Disclaimer: this page represents my attempt to synthesize various sources of information about plant phylogeny. It is not intended to be taken as a "system" of taxonomic or phylogenetic organization, and it certainly should not be taken as the "true" phylogeny. It is merely what I am currently inclined to believe, a convenient scheme upon which to tack other pieces of information. Please let me know if I am missing anything that you feel ought to be on here, or if you find anything that you disagree with or that you know to be wrong. Thanks!
