  • Amborella
  • Although most studies show that Amborella and Nymphaeales are more basal than Austrobaileyales, and all three are more basal than the mesangiosperms, there is significant molecular evidence in favor of two different trees, one in which Amborella is sister to the rest of the angiosperms, and one in which a clade of Amborella and Nymphaeales is in this position. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2004). Amborella has carpels that are closed only by secretion, rather than by fused tissue as in most angiosperms (Endress and Igersheim, 2000b)-a feature that may represent a plesiomorphy (i.e., ancestral feature) for the angiosperms. (tolweb.org)
  • fossil
  • A study on the diversity of insect herbivory on fossil angiosperm leaves from the Miocene Hindon Maar fossil lagerstätte (Otago, New Zealand) is published by Möller et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • lineage
  • They diverged from the ancestral angiosperm lineage before the five groups comprising the mesangiosperms diverged from each other. (wikipedia.org)
  • The same lineage also gave rise to dung beetles, but they originated much later, and only after the mammals, including the even-toed ungulates (Artiodactyla) as the most important herbivores, had themselves started to use the angiosperms as their food source. (uni-protokolle.de)
  • evolution
  • Our results, when integrated with the ecophysiological evolution of early angiosperms, imply that the ecology of the earliest angiosperms is critical to understand the pre-Cretaceous evolution of flowering plants. (ingentaconnect.com)
  • The sequential evolution of angiosperm plants and their mammal herbivores was tracked by the evolution of beetles, shows a newly published study from the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig Leibniz Institute for Animal Biodiversity in Bonn and the Natural History Museum London in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. using DNA sequences. (uni-protokolle.de)
  • Instead, the evolution of angiosperm plants provided a new resource that first enabled the origins of herbivory in mammals and beetles, and secondary dung feeding among the scarab beetles. (uni-protokolle.de)
  • 2014 The evolution of scarab beetles tracks the sequential rise of angiosperms and mammals. (uni-protokolle.de)
  • usages
  • Consequently, there are almost as many different usages of terminology for apomixis in angiosperms as there are authors on the subject. (wikipedia.org)
  • suitable
  • It might thus be possible that the copious leaf litter produced by the angiosperms created highly suitable conditions for these beetles and their soil-dwelling larvae. (uni-protokolle.de)
