Focusing on the wild carrot (Daucus Carota) which is part of the Daucinae group, its next closest group of relatives according to OneZoom is Torilidinae. The Torilidinae and Daucinae merge into the larger group of Scandiceae.

One adaptation that all the plants in our project share is that they flower, a characteristic of angiosperms by definition.

A unique adaptation of the wild carrot (Daucus Carota) is that it produces many flowers that seem to be arranged in a hexagonal pattern like a snowflake. This could be in order to increase surface area for pollen production and transmission onto insects.
