Survey of the vascular plants Why we put what where and to determine families 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?
Why we put what where and to determine families
http://www.mobot.org/MOBOT/research/APweb/welcome.htmlFrom the Missouri Botanic GardenNote that these are only to order, but we focus on the familyMostly based on APG
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),
