Morphological Phylogenetic Analysis of Basal Angiosperms: Comparison and Combination with Molecular Data
TLDR
Combined analyses of morphological and molecular data generally yield the same topologies as molecular analyses, but morphology overcomes weak molecular evidence in indicating that Chloranthaceae belong just above the basal grade, that monocots are related to Piperales, and that Lauraceae are linked with Hernandiaceae. Expand
Phylogenomics and a posteriori data partitioning resolve the Cretaceous angiosperm radiation Malpighiales
TLDR
It is found that commonly used a priori approaches for partitioning concatenated data in maximum likelihood analyses, by gene or by codon position, performed poorly relative to the use of partitions identified a posteriori using a Bayesian mixture model. Expand
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
Phylogeny and Evolution of Angiosperms
TLDR
This book discusses the phylogeny of the Angiosperms, the Classification of Angiosperm Classification, and the Distribution of Eudicots in the Eudicot Supertree. Expand
Symmetry in Flowers: Diversity and Evolution
  • P. K. Endress
  • Medicine, Biology
  • International Journal of Plant Sciences
  • 1 November 1999
TLDR
To study the evolution of the diverse symmetry patterns, a concerted approach from different fields including molecular developmental genetics, pollination biology, and comparative diversity research is necessary. Expand
The Flowers in Extant Basal Angiosperms and Inferences on Ancestral Flowers
  • P. K. Endress
  • Biology
  • International Journal of Plant Sciences
  • 1 September 2001
This is a combination of a review and original data on floral structure, development, and biology of representatives of all families of the ANITA grade and, in addition, Chloranthaceae andExpand
Diversity and evolutionary biology of tropical flowers
TLDR
This book discusses the biology of selected systematic groups in the tropics of flower evolution and the role of pollinators in this process. Expand
Evolutionary diversification of the flowers in angiosperms.
  • P. K. Endress
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of botany
  • 1 March 2011
TLDR
A review of floral diversification in the different organs and organ complexes through the major clades of extant angiosperms shows how superficial and fragmentary knowledge on floral structure in many clades is. Expand
Reconstructing the ancestral angiosperm flower and its initial specializations.
TLDR
This work evaluates early floral evolution in angiosperms by parsimony optimization of morphological characters on phylogenetic trees derived from morphological and molecular data and indicates that the simple flowers of the newly recognized basal groups are reduced rather than primitively simple.
