Annals of Botany is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal, founded in 1887, that publishes research articles, brief communications, and reviews in all areas of botany.
The Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society is a scientific journal publishing original papers relating to the taxonomy of all plant groups and fungi, including anatomy, biosystematics, cytology, ecology, ethnobotany, electron microscopy, morphogenesis, palaeobotany, palynology and phytochemistry.
A cladogram (from Greek clados "branch" and gramma "character") is a diagram used in cladistics to show relations among organisms.
In biological classification, class (classis) is a taxonomic rank, as well as a taxonomic unit, a taxon, in that rank.
The order Cyatheales, which includes the tree ferns, is a taxonomic division of the fern class, Polypodiopsida.
The Embryophyta are the most familiar group of green plants that form vegetation on earth.
Equisetidae is a subclass of Polypodiopsida (ferns).
Equisetopsida is the name of a class of plants that traditionally contains the single genus Equisetum (horsestails).
The euphyllophytes are a clade of plants within the tracheophytes (the vascular plants).
Eusporangiate ferns are vascular spore plants, whose sporangia arise from several epidermal cells and not from a single cell as in leptosporangiate ferns.
The ferns of the order Gleicheniales are – like all ferns and the related horsetails – sometimes placed in an infradivision Monilophytes of subdivision Euphyllophytina, allowing for more precise phylogenetic arrangement of the tracheophytes.
The Hymenophyllaceae (filmy ferns and bristle ferns) are a family of two to nine genera (depending on classification system) Phytotaxa 19: 7-54.
The International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT) promotes an understanding of plant biodiversity, facilitates international communication of research between botanists, and oversees matters of uniformity and stability in plant names.
Leptosporangiate ferns are the largest group of living ferns, including some 11000 species worldwide.
Marattiidae is a subclass of class Polypodiopsida (ferns).
Mark Wayne Chase (born 1951) is a US-born British botanist.
Molecular phylogenetics is the branch of phylogeny that analyzes genetic, hereditary molecular differences, predominately in DNA sequences, to gain information on an organism's evolutionary relationships.
Nature is a British multidisciplinary scientific journal, first published on 4 November 1869.
Ophioglossidae is a subclass of Polypodiopsida (ferns).
The Osmundaceae (royal fern family) is a family of four to six extant genera and 18–25 known species.
Phytotaxa is a peer-reviewed scientific journal for rapid publication on any aspect of systematic botany.
Plants are mainly multicellular, predominantly photosynthetic eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae.
Plant morphology or phytomorphology is the study of the physical form and external structure of plants.
The order Polypodiales encompasses the major lineages of polypod ferns, which comprise more than 80% of today's fern species.
Pteridium aquilinum (bracken, brake or common bracken), also known as eagle fern, and Eastern brakenfern, is a species of fern occurring in temperate and subtropical regions in both hemispheres.
A pteridophyte is a vascular plant (with xylem and phloem) that disperses spores (and lacks seeds).
The order Salviniales (formerly known as the Hydropteridales and including the former Marsileales) is an order of ferns in the class Polypodiopsida.
Schizaeales is an order of fern (class Pteridopsida).
Sensu is a Latin word meaning "in the sense of".
A sister group or sister taxon is a phylogenetic term denoting the closest relatives of another given unit in an evolutionary tree.
Systematic Botany is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering the study of systematic botany.
Vascular plants (from Latin vasculum: duct), also known as tracheophytes (from the equivalent Greek term trachea) and also higher plants, form a large group of plants (c. 308,312 accepted known species) that are defined as those land plants that have lignified tissues (the xylem) for conducting water and minerals throughout the plant.
