The family Angiopteridaceae has seven genera and nearly 145 species. All are tropical plants occurring in humid forests. Of the seven genera Marattia and Angiopteris are widely distributed. Angiopteris flourishesl in the tropical forests and is represented very well in the eastern hemisphere.

Plant - Plant - Evolution of seed plants and plant communities: A series of changes in the reproductive biology among some heterosporous plants during the Late Devonian overcame this environmental restriction and allowed them to colonize a much wider range of habitats. These changes also led to the evolution of seed plants. In seed plants, the megaspore is retained in the megasporangium and.This banner text can have markup. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.Angiosperm definition is - any of a class (Angiospermae) or division (Magnoliophyta) of vascular plants (such as magnolias, grasses, oaks, roses, and daisies) that have the ovules and seeds enclosed in an ovary, form the embryo and endosperm by double fertilization, and typically have each flower surrounded by a perianth composed of two sets of floral envelopes comprising the calyx and corolla.
The genera Angiopteris Mitchell and Viticella Mitchell. The genus Angiopteris Mitchell (1748) was re-named Ono- clea by Linnaeus (Diss. Nov. PI. Gen. prop. L. J. Chenon, p. 34, n. 1093, 1751), and the name Onoclea was retained by Lin-.Read More
Weak support exists for the placement of Angiopteris as sister to Equisetum and Adiantum, although this topology was also obtained in a combined analysis of rbcL and morphological characters (Pryer, Smith, and Skog 1995). Seed plants are clearly resolved as monophyletic, with moderate (MP) to strong (ML) support for a clade of extant gymnosperms. A clade of gnetophytes (Gnetum and Ephedra) and.Read More
Cyrtomium falcatum is a popular ornamental fern cultivated worldwide. Native to the Korean Peninsula, Japan, and Dokdo Island in the Sea of Japan, it is the only fern present on Dokdo Island. We isolated and characterized the chloroplast (cp) genome of C. falcatum, and compared it with those of closely related species. The genes trnV-GAC and trnV-GAU were found to be present within the cp.Read More

The subject is one which has the disadvantage of presupposing some knowledge of the geological history of the earth, and of the classification and structures of modern plants; and in order that all who may please to read the following pages may be placed, as nearly as possible, on the same level, this introductory chapter will be devoted to a short statement of the general facts of geological.Read More
Early branching events in the diversification of land plants and closely related algal lineages remain fundamental and unresolved questions in plant evolutionary biology. Accurate reconstructions of these relationships are critical for testing hypotheses of character evolution: for example, the origins of the embryo, vascular tissue, seeds, and flowers.Read More
Abstract. The diversity of pteridophytes from Hainan Island is discussed, with a brief introduction of their ecology, and distribution. Some problems of the taxonomy of Hainan pteridophytes are also pointed out with emphasis on future revision of some difficult groups.Read More
In his most recent classification, Iwatsuki (1990) reaffirmed his earlier opinion, placing Microtrichomanes as a synonym of Crepidomanes, but listing it pro parte as a synonym of Sphaerocionium. The species used in our analysis, T. taeniatum, is considered by Iwatsuki to be within Trichomanes s.l. and closely related to T. digitatum (the type of Microtrichomanes ).Read More
Ferns such as Angiopteris and Osmunda, as well as cycads and cycadophytes (Bennettitales: e.g. Pterophyllum; figure 3), were considered less likely for fully grown sauropods. Regardless of their poor energetic and nutritional content, Dodson ( 98 ) suggested the ubiquity of ferns means they probably formed a major component of herbivorous dinosaur diet.Read More
Light is a major environmental factor required for stomatal opening. Blue light ((BL)(1)) induces stomatal opening in higher plants as a signal under the photosynthetic active radiation. The stomatal (BL)(1) response is not present in the fern species of Polypodiopsida. The acquisition of a stomatal (BL)(1) response might provide competitive advantages in both the uptake of CO2 and prevention.Read More
