Fabaceae (family) (Fabales (order), Rosanae (superorder), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Family of flowering plants (angiosperms), within the order Fabales. Fabaceae, which is the third largest family among the angiosperms after Orchidaceae (orchid family) and Asteraceae (aster family), consists of more than 700 genera and about 20,000 species of trees, shrubs, vines, and herbs and is worldwide in distribution. The most important commercial species include Glycine max (soybean), Pisum sativum (garden pea), Arachis hypogaea (peanut [groundnut]), and Medicago sativa (alfalfa [lucerne]). Most woody species are tropical; herbaceous (i.e., nonwoody) species occur mainly in temperate regions. The leaves usually are pinnately compound (feather formed), sometimes trifoliate (with three leaflets), or palmate (the leaflets radiating from a common point). The leaves of a few species are simple or reduced to scales. The fruit is typically a legume, or pod, which splits open as it dries, releasing the seeds.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Familie van bloeiende planten (angiospermae) binnen de orde Fabales. Fabaceae - de op twee na grootste familie onder de angiospermae na de Orchidaceae (orchideeënfamilie) en de Asteraceae (asterfamilie) - bestaat uit meer dan 700 genera en ongeveer 20.000 soorten bomen, struiken, klimplanten en kruiden. Ze komen voor in de hele wereld. De belangrijkste commerciële soorten zijn Glycine max (soja), Pisum sativum (tuinerwt), Arachis hypogaea (pinda [aardnoot]) en Medicago sativa (alfalfa [luzerne]). De meeste houtige soorten zijn tropisch. Overblijvende (niet-houtige) soorten komen vooral voor in gematigde gebieden. De bladeren zijn meestal veervormig en soms driebladig of gelobd (de bladeren verspreiden zich vanuit een gemeenschappelijke punt). De bladeren van enkele soorten zijn eenvoudig of niet meer dan een dop. De vrucht is meestal een peulvrucht of een peul die openbarst als hij wordt gedroogd, waardoor de zaden vrijkomen.
