Molecular Systematics - APG III System of Classification of Flowering Plants


Still in many countries 'Bentham & Hooker System of Classification' is widely used across the world as it is useful to identify the plants in the field. However, this system of classification does not speak about evolutionary relationship of plants.
A modern system for flowering plants was formed in 1990’s by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group which involves few eminent botanists from across the world. Some countries are now using APG III system.  Herbarium arranged as per linear sequence of DNA and starts with Amborellaceae-1 and ends with Apiaceae-413.
