A Morphological Investigation of the Unusual Cryptogeal Germination Strategy of Bunya Pine (Araucaria bidwillii)-An Australian Rain Forest Conifer.Download
The morphology of the cryptogeal germination sequence of Araucaria bidwillii (bunya pine) was studied. Individual seeds were 5-6 cm in length and 2.5-3.5 cm in diameter and had an average fresh weight of ca. 16 g. In mature seeds the embryo consisted of a cotyledon tube, hypocotyl, and root cap...
Permineralized Fruits and Seeds from the Princeton Chert (Middle Eocene) of British Columbia: Araceae.Download
Some of the most conspicuous fruit and seed remains from the Middle Eocene Princeton chert locality (Allenby Formation) are assignable to the Araceae. Several thousand campylotropous, reniform, spiny seeds 2.5-3.2 mm long x 1.8-2.3 mm wide have been found dispersed in the chert. Two fruits, each...
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...
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...
