Most twodimensional schemes are presented merely to show relative similarities and differences between taxa, although attempts are sometimes made to include the "lines of evolution" for the taxa concerned, usually with- out time connotations. Two-dimensional phylogenetic diagrams The two-dimensional presentation is popular because it is simple to construct and need not reflect phylogeny, though it would usually imply that the presentation was the best approximation from the data at hand. One popular form of the two-dimensional scheme is that shown for the genus Dicentra (Fig.

Classification of vascular plants Because of the complex morphological variation of the vasmost extensively and successfully studied from a phylogenetic standpoint. This is particularly true of the flowering plants, and a number of systems of classifications, usually to the level of family, have been proposed for this group (Lawrence, cular plants, this group has been the 1951, for review; Cronquist, 1957, 1960; Benson, 1957; Hutchinson, 1959; Takhtajian, 1959; and others). However, only a few phylogenetic systems have gained wide acceptance or attention, the more important being the systems of Engler, Bessey, and Hutchinson.

At least one worker (McNair, 1945) has ventured, though prematurely, into this field of conjecture, (1959), in setting forth his views and others are sure to Many follow. more recently proposed classificatory systems are accompanied by schematic diagrams showing the relative taxonomic positions of the taxa treated. Lam (1936) has written an excellent summary of such presentations, some of which are rather bizarre. of the Little advance in this type of symbolization has occurred since Lam's review of the subject.
