Progress and problems in the assessment of flower morphology in higher-level systematics
TLDR
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.
Floral Fusion: The Evolution and Molecular Basis of a Developmental Innovation.
TLDR
The development of fused floral organs is introduced as a key 'developmental innovation' facilitated by a change in the expression of NAM/CUC3 transcription factors, and a gene regulatory network responsible for directing fusion is proposed to guide future research in this area.
Flowers on the Tree of Life: Changing views of flower evolution and new questions
TLDR
The discovery of many well-preserved Cretaceous fossil fl owers led to a new trend in evolutionary biology studies away from phylogenetics and towards evolution, because fossil fl Owers do not provide DNA.
Reconstructing the ancestral angiosperm flower and its initial specializations.
TLDR
This work evaluates early floral evolution in angiosperms by parsimony optimization of morphological characters on phylogenetic trees derived from morphological and molecular data and indicates that the simple flowers of the newly recognized basal groups are reduced rather than primitively simple.
A consensus classification for the order Gentianales with additional details on the suborder Apocynineae
TLDR
The Gentianales as circumscribed by Benson, Cronquist, Dahlgren, Goldberg, Hey wood and al., Melchior, Stebbins, Takhtajan and Thorne is investigated and a consensus classification or classificatory model for the order is proposed.
Numerical and comparative analyses of the modern systems of classification of the flowering plants
TLDR
For changes and modifications to become effective in future classifications of flowering plants, one will have to minimize the implicit influence of the modern systems as standard systems, and to count on, among others, molecular data in redefining taxonomic concepts founded on classical morphology.
Relationships between floral organization, architecture, and pollination mode inDillenia (Dilleniaceae)
TLDR
The flowers ofDillenia are highly elaborate pollen-flowers adapted to buzzpollination byXylocopa bees and the differentiation of heteranthery seems to be functionally correlated with the extended centrifugal inception.

Comparative Morphology of Vascular Plants
TLDR
The morphology of vascular plants is studied in detail in the context of fungal establishment and photosynthesis in the absence of phytochemical defences.
