Heterochronical trends promote labile floral strategies in Eugenia

Comparative ontogeny elucidates subtle changes in developmental rate, known as heterochrony, that discretely alter morphology between species. Vasconcelos et al. show how these trends...

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...

Floral structure and systematics in Malpighiales

The suprafamilial phylogenetic structure of Malpighiales, one of the largest orders of flowering plants, has been continuously improved over the past decade and the...

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...

How do you get more DNA down a pollen tube?

A common event for flowering plants is whole genome duplication (WGD), where a plant gets extra chromosomes. It’s often studied in mature...

Simulating the effects of local adaptation and life history on the ability of plants to track climate shifts

Local adaptation is common but not universal in plants and results from the interplay of gene flow with natural selection. Gene flow...

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...
