The order Asparagales is the largest of the five orders within Liliiflorea Asparagales commonly have Arum-type arbuscular mycorrhizae where the hyphae are intercellular, and also form coils, pelotons and particularly branched arbuscules within cells, while in Liliales these mycorrhizae are commonly Paris-type with intercellular hyphae that form coiled structures between the cells (F.
The order Asparagales is the largest of the five orders within Liliiflorea. One of the families within Asparagales recognized by Dahlgren and his co-workers was Asphodelaceae (Chase et al. (2000). Asphodelaceae consists of the sub-families, the Aspodeloideae and the Alooideae. The Alooideae consists of six genera of which Aloe is the largest.
Asparagales are the largest order of monocots (Chase et al., 1995, 2000, 2006) and, in APG III (2009), the number of families recognized has fallen from 26 to 14, still a large number, but one that is more manageable for teaching purposes. These also have at least some characters that can be used to recognize them (see below).Wandering through UBC Botanical Garden’s British Columbia Rainforest Garden on a foggy morning, I was struck by this western hemlock rising out of the mist. Tsuga heterophylla is one of the most common and economically important trees in my “neck of the woods”, and I am pleasantly surprised to be the first to write a Botany Photo of the Day entry for this beautiful species.The canonical telomere sequence of Asparagales is identical to that of rice with a deletion of T. We also addressed the propensity for nucleotide deletion or insertion among plants. The telomere of rice contained a nucleotide deletion or insertion at T in TTTAGGG ( fig. 4A ).
The “higher” Asparagales form a well-defined clade within the Asparagales, strongly supported by sequence analyses of five chloroplast genes (Chase et al., 1995, 1996) and by the derived trait of successive microsporogenesis (Dahlgren and Clifford, 1982). Economically important families in the higher Asparagales include the Alliaceae (chive, garlic, leek, and onion), Amaryllidaceae.Read More
This paper presents the results of a study on the knowledge and use of spices among women in the various stages of pregnancy (antenatal) and immediately after delivery (Postpartum). This was aimed at gathering baseline information on utilization of spices amongst various consumer groups in Ibadan, Oyo State. One hundred respondents (100) made up of women from both categories were interviewed in.Read More
The large succulent century plant (Agave americana L.) is generally thought to be an invader of ruderal land, however an infestation located at Clinton Conservation Park (Clinton CP), (north-eastern Yorke Peninsula, South Australia), is spreading through coastal shrubland, where removal by large machinery would cause soil erosion and habitat degradation.Read More
To ascertain the biochemical activity of newly identified RGS proteins, we chose representatives from a lycophyte (S. moellendorffii ), an early angiosperm (A. trichopoda ), a basal eudicot (A. caerulea ), a eudicot (A. thaliana ) and the monocot orders Poales (S. italica ) and Asparagales (A. vera ), for comparative biochemical analysis. These species roughly reflect the evolutionary.Read More

Scope. This review considers (1) racemose inflorescences of early-divergent and lilioid monocots and their possible relationship with other inflorescence types, (2) hypotheses on the morphogenetic significance of phyllomes surrounding developing flowers, (3) patterns of FSB reduction and (4) vascular patterns in the primary inflorescence axis and lateral pedicels.Read More
Floral structure and development of representatives of Asteliaceae, Blandfordiaceae, Boryaceae, Doryanthaceae, and Hypoxidaceae, all members of the 'lower' Asparagales, were studied comparatively. The results are discussed in the light of new molecular systematic studies, but also with regard to established morphological characters in related groups.Read More
