Examples

  • We evaluate early floral evolution in angiosperms by parsimony optimization of morphological characters on phylogenetic trees derived from morphological and molecular data.

  • No other conifer possesses this dual mechanism -- shooting roots from its base; a trait that is widespread amongst the more advanced race of trees called angiosperms (broadleaf trees) evolving some 80 million years after redwoods were born.

  • The family Rosaceae are all angiosperms, that is, flowering plants.

  • To date 125 species of angiosperms endemic to the Sierra Nevada have been counted.

  • The inferred chromosome numbers of these extinct species suggest that seven to nine is the primitive haploid chromosome number of angiosperms and that most angiosperms approximately 70 percent have polyploidy in their history.

  • Abstract: Three published estimates of the frequency of polyploidy in angiosperms 30 to 35 percent, 47 percent, and 70 to 80 percent were tested by estimating the genome size of extinct woody angiosperms with the use of fossil guard cell size as a proxy for cellular DNA content.

  • Far-sighted Paskutti saw the sled first, in a grove of angiosperms, parked on a sizable hummock that jutted into the swamp, away from the firmer mass of the jungle.

  • The evolution of nectaries in late Cretaceous flowers signals the beginning of the mutualism between hymenopterans and angiosperms.

    Pollination

  • Pollination in angiosperms and gymnosperms is the process that transfers pollen grains, which contain the male gametes (sperm) to where the female gamete (s) are contained within the carpel; [1] in gymnosperms the pollen is directly applied to the ovule itself.

    Pollination

  • The assosciation between beetles and angiosperms during the early Cretaceous period led to parallel radiations of angiosperms and insects into the late Cretaceous.
