This book synthesizes what has been learned over the past 75 years about the tarweeds and opens the doors to decades of additional productive research. It is truly outstanding.
Peter H. Raven Foreword, Tarweeds and Silverswords January Author: Carlquist, Sherwin, Baldwin. The continental tarweeds show a remarkable diversification with respect to glandular (and non-glandular) trichomes, as shown in my book, “Comparative Plant Anatomy.” There are types other than those shown.
The book Tarweeds and Silverswords represents a collaborative effort to present a synthesis of what is known about the Madiinae.

About this book. Tracks the spread of tarweeds from the Rocky Mountains, through the hills, valleys, and offshore islands of California and Mexico, to the islands of the Hawaiian archipelago. Their evolution has been achieved by a reworking of chromosome structure.

Silverswords – Argyroxiphium Closely related to the Haleakala silversword (Argyroxiphium sandwicense subsp. macrocephalum) and in the family Asteraceae, the Mauna Kea silversword is a member of the silversword alliance, a group of approximately 50 species in three genera, all endemic to the Hawaiian diverse morphologies belie extremely close genetic Family: Asteraceae.
Flavonoids of the Sunflower Family Asteraceae Book Summary: Flavonoids are secondary plant products that have previously been shown to be helpful in determining relationships among plant groups. This work presents comprehensively the occurrence, patterns of variation, and systematic and evolutionary importance of flavonoids in the sunflower family (Asteraceae), the largest.

She explains that the story of these plants, in the sunflower family, is an amazing example of adaptive radiation. Tarweeds in California are typically small annuals to perennial shrubs with. In evolutionary biology, adaptive radiation is a process in which organisms diversify rapidly from an ancestral species into a multitude of new forms, particularly when a change in the environment makes new resources available, creates new challenges, or opens new environmental niches.
Starting with a recent single ancestor, this process results in the speciation and phenotypic. The ancestors of the silverswords had more ecological opportunities. There were fewer trees in the areas in which the ancestors of the tarweeds settled.
Silverswords had a more behaviorally complex mating system, and thus there were more opportunities for the evolution of prezygotic reproductive isolation.
