Most classification systems today separate the extant gymnosperms into four distinct divisions: Coniferophyta, Cycadophyta, Ginkgophyta, and Gnetophyta (Flora of North America, 1993b).
On the contrary, botanists classify it in the phylum Gnetophyta, along with Gnetum and Ephedra, rather than in the phylum Coniferophyta.
