In defence of the transfer of Nablonium to Ammobium (Asteraceae-Gnaphalieae), a reply to Orchard

A cladistic parsimony analysis has been undertaken based on the data presented in support of an alternative taxonomic treatment of Nablonium, and it is concluded that Ammobium is paraphyletic, and the problem with paraphYletic groups is discussed.

Ammobium and Nablonium (Asteraceae-Gnaphalieae) - an alternative view

Nab/onium differs from the two species of Ammobium by a group of 14 characters, while the links between the genera are much less than previously suggested, best reflected in a classification which keeps the two genera distinct.

Phylogenetic relationships of the Australasian shrubby everlastings Ozothamnus and Cassinia (Asteraceae: Asteroideae: Gnaphalieae)

The first comprehensive phylogenetic study of the Australasian shrubby everlastings Ozothamnus, Cassinia, and their satellite genera is presented based on the nuclear ribosomal external and internal

Paraphyletic groups as natural units of biological classification

It is demonstrated that paraphyly is a natural transitional stage in the evolution of taxa, and that it occurs regularly along with holophyly, and it is stressed the importance of degrees of divergence plus similarity (cohesiveness of evolutionary features) as additional criteria for classification.

Patrocladistics, nothing new

"Patrocladistics" is simply another variety of evolutionary taxonomy that generates paraphyletic groups, resulting in classifications that are logically inconsistent with the phylogenies on which they are supposedly based, and there is every reason to constrain classification by branching structure of well-corroborated phylogenetic trees in a cladistic context.

Contributions to the pollen morphology of the tribe Inuleae (subfamily Asteroideae-Compositae) in the flora of Egypt

The pollen morphology of 18 species of tribe Inuleae belonging to 10 genera was examined by light and scanning microscopy and an interesting correlation observed is that the taxa having slightly thick exine with echinate or echinulate tectum haben.

In defence of paraphyletic taxa

It is maintained that a classification based solely on phylogeny* is different from and incompatible with the Linnaean system, and the theory of Hennigian classification is flawed. A purely

Classification: More than Just Branching Patterns of Evolution

It is argued that cladistics is inappropriate to both these goals due to inability of branching patterns to reveal all significant dimensions of phylogeny and documented nonparsimonious pathways of evolution.

Cladistic Analysis of Millotia (Asteraceae-Gnaphalieae)

A cladistic analysis of Millotia Cass has been undertaken and it is concluded that inbreeding taxa have independently evolved three times and are small monophyletic ingroups inMillotia.



The generic limits of Ixodia R.Br. ex Ait. (Compositae-Inuleae).

The two Tasmanian species of Ixodia (I. angusta and I. achlaena) are re-examined and it is proposed that they be segregated as a new genus Odixia.

Phylogeny and reclassification of the tribe Inuleae (Asteraceae)

The taxonomic implication of the analyses is that the tribe Inuleae is an unnatural, not monophyletic group, which must be divided in better defined monophyletsic tribes.
