TitleObservations on Sporophyte Development in Odontoschisma prostratum (Hepaticae)
JournalMededelingen van het Botanisch Museum en Herbarium van de Rijksuniversiteit te Utrecht
AbstractAnatomical study of developmental stages of the sporophyte of living Odontoschisma prostratum (Sw.) Trev. revealed that the conspicuous swelling of the female branch during sporophyte development is correlated with a remarkably strong growth of the sporophyte foot. Thus, the enlargement of the female branch must not be looked upon as a “perigynium precursor.” The anatomy of the seta supplies new evidence for a close taxonomic relationship between Odontoschisma Dum. and Cladopodiella Buch.
