Character and its development and evolution. Top left: A schematic showing character values and their changes during development and evolution. Top right: Petals of three pairs of species within the Ranunculaceae, showing the diversity in shape and color. Vertically paired species are Souliea vaginata and Cimicifuga acerina, Eranthis stellata and Helleborus thibetanus, and Isopyrum manshuricum and Urophysa rockii. Below: Flowers of the above-m entioned species. (Photographed by Rui Zhang. Cover image is designed by Hongzhi Kong).
