    • Our results indicate that warm temperatures and moderate to high productivity are associated with larger shells and wider whorls.
    • Generally, soleniscid gastropods have smooth, orthostrophic early ontogenetic whorls and a tightly coiled initial whorl.
    • The strong lateral constriction at the beginning of the gerontic whorl is also a diagnostic shell feature of this subfamily.
    • The shells showed severe abrasion of the whorls, whereas their apertural margins were more resistant and were subjected to almost no abrasion.
    • Up to 10 whorls were measured on each shell.
    • The shells are elongated spirals, with eight whorls and an estimated average aperture-to-length ratio of 28 percent.
    • Analysis of the ecological reasons for the development of free whorls in modem gastropods may explain the reason for this condition in the Scoliostomatidae.
    • Pan and Erwin described Erwinispira jucunda and recognized that it has a larval shell of three whorls.

    • The under-layer is now permeated by patterns of curving lines with a resemblance to the whorls of fingerprints.
    • The wafers were sealed inside plastic bags and bore the whorls of the fingers that had pressed them.

    • Sepals and petals in the outer whorls are not sexual organs, but may serve to attract pollinators.
    • Floral organ identity genes control the identity of the organs in the four floral whorls - the sepals, petals, stamens, and carpels - and act downstream of the meristem identity loci.
    • Primordia of the corolla, androecium, and gynoecium arise in three successive whorls.
    • Leaves were borne in spirals or whorls, probably on short shoots.
    • Thirty terminal shoot segments were harvested randomly from the last whorl of branches at the top of the trees.
    • Trillium species are characterized by a single trimerous flower subtended by a whorl of three leaves.
    • Around these reproductive organs is the perianth, usually consisting of an outer whorl of sepals and an inner whorl of petals.
    • The plant has woody stems, whorls of lance-shaped leaves, and long dense spikes of tubular-shaped light blue, purple, pink, or white flowers from which bees make wonderful honey.
    • Pines normally produce whorls of lateral branches with no internodal buds along the stem.
    • They may then deviate from a Fibonacci pattern and tend to form approximate whorls of three organs or have a somewhat irregular arrangement.
