Abstract

The systematic relationships of Lactoridaceae are problematical, with alternative assignments to Magnoliales, Laurales, and Piperales. Phenetic analyses suggest that Lactoridaceae are best accomodated within Magnoliales and are most closely related to Annonaceae. Cladistic analyses indicate that the family is a relatively derived member of the Magnoliales, with affinities to Annonaceae, Eupomatiaceae, Himantandraceae, and Myristicaceae. These analyses together with fossil pollen data are used to interpret the phylogeny of Lactoridaceae and its relatives.
