Related to Magnoliids: Magnoliidae


Any of various flowering plants that are neither eudicotyledons nor monocotyledons, having embryos with two cotyledons and usually long, broad leaves and large flowers, and including magnolias, the avocado tree, and the cinnamon tree.

[New Latin Magnoliidae, name of the subclass including magnoliid species in several taxonomic systems : Magnolia, type genus of the subclass; see magnolia + -idae, suff. forming taxonomic names (from pl. of Latin -idēs, masculine patronymic suff., from Greek).]

A total of 385 native species of vascular plants are reported in the Archipelago, 10 of which are lycophytes and monilophytes, 42 monocots, 8 magnoliids and 325 eudicots (Gonzalez et al.
Interesting, these authors also estimate that these two orders have higher speciation rates but higher extinction rates with respect to other magnoliids, including the orders Magnoliales and Laurales.
For phylogenetic clade four groups were considered following the AGP III system (2009): monocots (commelinids), eudicots, Fabaceae as a special case of eudicots, and magnoliids.
All large (informal) groups in angiosperms such as magnoliids, monocots, basal eudicots, rosids and asterids show a patchy image with both positive and negative observations.

monocots, magnoliids, eudicots) appear to have also small ancestral genomes, showing many possible instances of genome size increase and decrease in clades that occupy derived positions of the trees (Soltis et al.
1), it becomes clear that the fin-winged condition is most prevalent among Eudicots, but occurs occasionally in Magnoliids (Hernandiaceae: Illigera), and monocots (e.
Hernandiaeeae This Lauralean family is the only member of the Magnoliids sensu APG (2003) that has winged fruits.
This was a strong argument for the later origin of "higher" dicots than magnoliids (and monocots).
Therefore, staminodes will have different positions and functions in acyclic magnoliids, polysymmetric rosids, or zygomorphic asterids.
