eFloraNZ and the Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group

How is the eFloraNZ responding to the classification of ferns and lycophytes that was recently proposed by the global experts in the Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group?

This article, from the New Zealand Botanical Society Newsletter, explains the current plan for the fern and lycophyte chapters of the eFloraNZ, which would see not all of the PPG’s recommendations adopted: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5xl58ntkqwcyr82/eFloraNZ_PPG.pdf.

The relevant genera are Lycopodiella, Lycopodium, Botrychium, Trichomanes, Cyathea, and Blechnum.

About half of the eFloraNZ’s chapters on ferns and lycophytes have been published: http://www.nzflora.info/publications.html
