Abstract. Pollen morphology of the four subfamilies of Thymelaeaceae sensu Domke (1934) was examined using LM, SEM and TEM. The variation of the exine architecture allows to distinguish four pollen types and three subtypes. Distribution of pollen types proves to be widely correlated with the occurrence of characters from wood anatomy and flower morphology. If pollen types are connected with subfamilies sensu Domke (1934), Gonystyloideae, Thymelaeoideae and Synandrodaphnoideae are stenopalynous… Expand

The morphology and relationships of the Sphaerosepalaceae (Malvales)
TLDR
The extremely well-developed apical septum in the eusyncarpous gynoecium of Rhopalocarpus suggests that the gynoterminal style present in this genus has been secondarily derived from an ancestor with a fully syncarpous, basistylous gynaecium, as in Dialyceras. Expand
Origin and diversification of Thymelaea (Thymelaeaceae): inferences from a phylogenetic study based on ITS (rDNA) sequences
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses strongly support the monophyly of Thymelaea and the sister position of Daphne and reveal the polyphyletic character of Diarthron, sensu Tan, suggesting that Dendrostellera and Stelleropsis should be reinstated as independent genera. Expand
Solmsia Baill.: a taxonomic revision of an endemic New Caledonian genus of Thymelaeaceae
ABSTRACT The endemic New Caledonian Solmsia Baill. (Thymelaeaceae Juss.: Octolepidoideae Gilg) was founded in 1871 on two species, S. calophylla Baill. and S. chrysophylla Baill. Over the past 150Expand
New pollen genera and species from the Oligocene of northern Spain and a systematic, biostratigraphic and biogeographic re-evaluation of coeval taxa
The deposits of the As Pontes Basin in north-west Spain yield extraordinarily well-preserved microfloral assemblages that have unmatched diversity within the European Oligocene. The comprehensiveExpand
A PALYNOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION OF DAPHNE PAPYRACEA AND DAPHNE BHOLUA (THYMELAEACEAE) IN INDIA
The pollen grains of three putative relatives (Daphne bholua var. bholua, D. bholua var. glacialis, D. papyracea) were studied to explore micromorphological variation aimed at identifying novelExpand
An updated classification of the class Magnoliopsida (“Angiospermae”)
The present classification of extant flowering plants (Magnoliopsida) updates and revises those presented previously by bringing together the vast majority of new information published since 1999.Expand
Genome Size, Molecular Phylogeny, and Evolutionary History of the Tribe Aquilarieae (Thymelaeaceae), the Natural Source of Agarwood
TLDR
The estimated divergence time for Aquilarieae speciation was exposed, for the first time, and the estimated genome size was estimated, showing no large variation in the 2C-values for the five Aquilaria species. Expand
Short Communication: Taxonomy and the first report for pollen and leaf surfaces anatomy of the genus Enkleia (Thymelaeaceae) in Thailand
TLDR
Taxonomy and the first report for pollen and leaf surfaces anatomy of the genus Enkleia (Thymelaeaceae) in Thailand are revised and both species are recorded as synonym of E. malaccensis. Expand
Complete plastomes of six species of Wikstroemia (Thymelaeaceae) reveal paraphyly with the monotypic genus Stellera
TLDR
The plastome-based phylogenetic analysis inferred that Wikstroemia in its current state is paraphyletic to Stellera chamaejasme, while the ITS-based tree analyses could not properly resolve the phylogenetic relationship between StellERA andWikstroemia. Expand
Floral adaptations to nocturnal moth pollination in Diplomorpha (Thymelaeaceae)
TLDR
The present study is the first to examine the pollination system of Diplomorpha and suggests that these plants exhibit a range of floral features associated with pollination by nocturnal moths. Expand

Palynological studies of the thymelaeaceae of the cape flora
TLDR
The pollen of the four genera of the Thymelaeaceae occurring in the Cape Floristic Region was studied with the LM, SEM and TEM and polymorphism with regard to pollen size was found in some specimens of three of the Lachnaea species, but since it was not consistent for all the specimens of the three species concerned, the phenomenon of polymorphism is ascribed to temporary ecological conditions.

A Palynological Study of Crotonoideae (Euphorbiaceae)
TLDR
In both morphology and exine structure, the pollen of Crotonoideae closely resembles the (porate) pollen of Thymelaeaceae. Expand
POLLEN MORPHOLOGY AND THE RELATIONSHIPS OF AËTOXYLON, AMYXA, AND GONYSTYLUS TO THE THYMELAEACEAE
The pollen of three closely related genera, Aetoxylon, Amyxa, and Gonystylus is compared in SEM and TEM with that of Thymelaeaceae, s. s. The Thymelaeaceae have spherical, pantoporate grains with aExpand
Notes on the morphology and fine structure of the exine of some pollen types in dipterocarpaceae
Abstract The pollen morphology of nine species belonging to six genera of Dipterocarpaceae is described in detail with light, scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy, while additionalExpand
Morphological variation in Hawaiian Wikstroemia (Thymelaeaceae)
TLDR
The aim of this study was to test the morphological separate- ness of the species recognized by Peterson us- ing multivariate statistical techniques and methods and, if those species lacked distinctness, to determine whether distinct morphological taxa could be recognized in Ha- waiian Wikstroemia.

General aspects of angiosperm evolution and macrosystematics
TLDR
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. Expand
Circumscription of the Malvales and relationships to other Rosidae: evidence from rbcL sequence data.
TLDR
A two-step parsimony analysis on 125 rbcL sequences to clarify the composition of Malvales, to determine the relationships of some controversial families, and to identify the placement of the MalVales within Rosidae strongly support the monophyly of the core malvalean families. Expand
A revision of the genera Kelleria and Drapetes (Thymelaeaceae)
The generic delimitation of Kelleria Endlicher and Drapetes Banks ex Lamarck has remained controversial for 140 years. Data from taxonomic history, morphology and biogeography are reported here andExpand
Support for an expanded family concept of Malvaceae within a recircumscribed order Malvales: a combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL DNA sequences
TLDR
Sequence analyses of the plastid genes atp B and rbc L support an expanded order Malvales and propose to merge Sterculiaceae, Tiliaceae and Bombacaceae with Malvaceae and subdivide this enlarged family Malvoideae into nine subfamilies based on molecular, morphological, and biogeographical data.

STUDIES IN THE FLORAL MORPHOLOGY OF THE THYMELAEACEAE
TLDR
Whether a careful analysis of the vascular anatomy might reveal the exact morphological nature of certain structures, the petals or petaloid scales, found in the Thymelaeaceae, and whether the examination of these and other floral organs might produce data which would be of use in clarifying the taxonomic relationships of the family is investigated.
