I don't know of one offhand; but it shouldn't be difficult to create one
using a good published paper. Personally, I might go with an early
evolution of land plants study by Mishler and others....

Subject: MacClade Examples for Plants?
Dear Plant Ed,
I am presenting some very elementary aspects of cladistics to a class,
and I'd like to use MacClade for a live demonstration. The program
comes with a very nice data matrix and some sample trees dealing with
the evolution of the vertebrates; does anyone know of a similar
ready-made data matrix for plants? Perhaps for dividing up the major
groups of plants? I'd love to see a URL or some data...
