The results of these experiments were similar to the previous experiments that show that the older primordia have a leaf determination effect on P3 and that the determination effect appears to be mediated by a diffusible substance. In some species (e.g., S. auriculata and S. molesta, Figure 3H) these papillae have four hairs at their apices, the complete structure (papillae and hairs) resembling an egg-beater.

Even though there is no complete sequenced genome or functional model system for ferns, there is now a considerable amount of transcriptome data for ferns available through the 1 KP project (http://www.onekp.com/). In size alone they range from minute filmy plants only 1–1.2 cm (0.39–0.47 inch) tall to huge tree ferns 10 to 25 metres (30 to 80 feet) in height. Making leaves. 63, 2430–2438.

At the base of each leaf sheath is a node at which there is an intercalary meristem. If a shallow incision is made between an incipient leaf primordium and the apex of the SAM, then the primordium still develops as a leaf (Wardlaw, 1956). (A) Doryopteris nobilis, pedate laminae. Biol. The most common and widespread is the pinnate plan. Schneider, H., Smith, A., and Pryer, K. (2009). The evolution of plant development. For example, developmental genetic studies in ferns with diverse morphologies (e.g., simple vs. compound leaves) could provide the molecular basis for their morphological diversity. Fern leaves have extended indeterminacy, and some have indeterminate leaves (see Leaf indeterminacy section above). Ann. (I) Pteris ensiformis, holodimorphic, fertile leaf at left. Both families are further atypical in that a single vein runs to the base of the sporangium or synangium (Eames, 1936). (1952).

The ancestral developmental toolkit of land plants. pp. Scales can be persistent in mature leaves and may become smaller and reduced to uniseriate proscales toward the margins of the laminae (Moran, 1986). The terms applied to parts of a typical fern leaf differ sometimes from the ones applied to seed plant leaves; thus, it is helpful to review the terminology of a typical fern leaf (Figure 5).

The rhizome of Oleandra pistillaris and 0. wallichii is elongated (erect in the former, creeping in the latter), cylindrical, clothed with peltate, non-glandular, hairy paleae and bearing leaves in small clusters separated by long leafless portions. Auxin has been shown to effect the leaf complexity in the fern Marsilea as well as crozier development (Allsopp, 1952; Steeves and Briggs, 1960). Nature 164, 167–169. Lond. Many of the experimental studies on fern leaf development that we will discuss were performed on two different leptosporangiate fern species Dryopteris aristata (Dryopteridaceae) and Osmunda cinnamomea (Osmundaceae).

Plant Cell Physiol. Can. B Containing Papers Biol. Studies of Class I KNOX and Class III HD Zip expression have also been performed in lycophytes. Unlike most ferns that have leaves as the dominant organs of the plant, in Equisetum the stem is the dominant organ and performs most of the plant's photosynthesis. These processes may have occurred in various sequences in different groups of vascular plants. This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). Two criteria can be used to differentiate the leaf from the shoot in most vascular plants: determinacy and adaxial/abaxial polarity (Arber, 1941). In Dryopteris aristata, incisions were made to isolate incipient leaf primordia from the SAM and/or older primordia. A vast amount of fern research has been performed in the fields of paleobotany, morphology, development, and experimental biology. Iowa Acad. Also, in almost all tropical ferns with strong sterile-fertile leaf dimorphy, the fertile leaves tend to be shorter-lived than the sterile. The scientific name of ostrich fern is Matteuccia struthiopteris. Comparative studies of the Class I KNOX genes have been performed in the leptosporangiate ferns Anogramma chaerophylla (Pteridaceae), Ceratopteris richardii (Pteridaceae), and Osmunda regalis (Osmundaceae, Figure 3O), all of which have divided leaves (Bharathan et al., 2002; Harrison et al., 2005; Sano et al., 2005). Kenrick, P., and Crane, P. R. (1997). (A) Pteris aspercaulis, enlarged basal pinnules on basiscopic side of basal pinnae. Nature 409, 618–622. Although primarily for photosynthesis, fern leaves may also assume other tasks such as propagating the plant vegetatively by bulblets, harboring nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria, forming nests that collect humus falling from above, or efficiently dispersing spores. 56, 1982–1991. Ferns are seedless vascular plants of humid tropics and temperate areas. Kato, M., and Iwatsuki, K. (1991). Variations in leaf structure among Adiantum pedatum plants growing in a rock cavern. Brittonia 63, 233–244. In support of their results in lycophytes, Harrison et al. (1963). Kato, M. (1988). Most people probably envision ferns this way because, in fact, most fern leaves are highly divided. Adv. As in other vascular plants, the leaves of ferns are arranged in a fixed and predictive phyllotactic sequence around the shoot apex (Schoute, 1938; Gifford and Foster, 1988). In these cases the distal part of the leaf is represented by either a vestigial fiddlehead or necrotic tissue. Phenology is one area of fern leaf biology where field studies are greatly needed. Opin.

(F) Dipteris conjugata, lamina divided into two halves from top of petiole. A. Ambrose and M. D. Purugganan (John Wiley and Sons Ltd), 115–140. Plant Sci., 04 September 2013 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. Class I KNOX and Class III HD Zips genes have been well-studied across the flowering plants and to a lesser extent in gymnosperms (reviewed in Floyd and Bowman, 2007; Efroni et al., 2010; Floyd and Bowman, 2010; Hay and Tsiantis, 2010; Byrne, 2012; Townsley and Sinha, 2012; Yamaguchi et al., 2012). For instance, although they did not analyze ferns in detail, Kenrick and Crane (1997) considered modern ferns, sphenopsids, cladoxylopsids, and the Devonian genus Rhacophyton as part of the same clade (Figure 1). However, Rothwell (1996, 1999) separated living ferns from Rhacophyton and zygopterids, which he placed with lignophytes based on secondary growth. Bot. The Origin and Early Diversification of Land Plants: A Cladistic Study. doi: 10.1139/b78-237, Croxdale, J. G. (1979). (2005) suggested that this may reflect the ancestral role of the leaf developmental module of Class I KNOX and ARP in shoot branching, and that this module was recruited independently during leaf evolution in vascular plants. Here we discuss the theories of leaf evolution in ferns, morphology, and diversity of fern leaves, and experimental results of fern leaf development. Bot. R. Soc. Rojas-Alvarado, A. F. (2008). These controversies along with the phylogenetic position of ferns as sister to seed plants, and the fact that fern leaves display a great morphological diversity, make ferns a key plant lineage for comparative studies on how leaves and vascular plants evolved. Fern morphology . Sector analysis and predictive modelling reveal iterative shoot-like development in fern fronds. As an adaptation to their epiphytic life style, the drynarioid genera of Polypodiaceae have leaves modified for collecting organic debris that falls from above, mostly bits of bark and leaves (Hennipman and Roos, 1982; Janssen and Schneider, 2005). This is especially unknown for tropical ferns not limited by an unfavorable winter growing season and thus capable of producing leaves throughout the year. R. Soc. doi: 10.1016/j.pbi.2011.10.009. In most temperate-zone species of ferns, the rhizome is subterranean and has true roots attached to it. The Nephrolepis pendula complex (Lomariopsidaceae) in the Neotropics. KNOX homeobox genes potentially have similar function in both diploid unicellular and multicellular meristems, but not in haploid meristems. Maturation of the developing fern leaf is acroscopic, that is, toward the apex (Figure 5). In some fern microsurgery experiments where leaf primordia (P4-P9) were isolated from the SAM by incisions, some determinate leaves grew out that had near radial symmetry and buds in their axils (Wardlaw, 1945, 1947, 1949c; Cutter, 1954). The neotropical fern genus Olfersia. Although the former species is now classified in Arachniodes (Dryopteridaceae) and the latter in Osmundastrum (Osmundaceae), we will use here the older names employed by the researchers in the original developmental studies cited.

At the other extreme is, for instance, Trichomanes (Hymenophyllaceae, filmy ferns), whose petioles contain only one vascular bundle. B Biol. Wagner, W. H. Jr., and Johnson, D. M. (1983). doi: 10.1007/BF02489484, Imaichi, R. (1982). Yet fern leaves exhibit enormous diversity, especially in size, shape, and cutting (Figures 2, 3). Hairs develop from cell divisions of a single epidermal cell (Bower, 1923). These studies came to diametrically opposite conclusions about the conservation of a leaf developmental mechanism between microphylls and megaphylls (Harrison et al., 2005; Floyd and Bowman, 2006; Prigge and Clark, 2006). 13, 1–16. 168, 1–35.

Verdoorn (Hague: Martinus Nijhoff), 1–104. If all of the leaf primordia are removed from the SAM, then the incipient leaf primordium (I1) develops as a leaf (Hicks and Steeves, 1969; White, 1971). Philos. Arber considered the shoot to be the fundamental organ of the plant, and that all leaves are “partial shoots, and only partial shoots” because their indeterminate growth and radial symmetry are repressed (Arber, 1941). The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. K. R. Sporne. Also maximizing spore dispersal are the longer and more erect petioles that elevate the fertile lamina away from the substrate where the spores are more likely to be picked up by air currents.

With few exceptions, Eupolypods I have several vascular bundles, all circular in cross section, with the two adaxial ones enlarged (Figure 9F), whereas Eupolpods II have only two vascular bundles elongated in cross section (Figure 9E; Moran, pers. Not surprisingly divided fern leaves exhibit a great variety of architectures. These results suggest that a leaf determining signal comes from the SAM and that fern leaves are not determined as leaves immediately upon arising from the SAM. (1998).
