Summary of recent systems of angiosperm classification

  title={Summary of recent systems of angiosperm classification},
  author={James Lauritz Reveal},
  journal={Kew Bulletin},
SummarySeven recently established (2007 – 2010) systems of classification for flowering plants (Magnoliidae or angiosperms) are uniformly arranged in a linear fashion to allow ready comparisons with an eighth proposed anew here. Uniform names and orthography are used throughout with author abbreviations; however, the choice of names above the rank of family are not standardised as rules of priority do not apply. Full bibliographic information is not given but is available both in print and… 
New ordinal names established by changes to the botanical code
At the 2011 Nomenclature Session held during the XVIII International Botanical Congress in Melbourne, Australia, a large number of effectively published suprafamilial names were validated for which the following are noted at this time.
A revision of African Lecythidaceae
The distribution of Lecythidaceae in Africa is predominantly in West Africa from Guinea to the Democratic Republic of the Congo with only a few species occurring in East Africa.
Morphology of Maundia supports its isolated phylogenetic position in the early-divergent monocot order Alismatales
The shared possession of orthotropous ovules supports the molecular phylogenetic placement of Maundia as sister to a large clade including Potamogetonaceae and related families and its segregation as a separate family is plausible.
Plutella australiana (Lepidoptera, Plutellidae), an overlooked diamondback moth revealed by DNA barcodes
The present study reveals the presence of two genetically divergent lineages of this taxon in Australia, one shows close genetic and morphological similarity with the nearly cosmopolitan Plutella xylostella, and the second possesses a similar external morphology, but marked sequence divergence in the barcode region of the cytochrome c oxidase I gene.
An updated checklist of the vascular flora native to Italy
Abstract An updated inventory of the native vascular flora of Italy, providing details on the occurrence at regional level, is presented. The checklist includes 8195 taxa (6417 species and 1778
Progress and problems in the assessment of flower morphology in higher-level systematics
It appears that apomorphic features in the strict sense are less helpful to characterize larger clades than earlier assumed, and rather apomorphic tendencies of features are more useful at this level.
The Family Placement of Cyrtandromoea
A combination of morphological synapomorphies such as cymose inflorescences, 5-angled toothed calyx, flowers with bilocular ovary with axile placentation with numerous small seeds with endosperm, and loculicidal dehiscing capsule support the placement of Cyrtandromoea in Phrymaceae.
Ardisia silamensis, a new ultramafic species from Borneo; studies in Malaysian Myrsinaceae II
A new species of Ardisia (Myrsinaceae) is described from the Malaysian state of Sabah in northern Borneo, currently only known from ultramafic substrates on Mt Silam, and is assessed as Critically Endangered according to the IUCN criteria.
A synopsis of the genus Embelia in Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore. Studies in Malaysian Myrsinaceae III
The genus Embelia in Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore is revised, and three new species are described and a new combination is made: Embelia beccariana based on Grenacheria beccariansa.
The Identification, Nomenclature, and Naturalized Distribution of Mazus miquelii (Mazaceae) in North America
ABSTRACT  Two species of Mazus (Mazaceae) are naturalized in North America, Mazus pumilus and Mazus miquelii. A new guide for distinguishing these species is provided. Comparisons of North American


An updated classification of the class Magnoliopsida (“Angiospermae”)
The present classification of extant flowering plants (Magnoliopsida) updates and revises those presented previously by bringing together the vast majority of new information published since 1999.
A phylogenetic classification of the land plants to accompany APG III
A formal classification of the land plants that is compatible with the APG III classification is proposed, and two new names are established: Amborellanae and Austrobaileyanae.
The Linear Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (LAPG) III: A linear sequence of the families in APG III
The publication of the third Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (APG) classification has resulted in the need for a revised systematic listing of the accepted families, and this linear APG III (LAPG III) sequence of families is presented here.
An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG IV
A revised and updated classification for the families of the flowering plants is provided and the use of bracketing families that could be included optionally in broader circumscriptions with other related families are expanded.
APG III: Bibliographical Information and Synonymy of Magnoliidae
An updated classification of the orders and families of flowering plants was published in 2009 by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group along with two companion papers, one a linear arrangement of the taxa,
Flowering Plant Families of the World
This updated and revised successor to a classic book, Flowering Plants of the World is an authoritative, fascinating introduction to the Earth's most colourful flora comprising comprehensive accounts of more than 500 flowering plant families.
Validation of subordinal names for "Systema Angiospermarum"
Nineteen subordinal names for flowering plants are established for the online version of “Systema Angiospermarum”, the scientific treatise on flowering plants.
Mabberley's Plant-book: A Portable Dictionary of Plants, their Classification and Uses
This book explains how to use the dictionary and some of the symbols used in it will help you to identify words and symbols in the English language.
