Article
Nelumbonaceae, along with Proteaceae and Platanaceae, comprise a sister clade to the family Sabiaceae in the order Proteales, although these families were previously not considered to be related. In this work, we investigated fruitlet development in Nelumbo with a special focus on the principal events of fruitlet ontogenesis and its pericarp histog...
Article
Representatives of three genera of Livistoninae (Johannesteijsmannia, Licuala and Pholidocarpus) develop corky-warted fruits in contrast to fruit with smooth surfaces in most other representatives of the ‘apocarpous clade’ of Arecaceae subfamily Coryphoideae. The present developmental study is focused on revealing the anatomical peculiarities of th...
Article
The fruits of the family Pandanaceae representatives (monocots: Pandanales) are studied insufficiently like in many groups of angiosperms. With the aim to reveal the peculiarities of histogenesis of the pericarp and to determine the most important characters of fruit structure of Pandanus, the unilocular diasporas of Pandanus polycephalus Lam. were...

The investigation of fruit morphology and pericarp anatomy of the genera Phyllospadix and Zostera from the Zosteraceae family enabled us to identify their fruit types based on fruit wall anatomical structure. Drupes of the Prunus type with lignified inner zone of the mesocarp and the endocarp are specific for Phyllospadix iwatensis, whereas in Zost...

Botanical museum of Fund greenhouse in Tsitsin Main Botanical Garden of Russian Science Academy wasfounded in 1953. The exposition represents botanical objects of tropical and subtropical plants, which were collected inexpeditions to different regions of the World and in the Fund Greenhouse. At the present time museum collection includesabout 500 p...
Article
The seed coat anatomy of Wollemia nobilis W. G. Jones, K. D. Hill et J. M. Allen was carried out. In theresult of analysis of transverse sections of seeds the sufficient parenchymatization of seed coats and their differentiationinto three morphogenetic zones – the exotesta, the mesotesta and the endotesta was revealed. Such characters of thespermod...
Article
The oldest representatives of Cymodoceaceae supposedly arose in the tropical waters of East Gondwana inCretaceous and later settled along the World Ocean by various tracks, the most important of which passed along the southern coast of Eurasian continental masses and reached the waters of modern Atlantic. More advanced genera Cymodocea,Syringodium...
Article
The Zosteraceae family probably originated in the waters corresponding to the present northern part of thePacific and dispersed from there along the northern and southern coasts of Eurasian landmasses, penetrating the waters ofthe Southern Hemisphere at least twice.
Article
The anatomy of pericarp of the mature fruit of Cardiocrinum cordatum (Thunb.) Makino was investigated.It was revealed, that the fruit of Cardiocrinum is a superior loculicidal capsule. The anatomy of its pericarp allow totreat the fruit as a transitional type of capsules between Lilium-type (the endocarp is lignified) and Galanthus-type (nolignific...

Morphological and anatomical fruit characters are used for description of morphogenetic fruit types within eight traditional fruit types – follicle, nutlet, drupe, berry, capsule, pyrenarium, amphisarca and nut, which describe the major diversity of fruits of all angiosperms. The traditional fruit types are representing levels of fruits organizatio...

Проведен молекулярно-генетический анализ трех семейств порядка Pandanales (Velloziaceae, Triuridaceae, Stemonaceae) по 4 генам. (atpA, atpB – for spacer atpB–rbcL, tRNA–Leu (trnL) – for spacer trnL–F, and 18SrRNA). Была получена молекулярно-генетическая кладограмма, на основе которой составлены картосхемы корреляции филогенетических связей родов ба...
Article
Проведено молекулярно-генетическое исследование (по трем генам) представителей трех семейств порядка Dioscoreales (Dioscoreaceae, Burmanniaceae, Nartheciaceae). Установлено, что местом гипотетического обособления порядка Dioscoreales является Юго-Восточная Азия. После чего, наиболее вероятно, Rajania (Dioscoreaceae) расселилась дальним транспортом...
Article
Premise of research. Fruit structure, in contrast to flower structure, has not been the subject of detailed comparative studies in many angiosperm lineages. This study focuses on fruit morphology, anatomy, and histology of the family Calycanthaceae (Laurales), including all genera: Calycanthus (including Sinocalycanthus), Chimonanthus, andIdiosperm...
Article
Based on morphological characters the monogeneric family Eupomatiaceae has been traditionally included in Magnoliales, closely related to Magnoliaceae, Himantandraceae or Annonaceae. This is well supported by molecular phylogenetic studies, and Eupomatiaceae appear strongly supported as sister to Annonaceae. Some specific characters of reproductive...

A complex cladistic analysis of molecular and morphological data of the Monimiaceae family is carried out. The hypothetic modes of the family dispersal are reconstructed basing on the data received for the studied representatives of the Monimiaceae family from all parts of the range and available fossils data. The family supposedly originated in Af...

RESUMEN En la actualidad se acepta mundialmente la reducción de todos los géneros de Magnolioideae (Magnoliaceae) a un único género Magnolia s.l. Al unificar las especies del género Talauma bajo Magnolia, las especie cubanas han sido arbitrariamente pasadas a la sinonimia de la única especie de este grupo que tenía un nombre válidamente publicado e...

The family supposedly orig...
Article
All Illicium spp. have explosive fruits, which is a unique character among the basal grade of angiosperms. Illicium fruits consist of several ventrally dehiscing follicles developing from conduplicate carpels, with a prominent, slightly postgenitally fused ventral slit. The closure of the ventral slit is also secured by two mirror‐symmetrical massi...

Nypa fruticans is a mangrove palm with current natural coastal distribution in the Old World tropics and hydrochorous fruit dispersal. Nypa comprises its own monotypic subfamily in Arecaceae, with high or moderate support of its sister position to other palms excluding Calamoideae or even sister to all other palms including Calamoideae. Apocarpous...
Article
The Malesian genus Eugeissona, with six species, is sister to all other Calamoideae, which are in turn sister to all other Arecaceae. The structure of its gynoecium and fruit is thus potentially of great interest in understanding gynoecium evolution in calamoid palms and in Arecaceae as a whole. The wall of the incompletely trilocular gynoecium of...

The Borasseae form a highly supported monophyletic clade in the Arecaceae-Coryphoideae. The fruits of Coryphoideae are small, drupaceous with specialized anatomical structure of the pericarp and berries. The large fruits of borassoid palms contain massive pyrenes, which develop from the middle zone of the mesocarp. The pericarp structure and mode o...

C.: A new subspecies of Magnolia virginiana (Magnoliaceae) from western Cuba [Novitiae florae cubensis 29]. — Willdenowia 38: 545-549. — ISSN 0511-9618; © 2008 BGBM Berlin-Dahlem. doi:10.3372/wi.38.38214 (available via http://dx.doi.org/) Magnolia virginiana was reported recently from the Ma...
Article
Fruit structure (anatomy) was studied in 27 species of 15 genera of Monimiaceae s.s. Almost all have apocarpous gynoecia, with the carpels more or less surrounded by a floral cup. The fruitlets are presented on the opened floral cup, which, depending on its pre- and post-floral development, differentially contributes to the attractive part of the m...
Article
The indehiscent fruitlets of the apparently basalmost extant angiosperm, Amborella trichopoda, have a pericarp that is differentiated into five zones, a thin one-cell-layered skin (exocarp), a thick fleshy zone of 25–35 cell layers (outer mesocarp), a thick, large-celled sclerenchymatous zone (unlignified) of 6–18 cell layers (middle mesocarp), a s...
Article
The anatomy and ultrastructure of seed envelopes of a New Caledonian endemic Austrotaxus spicata were examined for the first time. The systematic position and phylogenetic relations of Austrotaxus were analysed in light of these data. The structure of aril and spermoderm were investigated to demonstrate the similarities with Phyllocladus as well as...
Article
To analyse the status and phylogeny of the genusPhyllocladus,seeds of all seven species of the genus were studied. The complex of features of thePhyllocladusreproductive system point to the isolated position of the genus within the conifers. Relations with Podocarpaceae s. l., Taxaceae s. l. and Cephalotaxaceae appeared to be remote because a compl...
