Abstract Apical regions of developing aerial shoots of Psilotum nudum (L.) Beauv. were studied using both scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and light microscopy (LM) with the aim of improving our understanding of early stages in stomatal and epidermal ontogenesis. SEM samples were fixed in gluteraldehyde, critical point dried, and coated with an Au-Pd alloy. LM samples were fixed in FAA and embedded in paraffin. LM sections were stained with 0.05% toluidine blue for protein. SEM shows that P…

The remarkable stomata of horsetails (Equisetum): patterning, ultrastructure and development.
TLDR
Stomatal development in Equisetum is basipetal and sequential in strict linear cell files, in contrast with Psilotum, in which stomataldevelopment occurs acropetally, and several highly unusual developmental features include a well-defined series of asymmetric and symmetric mitoses.
The morphological and anatomical reinvestigation of the Psilotum nudum, in Hyrcanian forests, N Iran
Psilotum nudum is an ancestral epiphytic of the monilophytes which has been recently reported from Hyrcanian forests. It was already introduced as an epiphytic species from some patchy habitats in
Several developmental and morphogenetic factors govern the evolution of stomatal patterning in land plants.
We evaluate stomatal development in terms of its primary morphogenetic factors and place it in a phylogenetic context, including clarification of the contrasting specialist terms that are used by
The hornworts: important advancements in early land plant evolution
TLDR
The contentious position of hornworts in the global phylogeny of land plants, revolutionary findings on horizontal gene transfer, evolution of the peculiar Hornwort plastid, symbiotic relationships with fungal and cyanobacterial endophytes, and new insights on hornwort stomata and clefts in the gametophyte thallus are discussed.

STOMATAL PATTERNS IN EMBRYOPHYTES: THEIR EVOLUTION, ONTOGENY AND INTERPRETATION
TLDR
A new ontogenetic system of classification is introduced that makes primary subdivision on the basis of the mode of division of the guard mother cell with respect to the wall which cuts it from the meristemoid: diameristic, at right angles; parameristic, parallel to; and anomomeristic, without special orientation to the preceding wall.
Microtubule and actin filament organization during stomatal morphogenesis in the fernAsplenium nidus
SummaryThe newly-formed guard cell mother cells (GMCs) ofAsplenium nidus are small, lens-shaped and are formed by one or two asymmetrical divisions. Their growth axis is parallel to the plane of
The dynamics of the actin cytoskeleton during sporogenesis in Psilotum nudum L.
TLDR
It is observed that the actin cytoskeleton in meiotically dividing cells is not only part of the kariokinetic spindle and phragmoplast but it also forms a well-developed network in the cytoplasm present in all phases of meiosis.
Probable involvement of cytoskeleton in stomatal-pore formation inAsplenium nidus L.
TLDR
The observations show that the stomatal-pore formation in A. nidus is a unique process, which is probably restricted to ferns, and that the cortical cytoskeleton lining the ventral wall and particularly the microtubules are involved in this process.
Microtubule and actin filament organization during stomatal morphogenesis in the fern Asplenium nidus. II. Guard cells.
TLDR
The post-cytokinetic guard cells of Asplenium nidus display a prominent perinuclear microtubule system and a few microtubules under the periclinal walls, and it seems likely that the successivemicrotubule systems in guard cells are formed by putative micro Tubule organizing centres operating in a definite spatial and temporal succession.
Array and distribution of actin filaments in guard cells contribute to the determination of stomatal aperture
TLDR
The results revealed that the random array and even distribution of actin filaments in guard cells may be required for keeping the closed stomata; similarly, the ring-like array and cortical distribution ofActin Filaments function in sustaining open stomATA.
The role of cytoskeleton in stomata functioning
TLDR
Data gathered clearly suggest that the organization of CT elements is not a direct effect of stomata movements, and the availability of new CT visualization techniques and the usage of mutants to study this problem is a good perspective for further research.
Terminology and classification of stomata and stomatal development—a critical survey
The literature on terminology of stomata and stomatal development is reviewed and the terminology rationalized. The classification of developmental types and of the developing cells should not be
The origin and evolution of green algal and plant actins.
TLDR
Use of complete actin-coding regions in phylogenetic analyses provides support for the separation of angiosperm actins into two classes, and N-terminal "signature" sequence analyses support these groupings.
