We compiled cone volume data from 72 extant Cupressaceae species, with detailed cone and seed mass measurements from 19. They are involved in many regulatory processes, such as primary and secondary metabolism, cell fate and identity, developmental processes, and responses to biotic and abiotic stresses. We measured seven floral traits in 93 adult trees representing three varieties of M. polymorpha in a common garden on the island of Hawaii and examined variation in these traits across elevations (of the source population) and varieties. We also reported the volume and concentration of sugar in the nectar drops of these flowers under natural conditions. We assembled a nucleotide matrix of the MYB domain and conducted maximum likelihood analyses to infer phylogenetic relationships and gene-tree reconciliation analyses to infer gene duplications. The lower SAS observed in var. In addition, we searched transcriptome sequences of selected fern and lycophyte transcriptomes. Stigma-anther separation (SAS) was significantly lower in var. Basal polypod ferns can be linked to Cyathidites spores in the northern Great Plains, perhaps because of a latitudinal climatic gradient. Methodology. Much of the variation observed in floral traits was partitioned among the three varieties in the garden. The perianth consists of three thick sepal-like tepals in an outer whorl and six thinner petallike tepals in two inner whorls. We welcome Research articles, Review articles and … Integrating this new knowledge about the hyperorgan will be essential for future research in taxonomy, evo-devo, and pollination ecology in Delphinieae. The androecium consists of several whorls of stamens with long, broad filaments and anthers with extrorse dehiscence. The Journal of Plant Research is an international publication that gathers and disseminates fundamental knowledge in all areas of plant sciences. The Delphinieae flower includes nested spurs and nested floral parlors. Editors and Publisher will accomplish the peer review process. Methodology. March 2010, issue 2. The International Journal of Plant Sciences has a distinguished history of publishing research in the plant sciences since 1875. Subject areas suitable for publication include, but are not limited to the following fields: Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement. These results could explain taxonomic inversion in the dual-phase fern spore spike between western North America and New Zealand. Methodology. incana, while long flowers and smaller inflorescences characterized var. Editorial board of the Journal of Plant Studies consisting of selected, experts in the scholarly field. International Journal of Biosciences is a globally known ISI journal with high impact factor & cross reference indexed journal that publishes high quality original research papers together with review articles and short communication on Biology, Plant & Animal Sciences, Molecular biology & Genetics, Biotechnology & … Our results provide the phylogenetic context for research on the genetic and functional evolution of an important gene family of developmental and metabolic regulators across the plant tree of life. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their Reviews/Rebuttal form to the Editor and Publisher. To better understand the evolution of R2R3-MYB genes in land plants, we surveyed the R2R3-MYB gene sequences from six genomes belonging to the main lineages of land plants (bryophytes, lycophytes, ferns, angiosperms, and gymnosperms). institutional full-run subscription rates. Methodology. glaberrima had the least distinct flowers. We aimed to determine whether the floral variation observed in natural populations is heritable and how this variation is distributed across environments and varieties of the species. Premise of research. We observed a distinct floral morphology in the high-elevation var. Including the JPR Symposium on Leaf Development and Evolution. incana may be consistent with weaker selection against self-pollination in low-density populations of this early-successional variety on new lava flows. We explore the relationship between serotiny and reproductive morphology in the Cupressaceae conifer clade, asking whether serotiny is associated with the evolution of larger, more protective seed cones. Bat-pollinated flowers have wide morphologies and produce copious and diluted nectar that commonly spills from flowers. A comprehensive list of the most common fern megafossils collected from earliest Danian plant localities across western North America was compiled to determine the number and potential identity of Cyathidites-producing ferns. Premise of research. Pollen is trichotomocolpate and possibly monocolpate. International Journal of Plant Biology & Research. It is peer-reviewed journal publish papers of high quality, original, theoretical, experimental and technical contributions which may be in the form The journal's articles appear in a wide range of abstracting and indexing databases, and are covered by numerous other services, as given in the full list below. Most of the well-supported clades recovered are inferred to be already present in the ancestor of land plants. International Journal of Applied Research on Medicinal Plants also establishes a colloquium at national and international level by bringing the researchers across the globe under one … International Journal of Applied Research on Medicinal Plants is an online peer-reviewed open access journal which covers all the aspects of the current techniques and practices involved in the medicinal and aromatic plants. IJPS publishes nine issues per year and regularly features special issues on topics of particular interest, including new and exciting research originally presented at major botanical conferences. Considering seed cone size and branching architecture together, however, may allow for the interpretation of serotiny in the conifer fossil record. Floral synorganization is a structural feature of many speciose angiosperm taxa and is considered a morphological innovation paving the way for evolutionary diversification.

BSc and MSc (Bangladesh), MSc (Sweden), PhD (Australia) Email: ijb@innspub.net. VEGETOS: An International Journal of Plant Research is being published since 1988. Agricultural Research Service . Arborescent ferns were not among the first plants in western North America to thrive in the immediate wake of ecological collapse at the K/Pg boundary. In addition to full-length research papers, IJPS publishes review articles, including the open access Coulter Reviews, rapid communications, and perspectives. Read the latest issue. Depending on the plant species, higher sugar concentration can improve nectar retention, reduce it, or even present intermediate values that enable the retention of larger nectar volumes. January 2010, issue 1. Brief comments and letters to the editor contributing to the previously published articles are also welcomed. To detect reported as well as new conserved motifs, we ran protein motif analyses through MEME. A Journal for Research and Investigation of Poisonous Plants . Edward B. Knipling, Administrator . Pivotal results. Premise of research. Topics covered range from genetics and genomics, developmental and cell biology, biochemistry and … About. Catherine E. Woteki, Under Secretary . Tropical Plant Research is an International, Open Access, Triannual, Peer Reviewed Journal by the Society for Tropical Plant Research. Serotiny has likely evolved five times within extant Cupressaceae, and each time it is correlated with the evolution of larger seed cones. Analyses of this material provide a more direct basis for inferring floral structure and biology in early angiosperms than extrapolations based solely on extant taxa, and they have documented an unanticipated diversity of angiosperms, including the presence of many extinct forms, during the Early Cretaceous. Although the group is famous for its ecological amplitude and variation in vegetative characters, little attention has been paid to variation in its “shaving brush” flowers, which occur in inflorescences of diverse sizes and colors.
