About This Special Issue
We would like to publish 6 articles for the special issue of The New Evolutionary Theory & Practice, in order to increase the new theory and new methods of the new science of Evolutionomy published in the journal last year, establish the evolutionary system of Fructophyta D. L. Fu & H. Fu, Magnoliaceae Juss. and Yulania Spach, settle the puzzle of evolutionomy of fruit plants, solve some long-standing taxonomical problems on Magnoliaceae and provide some scientific methods for genomic evolutionomy. The article titles are listed as follows: 01_An evolutionary particularity principle for evolutionary system of classes of Fructophyta; 02_An analysis of chloroplast genomic and morphological evolutionomy of Yulania subsect. Cylindricae (Magnoliaceae); 03_An analysis of chloroplast genomic and morphological evolutionomy of Yulania sprengeri and confusable species (Magnoliaceae); 04_Two PEL of matK of cpDNA of genera of Magnoliaceae; 05_Two PEL of trnL-ndhJ of cpDNA of Yulania baotaina, a new species (Magnoliaceae) from China; 06_Two PEL of cpDNA of Magnolia accisa, a new species (Magnoliaceae) from China.
Aims and Scope:
  1. Evolutionary particularity principle
  2. Evolutionary continuity principle
  3. Evolutionary system
  4. PEL (particularly evolutionary loci)
  5. Fructophyta
  6. Magnoliaceae
  7. New taxa

    Abstract: To scientifically solve the taxonomical confusion of Yulania sprengeri (Pamp.) D. L. Fu in the world, the chloroplast genomic sequences of four confusable species were assembled and compared with the other species of Yulania Spach by means of the typical algorithm. The results indicated that the evolutionary system of Yulania Spach includes four na... Show More
