The course of vascular bundles and its developmental pattern in monocotyledons has been reinvestigated. This shows the existence of an "inner" and an "outer" vascular system. The inner system is more extensive, three-dimensionally very complex, and "open-ended" in a distal direction, i.e., centripetally toward the apical meristem The outer system is open-ended in basal and peripheral directions and usually, poorly developed. In many monocotyledons, it is represented by the fibrous bundles in… Expand
THE VASCULAR SYSTEM OF THE INFLORESCENCE AXIS OF ANDROPOGON GERARDII (GRAMINEAE) AND ITS BEARING ON CONCEPTS OF MONOCOTYLEDON VASCULAR TISSUE
TLDR
It appears that monocotyledons differ from dicotYledons only in the presence of independent inner and outer systems of vascular bundles in the former, and the hypothesis of Zimmermann and Tomlinson that there are basic differences between monocOTyledon and dicotin vascular systems is not substantiated. Expand
A new interpretation on vascular architecture of the cauline system in Commelinaceae (Commelinales)
TLDR
A previously unreported category of bundles is described in Commelinaceae for the first time, as well as the fact that peripheral bundles are not interrupted or end blindly in the periphery of the pith, as previously thought. Expand
Vascular patterns in stems of the Cyclanthaceae
TLDR
A survey was made of the distribution of stem vascular bundles in representatives of ten genera of the tropical monocotyledonous family Cyclanthaceae, showing that a distinctive pattern of organization of stem vasculature characterizes the cyclanthaceae. Expand
Early ontogeny defines the diversification of primary vascular bundle systems in angiosperms
Understanding vascular bundle systems in angiosperms is a challenge. On the one hand, the vascular tissue is extremely important in reconstructing the evolution and survivability of plants, but onExpand
THE ORGANIZATION OF THE VASCULAR SYSTEM IN THE STEMS OF THE NYMPHAEACEAE. III. VICTORIA AND EURYALE
TLDR
The vascular system in Victoria and Euryale is similar enough to Nymphaea to suggest that Nympholia, Victoria, and Eanceale form a natural taxon of unique angiosperms. Expand
COMPARATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF VASCULAR TISSUE PATTERNS IN THE SHOOT APEX OF FERNS
TLDR
The general conclusion of the current research is that what appear to be relatively simple and very similar mature stelar patterns with characteristic primary xylem maturation patterns are in reality much more diverse and complex. Expand
DEVELOPMENT OF THE STEM CONDUCTING TISSUES IN MONOCOTYLEDONS
TLDR
A detailed description of the mature axis and crown of the palm Rhapis excelsa is presented andontinuous protoxylem differentiation in the leaf-stem union, which seems universally present in vascular plants, is explicable in these same functional terms. Expand
THE ORGANIZATION OF THE VASCULAR SYSTEM IN THE STEMS OF THE NYMPHAEACEAE. II. NYMPHAEA SUBGENERA ANECPHYA, LOTOS, AND BRACHYCERAS
TLDR
The anatomy and organization of the stem vascular system was analyzed in representative taxa of Nymphaea (subgenera Anecphya, Lotos, and Brachyceras) and it was found that the structure of the vascular system in the investigated taxa is unique to angiosperms but similar to other subgenera ofNymphaea. Expand
Lateral meristems and stem thickening growth in monocotyledons
TLDR
To a greater or lesser extent in different taxa, the PTM is responsible for primary stem thickening, adventitious root production, and formation of linkages between stem, root and leaf vasculature, and the STM largely contributes to the body of the stem. Expand
The significance of apical meristems in the phylogeny of land plants
TLDR
Two evolutionary lines of land plants which may have originated separately as sporophytes from ancestors with no diploid generation are defined, giving support to the hypothesis that the sporophyte of these two groups arose independently. Expand

TLDR
The vascular system can be related entirely to leaf traces and, in the aerial shoots, is not complicated by a nodal plexus, “reseau radicifere”, or cortical system. Expand

TLDR
The evidence afforded by the vascular and floral structures indicates that Potamogseton is the most primitive genus of Potamogetonaceae, which shows more clearly than the other genera features characteristic of terrestrial life, though some of its species are apparently reduced forms. Expand

The Vascular Pattern of Festucoid Grass Axes, with Particular Reference to Nodal Plexi
TLDR
In festucoid grass shoots, seven principal strands enter the axis from each leaf, and each of these seven strands follows an identical course down the axis, penetrating the nodal region of the next oldest leaf and passing through the next internode before being "obstructed" by an equivalent strand in the regions of the second node below.
