Angiosperm Phylogeny

This Powerpoint reduction is designed to introduce you to the phylogeny that has been developed recently by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group. This is a group of plant taxonomists using molecular, morphological, and other information to develop a modern idea of the natural pathway of evolution of angiosperms. The phylogeny shown here is representative of the contributions of many scientists worldwide, and is a "second generation" phylogeny of this type. The source for much of the information presented here is found on the APGII website:
