Modern conditions are represented by Zone G (surface interval) after about 1500 cal BP, which includes a striking rise in the abundance of Mauritia flexuosa palm pollen and a significant presence of Myristicaceae
Phylogeny, molecular and fossil dating, and biogeographic history of Annonaceae and Myristicaceae
Common familles in these studies were Legulninosae, Pahnae, Moraceae, Sapotaceae, Lauraceae, Lecythidaceae, Chrysobalanaceae, Myristicaceae
and Melastomataceae (Boom, 1986; Spichiger et al.
For example, formononetin has been detected in a number of species in the Fabaceae (Bell and Charlwood, 1981; Taiz and Zeiger, 1991), and there have been a few reports of its occurrence in other plant families, including the the Myristicaceae

Monographic studies of Compsoneura (Janovec, 2000), a Neotropical member of the Myristicaceae
, have enabled the recognition of at least 14 new species (increasing the total to 25 sp ecies), novel distribution records, an entire suite of new morphological characters never before analyzed for the Myristicaceae
, and a new taxonomic system rooted in an ongoing phylogenetic analysis.
