▪ Abstract Morphological and molecular analyses resolve many aspects of vascular plant phylogeny, though others remain uncertain. Vascular plants are nested within bryophytes; lycopsids and zosterophylls are one branch of crown-group vascular plants, and euphyllophytes (Psilophyton, sphenopsids, ferns, seed plants) are the other. In Filicales, Osmundaceae are basal; water ferns and Polypodiaceae sensu lato are both monophyletic. Seed plants are nested within progymnosperms, and coniferophytes…

Molecular and Fossil Evidence on the Origin of Angiosperms
  • J. Doyle
  • Environmental Science, Geography

TLDR
Molecular data on relationships within angiosperms confirm the view that their increasing morphological diversity through the Cretaceous reflected their evolutionary radiation and appear to refute the hypothesis based on morphology that angiosPerms and Gnetales are closest living relatives.
PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSES AND MORPHOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS IN LAND PLANTS
  • J. Doyle
  • Environmental Science, Biology
  • 2012
TLDR
The origin of the angiosperm flower remains unresolved, but bitegmic ovules may be derived from cupules, and the ancestral carpel can be reconstructed as ascidiate.
Seed ferns and the origin of angiosperms
TLDR
Analysis of a critically revised morphological data set for seed plants indicates that trees in which Gnetales are nested in conifers, as in molecular analyses, are almost as parsimonious as those inWhich G netales are linked with angiosperms, suggesting that the molecular arrangement should be accepted.
Phylogeny of seed plants based on all three genomic compartments: extant gymnosperms are monophyletic and Gnetales' closest relatives are conifers.
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny strongly conflicts with current interpretations of seed plant morphology, and implies that many similarities between gnetophytes and angiosperms were independently derived, whereas other characters could emerge as synapomorphies for an expanded conifer group including Gnetales.
Integrating Molecular Phylogenetic and Paleobotanical Evidence on Origin of the Flower

TLDR
Results and developmental genetic data are consistent with homology of the angiosperm bitegmic ovule with the cupule of glossopterids and Caytonia, while the carpel could represent a leaf and a cupule‐bearing axillary branch in living basal angiosperms.
Seed plant phylogeny inferred from all three plant genomes: monophyly of extant gymnosperms and origin of Gnetales from conifers.
TLDR
The Gnetales may be viewed as extremely divergent conifers, and the many morphological similarities between angiosperms and G netales arose independently.
Phylogeny of Basal Angiosperms: Analyses of Five Genes from Three Genomes1
TLDR
The standard most parsimonious trees search, taxon deletion analyses, and constraint analyses in combination with Kishino‐Hasegawa tests provided a rigorous analytical perspective for identifying Amborella, Nymphaeales, and Illiciales‐Trimeniaceae‐Austrobaileya (ANITA) as the basalmost lineages of extant angiosperms.
The relationships of vascular plants.

  • 2000
TLDR
It is argued here that the pattern of appearance and diversification of plant megafossils owes more to changing geological conditions than to rapid biological diversification.
Contrasting Rates of Molecular Evolution and Patterns of Selection among Gymnosperms and Flowering Plants
TLDR
The results suggest that angiosperms and gymnosperms differ considerably in their rates of molecular evolution per unit time, with gymnosperm rates being, on average, seven times lower than angiosperm species.
Utility of 17 chloroplast genes for inferring the phylogeny of the basal angiosperms.
TLDR
Combined data from these 17 genes permit sturdy, well-resolved inference of major aspects of basal angiosperm relationships, demonstrating that the new primers are valuable tools for sorting out the deepest events in flowering plant phylogeny.

Seed Plant Phylogeny and the Relationships of Gnetales
  • J. Doyle

    International Journal of Plant Sciences

TLDR
Results imply that glossophytes originally had glossopterid-like leaves and bract-sporophyll complexes, which were transformed into carpels with bitegmic ovules in angiosperms, but reduced to single, terminal Ovules in Gnetales; flowers arose independently in the two lines.

TLDR
Even if molecular data resolve the relationships among living seed plant groups, understanding of the origin of angiosperm organs will require integration of fossil taxa, necessarily using morphology.
Origin of the angiosperm flower: a phylogenetic perspective
Morphological and molecular analyses agree that angiosperms are monophyletic and somehow related to Gnetales, but uncertainties on rooting (among woody magnoliids or paleoherbs) and the position of

TLDR
Experiments with a revised seed plant morphological data set raise further questions: when angiosperms are scored like different angiosperm subgroups, they associate with different outgroups, although Gnetales are their closest living relatives.
SUMMARY OF GREEN PLANT PHYLOGENY AND CLASSIFICATION

TLDR
A cladogram of green plants involving all major extant groups of green algae, bryophytes, pteridophytes and seed plants is presented and a cladistic classification consistent with the cladogram is presented.

  • P. Crane
  • Environmental Science

  • 1985
TLDR
This phylogenetic analysis of extant and fossil seed plants does not support a close relationship between Bennettitales and cycads, it provides no evidence for seed plant polyphyly, and it strongly suggests that the current concept of seed ferns has little value in a phylogenetic context.
A Reevaluation of Seed Plant Phylogeny
TLDR
The results support the placement of the cycads as the sister group of a monophyletic group that includes several fossil «seed ferns» as well as extant Ginkgo, conifers, gnetopsids, and angiosperms.
Patterns of floral evolution in the early diversification of non-magnoliid dicotyledons (eudicots)
TLDR
Evidence from morphology and molecular sequence data indicates that extant Ranunculidae as well as “lower” Hamamelididae and several other families are basal in this group of dicotyledons, and cyclic floral architecture is probably basic for eudicots as a whole.
rbcL gene sequences provide evidence for the evolutionary lineages of leptosporangiate ferns.
TLDR
To compare competing classifications, DNA sequences of a chloroplast gene were obtained and phylogenetic trees were inferred by the neighbor-joining and the parsimony methods that provided insights concerning major general evolutionary trends in the leptosporangiate ferns.
