About this book. Although they are relative latecomers on the evolutionary scene, having emerged only – million years ago, angiosperms – or flowering plants – are the most diverse and species-rich group of seed-producing land plants, comprising more t genera and over , species. "The book, Phylogeny and Evolution of Angiosperms, is timely despite the continued progress, modifications and uncertainties in the systematics of this largest group of land plants. The book is very well balanced in terms of historical review of the various subjects, presentation of recent findings, integration of non-DNA information with the Cited by: One of the world’s leading evolutionary biologists here reexamines the evolutionary history of flowering plants. This important book is the first to interpret the phylogeny of flowering plants in the light of modern knowledge about genetics, developmental biology, and ecology. Flowering Plant Origin, Evolution and Phylogeny brings together the work of an international group of experts to provide a current understanding of research into the origin, early evolution, and basal phylogeny of the flowering plants.
Phylogeny and Evolution of Angiosperms is intended as a summary and review of the many advances made in plant phylogeny in recent years. It brings together the evidence from many disparate sources in a literature that has grown too big for any one scientist to keep abreast of any more, and elaborates the basis for recent changes in the classification of flowering : Richard G.

Phylogenetic analyses of the MIKCC-type MADS-box family, including genes from non-flowering plants, suggest that the increased numbers of these genes in flowering plants is related to their.
