COSTEA, MIHAI (Department of Botany, University of Agronomical Sciences, Bucharest, Romania) and DARLEEN DEMASON (Botany and Plant Sciences, University of California, Riverside, CA 92521). Stem morphology and anatomy in Amaranthus L. (Amaranthaceae) taxonomic-significance. J. Torrey Bot. Soc. 128: 254-281. 2001.-The range of variation within the genus Amaranthus L. (Amaranthaceae) is described for a number of stem characters including: morphology, epidermis, primary stem vasculature and… Expand
Comparative analysis of the anatomy of two populations of red-root amaranth (Amaranthus retroflexus L.)
TLDR
The results indicated high and very high significance of differences found in stem anatomy between the two analysed populations, while leaf anatomy was not found to display significant differences other than in mesophyll thickness. Expand
A New Species of Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae) from Salta, Argentina
TLDR
A new Argentinian species of Amaranthus L. Peláez (Amaranthaceae) is found in Andean puna and prepuna in both Salta and Jujuy provinces at altitudes between 2800 and 3775 m. Expand
Taxonomical observation on the grain amaranths and new varieties of Amaranthus cruentus (Amaranthaceae)
TLDR
The present study applied morphological and biochemical tools, and revealed a close affinity between A. hypochondriacus and A. caudatus, and a distinct divergence of A. cruentus from the others, in accordance with previous observations. Expand
Stem anatomy diversity in Iresine (Amaranthaceae s.l.): an ecological interpretation
TLDR
Canonical correlation analysis allowed to identify that mean annual temperature, longitude and annual rainfall have an impact in the wood of Iresine species, especially in vessel and fiber wall thickness, intervessel pit diameter and fiber length. Expand
Biology of Amaranths
TLDR
The combination of various anatomical characteristics of Amaranthus, such as Kranz anatomy, well developed root system, stomatal conductance, and maintenance of leaf area, results in increased efficiency of using CO2 under a wide range of temperatures, and higher light intensity and moisture stress environments which enables this plant to adapt under diverse geographic and environmental conditions. Expand
Root anatomy of some species of Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae) and formation of successive cambia
Abstract The root anatomy of 12 Amaranthus taxa (Amaranthaceae) was studied. The internal structures were evaluated as an anatomical character to clarify the taxonomic complexity in the genus.Expand
Comparative stem anatomy of Mirabilis (Nyctaginaceae)
TLDR
It is suggested that some stem anatomical characters are correlated with habit and that the vascular cylinder and pith characters are related to an increase in mechanical strength. Expand
Taxonomy and Phylogeny of Grain Amaranths
TLDR
Interrelationship between species as well as different morphotypes, varieties and landraces and phyletic linkage among them have been investigated and evaluated by many authors and a common inference that all grain amaranths have evolved from weed progenitor A. hybridus is yielded. Expand
Genetic diversity of leafy amaranth (Amaranthus tricolor L.) resources in Vietnam
TLDR
The STRUCTURE and FST analysis indicated a positive relationship between geographic distance and genetic differentiation among most of the overseas groups and the Vietnamese collection, but not among geographic groups within the VietnameseCollection. Expand
Domestication, phylogeny and taxonomic delimitation in underutilized grain Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae) – a status review
TLDR
The derivation of grain and vegetable amaranths represent two lines of descent from weed progenitor, and classification of the genus Amaranthus into three subgenera, based on morphological parameters, is quite acceptable. Expand

Anatomical and morphological studies in the Chenopodiaceae. II. Vascularization of the seedling
TLDR
It seems, in the light of this developmental study, that initially there are three separate systems of vascular tissues within the seedling, those of the epicotyl, the cotyledon, and the radicle, but further evidence is needed before a definite conclusion can be made. Expand
Medullary Bundle in Relation to Primary Vascular System in Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae
TLDR
Attention is called to the belief, based chiefly upon the wide distribution of medullary bundles among various dicotyledonous families, that this bundle arrangement has probably had an independent evolution in the various groups in which it is found. Expand
ANOMALOUS SECONDARY THICKENING IN PHYTOLACCA AMERICANA L. (PHYTOLACCACEAE)
Differentiation of the primary thickening meristem (PTM) was investigated in seedlings and older plants of Phytolacca americana L. Initiation of the PTM occurs in pericycle or inner cortex at theExpand
Secondary Growth in the Axis of Halogeton glomeratus (Bieb.) Meyer (Chenopodiaceae)
TLDR
The developmental processes leading to the structure of the secondary tissues in the axis of Halogeton glomeratus are studied and a high degree of evolutionary specialization is shown, based on the criteria of vessel element size, endwall inclination, and pitting. Expand

SummaryAllozyme studies in amaranth provided useful assays of genetic variation in order to verify the patterns inferred from morphological traits, for elucidating the genetic structure of landraces,Expand
Initiation and structure of the secondary vascular system in Phytolacca dioica (Phytolaccaceae)
TLDR
Phytolacca dioica (L.) is characterized by anomalous secondary thickening by means of supernumerary cambia, caused by a change in tissue response to stimuli produced by leaves. Expand
Anatomical and morphological studies in the Chenopodiaceae. III. The primary vascular system and nodal anatomy
TLDR
A study of the primary vascular system and nodal anatomy of 32 species of the family Chenopodiaoeae is reported, and the relationship between genera within each of these groups is discussed with reference to the vascular anatomy and other morphological features. Expand
THE ONTOGENY OF THE PRIMARY THICKENING MERISTEM OF ATRIPLEX HORTENSIS L. (CHENOPODIACEAE)
Seedlings of Atriplex hortensis were studied to ascertain; 1) in which organ the primary thickening meristem (PTM) first differentiates; 2) the direction of differentiation of the PTM, and 3) theExpand
Genetic diversity and relationships detected by isozyme and RAPD analysis of crop and wild species of Amaranthus
TLDR
A complementary approach using information from both isozymes and RAPDs was shown to generate more accurate estimates of genetic diversity, and of relationships within and among crop species and their wild relatives, than either data set alone. Expand
Primary Vascular Differentiation in Achyranthes aspera L.
TLDR
The procambial system of the embryo and the primary vascular differentiation in Achyranthes aspera L. have been studied and diagrams of trace relationship and reconstruction of the primary vasculature have been prepared. Expand
