  author={Ksenia V. Domogatskaya and Alexei B. Herman},
  journal={Cretaceous Research},
Abstract A plant fossil assemblage recently recovered from two localities belonging to the Albian Balyktakh Formation in the lower reaches of the Tuor-Yuryakh River in Kotelnyi Island (New Siberian Islands) is studied in detail. A new conifer (family Pinaceae) species Schizolepidopsis borealis Domogatskaya et Herman, sp. nov. is described. The species possesses large loose racemose polysperms (seed cones) with deeply dissected bilobate seed scales. A close association of these female cones with…

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
Premise of research. The extinct conifer genus Schizolepidopsis is characterized by deeply bilobed ovuliferous scales bearing two adaxial seeds. Although it is frequently placed in Pinaceae, the
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.
The Late Cretaceous flora of the New Siberia Island (Arctic Russia): E. von Toll's and J.T. Schmalhausen's palaeobotanical heritage revisited
Abstract After Edouard von Toll discovered Late Cretaceous plant fossils on the southern coast of New Siberia Island (Arctic Russia) in 1886 and Schmalhausen described them in 1890, no further work


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,
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.,
Mid-Cretaceous floras and climate of the Russian high Arctic (Novosibirsk Islands, Northern Yakutiya)
Abstract Two mid-Cretaceous floras collected in terrigenous and volcaniclastic deposits of the Novosibirsk Islands in the Russian high Arctic were studied. These floras are the most poleward
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
Palaeoenvironment and ecology of the middle Cretaceous Grebenka flora of northeastern Asia
The Grebenka flora, from the main exposure of the Albian-Cenomanian Krivorechenskaya Formation in northeastern Russia, represents a range of plant communities from pioneer to mature forest that grew
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
