Throughout Twining’s two volumes, most descriptions included mentions of how some plants had affinities or connections with others in other tribes. This diagram illustrates all those likenesses connected in one network.
Only likenesses that were referenced by name are included (e.g. “This Tribe has affinity with Amaryllidaceæ and Hæmodoraceæ…” as in Bromeliaceæ, the Pine-Apple tribe) and not general statements that didn’t specify a name (e.g. “The succulent nature of this tribe connects it with several others.” as in Crassulaceæ, the Houseleek tribe).
