N2 - Let G be a 2-connected outerplane bipartite graph and R(G) be its resonance graph. It is known that R(G) is a median graph. Assume that s is a reducible face of G and H is the subgraph of G obtained by removing all internal vertices (if exist) and edges on the common periphery of s and G. We show that R(G) can be obtained from R(H) by a peripheral convex expansion. As an application, we prove that Θ(R(G)) is a tree and isomorphic to the inner dual of G, where Θ(R(G)) is the induced graph on the Djoković–Winkler relation Θ-classes of R(G).
