2 WHAT IS THE NATURAL SYSTEM? A phylogenetic system of organizing flowering plants with the use of genetic techniques. A phylogenetic system of organizing flowering plants with the use of genetic techniques. Besses theory was based off of evolution. Besses theory was based off of evolution.

3 THE NATURAL SYSTEM Besses cactus was based on his 28 rules, which show the evolutionary trends in angiosperm.

The most direct path represents the actual evolutionary history of a given group.

4 THE NATURAL SYSTEM The most primitive, original flower was believed to have had many separate petals, stamens, and carpels. The most primitive, original flower was believed to have had many separate petals, stamens, and carpels. As they evolved the parts of the flowers either fused together, reduced, or became absent. As they evolved the parts of the flowers either fused together, reduced, or became absent. The simple structures are not primitive, but have become simple as a result of a reduction from more complex parts.

5 THE NATURAL SYSTEM An example of the primitive flower would be the Ranunculus, buttercup flowers. An example of the primitive flower would be the Ranunculus, buttercup flowers.

6 THE NATURAL SYSTEM A more advanced type of flowering plant would be the catkin inflorescences. A more advanced type of flowering plant would be the catkin inflorescences.

7 Natural System of Plant Classification Charles Bessey By: Thursday lab

8 Bessey Published Work: The Phylogenetic Taxonomy of Flowering Plants Published Work: The Phylogenetic Taxonomy of Flowering Plants

9 Charles Bessey He developed a set of rules or dicta stating which characteristics were primitive an which were advanced in flowering plants. He developed a set of rules or dicta stating which characteristics were primitive an which were advanced in flowering plants.

10 Natural System A natural system is one which reflects the evolutionary relationships of the organisms. In this type of classification, all the members of a category (family, order, etc.) are known or presumed to be monophyletic, meaning they share a common ancestor.

11 Those who started the Natural System were observing overall resemblances amongst plants, then making evolutionary connections. Similar to differences amongst the five kingdoms.
