The taxa for the Gundelia tournefortii pollen are as follows: Kingdom = Plantae, Division = Tracheophyta, Subdivision = Spermatophytina, Class = Angiospermae, Subclass = Dicotyledoneae, Order = Asterales, Family = Asteraceae, Genus = Gundelia, Species = tournefortii. The family Asteraceae is commonly known as the sunflower family; Gundelia is therefore closely related to those familiar flowers. An everyday rose, such as the brier rose (Rosa canina), for example, follows the same taxonomic classifications as tournefortii until order, when it splits off into Order = Rosales, Family = Rosaceae, Genus = Rosa, Species = canina.
