Isoetes melanospora colony: Black-spored Quillwort
Lack of data on stomata in the Isoetopsida
Researchers looking for an interesting subject in the framework of studies on stomata may know that there are only a limited number of studies carried out on the Isoetopsida (Quillworts).
In our bibliographical lists we only mention:
Huisa E. K., Schafran P. (2016) – Analysis of morphological and anatomical characteristics of stomata of Isoetes hyemalis D. F. Brunt – Oral Paper Number: 0007 – Abstract ID:891 – http://www.botanyconference.org/engine/search/index.php?func=detail&aid=891 – (On our blog : https://plantstomata.wordpress.com/2016/11/02/stomata-in-isoetes-hyemalis-isoetopsida/)
Pant D. D., Mehra B. (1963) – Development of stomata in some fern allies – Vol. 30, B, No. 2 – http://www.dli.gov.in/rawdataupload/upload/insa/INSA_1/20005b76_92.pdf – (On our blog : https://plantstomata.wordpress.com/2016/08/31/development-of-stomata-in-isoetes-lycopodium-selaginella-and-equisetum/)
Rao A. R., Patankar T. B. V. (1980) – Studies on Isoetes sahyadriensis Mahabale. I. Ontogeny of stomata.- Geophytology 10. 1-4. [Bibl. Agric. 46 (1982) No. 049186]. (No abstract found – Who can send us one ?)
It would be nice if some colleagues could pick up this subject and enrich our knowledge.
