Abstract

After discussing briefly the morphological homogeneity of the classical Sympetalae, where only true sympetaly occurs, the author gives a summary of the systems of orders of Sympetalae by Wettstein (1935), Melchior (1964) and Cronquist (1957, 1965, 1968). He proposes then a new system of orders and families based on the main evolutionary and progressive tendencies prevailing in the living Sympetalae. This system starts with the most simple haplostemonous and tetracyclic orders: the Ligustrales and Plantaginales, to end with the diplostemonous Ericales and finally with the pleiomerous Ebenales.
