNectary and nectar biodiversity.

Floral Development in the Nymphaeales1
TLDR
Scanning electron microscope observations on Brasenia, Nuphar, Nymphaea, Ondinea, Victoria, and Euryale are added to the observations of earlier investigations to enhance understanding of early floral evolution and shifts in floral ontogeny and to contribute new data for improved cladistic analyses.
