Families in Amborellales
1) Amborellaceae

Amborella trichopoda is a rare, vesselless, understory shrub or small tree found only on the island of New Caledonia. It is of great interest in flora taxonomy because modern molecular phylogenetics data place it at or near the base of the flowering plants. That is, it represents a line of flowering plants that very early on diverged (about 130 million years ago) from all the other extant species of flowering plants. Comparing characteristics of this extant basal angiosperm, more derived flowering plants, and the fossil flowering plants may provide clues about the characteristics of early flowering plants and how they have evolved, or changed through time.
