  • PREMISE OF THE STUDY The sandalwood order (Santalales) includes members that present a diverse array of inflorescence types, some of which are unique among angiosperms. This diversity presents not only interpretational challenges but also opportunities to test fundamental concepts in plant morphology. Here we used modern phylogenetic approaches to address the evolution of inflorescences in the sandalwood order. METHODS Phylogenetic analyses of two nuclear and three chloroplast genes were… CONTINUE READING
