Abstract

PUGIALLI, Helena Regina Lima; KAPLAN, Maria Auxiliadora C  and  GOTTLIEB, Otto R. Chemotaxonomy of superorder Zingiberiflorae [sensu Dahlgren] I: flavonoids. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 1993, vol.7, n.2, pp.135-148. ISSN 0102-3306.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-33061993000200009.

The analysis of flavonoids in the order Zingiberales (superorder Zingiberiflorae, Monocotyledonae) reinforced the separation of its families into two groups: group I (Strelitziaceae, Heliconiaceae, Musaceae and Lowiaceae) and group II (Zingiberaceae, Costaceae, Marantaceae and Cannaceae). Chemical and morphological data suggested the relative stages of evolutionary advancement of these families.

Keywords : Monocotyledonae; Zingiberiflorae; Chemotaxonomy; micromolecules.
