Phylogenetic systematics of Berberidaceae and Ranunculales (Magnoliidae)
Based on a cladistic study employing outgroup comparison and parsimony analysis of 34 genera within Ranunculales, we infer that Berberidaceae, Lardizabalaceae, Menispermaceae, and Ranunculaceae areExpand

CLADISTICS OF THE MAGNOLIIDAE
Abstract A cladistic resolution is presented for the origin of the angiosperms based on a parsimony analysis of 49 taxa of Magnoliidae. Hamamelidae and Alismatidae, with gymnospermous outgroupExpand

Ordinal and familial relationships of Ranunculid genera
A morphological-based cladistic analysis was conducted on 116 ingroup taxa and 5 outgroups coded for 109 characters and 192 apomorphic character states. Ranunculid genera are better organized as theExpand

Generic relationships within Leonticeae (Berberidaceae)
Phenetic analyses of morphological characters of Leonticeae reveal three distinct groups of operational taxonomic units corresponding to genera. The genera Leontice and Gymnospermium of Eurasia areExpand

Comparison of Alternative Hypotheses for the Origin of the Angiosperms
The development of a phylogenetic system of classification for the flowering plants is dependent on the objective resolution between alternative hypotheses for their origination. Here six hypothesesExpand

Cladistics of the Spermatophyta
A cladistic interpretation of seed plant phylogeny is presented that supports the traditional morphological hypothesis: [Cycadales-(Ginkgoales-(Coniferales-(Gnetales-Angiosperms)))]. Gnetales andExpand

CLADISTIC CLASSIFICATION OF AMNIOTA: A RESPONSE TO GAUTHIER ET AL.
In a cladistic analysis of living and fossil Amniota, Gauthier et al. (1988) proposed several innovations for classification and nomenclature. First, they advocate the development of a hierarchicalExpand
