Variability of Indicators and Processes in Long Structured Phylogenetic Branch of Angiosperms. Part 1. A General Scheme

  • V. S. Chupov


A general pattern of indicators and possible processes in the long structured phylogenetic branch of angiosperms is considered. The notions of the neontological history of evolution, the anisotomy of the phylogenetic process, cryptaffinic taxa and cryptaffinic transition in the angiosperm phylogeny, and the complex structure of phylogenetic branches are discussed. The mechanisms of the macroevolutionary processes in angiosperms are found to be limited by random mutations and selection. The intracellular processes and mechanisms should be the basis of major macroevolutionary transformations. It is emphasized that the manifestation of the studied indices is different in different links of the long structured phylogenetic branch, which requires a differential approach for their study.
