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

A revised classification of Santalales
We present here a revised classification of Santalales, an angiosperm order that contains 18 families, 160 genera, and over 2200 species. Both nonparasitic and parasitic flowering plants occur in theExpand

Molecular Phylogenetic and Evolutionary Studies of Parasitic Plants
The parasitic nutritional mode is a frequently evolved adaptation in animals (Price, 1980), as well as in flowering plants (Kuijt, 1969). Heterotrophic angiosperms can be classified as eitherExpand

Multigene phylogeny of land plants with special reference to bryophytes and the earliest land plants.
A widely held view of land plant relationships places liverworts as the first branch of the land plant tree, whereas some molecular analyses and a cladistic study of morphological characters indicateExpand

Floral Gigantism in Rafflesiaceae
Species of Rafflesiaceae possess the world's largest flowers (up to 1 meter in diameter), yet their precise evolutionary relationships have been elusive, hindering our understanding of the evolutionExpand

Vegetative and reproductive innovations of early land plants: implications for a unified phylogeny.
As the oldest extant lineages of land plants, bryophytes provide a living laboratory in which to evaluate morphological adaptations associated with early land existence. In this paper we examineExpand

Molecular data place Hydnoraceae with Aristolochiaceae.
Utilization of molecular phylogenetic information over the past decade has resulted in clarification of the position of most angiosperms. In contrast, the position of the holoparasitic familyExpand

Phylogenetic inference in Rafflesiales: the influence of rate heterogeneity and horizontal gene transfer
BackgroundThe phylogenetic relationships among the holoparasites of Rafflesiales have remained enigmatic for over a century. Recent molecular phylogenetic studies using the mitochondrial matR geneExpand
