This evolutionary cladistic analysis of the arborescent (wood-producing) lycopsids, an exclusively fossil group of vascular plants, is confined to the strongest available data: anatomically preserved fossils that have been painstakingly reconstructed into conceptual whole plants. Ten Carboniferous genera are represented by 16 species: four pseudoherbs/ *'shrubs" and 12 of tbe arboreous (tree-siaed) species that epitomize the Pennsylvanian coal swarnps of EuramericaThe 69 vegetative and 46… CONTINUE READING
