Systematics and Biogeography: Cladistics and Vicariance
It's coming again, the new collection that this site has; the favorite systematics and biogeography cladistics and vicariance book as the choice today.
How many species of seed plants are there
The recent paper by Rafael Govaerts (2001) in Taxon 's Points of View and his omission of my counts in my recent Botanical Review paper (Thorne, 2000a) inspired me to recount (several times) the
Major Disjunctions in the Geographic Ranges of Seed Plants

    The Quarterly Review of Biology
  • 1 December 1972
In attempting to review and classify the major intercontinental disjunctions in the geographic ranges of seed plants, six guiding principles are followed where possible and possible explanations for the major discontinuities are discussed.

Streamflow in the Mackenzie Basin, Canada
Rivers of the Mackenzie Basin exhibit several seasonal flow patterns that include the nival (snowmelt dominated), proglacial (influenced by glacier melt), wetland, prolacustrine (below large lakes),
Streamflow hydrology in the boreal region under the influences of climate and human interference
The effect of scenario climate change on streamflow is explored through hydrological simulation of a Canadian basin under warming scenario, which suggests that winter flow will increase, spring freshet dates will advance but peak flow will decline, as will summer flow due to enhanced evaporation.
The classification and geography of the flowering plants: Dicotyledons of the class Angiospermae
  • R. Thorne
  • Geography, Biology
    The Botanical Review
  • 1 April 2000
This latest revision of the classification and geography of the Dicotyledons is necessitated by the plethora of new information that has become available about the classification of the Angiospermae, especially in the currently popular approaches of cladistic, particulate, and molecular taxonomy.
Uncertainty in the impacts of projected climate change on the hydrology of a subarctic environment: Liard River Basin
Abstract. Like many high latitude areas, the mountainous region of subarctic Canada has experienced recent warming and is an area of large inter-annual temperature variations, most notably during the
An Updated Phylogenetic Classification of the Flowering Plants
This update of the classification of the flowering plants, or Angiospermae, is based upon about 800 pertinent books, monographs, and other botanical papers published since my last synopsis appeared in the Nordic Journal of Science in 1983, and attempts to indicate relationships among the superorders, orders, and suborders.
An updated classification of the class Magnoliopsida (“Angiospermae”)
The present classification of extant flowering plants (Magnoliopsida) updates and revises those presented previously by bringing together the vast majority of new information published since 1999.
