What are angiosperms?

Angiosperms, commonly referred to as flowering plants, are the most prevalent land-based plants.  With at least 260,000 living species classified in 453 families, angiosperms occupy every habitat on Earth except extreme environments.  The numerous theories regarding angiosperm evolution leave the subject an arguable debate in the biological field.  By studying the evolution of flowering plants, we are better able to understand the form they have taken today.  This site is designed to inform viewers on the origins of flowering plants, while explaining the multiple phylums angiosperms are related to.
