Classification of flowering plants

The system used at the department is that published by the "Angiosperm Phylogeny Group II" in Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society 141: 399-436 (2003) and is an update of the "Angiosperm Phylogeny Group" classification in Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden 85: 531-553 (1998).

Several families are deliberately not classified to order to avoid undesirable non-monophyletic taxa and when phylogenetic relationships are unclear.

Fore a brief introduction to phylogeny and systematics of floweing plants at and above the family level, see Bremer, Bremer & Thulin: Introduction to Phylogeny and Systematics of Flowering Plants (see box below for details).
