The floral vasculature in three allied genera,Plagiorhegma, Jeffersoria andAchyls is investigated, and the results are compared with those ofEpimedium andVancouveria which are related closely toPlagiorhegma andJeffersonia.The vasculature in the receptacle ofPlagiorhegma andJeffersonia is similar, but that ofAchlys is much simpler. Slightly different trace patterns are observed in the sepals ofPlagiorhegma andJeffersonia. InJeffersonia, the 3-trace condition leaving 2 or 3 gaps is most… 
The morphology and anatomy ofHydrastis (Ranunculales): Systematic reevaluation of the genus
It is suggested that Hydrastis is a relictual primitive group which diverged early from a common ancestral stock of Ranunculaceae, Berberidaceae and probably of Circaeasteraceae; at least some of the features shared byHydrastis and one or another of the families concerned seem to be a heritage from their common ancestor.
Clarification of the carpel number in Papaverales, Capparales, and Berberidaceae
Robert Brown’s classical theory, explaining the siliqua as a product of fusion of two transverse carpels with the valves being opercular structures and the septum formed of placental outgrowths, cannot be invalidated by any of the later theories.
Floral organogenesis in Dysosma versipellis (Berberidaceae) and its systematic implications
Scanning electron microscopy is used to study the floral development of the endemic Chinese species Dysosma versipellis (Hance) M. Cheng ex Ying, which was originally placed in Podophyllum and shows that the floral organs are all free and the sepals, petals, and stamens are initiated centripetally in successive and alternate trimerous pairs of whorls around a single carpel.

This latest revision of the classification and geography of the Dicotyledons is necessitated by the plethora of new information that has become available about the classification of the Angiospermae, especially in the currently popular approaches of cladistic, particulate, and molecular taxonomy.
Teixeiria lusitanica, a new fossil flower from the Early Cretaceous of Portugal with affinities to Ranunculales
A charcoalified fossil flower bud of a new genus and species (Teixeiria lusitanica) is described from the Early Cretaceous of Portugal and shows most affinities to members of Ranunculales.
Phylogeny of Berberidaceae based on sequences of the chloroplast gene ndhF
The ndhF tree indicates strong support for the sister group relationship between the morphologically distinctive genus N andina and the Caulophyllum group, which provides additional evidence for retaining Nandina within Berberidaceae.
Seed dormancy and germination in Jeffersonia dubia (Berberidaceae) as affected by temperature and gibberellic acid.
Based on the dormancy-breaking requirements, it is confirmed that the seeds have deep simple morphophysiological dormancy, which is similar to that of seeds of the eastern North American species J. diphylla.
Embryology of Jeffersonia dubia Baker et S. Moore (Berberidaceae) and comparison with allied genera
It is shown here how to identify the different types of tapetum using a magnifying glass:.


The purpose of this study is to describe the Vancouveria seed and its appendage in detail, and to relate appendage function to certain aspects of general structure, habit, evolution, and distribution of the genus.
