Abstract

Montiaceae (Portulacineae) comprise a clade of at least 268 species plus ca. 27 subspecific taxa primarily of western America and Australia. This work uses existing phylogenetic metadata to elaborate a new cladistic taxonomic synthesis. A total of 24 taxa are validated, nine new and 15 necessary nomenclatural recombinations. Hypotheses of Montiaceae historical biogeographical, ecological, and phenotypic evolution are evaluated in light of recent metadata and in terms of classical, contemporary, and novel systematic and evolutionary epistemology.

Subject Areas

Montiaceae, Portulacineae, phylogeny, phylogeography, Chilean Floristic Region.

Comment: The only substantive change is a brief discussion of ovule number variability among Montiaceae. I reject Darwinist explanations, again, as neither necessary nor sufficient. Besides that, just ortho grammo corrections. Dyslexia and dementia.
