  • Most phylogenetic analyses of morphological data agree that Gnetales are a monophyletic group related to angiosperms and Bennettitales. However, they disagree on whether these groups (anthophytes) are related to coniferopsids or to Mesozoic seed ferns, and thus on whether the flowers of Gnetales are primitively simple or reduced. Molecular analyses indicate that both Gnetales and angiosperms are monophyletic but disagree on their relationship. The conclusion of Nixon et al. (1994) that Gnetales… CONTINUE READING
