The Fagales are an order of flowering plants, including some of the best known trees. This article is about the taxonomic rank for the sequence of species in a taxonomic list see Taxonomic order In scientific classification used The flowering plants or angiosperms ( Angiospermae or Magnoliophyta) are the most widespread group A tree is a perennial Woody plant. It is most often defined as a woody plant that has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground on a single main stem or The order name is derived from genus Fagus, Beeches. A genus (plural genera from Γένος Latin genus "descent family type gender" is a low-level Taxonomic They belong among the rosid group of dicotyledons. Dicotyledons, or "dicots", is a name for a group of Flowering plants whose Seed typically has two embryonic leaves or Cotyledons There The families currently included are as follows:
Older texts such as the Kew checklist (see external link below) which followed the Cronquist system only included four families (Betulaceae, Corylaceae, Fagaceae, Ticodendraceae; Corylaceae now being included within Betulaceae). Betulaceae, or the Birch Family, includes six genera of Deciduous nut -bearing Trees and Shrubs including the Birches Casuarinaceae is a family of dicotyledonous Flowering plants placed in the order Fagales, consisting of 3 or 4 genera and approximately 70 The family Fagaceae, or beech family, comprises about 900 species of both Evergreen and Deciduous trees and shrubs which are characterized by alternate The Juglandaceae, also known as the Walnut Family is a family of Trees or sometimes shrubs in the order Fagales The Myricaceae is a small family of Dicotyledonous Shrubs and small Trees in the order Fagales. Nothofagus, also known as the southern beeches, is a genus of about 35 Species of Trees and shrubs native to the temperate oceanic The Rhoipteleaceae, is a family of Flowering plants. The family consists of only one species grouped into one genus the Horsetail tree ( Rhoiptelea Ticodendron incognitum is the only Species of Ticodendron, and the only member of the family Ticodendraceae. The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, usually referred to simply as Kew Gardens, are extensive Gardens and botanical glasshouses between Richmond and A system of plant taxonomy, the Cronquist system is a scheme for the classification of flowering plants (or Angiosperms) The other families were split into three different orders, placed among the Hamamelidae. Hamamelididae is a Botanical name at the rank of subclass. A well-known system that used this name is the Cronquist system, although in the disallowed The Casuarinales comprised the single family Casuarinaceae, the Juglandales comprised the Juglandaceae and Rhoipteleaceae, and the Myricales comprised the remaining forms (plus Balanops). Balanops is a Genus of Flowering plants. The nine species are Trees or Shrubs found in New Caledonia, Fiji The change is due to studies suggesting that the Myricales, so defined, are paraphyletic to the other two groups. In Phylogenetics, a group of organisms is said to be paraphyletic if the group contains its most recent common ancestor but does not contain all
