it's a pity you have finished the discussion here. But you are right. There were some interesing links you sent. It's more usefull to read those materials. I was again inspired by the link you sent on German idealistic morphology and borrowed Pflanzenmorphology by professor Wilhelm Troll. It has more than 700 pages and it deals with interesting idea that all seed-plants are just variations of ideal "Urpflanze". Wilhelm Troll crucial works - as those of A. Portmann - haven't been translated into English.
I could not answer, but should maintain my ground.-
