Stelar evolution in Pteridophytes

  1. 1. STELAR EVOLUTION IN PTERIDOPHYTES DR. JAYAKARA NHANDARY M.ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR & HEAD DEPT. OF BOTANY GAS COLLEGE, KARWAR
  2. 2. BASIC TYPES OF STELES• PROTOSTELE – Central Xylem, surrounding Phloem. No Pith. Primitive• SIPHONOSTELE – Protostele with Central Pith. Advanced
  3. 3. TYPES OF PROTOSTELES• Haplostele – Central circular Xylem. Rhynia• Actinostele – Star shaped Xylem. Ex. Psilotum, Lycopodium serratum• Plectostele- Xylem broken into many parallel plates. Ex. L. clavatum• Mixed Protostele – Small irregular patches of Xylem. Ex. L. cernuum
  4. 4. TYPES OF SIPHONOSTELES• Cladosiphonic – No leaf traces• Phyllosiphonic – with leaf traces• Ectophloic – Phloem outside xylem . Ex. Equisetum• Amphiphloic – Outer and inner rings of Phloem, Xylem central. Ex. Marselia
  5. 5. TYPES OF SIPHONOSTELE• Solenostele – Non-overlapping leaf traces. Ex. Adiantum• Dictyostele- Overlapping leaf traces Ex. Ophioglossum• Polycyclic – Two or more concentric rings of vascular tissue. Complex type. Ex. Pteris
  6. 6. Origin of Siphonostele• Intra stelar Origin – Pith developed from inner xylem cells.• Extra stelar Origin – Pith formed by outer cortical cells which entered inside through leaf gaps.
  7. 7. Evolution of Stele
