Plant Systematics: A Phylogenetic Approach
This book discusses the practice of Plant Systematics, Classification, Nature, and Stability, and the aims and Organization of this book. Expand
Phylogenetic classification of Ericaceae: Molecular and morphological evidence
A new classification of Ericaceae is presented based on phylogenetic analyses of nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequence data, morphology, anatomy, and embryology, and three new taxa are described: Oligarrheneae, Richeeae, and Cosmelieae (all within Styphelioideae). 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
Autopolyploidy in angiosperms: Have we grossly underestimated the number of species?
The traditional view of plant autopolyploids as mere cytotypes is reassessed, and it is suggested that they be considered distinct species and also provide a system for naming them. Expand
Towards a phylogenetic nomenclature of Tracheophyta
Phylogenetic nomenclature (de Queiroz & Gauthier, 990, 992, 994), as embodied in the PhyloCode (Cantino & de Queiroz, 2006), is designed to name clades by explicit reference to phylogeny. WeExpand
Phylogeny of Opuntia s.s. (Cactaceae): clade delineation, geographic origins, and reticulate evolution.
The phylogenetic hypotheses were used to infer the biogeographic history, divergence times, and potential reticulate evolution of Opuntieae, including Opuntia s.s.s, which originated in southwestern South America and expanded to the Central Andean Valleys and the desert region of western North America during the Pliocene.

A survey of tricolpate (eudicot) phylogenetic relationships.
The phylogenetic structure of the tricolpate clade (or eudicots) is presented through a survey of their major subclades, each of which is briefly characterized, and the support for the monophyly of each clade is assessed through citation of the pertinent molecular phylogenetic literature. Expand
