Ginkgoaceae

The Ginkgoaceae is a family of gymnosperms which appeared during the Mesozoic Era, of which the only extant representative is Ginkgo biloba, which is for this reason sometimes regarded as a living fossil. Formerly, however, there were several other genera, and forests of ginkgo existed. Because leaves can take such diverse forms within a single species, these are a poor measure of diversity, but wood structure points to the existence of diverse ginkgo forests in ancient times.[1]

Ginkgoidae

Ginkgoidae is a subclass of Equisetopsida in the sense used by Mark W. Chase and James L. Reveal in their 2009 article "A phylogenetic classification of the land plants to accompany APG III."[1] This subclass contains the single extant genus Ginkgo under order Ginkgoales, family Ginkgoaceae.[2] Its only extant species is Ginkgo biloba, the Maidenhair Tree.

Phylogeny

The following diagram shows a likely phylogenic relationship between subclass Ginkgoidae and the other Equisetopsida subclasses.[2]
