Discussion in relation to previous studies

Metcalfe and Chalk (1957) give a limited description of Myriophyllum in the frame of other genera of the Haloragaceae. The present study characterizes the stem of two Myriophyllum species. The anatomical spectrum of the family is therefore not fully respected.

Wayne et al. (1964) studied the intra-annual development of the shoot apex.
