form in acropetal succession. In symmetry the flower and its apical meristem are bilateral rather than radial, as in the flower of Drimys winteri. The floral apex of D. lanceolata is zonate while that of D. winteri is organized as a mantle and core. Preceding carpel initiation the floral apex of D. lanceolata is narrowly wedge-shaped, while that of D. winteri is low-convex. The entire apex is utilized in carpel initiation in D. lanceolata, involving many subsurface cell divisions over the… CONTINUE READING
