Classification, Phylogeny, and Biogeography
The information in Chapter 1 offered an overview of the general biology of Asteraceae and their distribution. What has not been discussed are changing concepts of tribes and subfamilies, phylogeny, and biogeography of the family. These are the syntheses of information about groups and subgroups in space and evolutionary time. This chapter begins with general concepts of classification, phylogeny, and biogeography, designed for flavonoid chemists who might lack this background. The chapter then turns to details of these same issues.
