Abstract

A method has been devised for the screening of the endothecium in flowering plants, principally with a view to describing the cell wall thickening. A scheme of nomenclature and coding has been proposed, which permits a more detailed and unambiguous recording of endothecial variety than was hitherto possible. There is some evidence that this structural variation could have taxonomic and phylogenetic significance.
