Three plant species for my ten best of everything: wheat, pine and arabidopsis

Suggestions needed for the ten best of everything: plants for botanists

I’m writ­ing an AoBBlog post (or maybe posts) on ten plants that all bot­an­ists should know quite a lot about. Criteria for inclu­sion include import­ance in the envir­on­ment, import­ance to people as food or cul­tur­ally, sci­entific interest, global nature, and evol­u­tion­ary pos­i­tion. What are your suggestions?
