One of the basic structures are the most striking inflorescences of conifers and palm trees that bear a remarkable resemblance to the fertile fronds of the Osmundaceae family ferns. Pollen from these inflorescences are dispersed by anemocoria through wind, just like the spores of the fern sporangia.
A tree whose fruit shaped strobilus clearly speak us of its age or primitivism is the Magnolia grandiflora. The basic structure remains the same with very small variations.
Many other plants, generally very primitive have inflorescences in strobilus more or less modified. This is the case of the Araceae, whose reproductive system has ceased to depend on wind for pollen dispersal and has evolved to adapt to the rotten flies that are their pollinators. One of the most famous is the Araceae Amorphophallus titanum, the world's largest flower.
