Achene macroand micromorphology and pericarp anatomy are described in four Polish species of Anemone (A. narcissiflora, A. nemorosa, A. ranunculoides, A. sylvestris). Biometric analysis showed that achene size varies greatly in all the studied species and is of limited diagnostic value. Three types of sculpture connected with the character of the indumentum were distinguished. The presence or absence of stomata on the achene style and the character of the hair base differentiated A. nemorosa… Expand

Achene Morphology and Anatomy of Clematis L. (Ranunculaceae) in Korea and Its Taxonomic Implications
TLDR
It is found that the size, indument, permanent style, surface sculpture, shape in cross-section, and nature and thickness of the exocarp, and endocarp were valuable achene features for species delimitation and may contribute to the unraveling of the taxonomic problems in the genus Clematis. Expand
Morphology of Anemone sylvestris L. flower (Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
The flower of A. sylvestris is an example for an intermediate form between entomophily and anemophily, i.e. a secondary and more advanced feature among Ranunculaceae, which is an adaptation that has coevolved to achieve effective pollination and successful fertilization. Expand
Seed coat stomata of several Iris species
TLDR
The diversity of the stomata distribution, shape, and state indicates some physiological significance that may be relevant for the formation of the seed, composition of the seeds coat, dormancy, and water uptake during germination. Expand

TLDR
Special attention was paid to new and additional essential morphological characters: shape of fruiting heads, fruits and carpels, and stamens, anastomosing veins on tepals, shape of caudices or rhizomes, monopodial or sympodial stems, involucral leaves (similar or dissimilar to basal leaves).

Taxonomic revision, phylogenetics and transcontinental distribution of Anemone section Anemone (Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
A critical morphological analysis of living populations and extensive herbarium material, together with karyological, cytogenetical and DNA-analytical data allow a discussion of the phylogenetic diversification and stepwise expansion of the section since the late Miocene. Expand
STOMATA ON SEEDS AND FRUITS OF BAUHINIA (LEGUMINOSAE: CAESALPINIOIDEAE)
TLDR
Seeds of 45 species of Bauhinia (Leguminosae: Caesalpinioideae) were studied by scanning electron microscopy and raised stomata with conspicuous subsidiary cells were found only on the outer pericarp surface. Expand
Stomata on the pericarp of species of the genus Rosa L. (Rosaceae)
TLDR
This is the first report of stomata on fruits of Rosa, which seem to be normal in appearance and usually few, scattered, mostly on the upper part of fruit, and open or closed. Expand
Ovule morphogenesis in Ranunculaceae and its systematic significance.
TLDR
Ovule morphogenesis characteristics are significant in classification at the levels of subfamilies and tribes and the initiation patterns of the integuments and the development of appendages show diversity in Ranunculaceae. Expand

This study clarifies the taxonomic status of Anemone coronaria and segregates the species and A. coronaria infraspecific variants using morphological and morphometric analyses. Principal componentExpand
Comparative analysis of biological and ecological differentiation of Anemone palmata L. (Ranunculaceae) in the western Mediterranean (France and Spain): an assessment of rarity and population persistence
TLDR
The biological and ecological characteristics of French populations are contrasted with those of populations from near the centre of the species distribution in east Spain, revealing that east Spanish plants are autotetraploid, whilst the French are all diploid. Expand
Multiple origins of Southern Hemisphere Anemone (Ranunculaceae) based on plastid and nuclear sequence data
TLDR
Using two molecular data sets, the plastid atpB-rbcL intergenic spacer region and the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer regions (ITS), the taxonomic affinities of two newly available Anemone species from the Southern Hemisphere were tested and strongly support A. tenuicaulis and A. antucensis.

STOMATA ON THE FRUITS AND SEEDS OF ESCHSCHOLZIA (PAPAVERACEAE)
TLDR
Preliminary results show that the total photosynthesis by the fruits and seeds of Eschscholzia californica together appears to at least balance respiratory losses, and under favorable conditions might significantly contribute to seed and fruit development. Expand
