Armstrong and Armstrong (2009) found the first clear case of substantial pressurized ventilation in a nonflowering plant
, Equisetum telmateia.
For example, if it were claimed that flowering plant vegetation (e.g., oak trees) had greater buoyancy than nonflowering plant
vegetation (e.g., pine trees), it could be argued that the former might be deposited in the upper portions of the rock record.
(Berberidaceae), and 5 nonflowering plants
: Photinia fraseri Dress (Rosaceae), Buxus microphylla Sieb.
What name is given to nonflowering plants
of a division that comprises mosses and liverworts?
"That creates this problem," said van Eldijk."If they had a proboscis, what were they using it for?" The team suggested the insects used their tongues to suck up sugary droplets produced by nonflowering plants
that made seeds, a group that includes today's pine trees.
Ephedra (Ephedra intermedia) belongs to family Ephedraceae and is a genus of nonflowering plants
, related to Gnetales, very near relatives of angiosperms .
MANILA -- Huperzias are among the exotic nonflowering plants
allied to ferns (Filices), Psylotums, Selaginellas, Equisetums and other sporebearing plants.

ACR3 is an arsenite efflux transporter gene found only in gymnosperms (nonflowering plants
For nonflowering plants
to add color to landscapes, baskets, and planters, try the Blazin' Lime Iresine.
Think of the diverse genomes as navigation beacons, says Brent Mishler of the University of California, Berkeley, who has championed a proposal submitted to the Department of Energy (DOE) for sequencing nonflowering plants
. "You wouldn't want three [beacons] in Colorado and four in Texas and none anywhere else in the country," he says.
Four variables were analyzed by analysis of variance: relative maturity of plants with at least one panicle at the time of scoring (i.e., nonheaded plants were ignored), number of panicles per plant, percentage of sparse-flowering plants per plot (1-10 panicles per plant) and percentage of nonflowering plants
per plot (no panicles).
