In each case, data from molecular, morphological, and paleontological approaches are presented, backed by recent progress and new findings, together with proposals for future research. A guide to the latest in plant systematics, heightening awareness of prospective future problems.... large data sets of DNA sequences have greatly clarified the broad picture of angiosperm relationships and evolution. ... two data sets is that based on the chloroplast gene rbcL, with sequences representing 499 species of seed plants [ 1].
