Vegetative Growth of Eorhiza arnoldii Robison and Person from the Middle Eocene Princeton Chert Locality of British Columbia.Download
Anatomical studies of several thousand specimens of Eorhiza arnoldii Robison and Person rhizomes and their attached organs have added significantly to our knowledge of these Middle Eocene, semiaquatic dicotyledonous plants from the Princeton chert. Anatomical structure of Eorhiza was studied...
More than 200 specimens of Limnobiophyllum scutatum (Dawson) Krassilov have been recovered from lacustrine claystones in the Paleocene Paskapoo Formation near Red Deer, Alberta. The plant was a floating, aquatic angiosperm with helically arranged, ovate leaves attached in small rosettes. Rosettes...
Aroid Seeds from the Middle Eocene Princeton Chert ( Keratosperma allenbyense , Araceae): Comparisons with Extant Lasioideae.Download
A reinvestigation of more than 200 new specimens of Keratosperma allenbyense Cevallos-Ferriz et Stockey from the Middle Eocene Princeton chert allows a more detailed comparison with living Araceae and provides evidence for the evolution of the lasioid clade. The anacampylotropous seeds possess a...
Cobbania corrugata (Lesquereux) comb. nov. (Araceae): A floating aquatic aroid from the Upper Cretaceous of western North AmericaDownload
The fossil record of aquatic flowering plants broadens our understanding of their former diversity and origins from terrestrial ancestors. This paper describes a floating aquatic monocot from 71 whole plants and several isolated leaf fragments from Upper Cretaceous oxbow lake sediments in the...
