Constant grazing changes grass species composition to low growing forms and many dicot
species survive due to reduced competition from grass.
Patterns of codon usage bias in three dicot
and four monocot plant species.

It is hard to see how unidirectional, irreversible "trends" of the sort the Baileyans envisioned could be operating at the level of dicots
as a whole, and in parallel between individual families.

Part of the update of this book reflects the more recent articulation of basal dicots
(Magnolia, etc.) from eudicots.
* Monocots such as corn and wheat, and dicots
such as soybean and cotton are two important groups of crop plants.
Interspersed throughout the epidermal cells in dicots
and indefinite rows in most monocots are guard cells--two elongated cells capable of flexing at the ends to form an opening between them.
This contribution to the flora of Sao Paulo state, Brazil covers an interesting group of 12 flowering plant families, one monocot (Bromeliaceae) and eleven dicots
(Araliaceae, Basellaceae, Bombacaceae, Cactaceae, Ebenaceae, Flacourtiaceae, Menispermaceae, Phytolaccaceae, Podostemaceae, Quiinaceae, Rubiaceae).
