PHYLOGENETICS OF PLEUROTHALLIDINAE:
a phylogeny of small orchids



Phylogenetics

Phylogenetic trees for the Orchidaceae, tribe Maxillarieae and subtribes Oncidiinae and Zygopetalinae are available here along with a non-phylogenetic visualization of the genera of Orchidaceae arranged by subtribe. The phylogenetic tree for the Orchidaceae and the generic visualization are presented with Inxight StarTree™ Software which has specific hardware and software requirements. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to nothing loaded - go here. This will take you to a page with lists of supported operating systems, supported browsers, supported Java, etc., and links to get what you need.).


STARTREE™ VISUALIZATION OF PHYLOGENETICS OF THE ORCHIDACEAE. This will take you to the StarTree™ depiction of the family, where you can click and drag to get to any group, or go to the FIND window on the lower toolbar and search for any taxon. The search item will be identified by a very small red diamond, almost invisible at this stage. As you expand the tree, the diamond will eventually become more visible. It takes at least eight seconds for the image to load.

SEE NOTES ABOUT BUGS AND SUCH BELOW.

Try Stan. panamensis to see the zoomable type specimen image (this is the only one on this page at this time, but the plan is to eventually have all of them). You might want to increase the default font size by clicking on the capital letter A in the lower tool bar. Additional exemplar groups to take a look at will be added soon, as well as additional links. As anything you click on might open in another window, if you click on one thing, then another, you will need to choose the proper windows to see the last thing you clicked on - otherwise you might think the link is broken when it is really there.

MAXILLARIEAE - phylogenetic chart and discussion.

ONCIDIINAE - phylogenetic chart and discussion. This is actually a part of the Maxillarieae page, so don't let the top header confuse you.

ZYGOPETALINAE - phylogenetic chart and discussion. This is actually a part of the Maxillarieae page, so don't let the top header confuse you.

More links to phylogenetic works will be added as they are ready.

GENERA OF ORCHIDACEAE ARRANGED BY SUBTRIBE - this is a taxonomically, not phylogenetically, arranged StarTree™ visualization of all the genera of the Orchidaceae.

If everything loaded, fine. If nothing loaded - go here. This will take you to a page with lists of supported operating systems, supported browsers, supported Java, etc., and links to get what you need.
