A new species of the genus Birisia (Dicksoniaceae) from the lower–middle Albian deposits of Southern Primorye, Far East of Russia

A new fern Birisia mandshurica, sp. nov. (Dicksoniaceae) from the lower–middle Albian Frentsevka Formation of southern Primorye, Far East of Russia is described. This species is characterized by

Ovulate Cones of Schizolepidopsis ediae sp. nov. Provide Insights into the Evolution of Pinaceae

The phylogenetic relationships between extant Pinaceae and Schizolepidopsis suggest that seed wings evolved along the Pinaceae stem and not with the crown group and that, in combination with developmental genetic evidence, the simple ovuliferous scales of Pinaceae likely evolved from bilobed ovulified scales like those of Schizolespidopsis.

Early Cretaceous abietoid Pinaceae from Mongolia and the history of seed scale shedding.

The earliest and best-documented evidence of a "shedder" seed cone from the Aptian-Albian of Mongolia is described and the exquisite preservation of the trichomes in L. mellonae raises questions about their potential ecological function in the cones of fossil and living Pinaceae.

On the evolution of ectomycorrhizal fungi On the evolution of ectomycorrhizal

The evolution of ectomycorrhiza within fungi has evolved many times in different clades, and the rate of evolution has not varied much through time, but has varied between clades.



Pinaceae-like reproductive morphology in Schizolepidopsis canicularis sp. nov. from the Early Cretaceous (Aptian-Albian) of Mongolia.

Schizolepidopsis canicularis produced winged seeds that formed in a manner that is unique to Pinaceae among extant conifers, and may potentially help reconcile the appearance of the family in the fossil record with results based on phylogenetic analyses of molecular data.

A New Species of the Extinct Genus Schizolepis from the Jurassic Daohugou Flora, Inner Mongolia, China with Special Reference to the Fossil Diversity and Evolutionary Implications

Schizolepis daohugouensis sp. nov. is described from the Jurassic sediments of Daohugou flora, from Ningcheng County, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China. The female cone is slender, cylindrical

Plant remains from the Middle–Late Jurassic Daohugou site of the Yanliao Biota in Inner Mongolia, China

Abstract A late Middle–early Late Jurassic fossil plant assemblage recently excavated from two Callovian–Oxfordian sites in the vicinity of the Daohugou fossil locality in eastern Inner Mongolia,

Early Cretaceous angiosperms of the Soviet Union based on leaf and fruit remains

By the end of the Early Cretaceous angiosperms were already distinguished by their high state of morphological development judging by leaf form and systematic composition, and were widely spread occurring in regions of both temperate and warm humid climates.

New Schizolepis Fossils from the Early Cretaceous in Inner Mongolia, China and its Phylogenetic Position

Three Schizolepis species collected from the Lower Cretaceous layer of the Huolinhe Basin, Inner Mongolia, China are described. These fossils are Schizolepis longipetiolus Xu XH et Sun BN sp. nov.,

Brief history of the gymnosperms: classification, biodiversity, phytogeography and ecology

A global synthesis of gymnosperm families, fossil and extant, provides a new and distinctive perspective on the macroevolutionary biodiversity trends within this group through their 375 million-year

The Albian-Cenomanian flora of the Kukpowruk River, western North Slope, Alaska: stratigraphy, palaeofloristics, and plant communities

Cretaceous plant fossils were collected in the context of sedimentary facies at 34 localities along the Kukpowruk River, north-western Alaska. The river transects three mapped units: the

Cretaceous floras of chandler-colville region, alaska-stratigraphy and preliminary floristics

Field studies of the stratigraphy of Cretaceous plant-bearing beds were undertaken in the Chandler and Colville Rivers region of northern Alaska during the summers of 1964 and 1966. Florules were
