en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strobilus

A strobilus (plural: strobili) is a structure present on many land plant species consisting of sporangia-bearing structures densely aggregated along a stem. Strobili are often called cones, but many botanists restrict the use of the term cone to the woody seed strobili of conifers. Strobili are characterized by a central axis ...

The spirally arranged sporophyll of the strobilus bears the spores in their sporangium. These spores on germination give rise to the gametophytic generation. The strobilus is considered as a reproductive structure bearing spores. Equisetum hyemale.jpg "Equisetum hyemale". Licensed under CC BY- SA 2.5 via Commons.

Lycopodium strobilus. Stobilus is globular and sporophylls are arranged spirally and closely. Sporophylls bear sporangia on their adaxial surface. Sporangium is Eusporangiate and consist of short stalk and kidney shaped capsule with numerous tiny haploid spores. Lycopodium is homosporous. Each sporangium consists ...

A sister hypothesis to the OOM hypothesis, termed the Out-of-Female (OOF) hypothesis (Theissen et al., 2002), postulates a sex-determining role for B-sister MADS box genes, whose expression is proposed to have moved acropetally in a female strobilus to leave male structures in basal positions (Fig. 1C). In general ...

Horsetails develop specialized structures known as a strobilus (plural: strobili), containing sporangiophores which develop large numbers of spores (or sporangia). In some species the strobilus develops at the top of the green or vegetative shoot. In other so-called dimorphic species of horsetails, the strobilus occurs at the ...
