This book discusses the practice of Plant Systematics, Classification, Nature, and Stability, and the aims and Organization of this book.
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).
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 elements…
A Molecular Phylogeny for Bats Illuminates Biogeography and the Fossil Record
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.
Angiosperm family pairs: Preliminary phylogenetic analysis
Towards a phylogenetic nomenclature of Tracheophyta
Criteria and approaches used here to choose among competing preexisting names for a clade, to select a definition type, to choose appropriate specifiers, and to restrict the use of a name to certain phylogenetic contexts may be widely applicable when naming other clades.
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.
An extinct genus of Salicaceae based on twigs with attached flowers, fruits, and foliage from the Eocene Green River Formation of Utah and Colorado, USA.

A newly recovered twig with attached leaves and flowers from the Eocene Green River Formation of Utah provides the basis for recognizing a new, extinct genus of Salicaceae sensu lato (s.l.) Pseudosalix handleyi, which raises the possibility of a North American origin for the Saliceae.
