For a further analysis of the active principles, you have to know the histoanatomic organ structure of the Melampyrum species. The Melampyrum cristatum L. and Melampyrum bihariense Kern species are plants belonging to the Romanian spontaneous flora. After comparative analyses made on the sepals and petals of the two Melampyrum species, there have been found the following: tector hairs, glandular hairs and a few stomata on the tracta epidermis, glandular hairs and tector hairs in the sepal elevation, and in the petal elevation the analysis indicates the presence of conic papilla and glandular hairs.

    The extant seed plants include more than 260,000 species that belong to five main lineages: angiosperms, conifers, cycads, Ginkgo, and gnetophytes. Despite tremendous effort using molecular data, phylogenetic relationships among these five lineages remain uncertain. Here, we provide the first...
