Abstract Detail



A synthesis of new paleontological and phylogenomic perspectives on gymnosperm evolution

Nagalingum, Nathalie [1], Burleigh, Gordon [2].

The Gymnosperm Phylogeny Group.

At the conclusion of this colloquium, we are launching the Gymnosperm Phylogeny Group (GPG)—a community effort to generate a consensus classification of gymnosperms and highlight the areas of uncertainty in the classification. During this session we will begin the first discussion of the GPG. Our aim is to prepare a publication in the coming months. Please join us if you are interested in participating in this group, and all are welcome.
