Senecio Angulatus Trellis
''Senecio'' is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family (Asteraceae) that includes ragworts and groundsels. The scientific name, ''wikt:senecio, Senecio'', means "old man". Variously circumscribed (taxonomy), circumscribed taxonomically, the genus ''Senecio'' is one of the largest genera of flowering plants. Taxonomy The traditional circumscription of ''Senecio'' is artificial, being polyphyletic, even in its new circumscription which is based on genetic data. Despite the separation of many species into other genera, the genus still contains species and is one of the List of the largest genera of flowering plants, largest genera of flowering plants. As no morphological Synapomorphy, synapomorphies are known to determine which species belong to the genus or not, no exact species number is known. The genus has an almost worldwide distribution and evolved in the mid- to late Miocene. Morphology The flower heads are normally rayed with the heads borne in branched cluste ...

Thorn (botany)
In plant morphology, thorns, spines, and prickles, and in general spinose structures (sometimes called ''spinose teeth'' or ''spinose apical processes''), are hard, rigid extensions or modifications of leaf, leaves, roots, plant stem, stems or plant bud, buds with sharp, stiff ends, and generally serve the same function: physically plant defense against herbivory, deterring animals from eating the plant material. Description In common language the terms are used more or less interchangeably, but in botanical terms, thorns are derived shoots (so that they may or may not be branched, they may or may not have leaves, and they may or may not arise from a bud),Simpson, M.
