TAXONOMY,
Engler and Prantl system
, 1924.


This is Adolf Engler and Karl Anton Eugen Prantl's system from1924.  It was published in Syllabus der Pflanzenfamilien, and is also known as the Phylogenetic System. This edition is the the Angiospermae part, slightly modified by H. Melchior in 1964, and is also known as the Melchior System.

 The plants were sorted by the basis of complexity of floral morphology. Characters like a perianth with one whorl, unisexual flowers and pollination by wind were considered primitive as compared to perianth with two whorls, bisexual flowers and pollination by insects. This was the first major Phylogenetic Classification and that gave a slightly changed August Wilhelm Eichler system. They dealt with the primitive groups as well. It is in line with Adolphe-Théodore Brongniart's 1843 work.
