This quantity includes a whole systematic remedy of the flowering plant order Asterales, comprising 12 households with approx. 1,720 genera and approximately 26,300 species. The order contains Compositae because the greatest kinfolk of flowering crops.

Based on conventional stories, numerous of the constituent households have lengthy been well-known as being heavily interrelated. The inclusion within the order of Alseuosmiaceae, Argophyllaceae, Carpodetaceae, Phellinaceae and Rousseaceae is the outcome commonly of recent advances in molecular systematics. id keys are supplied for all genera, and certain phylogenetic relationships are mentioned commonly.

The wealth of data contained during this quantity makes it an fundamental resource for all operating within the fields of natural and utilized plant sciences.

Example text

Hist. Nat. 2: 350 (1803). Perennial or rarely annual herbs, glabrous; stems erect or decumbent, scapose or ramified. Leaves alternate or clustered in a rosette, entire to pinnatisect, linear-lanceolate, laciniate, dentate or pectinate, or spathulate with dentate or crenate lamina. Capitula terminal, solitary or in groups of few, then shortly pedunculate to almost sessile, sometimes densely surrounded by foliar leaves, rarely scapose. Terminal capitula sometimes overtopped by axillary shoots, in some species terminal and lateral scapes forming a disk-like to hemispherical syncephalium; involucral bracts 5–10, united from basis to middle or beyond, exceptionally free, triangular to lanceolate, sometimes laciniate; receptacle flat to convex or conical, inflated in some species; receptacular bracts free, linear to lanceolate, or absent.

Seasonality is mirrored in the formation of growth rings observed in Boopis anthemoides (Carlquist and DeVore 1998). The family exhibits an unusually wide range of mesomorphy values. This may be explicable by the very different habitats the plants live in. Wood anatomy is not yet sufficiently known to be used systematically. It is believed to largely reflect autapomorphic ecological adaptations (Carlquist and DeVore 1998). The primary cortex and the central pith are rich in clustered Ca-oxalate crystals.
