The publication of the third Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (APG) classification (APG III. 2009. An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG III. Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society161: 128–131) has resulted in the need for a revised systematic listing of the accepted families. This linear APG III (LAPG III) sequence of families is presented here. © 2009 The Linnean Society of London, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society…

A linear classification of Cyperaceae
This paper provides a linear classification of two subfamilies, 24 tribes, 10 subtribes and 95 genera of the monocot family Cyperaceae (Poales), based on a stable phylogenetic framework resulting
An Update of the Family-Level Taxonomy of Vascular Plants in Mongolia
A new comprehensive checklist of Mongolian vascular plant families includes descriptions of all accepted plant families, each with a basionym, homonym and full list of synonyms. The list is a
Families and genera of Chinese angiosperms: a synoptic classification based on APG III
This study investigates circumscriptions of families and genera of native and introduced angiosperms in China according to the APG III classification system and recent phylogenetic studies and found that there are 258 native and 55 introduced families, and 2,872 introduced genera in China.
A new classification and linear sequence of extant gymnosperms
A new classification and linear sequence of the gymnosperms based on previous molecular and morphological phylogenetic and other studies is presented. Currently accepted genera are listed for each
A genus‐level phylogenetic linear sequence of monocots
The sequence is provided in a numbered list of each of the 1225 genera in 75 monocot families, together with a complementary alphabetical list, which represents a standardized tool for the organisation ofmonocot herbarium collections.
Angiosperm Phylogeny Group Classification in Fourth Iteration: Its Future Impact in India
The communication discusses major changes in the new version of APG classification and its adoption in India. APG IV has further stabilized with addition of 2 informal groups, 5 new orders, 10 new
Summary of recent systems of angiosperm classification
Seven recently established 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, and nine suborder and two family names are established.
Checklist of the native vascular plants of Mexico
A linear sequence to facilitate curation of herbarium specimens of Annonaceae
A linear sequence of four subfamilies, 15 tribes and 106 genera of the magnoliid family Annonaceae is provided, based on state-of-the-art and stable phylogenetic relationships, which facilitates the organisation ofAnnonaceae herbarium specimens.
The background to this development is given and the families in Brassicales are introduced, including Tropaeolaceae, the subject of this issue.


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.
A linear sequence of Angiosperm Phylogeny Group II families
La necesidad ofrece una secuencia lineal actualizada de familias de angiospermas basada en el sistema APG y el metodos utilizados para generar la Secuencia estan claramente establecidos.
Malpighiales phylogenetics: Gaining ground on one of the most recalcitrant clades in the angiosperm tree of life.
These data provide greatly increased support for the recent additions of Aneulophus, Bhesa, Centroplacus, Ploiarium, and Rafflesiaceae to Malpighiales; sister relations of Phyllanthaceae + Picrodendraceae, monophyly of Hypericaceae, and polyphyly of Clusiaceae.
Further arguments for the rejection of paraphyletic taxa: Veronica subgen. Pseudolysimachium (Plantaginaceae)
The recent reclassification of Veronica to include the Southern Hemisphere Hebe-complex, North American Synthyris and Besseya, and the Eurasian Pseudolysimachion necessitated numerous nomenclatural changes including 24 new combinations in the latter presented here.
Rosid radiation and the rapid rise of angiosperm-dominated forests
The timing of the inferred rapid radiation of rosids corresponds with the rapid rise of angiosperm-dominated forests and the concomitant diversification of other clades that inhabit these forests, including amphibians, ants, placental mammals, and ferns.
Phylogeny and Phylogenetic Nomenclature of the Campanulidae Based on an Expanded Sample of Genes and Taxa
A phylogenetic classification of Campanulidae with phylogenetic definitions for all well-supported major clades is provided and a number of enigmatic taxa are confidently placed, some whose relationships were previously unresolved and some never before included.
Using plastid genome-scale data to resolve enigmatic relationships among basal angiosperms
Parsimony analyses of combined and partitioned data sets varied in the placement of several taxa, particularly Ceratophyllum, whereas maximum-likelihood (ML) trees were more topologically stable, and ML bootstrap and Bayesian support values for these relationships were generally high, although approximately unbiased topology tests could not reject several alternative topologies.
Huerteales sister to Brassicales plus Malvales, and newly circumscribed to include Dipentodon, Gerrardina, Huertea, Perrottetia, and Tapiscia
With the rapidly evolving and non-coding plastid sequence data, the Huerteales clade was able to resolve to branch after Sapindales, and to be sister to a Brassicales-MalvalesClade.
Analysis of 81 genes from 64 plastid genomes resolves relationships in angiosperms and identifies genome-scale evolutionary patterns
Phylogenetic trees from multiple methods provide strong support for the position of Amborella as the earliest diverging lineage of flowering plants, followed by Nymphaeales and Austrobaileyales, and the plastid genome trees also provide strongSupport for a sister relationship between eudicots and monocots, and this group is sister to a clade that includes Chloranthales and magnoliids.
Optimising linear taxon sequences derived from phylogenetic trees : a reply to Haston & al
It is shown that the projection of the Angiosperm phylogeny to a linear sequence, proposed by Haston & al. (2007), is not ideal because it is incompletely optimized for incompletely specified criteria.
