In most taxonomies, the flowering plants are treated as a coherent group. The most popular descriptive name has been Angiospermae (Angiosperms), with Anthophyta ("flowering plants") a second choice. These names are not linked to any rank. The [[Wettstein system]] and the [[Engler system]] use the name Angiospermae, at the assigned rank of subdivision.  The [[Reveal system]] treated flowering plants as subdivision [[Magnoliophytina]] (Frohne & U. Jensen ''ex'' Reveal, Phytologia 79: 70 1996), but later split it to [[Magnoliopsida]], [[Liliopsida]] and [[Rosopsida]]. The [[Takhtajan system]] and [[Cronquist system]] treat this group at the rank of [[division]], leading to the name Magnoliophyta. The [[Dahlgren system]] and [[Thorne system]] treat this group at the rank of class, leading to the name Magnoliopsida. However, the [[APG system]] of 1998 and the [[APG II system]] of 2003 do not treat angiosperms as a formal taxon but rather an informal clade.
