Taking a close look at the mystery of the disappearing petals

How do flowers develop? This is a puzzle tackled by Wei Lai and Louis Ronse de Craene in their paper What is the nature...

Floral morphogenesis in Camptotheca

Camptotheca is endemic to China and there are limited data about the breeding system and morphogenesis of the flowers. Camptotheca is thought to be related to Nyssa and Davidia in Nyssaceae,...

Berberidopsis beckleri, floral development and evolution of the core eudicots

The floral development of Berberidopsis beckleri is compared with its sister species B. corallina to clarify the origins of the pentamerous pentacyclic flower of...

Robustness of floral organ numbers

Despite the contribution of phenotypic variation in floral morphologies to speciation, species diversity has been recognized by modal morphologies where variation is averaged out. Here...

Stochastic variation in Cardamine hirsuta petal number

Petal number is a robust trait in flowering plants. Crucifer flowers have four petals but Monniaux et al. show that petal number varies from...

Floral ontogeny and gene protein localization in mapaniid sedges

Poorly known, mapaniid sedges (Cyperaceae, subfamily Mapanioideae) possess unique floral forms, markedly different from stereotypical monocots, and the evolutionary issues of how or why...

How do you make a flower? Who cares? Hummingbirds.

El Ottra et al. conclude that the degree and diversity of fusions of floral organs in Galipeinae is unique within the order Sapindales.

Flower development in Balsaminaceae

Balsaminaceae consist of two genera, the monospecific Hydrocera and its species-rich sister Impatiens; however, morphological support for the current molecular phylogeny of Balsaminaceae is...

What creates Gentiana diversity in mountains?

The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is extremely rich in species, but why? One recent explanation is the mountain‐geobiodiversity hypothesis (MGH) by Mosbrugger et...

L-Cucumber’s leaf prototype mimics leaf shape of stressed plants.

How does variation in traits of Tunisian oak seeds affect survival?

Oaks are the dominant species of tree in many Mediterranean forests. However, the climate of the Mediterranean basin is predicted to change...

How Important Is Leaf Realism in Functional-Structural Plant Modelling?

Making a realistic plant in a computer model is possible, but is it necessary. All the computations generating the plant slow down...
