Outline

  • How is relatedness among plant families determined?

  • Different representative phylogenetic trees

  • Using a synoptic key

  • Tips for learning plant families


How were plant families related l.jpg
How were plant families related?

  • Relatedness among plant families was determined in the past primarily by floral traits

  • Linnaeus used plant sexual organs as a primary basis in distinguishing families and genera.


Family relatedness now l.jpg
Family Relatedness Now

  • With the advent of molecular technology, there are many other ways to determine relatedness.

  • Mostly, phylogenetic work is now done according actual differences in the DNA chloroplast genes

  • The goal is to always create a monophyletic group


Monophyletic groups l.jpg
Monophyletic Groups

  • A group containing only and all descendents of a common ancestor, and it is often characterizable by apomorphies, that is, shared, derived characters that appeared in the ancestral lineage or stem clade of that monophyletic group.

A p g l.jpg
A.P.G.

  • Angiosperm Phylogeny Group

  • Group of scientists that wanted to standardize the previous groupings

  • Based on molecular data – monophyletic groups

  • See chapter 6 for more info

  • Two seminal papers resulted

  • APG or APG I

  • APG II


Apg ii l.jpg
APG II

  • Published in 2003

  • Made clarifications from the 1998 paper

  • Basically just incorporated newer molecular data

  • Always changing and being revised, but with a good standard, that of the monophyletic group

An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG IITHE ANGIOSPERM PHYLOGENY GROUP*

A revised and updated classification for the families of the flowering plants is provided. Newly adopted orders include Austrobaileyales, Canellales, Gunnerales, Crossosomatales and Celastrales. Pertinent literature published since the first APG classification is included, such that many additional families are now placed in the phylogenetic scheme. Among these are Hydnoraceae (Piperales), Nartheciaceae (Dioscoreales), Corsiaceae (Liliales), Triuridaceae (Pandanales), Hanguanaceae (Commelinales), Bromeliacae, Mayacaceae and Rapateaceae (all Poales),


Why focus on the family l.jpg
Why focus on the family? for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG II

  • Over 400,000 plant species

  • Only about 400 plant families

  • Many families are already monophyletic


Synoptic key l.jpg
Synoptic key for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG II

  • These keys define major characteristics of a taxon

  • Page 128-129 in your book

  • Useful to help in your discovery of plant families

  • Let’s try it out!


Using a synoptic key l.jpg
Using a Synoptic Key for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG II

  • Keys are great, but if you can recognize a family, you can go a lot quicker

  • None of you need a key to recognize a conifer now (at least I hope not)

  • We will focus on knowing families


Tips for learning families l.jpg
Tips for learning families for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG II

  • Practice keying plants to family

  • Practice keying plants to genus

  • Consult books and the internet

  • Prepare a set of one-character/family tables

  • Make a family/character table

  • Flash cards

  • Study with friends
