Herkogamy and dichogamy in style dimorphic flowers of Narcissus broussonetii (Amaryllidaceae)

Across the plant kingdom, there is an extraordinary diversity of flower forms, many of which are related to variation in the morphology and arrangement...

Floral nectar tubes in Pelargonium

Co-evolutionary matches between lengths of floral nectar tubes and pollinator proboscises is associated with speciation in several lineages, including Pelargonium (Geraniaceae), a genus renowned...

New insights into the evolution of the florally diverse Detarioid legumes

The Brazilian tree Goniorrhachis marginata is the only species of its genus in the bean family (Leguminosae) with striking flowers consisting of a long...

Tinkering with transcription factor networks for developmental robustness of Ranunculales flowers

Species within the Ranunculales bear flowers of formidable variation; for example, one can find novel floral organs and loss of floral organs, zygomorphic and...

The significance of developmental robustness for species diversity

Why some taxa are more species-rich than others still represents a major conundrum in biology. Ecological opportunities and evolutionary innovations are considered main factors...

Phyllotaxis in arabidopsis cuc2 cuc3 double mutants

In the cuc2 cuc3 double mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana the regular spiral Fibonacci phyllotaxis is disrupted and flower pedicels are fused to the inflorescence...

Phenotype instability modification by auxin inhibitors and 2,4-D

Based on the phenotypic instability observed in Barley, definite trends in the development of ectopic flower structures can be outlined.

Temperature and reproductive success in arabidopsis

Seed yield and dormancy status are key components of species fitness that are influenced by the maternal environment. Huang et al. grow the Arabidopsis thaliana...
