ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the flowering plant marsh marigold. It traces the background of the flower, which is part of the Ranunculaceae family and grows where frogs can be found like edges of streams, rivers, and ponds. The plant's name "marigold" was derived from Mary gold, which refers to the flowers' presence at church festivals devoted to the Virgin Mary during the Middle Ages. The unique features of the flower are cited, including the large amount of nectar it produces.

    Practical experience has shown that honey bees visit a tremendous variety of flowering plant species, both in terms of flower morphology and floral reward. However, their ability to find "nectar" extends far beyond plants themselves. They are in many respects the ultimate generalist forager,...

    Systematic affinities and taxonomical rank of Asteropyrum in the Ranunculaceae have been controversial. It has been placed in Coptidoideae, Thalictroideae, Ranunculoideae (incl. Helleboroideae), or sometimes in its own tribe or subtribe. Recent molecular phylogenetic studies, however, supported...

    Background and Aims The stigma, a structure which serves as a site for pollen receipt and germination, has been assumed to have evolved once, as a modification of carpels, in early angiosperms. Here it is shown that a functional stigma has evolved secondarily from modified tepals in some Albuca...
