Phylogeny of Marsileaceous Ferns and Relationships of the Fossil Hydropteris pinnata Reconsidered
  • K. Pryer
  • Medicine, Biology
    International Journal of Plant Sciences
  • 1999
TLDR
The phylogeny of Marsileaceae is investigated here using information from morphology and rbcL sequence data, which resulted in two most‐parsimonious trees that differ only in the placement of the fossil Hydropteris.
Late Cretaceous Aquatic Plant World in Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
A reconstruction of the aquatic plant paleocommuniy is provided based on the distribution of the fossils along a freshwater horizon within the La Colonia Formation, constituting the first reconstruction of a Cretaceous aquatic habitat for southern South America.
New Observations and Synthesis of Paleogene Heterosporous Water Ferns
TLDR
There is a major turnover in water ferns across the Cretaceous-Paleogene transition, exemplified by recognition of freshwater ocean surfaces and widespread continental wetlands during the latest Early to earliest Middle Eocene in and around the Arctic and Nordic Seas.
The aquatic plants Salvinia (Salviniales) and Limnobiophyllum (Arales) from the Late Miocene flora of Sośnica (Poland)
Fossil free-floating aquatic plants of Salvinia mildeana Goeppert (a water fern of the Salviniales) and Limnobiophyllum expansum (Heer) Kvaček (Arales) are described from the Late Miocene of Sośnica,
Comparative Morphology of Reproductive Structures in Heterosporous Water Ferns and a Reevaluation of the Sporocarp
TLDR
Comparative morphological study reveals that all heterosporous ferns bear indusiate sori on a branched, nonlaminate structure that is referred to as the sorophore; this expanded definition highlights homology previously obscured by the use of different terms.
Erratum to: New marsileaceous fossils from the Late Cretaceous of South America and a reevaluation of Marsileaceaephyllum
Herein we report new macrofossils and associated microfossils representing the aquatic fern family Marsileaceae from the Campanian to Maastrichtian Cañadón del Irupé locality, La Colonia Formation,
Regnellites nagashimae gen. et sp. nov., the Oldest Macrofossil of Marsileaceae, from the Upper Jurassic to Lower Cretaceous of Western Japan
TLDR
A comparison between Regnellites and other heterosporous water fern genera indicates that the genus is distinct from the living and fossil genera of Marsileaceae.
Marsileaceae Sporocarps and Spores from the Late Cretaceous of Georgia, U.S.A.
TLDR
Comparison of the fossil sporocarps with those of four extant species of Marsileaceae reveal marked similarity with Regnellidium diphyllum Lindm.
Seafood Salad: A diverse latest Cretaceous flora from eastern Montana
Abstract The Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary (KPB) marks a mass extinction resulting in global biotic turnover. Exposures of the Hell Creek Formation in northeastern Montana contain some of the most

CYTOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF ANTHURIUM ANDRAEANUM (ARACEAE), ITS RELATED TAXA AND THEIR HYBRIDS
TLDR
Regular bivalent formation at prometaphase I of meiosis in pollen mother cells of species hybrids suggested close genomic relationships among parental taxa, and reduction of pollen fertility estimated by pollen stainability in those hybrids suggested genetic divergence of species.
A NEW SPECIES OF MARSILEA FROM THE DAKOTA FORMATION IN CENTRAL KANSAS
TLDR
A new fossil species from the Cenomanian of Kansas extends the megafossil record of the genus Marsilea back to the mid-Cretaceous when previously only megaspores attributed to the family occurred during this time.
Generic Classification of Modern North American Lycopodiaceae
Generic classification of North American Lycopodiaceae is analyzed in terms of the general factors that govern the recognition of the rank of genus, the character states that determine affinities,
Structural rearrangements of the chloroplast genome provide an important phylogenetic link in ferns.
TLDR
This chloroplast DNA structure provides unambiguous evidence that phylogenetically links families of ferns once thought to belong to different major evolutionary lineages.
Fossil Salvinia and Azolla from the Deccan Intertrappean beds of India
Abstract Permineralized sporocarps and vegetative parts resembling the extant leptosporangiate aquatic fern genus Salvinia are described from the Late Cretaceous Deccan Intertrappean locality at
Onoclea sensibilis in the Paleocene of North America, a dramatic example of structural and ecological stasis
TLDR
These data demonstrate that essentially modern onocleoid ferns had evolved by the Paleocene and that at least one species has remained virtually unchanged throughout the Cenozoic.

Worldwide stratigraphic occurrences of Mesozoic and tertiary megaspores
Abstract This paper presents data on the stratigraphic ranges of all known Mesozoic and Tertiary megaspores from around the world and demonstrates the potential of these palynomorphs for dating and
