The first overall study of pericarp anatomy ofCoriaria is presented to discuss its evolution and relationships within a genus. All 14 species investigated (including 11 narrowly defined species) have somewhat bilaterally flattened mature fruits with five to seven (or more) longitudinal costae. They share a usually nine-(or more-)cell-layered (at intercostal region), stratified mature pericarp, which is basically constructed by an exocarp, an outer, a middle and an inner zone of mesocarp, and an…

Distribution and morpho-anatomical characterization of ‘Beket’ (Coriaria japonica subsp. intermedia (Matsum) T. C. Huanh) in Cordillera Central Range, Northern Philippines
Interesting findings of the study include the 123 populations, the larger leaf measurements, longer petals and larger fruits than the original description given by Matsumura, which could provide essential information for understanding the plant and for developing conservation strategies not just for this plant but also for the other related plants in the CCR biogeographical zone.
Floral Development and Morphoanatomy in the Holoparasitic Pilostyles boyacensis (Apodanthaceae, Cucurbitales) Reveal Chimeric Half-Staminate and Half-Carpellate Flowers
Chimeric half-staminate and half-carpellate flowers indicate a more labile sex determination in Apodanthaceae, whose flowers are often described as unisexual.
Morphoanatomy and ontogeny of fruit in Bromeliaceae species
Diversos caracteres uteis para a taxonomia de Bromeliaceae foram destacados, sendo os frutos otimas ferramentas para a delimitacao, principalmente, de generos e subfamilias.


Karyomorphology ofCoriaria (Coriariaceae): Taxonomic implications
Karyomorphology ofCoriaria, the only genus of the family which is controversial with respect to its affinities and the number of constituting species, is investigated on the basis of ten species representing nearly all the variation of the genus.
General aspects of angiosperm evolution and macrosystematics
It is concluded that pleiomerous flowers with helically arranged parts (corresponding to the Magnolia type, though probably less elaborate), on the basis of recent evidence can still be regarded as the probably earliest floral type in angiosperms.
Wood anatomy of Coriariaceae: phylogenetic and ecological implications
By the use of numerical indices as well as such indicators as helical thickening and presence of vascular tracheids, wood of Tremandraceae is shown to be highly xeromorphic.
The genus Coriaria (Coriariaceae) in the western Hemisphere.
This paper deals with taxonomic studies of the plants which occur in the Western Hemisphere and excludes close relatives on the other side of the Pacific Ocean, but these are excluded from considered here.
Proposed new realignments in the angiosperms
Our attempt at putatively phylogenetic classifications of Angiospermae, considering our vast ignorance of more than 120 million years of evolution of the class, must be very tentative and elastic to
A dictionary of the flowering plants and ferns
The entries attempt to cover all published generic names from 1753 onwards and published family names from1789, together with a number of supra- and infra-familial taxa where these have not been based on family or generic names.
