The fertile segment has been variously interpreted. Here the petioles contain several concentric circles (as seen in transverse section), each circle composed of many individual leaf traces (Figure 9A). “Evolutionary morphology of ferns (Monilophytes),” in Annual Plant Reviews, Vol. (Y) Aglaomorpha meyeniana, hemidimorphic, with narrow distal pinnae fertile and base expanded for collecting fallen organic debris. Most ferns are leptosporangiate ferns… A colorless ventral lobe rests on the water and a thicker green dorsal lobe arches upward. Also unusual about Marsilea (and the other two genera of Marsileaceae, Pilularia, and Regnellidium) are its sporocarps, hardened bean-like structures that represent folded and marginally sealed pinnae containing the sori (Eames, 1936; Nagalingum et al., 2006).

Phylogeny of vascular plants. Philipp. doi: 10.1007/978-1-4419-7162-3_6, Townsley, B. T., and Sinha, N. R. (2012). After extending laterally, the pinnae come to rest on the surrounding vegetation, and the leaf apex resumes extension growth. The leaves of euphyllophytes have been called megaphylls (Gifford and Foster, 1988), and there are several competing theories regarding their evolution. One process involved the elongation of some of the branches more than others, producing a main central branch with subordinate lateral ones (overtopping). (1961). The ground tissue of the rhizome is composed of thick-walled parenchyma, and there is a peripheral sclerenchymatous sheath as well as … Leaves have been the center of many evolutionary and developmental studies, because they are the dominant, most conspicuous organs of most plants, including ferns.

However, nearly all ferns have extra-axillary branching, meaning that buds that will grow out as shoots may take various positional relationships with respect to the point of leaf insertion on the stem (Hagemann, 1989). Only this submerged leaf bears sori. Charact. Most seed plants (cycads excepted; Stevenson, 1990) have buds that form in the axils of the leaves as they are specified from the shoot apical meristem and can subsequently grow out as shoots (branches). Plant Biol. The experimental evidence indicates that similar signaling occurs between the shoot apex and leaf primordia in ferns, however, little is known about the molecular nature of these signals in ferns.

One exception to a mature bifacial leaf is Pilularia (Marsileaceae, water ferns), whose leaves are terete and unifacial. Two genera of ferns that have indeterminate leaves twining around a support are Salpichlaena (Blechnaceae) and Lygodium (Lygodiaceae, Figure 2H; Mueller, 1983a,b). These two forms of dimorphy have evolved many times among ferns (Wagner and Wagner, 1977). These results might suggest either the independent origin of megaphylls in ferns and seed plants, or may simply reflect the prolonged indeterminacy of fern leaves. In the filmy ferns (600 spp., Hymenophyllaceae), the laminae are one cell layer thick between the veins. Fahn, A.

Concerning the evolution of leaves, his telome theory proposed that megaphyll evolution involves three elementary processes that could occur independently of each other (Figure 4). Ferns General Characteristics. Leaf Divisions. These two genes have been used in comparative studies to better understand leaf evolution and development in vascular plants. The expression of Class III HD Zip genes have not been studied in ferns; however, there have been several studies of Class I KNOX gene expression in ferns. Many species of Nephrolepis (Nephrolepidaceae), particularly N. exaltata (Boston fern) and N. pendula, exhibit pendulous indeterminate leaves.

Bierhorst, D. W. (1977). In contrast, if the morphological phylogenetic hypotheses are accepted, then the leaves of ferns, Equisetaceae, Psilotaceae, and Ophioglossaceae are not necessarily homologous. This evidence, along with studies designed to understand the molecular genetic basis of fern leaf diversity will provide crucial data on leaf developmental pathways in ferns and allow us to refine existing hypotheses on fern leaf evolution. Curr. These three processes transformed the dichotomous, leafless, photosynthetic axes of the sporophyte of early Devonian plants into leaves (Zimmermann, 1930, 1952; Wilson, 1953; Stewart, 1964). These conflicts make the phylogenetic placement of the fossils equivocal, and therefore statements of leaf homology within ferns ambiguous. (E) Diplazium hians (Eupolypods II, Athyriaceae). J. Sci.

Among ferns, the few exceptions that lack chloroplasts in all epidermal cells are species that grow in full sun, such as high-canopy epiphytes (e.g., Elaphoglossum lingua, Dryopteridaceae) or on sunny rock faces (e.g., Notholaena affinis, Pteridaceae; Moran, pers.

One interpretation is that it develops from a single pinna or two fused pinnae so that the plant is composed of a leaf with a sterile portion that is proximal and a fertile portion that is distal (Chrysler, 1910, 1911). Just as the whole leaf is coiled in bud, so too are its subdivisions, the pinnae and pinnules. Fronds are usually composed of a leafy blade and petiole (leaf... Fiddleheads.

In contrast, morphological phylogenetic hypotheses that incorporate fossils and extant taxa place Equisetaceae, Psilotaceae, and Ophioglossaceae in different positions within the vascular plants, related to but not as part of the ferns (Rothwell, 1996, 1999; Stevenson and Loconte, 1996; Rothwell and Nixon, 2006).

The results of molecular genetic studies of KNOX/ARP in Osmunda and the KNOX regulatory network in compound-leaved angiosperms have brought the partial shoot theory of Agnes Arber back into discussions of leaf evolution and development (Arber, 1941; Barkoulas et al., 2007; Koenig et al., 2009).

In flowering plants, Class I KNOX genes are down-regulated while ARP genes are up-regulated in leaf primordia (reviewed in Floyd and Bowman, 2007, 2010; Hay and Tsiantis, 2010; Efroni et al., 2010). Integrating these different fields will not only shed light on fern leaf evolution and development and help refine hypotheses of fern leaf evolution, but also further our understanding of leaf evolution and development across the vascular plants.

Although some results showed that if I1 is isolated then it more likely develops as a bud, but in rare cases it developed as a leaf (Amer and Williams, 1957). The leaves of ferns are known as fronds. Yet unlike seed plants, Class I KNOX genes were not found to be down-regulated in leaf primordia. A frond consists of a stipe – the stalk that connects the frond to the rest of the fern – and the rachis – the part with any leafy tissue. Ecol.

The character differences maximize spore dispersal and minimize the metabolic cost of construction of fertile leaves (Moran, 1987). Another interpretation is that the fertile spike is derived from a shoot or a modified branch system so that the plant consists of an organ that is intermediate between a true leaf and a branch (Zimmermann, 1952; Wilson, 1953; Sen, 1968).

The “simple” structure of the leaves and the dichotomizing axes that constitute the entire plant, led several authors to relate Psilotum to the earliest vascular plants (Bower, 1935; Eames, 1936; Wilson, 1953; Rothwell, 1999). In Costa Rica, the leaves of Salpichlaena volubilis are generally 10–12 m long, whereas those of Lygodium venustum are usually 3–6 (Moran, pers. However, Wardlaw (1949b,d) concluded that initially leaf primordia and shoot buds of Dryopteris aristata are histologically indistinguishable. Ann. (E) Pyrrosia polydactyla, palmately lobed.

There has been recent interest in extending leaf evolutionary developmental studies to other species and lineages, particularly in lycophytes and ferns. Wardlaw, C. W. (1947). The dorsal surfaces of the floating leaves are covered by erect papillae. Microsurgery and sterile culture experiments also revealed that the SAM and developing leaves influence the developmental fate of leaf primordia. Can. doi: 10.1139/b69-010, Kuehnert, C. C. (1969c). Stems. These leaves arch over and touch the ground, placing the bud in contact with the soil. Ostrich Fern. A few species are known with 2–4 cell layers, but these species lack intercellular spaces and stomata (Copeland, 1938). These structures occur in Cystopteris protrusa (Cystopteridaceae) and Onoclea sensibilis (Onocleaceae). After shedding their spores, fertile leaves have completed their function and soon wilt. Microsurgery and sterile culture experiments demonstrated that the SAM does not require attached leaf primorida or leaves to continue the development of the adult shoot and therefore the SAM is capable of autonomous development.
