Why are there so many flowering plants? A multi-scale analysis of plant diversification

John Wiens & Tania Hernandez

Angiosperms are only one among 10 major land plant clades (phyla), but include ~90% of land plant species. However, most studies that have tried to identify which traits might explain the remarkable diversification of angiosperms have focused only on richness patterns within angiosperms, and tested only one or a few traits at a...
