An ordinal classification for the families of flowering plants
Recent cladistic analyses are revealing the phylogeny of flowering plants in increasing detail, and there is support for the monophyly of many major groups above the family level. With many elementsExpand

On the Proteaceae—the evolution and classification of a southern family*
A scheme of phylogeny in the Proteaceae is derived from analysis of new and previously available data on morphological, anatomical and chromosomal characters. The probable attributes of a commonExpand

Hydatellaceae identified as a new branch near the base of the angiosperm phylogenetic tree
Although the relationship of angiosperms to other seed plants remains controversial, great progress has been made in identifying the earliest extant splits in flowering-plant phylogeny, with theExpand

Assembling the Tree of the Monocotyledons: Plastome Sequence Phylogeny and Evolution of Poales1
Abstract The order Poales comprises a substantial portion of plant life (7% of all angiosperms and 33% of monocots) and includes taxa of enormous economic and ecological significance. Molecular andExpand

Interfamilial Relationships in Myrtales: Molecular Phylogeny and Patterns of Morphological Evolution
Numerous phenotypic (morphological, palynological, cytological, and anatomical) studies have been conducted on Myrtales, yet the detailed relationships among the families of the order remain elusive.Expand

Another look at the root of the angiosperms reveals a familiar tale.
Since the advent of molecular phylogenetics more than 25 years ago, a major goal of plant systematists has been to discern the root of the angiosperms. Although most studies indicate that AmborellaExpand
