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...
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...
Fatty acid composition of developing sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) berry and the transcriptome of the mature seedDownload
Background Sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) is a hardy, fruit-producing plant known historically for its medicinal and nutraceutical properties. The most recognized product of sea buckthorn is its fruit oil, composed of seed oil that is rich in essential fatty acids, linoleic (18∶2ω-6) and...
Environmental sustainability of post mined limestone quarries often requires reclamation to a diverse woody plant community. Woody species diversity may be severely limited if only nursery stock is relied on for propagation material; thus other sources must be evaluated. To address woody species...
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...
The middle Eocene Princeton chert locality in southern British Columbia, Canada, contains one of the best-preserved permineralized Tertiary floral assemblages known in North America. The quality of pres- ervation of the vascular plant and fungal remains is exquisite because anatomical and...
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...
