Convergence and parallelism in evolution of structures and functions of ferns and other groups of plants

Article Russian OPEN
Derzhavina, N. M.;

On the basis of own investigations and literature data, the similarity of structures and functions of ferns and unrelated and related species is demonstrated in connection with their adaptation to similar mode of life at the different levels of the organization of plant... View more
