Thiele and Ladiges' Taxonomic Arrangement of Banksia - Legacy


In 1999, George published a revised taxonomic arrangement of Banksia as part of the Flora of Australia series of monographs. He stated that "the infrageneric classification and systematic sequence presented here are modified from that of George (1981) and take into account new data revealed in the work of Thiele & Ladiges (1996)". However, Thiele and Ladiges' arrangement was largely rejected. None of the four promotions to species rank was accepted, and none of the thirteen infrageneric taxa introduced by Thiele and Ladiges was retained. However a number of Australian herbaria have continued to follow Thiele and Ladiges on some points, for example by recognising the four species that they promoted.
