    Hmm, they seem to have got their labels wrong unless I am missing something? The one they have marked as male is clearly showing the stigma/style which are the female parts...

    I edited de Jong's lecture (with critical help from Dan Crowley and Hugh Angus) which explains flowering and its evolution pretty well. Lots of pictures (maple porn).

    It's available on the Open Science part of the Maple Society, but I'll attach it here too. HTH, -E
