Floral development and vasculature in Eriocaulon (Eriocaulaceae) provide insights into the evolution of Poales
Background and Aims: Floral developmental studies are crucial for understanding the evolution of floral structures and sexual systems in angiosperms. Within the monocot order Poales, both subfamilies of Eriocaulaceae have ...
Biologia floral em moranga (Cucurbita maxima Duch. var. Exposição)
(Editora da Universidade Estadual de Maringá - EDUEM, 2007)
In order to study pumpkin floral biology (Cucurbita maxima) var. Exposição, were conduced two tests, using 128 plants, in 2,000 m². The opening and the withering of the flowers happened, on average, 6p5 and 13h52, respectively. ...
Comparative floral morphology and anatomy of Thurniaceae, an early-diverging family in the cyperids (Poales, Monocotyledons)
Thurniaceae are positioned at the base of the cyperids, in Poales, as a sister group of Cyperaceae + Juncaceae. However, Rapateaceae + Mayacaceae have emerged related to these families in a recent phylogenetic study. ...
Evolutionary lability in floral ontogeny affects pollination biology in Trimezieae
Premise There is little direct evidence linking floral development and pollination biology in plants. We characterize both aspects in plain and ornamented flowers of Trimezieae (Iridaceae) to investigate how changes in ...
