Seeds and embryos contained within the silicified ovuliferous cone Araucaria mirabilis from the Cerro Cuadrado petrified forest are described. One wingless seed, 0.8-1.3 cm in length and 0.2-0.6 cm in width, is embedded in each ovuliferous scale. Seeds show a three-layered integument and a...
Studies of Paleozoic Seed Ferns: Anatomy and Morphology of Morphology of Microspermopteris aphyllum.Download
The discovery of numerous specimens of the monostelic pteridosperm genus Microspermop- teris in Pennsylvanian coal ball petrifactions from the Lewis Creek and What Cheer localities provides additional information about the anatomical and morphological variability within the genus. Specimens are...
Reproductive biology of the Cerro Cuadrado (Jurassic) fossil conifers: Pararaucaria patagonica WielandDownload
Seventy-two silicified cone specimens of Pararaucaria patagonica Wieland from the Cerro Cuadrado (Jurassic) petrified forest in Patagonia were studied by use of thin sections and reflected light. Traces from the cone axis stele to the bract and ovuliferous scale are separate at their origins. In...
Light (about 3,000 foot-candles) neither increased nor decreased the sink strength of young, rapidly expanding leaves of Phaseolus vulgaris L. cv. Black Valentine, as measured by the comparative rates of import of 14C-labeled photosynthates by sink leaves in the light versus dark in short term...
Environmental variation is often a very important aspect in the ecology of organisms, with most populations experiencing at least seasonal fluctuations in resource availability and thus in their carrying capacity (Annegers 1973; Emmel 1976, chap. 10; Fleming and Hooker 1975; Fretwell 1972). A...
Bean plants, trimmed to a simplified “double source, double sink” translocation system (the paired primary leaves serving as the double source and the paired lateral leaflets of the immature first trifoliate leaf as the double sink) were used to study the magnitude and short-term time course of...
Fish assemblage structure, and factors and mechanisms appearing important in the ecological maintenance of these structures, were examined for 18 small lakes in northern Wisconsin during summer and winter. The study was focused around the following questions. Are there discrete, repeatable groups...
