Flowering plants 3
Clusia lanceolata is one of more than 70,000 species of flowering plants in the rosid clade, which a new University of Florida study shows radiated rapidly about 90 million years ago. This radiation set the stage for the diversification of other plant and animal species. The study appeared in the online edition of the Proceedings of the Natural Academy of Sciences journal the week of Feb. 9.
