    Here's a cladogram of carnivorous genera in the Caryophyllales group of plants. Maybe the relationships are accurate, maybe they're not. Working out evolutionary relationships needs a lot of meticulous taxonomy & biochemistry work.

    Especially as scientifically ignored carnivorous plants are. Relative to the amount of research done on other plants.

    Thomas Edison was talking about inventing, but the the same can be said about science; it's 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration. Working out evolutionary relationships involves more than just looking at forms. I did a quick look for an example and found this - Evolutionary ecology of carnivorous plants - that relates nicely to this discussion and also includes the ever valuable list of references. People have probably posted it before, but I didn't notice.

    Um, I don't understand the numbers on the cladogram.
    Anyone care to clarify them for me?

    Those are the results of statistical tests (bootstrap analyses). Here's a website that tells more about the process, but doesn't actually give a nuts & bolts explanation. My knowledge of the subject is awfully shallow.
