Floral initiation and inflorescence architecture: a comparative view.
TLDR
This review aims to present a summarized view on what is known about floral initiation genes in different plants, particularly dicotyledonous species, and aim to emphasize their contribution to plant architecture. Expand
Biology, Ecology and Management of the Invasive Navua Sedge (Cyperus aromaticus)—A Global Review
TLDR
It is concluded that a better understanding of the interaction of its physiological processes, ecological patterns and genetic diversity across a range of conditions found in the invaded and native habitats will help to contribute to and provide more effective integrated management approaches for Navua sedge. Expand
What makes a fig: insights from a comparative analysis of inflorescence morphogenesis in Moraceae.
TLDR
The comparison of the inflorescence morphogenesis in Moraceae species allows us to infer that evolutionary ontogenetic changes driven by pollinators culminate in the enclosure of flowers inside the receptacle, as occurs in the Ficus syconium. Expand
Flower-like heads from flower-like meristems: pseudanthium development in Davidia involucrata (Nyssaceae)
TLDR
Pseudanthium development in D. involucrata confirms the morphogenetic similarity to FMs as to acropetal growth limitation, meristem expansion and fractionation, and should not be interpreted as a condensed inflorescence, but as a flower equivalent. Expand
Evolution and developmental genetics of floral display—A review of progress
TLDR
The recent progress on evo‐devo studies of floral display including floral symmetry, petal fusion, floral color, floral scent, and inflorescences is reviewed and the molecular genetic approaches applied are reviewed. Expand
Spikelet Structure in Cypereae (Cyperoideae-Cyperaceae)
TLDR
The existence of spikelets with convergent characters among the different taxa supports the inclusion of all this clade taxa within one wide genus Cyperus, just as the current phylogenetic hypotheses proposed for the group are proposed. Expand
Evolution of cyme architecture in Celastraceae
TLDR
The present study studied the architecture and developmental processes of the inflorescences of five species of Celastrus and Euonymus and found that the reduction of subtending leaves of the axillary dichasia on a developing flowering shoot made it become a terminal thyrsoid. Expand
Typical cyperoid reproductive structures in Lipocarpha humboldtiana and Ascolepis brasiliensis (Cypereae-Cyperoideae-Cyperaceae): new evidence from a development perspective
TLDR
Results show that the “hypogynous scales” simply represent vestigial structures derived from the reduction of typical cyperoid spikelets, rather than a perianth part or specialized formations emerging as evolutionary novelties. Expand
Inflorescence architecture in species of Fimbristylis (Cyperaceae) from Gujarat, India
Phylogenetic analyses based on morphological data remain scarce for family Cyperaceae due to its diverse and complex inflorescence. Fimbristylis s. s. possess several taxonomic problems due to theirExpand
PART OF A SPECIAL ISSUE ON INFLORESCENCES Towards an ontogenetic understanding of inflorescence diversity
TLDR
An ontogeny-based inflorescence concept is presented considering different meristem types and developmental pathways, illustrating the ontogenetic potential for character transformation in evolution. Expand

Metamerism, heterochrony, and inflorescence morphology of the Pithecellobium-complex (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae: Ingeae)
TLDR
The diverse inflorescence morphology of species in the Pithecellobium-complex is shown to be a result of the organization of the components of the inflorescence and their relative positions, and it is shown that the typological system of nomenclature of inflorescence leads to false assumptions of homology and therefore must be discarded.

The piperales and the monocots
TLDR
It is suggested that simple flowers, similar to those of the Chloranthaceae, came together by the loss of internodes to form the three-parted flowers of the Piperales and many monocots. Expand

TLDR
Floral asymmetry, another specialization, characterizes Labichea, expressed by dissimilar stamens, while the other genera have zygomorphic flowers, and Floral ontogenies are compared with other taxa of Cassieae. Expand
