Details of fossil stomata reveal guard cells and internal anatomy similar to that in Oedipodium, the first moss lineage with stomata. Gard. Anatomy and ultrastructure of the sporophyte of Takakia ceratophylla (Bryophyta). (2015). They collapse when mature, facilitating drying, capsule dehiscence and spore dispersal, and have been interpreted as either independent from stomata in origin (Duckett et al., 2009) or as modified stomata (Renzaglia et al., 2007; Merced, 2015; Merced and Renzaglia, 2017). B) Stem done clear. doi: 10.1179/1743282011Y.0000000044. Minimally we identify 40 families and 74 genera in which stomata are absent. Hedenäs, L. (2005). Flora of North America Editorial Committee (New York, NY: Oxford University Press), 162–164. Source(s): I know this from teaching botany, but I also looked it up in the following text book just to make sure the details were correct.

Avaliable online at: http://www.anbg.gov.au/abrs/Mosses_online/Orthorrhynchiaceae.pdf, Klazenga, N. (2012b). Prepared blocks of capsules from species not found in Illinois were sectioned and examined. venter. An immature capsule has a protective cap of gametophyte tissue called calyptra, which is shed when the capsule is mature. This circumsporangial space forms in the young capsule just interior to the solid capsule wall in a zone between the amphithecium and endothecium, the two primary embryonic regions (Figure 4B). (A–C,F,H) Atrichum angustatum that lacks stomata in left hand column. These losses are equally present in acrocarps and pleurocarps with high numbers in the Dicranales, Pottiales, and Hypnales (Figure 1). In capsule of Funaria stomata are present only in apophysis. The preponderance of recent evidence suggests that stomata play a strategic role in capsule maturation, drying, and dehiscence without any active regulation of water loss. The capsule is wide and green at the base where the calyptra ends and the narrowly constricted area of the apophysis houses stomata (arrow). Merced, A. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2018.01.063. Stomata are not foundational to these processes. N. Z. J. Bot. Developmental changes in guard cell wall structure and pectin composition in the moss Funaria: implications for function and evolution of stomata. Completing the CAPTCHA proves you are a human and gives you temporary access to the web property. Stomata present on the epidermis of sporophyte but with single doughnut shaped guard cell. It is parenchymatous cells. Pursell, R. A. Unlike the neck or apophysis of stomata-containing mosses, there is no potential for a transpirational pull of water up and out of the capsule. Flora of North America Editorial Committee (New York, NY: Oxford University Press), 489–494. (A) LM tangential section of expanding capsule showing stomata (arrow) and associated intercellular spaces are liquid-filled (arrow heads). R. Soc. The earliest land plant macrofossils from 400 ma exhibit similar sporangial morphologies and stomatal distribution to extant mosses, suggesting that the earliest mosses may have possessed and lost stomata as is common in the group. 34, 63–65. From the urn down, the neck tapers toward the seta and there is no distinct apophysis. Phylogeny and diversification of bryophytes. Calyptrae cucullate, covering the upper part of the capsules, rarely mitrate, smooth. Comparisons with the oldest fossil plants reveal similar capsule morphology and stomatal arrangement/anatomy as in each of these extant early divergent mosses (Figures 3D–J). J. Hattori Bot. Image credit: Jeffrey J. Duckett. For light microscopy, semi-thin sections (250–750 nm) were mounted on glass slides and stained with 1.5% toluidine blue in distilled water. Brittonia 36, 300–306. Numbers above 200 are rare and recorded only for three families, Polytrichaceae, Funariaceae (Figure 2B) and Bartramiaceae, although many members of these family have less than 70 stomata (Figures 2C,F) (Table 1). Reproduction in gametophyte of Funaria is of two type-(1) Vegetative (2) Sexual Bars: (A) = 0.5 mm, (B,E–G,I) = 50 μm, (C) = 0.2 mm, (D) = 1.0 mm, (H) = 20 μm. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. Figure 2. Avaliable online at: http://www.anbg.gov.au/abrs/Mosses_Online/Entodontaceae.pdf. Oedipodium, the fi rst extant moss with true stomata, has an elaborated capsule with numerous long-pored stomata; in contrast, the reduced and short-lived Ephemerumhas few round-pored stomata. Stomata are present on the lower part of capsule. “Grimmia,” in Flora of North America North of Mexico, Vol. Both genera in the Tetraphidaceae have erect cylindrical capsules with simple anatomy and minimal neck. doi: 10.1639/0007-2745-116.3.263. ← In most moss species, the upper part of the capsule freatures a ring of toothlike structures known as the peristome • The peristome is specialized for gradual spore dischage, taking advantage of periodic wind gusts tha can carry spores long distances. Early plant fossils and the high incidence of stomata loss in extant mosses are consistent with the hypothesis that stomata evolved once in bryophytes and were lost repeatedly during diversification, including in early divergent lineages and along the entire moss phylogeny. Flora of North America Editorial Committee (New York, NY: Oxford University Press), 623–627. The extent of the system of substomatal cavites and circumsporangial space is related to the size of the capsule or apophysis where stomata are present. Renzaglia, K. S., Schuette, S., Duff, R. J., Ligrone, R., Shaw, A. J., Mishler, B. D., et al. We initiated this study by plotting the known occurrences of stomata loss and numbers per capsule on the most recent moss phylogeny. Ann. Curr. (2007). Bars = 25 μm. Strand of thin-walled, vertically elongated cells is present in the center. (2012), according to which stomata are located in the upper half of capsule, mostly in the central part of urn. Structure of Polytrichaceae capsule. Reproduction. (E) Tortilicaulis transwalliensis capsule from the Silurian resembles Takakia in (D). C. Operculum and columela. Explanation: Capsule (the body containing spores) of Funaria is differentiated into-operculum (cap shaped 2-3 layered thick lid on the rop); theca (middle fertile part) and apophysis (sterile, solid basal portion of the capsule having chloroplasts). These structures are precursors of roots. The formation of substomatal cavities involves deposition of a fluid in the cavity that does not localize for pectins, suggesting it is not mucilaginous in nature (Merced and Renzaglia, 2014, 2016). Side-by-side sections illustrate the arrangement of tissues, including air spaces, in these closely related genera. Bot. In taxa with stomata, stomata and liquid-filled substomatal cavities form in the expanding neck or apophysis before the sporogenous tissue develops (Figure 7A). The evolution of the stomatal apparatus: intercellular spaces and sporophyte water relations in bryophytes—two ignored dimensions. doi: 10.1080/0028825X.2005.9512997, Goffinet, B. mouth (peristome: a ring of interlocking, toothlike structures on the upper part of the moss capsule, often specialized for gradual spore discharge)-stoma. “Schistidium,” in Flora of North America North of Mexico, Vol. Consequently, we turned to the fossil record for clues as to when in moss evolution stomata evolved. (2012). Peristome simple or branched and variable in size (Fig. chamber at the base of an archegonium which contains the single haploid egg cell (Bryophytes) seta. A clear trend is the absence of stomata in aquatic bryophytes, e.g., Fissidens subg. Copyright © 2020 Renzaglia, Browning and Merced. J. Hattori Bot. Apophysis is the basal, green, photosynthetic region of the capsule. Spores spherical, small, numerous, papillose. Anatomy of Flowering Plants. 1A). 9. 1c, d); leaf double. Flora of North America Editorial Committee (New York, NY: Oxford University Press), 40–41. Anatomy and development are foundational for understanding plant structure/function relationships and evolution. Am. This is a low estimate given the scant record of descriptions and counts of stomata in mosses. The molecular mechanisms controlling air spaces and stomata placement are now being elucidated, and it is hypothesized that feedback signaling between stomata and air spaces influences mesophyll arrangement (Baillie and Fleming, 2020). In Moss Stomata Appears on options A. Bryophyte phylogeny: advancing the molecular and morphological frontiers. D. Stem. The calyptra covers the capsule up to the constriction throughout development. 27, ed. The astomate capsule of Atrichum provides abundant clues to the potential role of the internal spaces in moss capsules. In Polytrichastrum, the capsule is swollen throughout with extensive internal spaces (Figures 4D,E). Yu, N.-N., and Jia, Y. As illustrated in the immature Leucobryum and mature Atrichum, Ephemerum and Plagiomnium capsules, the circumsporangial space extends around the entire spore sac, providing a protective and nutritive matrix during spore differentiation. So, they appear on the capsule, but not on the 'leafy' part of the plant, which is the gametophyte. Stomata in this moss are binucleate single cells resulting from incomplete cytokinesis of a guard cell mother cell located in the subapical region of the capsule. Flora of North America Editorial Committee, (New York, NY: Oxford University Press), 121–160. (B) Funaria hygrometrica SEM of apophysis covered with ∼200 stomata. 174, 788–797. Numbers of stomata per capsule range from 0 to 250 (Figure 2 and Table 1), with the vast majority of counts (40 of 54 = 74%) ranging from 3 to 30 (Figures 2C,D). In ppsmf1 knockout lines no stomata form on the moss sporophyte (Chater et al., 2016). The existence and arrangement of key tissues such as conducting tissue are not adequately documented. Australian Mosses Online. This is similar to what we observed in mosses without stomata, i.e., that substomatal cavities fail to form. Spence, J. R. (2015). Fossil plants from the Silurian and early Devonian demonstrate that the range of variability in sporangia seen in extant mosses existed approximately 400 million years ago. Grids were rinsed with PBS followed by distilled/deionized autoclaved filtered water, and dried at room temperature. KR designed the study, conducted anatomical studies, prepared the figures, analyzed the data, and wrote the manuscript. Image credit: Jeffrey J. Duckett. Pursell, R. A., Bruggeman-Nannenga, M. A., and Allen, B. H. (1988). Cheney, L. S. (1897). Our anatomical studies point to modified architectural features that accompanied stomata loss and led to fundamentally different, but equally effective, internal hydration and capsule maturation. Peristome double; exostome 16, lanceolate, erect-spreading when young and dry, reflexed when old Pterigynandraceae. Bars: (A) = 25 μm; (B,D–F) = 4 μm; (C) = 200 nm; (G) = 20 μm. Stomata are arranged in files of five to seven rows around the apophysis and spaced by at least one cell, with the exception of juxtaposed stomata, occurring 1–4 % of the time (Table 1). Co., doi: 10.5962/bhl.title.54494. Bryologist 91, 202–213. 117, 985–994. Figure 4. Schofield, W. B. Stomata are present in Funaria plant on the-A. 86, 179–185. Substomatal cavities begin to develop at the spear stage in concert with guard cell differentiation before sporogenesis. In many capsules with stomata such as Funaria, circumsporangial spaces extend into the apophysis and eventually connect with substomatal cavities, forming an elaborate system of internal spaces (Merced and Renzaglia, 2016).
