Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Cultivated carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus) has 25-about 40 related wild species in the genus Daucus depending on the classification. It is part of a widely distributed and taxonomically complex family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae) containing 466 genera and 3,820 species that is one of the largest families of seed plants. Members of the Apiaceae, particularly the genus Daucus, have been the subject of intensive recent molecular studies on the structure and genetics of plastids and mitochondria. This paper summarizes these studies in Daucus and places them in the context of others in the angiosperms.
