    Acorus is a genus of monocot flowering genus was once placed within the family Araceae (aroids), but more recent classifications place it in its own family Acoraceae and order Acorales, of which it is the sole genus of the oldest surviving line of older studies indicated that it was placed in a lineage (the order Alismatales), that also includes aroids (Araceae Family: Acoraceae, Martinov.   Accelerated Evolution of Flowering Plants. To reconstruct the rice, maize, sorghum, wheat, and barley genomes from the five ancestral proto-chromosomes containing 9, genes, we propose an evolutionary model that involves 4 major (α, β, δ, and γ) events named after the nomenclature defined in studies of the A. thaliana genome evolution (25).Cited by:

The flowering plants, also known as angiosperms, Angiospermae, or Magnoliophyta, are the most diverse group of land plants, with 64 orders, families, approximat known genera andknown species. Like gymnosperms, angiosperms are seed-producing are distinguished from gymnosperms by characteristics including flowers, endosperm within the seeds, Clade: Tracheophytes.

The evolution of plants has resulted in a wide range of complexity, from the earliest algal mats, through multicellular marine and freshwater green algae, terrestrial bryophytes, lycopods and ferns, to the complex gymnosperms and angiosperms of today.

While many of the earliest groups continue to thrive, as exemplified by red and green algae in marine environments, more recently derived groups. Cambridge Core - Plant Sciences - Plant Variation and Evolution - by David BriggsCited by: 5.

Variation and Evolution in Plants is a book written by G. Ledyard Stebbins, published in It is one of the key publications embodying the modern synthesis of evolution and genetics, as the first comprehensive publication to discuss the relationship between genetics and natural selection in plants.

Photo: Yvonne Arremo/NRM Angiosperms (flowering plants) are ecologically dominant in most terrestrial vegetation today, accounting for the bulk of the primary productivity on land.

They constitute the most species-rich group of land plants that ever existed, with an overwhelming morphological diversity of flowers and growth forms ranging from the tiniest duckweed to the.

The same geological period is also marked by the appearance of many modern groups of insects, including pollinating insects that played a key role in ecology and the evolution of flowering plants.

Flowers are relatively recent innovations. The first land plants arose around million years ago, but fossil evidence indicates that only after another million years did the angiosperms (flowering plants) appear.

However, following their appearance in the fossil record of the early Cretaceous period, the angiosperms spread geographically from their point of origin in the tropics and.

Many botanists have been lured to destruction in attempting to discover the Eldorado of Angio-sperm Phylogeny.

[Arthur Cronquist] -- The spelling of family names in this edition follows the list in the edition of International Code of Botanical Nomenclature.

Geological sites of exceptional fossil preservation are becoming a focus of research on root evolution because they retain edaphic and ecological context, and the remains of plant soft tissues are preserved in some.

New information is emerging on the origins of rooting systems, their interactions with fungi, and their nature and diversity in the earliest forest by: Although plants comprise more than 90% of all visible life, and land plants and algae collectively make up the most morphologically, physiologically, and ecologically diverse group of organisms on earth, books on evolution instead tend to focus on animals.

This organismal bias has led to an incomplete and often erroneous understanding of evolutionary theory. Because plants grow and reproduce. The Evolution and Classification of Flowering Plants. Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston.
