Genetic analysis carried out after APG II maintains that the sister to all other Asterids are the Cornales. A second order that split from the base of the Asterids are the Ericales. The remaining orders cluster into two clades, the Lamiids and the Campanulids. The structure of both of these clades has changed in APG III. The phylogenetic tree presented hereafter has been proposed by the APG III-project.
