Phylogenomics and a revised tribal classification of subfamily Dipterocarpoideae (Dipterocarpaceae)

This study presents a comprehensive phylogenomic hypothesis for Dipterocarpoideae, based on the analyses of plastome and nuclear cistron (NRC) data, and provides an in-depth review on the validity of morphological characters underlying the new tribal classification proposed here for the subfamily.

A chromosome-level reference genome of the hazelnut, Corylus heterophylla Fisch

This genome resource will promote research on the molecular mechanisms of how the hazelnut responds to environmental stresses and serves as an important resource for genome-assisted improvement in cold and drought resistance of the Corylus genus.

ESI-MS/MS Analysis of Phenolic Compounds from Aeonium arboreum Leaf Extracts and Evaluation of their Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Activities

This study optimized extraction, separation, and analytical conditions using a high performance liquid chromatographic method coupled with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry by the negative mode in order to determine thirty-four compounds from Aeonium arboreum leaves, which can be considered as a potential source of biological active compounds.

Pollen morphology of the Balkan-Carpathian endemic Campanula lingulata Waldst. & Kit. (Campanulaceae)

Palynomorphological characteristics of Campanula lingulata, the Balkan-Carpathian endemic species growing in Serbia, have been investigated using light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy for

Creation and Carnivory in the Pitcher Plants of Nepenthaceae and Sarraceniaceae

To begin developing a creationist understanding of the origin of plant carnivory, this work focuses specifically on pitcher plants of Nepenthaceae and Sarraceniaceae because their popularity as cultivated curiosities has generated a literature resource amenable to baraminological analysis.

A taxonomic backbone for the global synthesis of species diversity in the angiosperm order Caryophyllales

A taxonomic backbone at the genus level is provided that reflects the current state of knowledge and accepts 749 genera for the Caryophyllales, a major lineage of flowering plants with approximately 12500 species in 39 families.

Phylogeny of Pedaliaceae and Martyniaceae and the Placement of Trapella in Plantaginaceae s. l.

The phylogeny indicates the three tribes of Pedaliaceae are monophyletic, but that Sesamum is not, and shows that the two families exhibit a combination of shared floral morphology due to their proximity in Lamiales, and convergent functional morphology for dispersal.

Phylogeny of the selected members of family Cornaceae as inferred from PCR-RFLP analysis of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) and internal transcribed spacer (ITS)

It is possible to conclude that big-bracted dogwoods are the most primitive member followed by the intermediates – the cornelian cherries, and the blue- or white-fruited dogwoods is the most advanced members, while the Aucuba clade is themost primitive in the family.

Itaquaquecetuba Formation, São Paulo basin, Brazil: new angiosperm components of Paleogene Taphoflora

The Itaquaquecetuba Formation, located in the Sao Paulo sedimentary basin, is one of the richest in Cenozoic plant fossils, allowing a detailed study of the flora which existed in that region, from the Paleogene to the Early Neogene.

Dormancy, germination requirements and storage behaviour of seeds of Convolvulaceae (Solanales) and evolutionary considerations

Physical dormancy of seeds in this family possibly evolved from a non-dormant recalcitrant seed-producing ancestor closely related to Erycibeae, which is reported to have combinational dormancy.

Synopsis The Lower Carboniferous fossil Calymmatotheca kidstoni Calder is shown to be a simple seed and is redescribed under the new name Genomosperma kidstoni. A second species G. latens is also

On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection: Or, The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

Charles Darwin's seminal formulation of the theory of evolution, "On the Origin of Species" continues to be as controversial today as when it was first published. This "Penguin Classics" edition
