Betulaceae (family) (Fagales (order), Rosanae (superorder), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Betulaceae is the birch family of flowering plants, usually placed in the order Fagales; some authorities, however, have placed the family in the order Betulales. The family contains six genera and 120-150 species. Although not done in this hierarchy, it is elsewhere sometimes divided into two subfamilies: Betuloideae, with the genera Betula (birch) and Alnus (alder); and Coryloideae, with the genera Carpinus (hornbeam), Corylus (hazel, or filbert), Ostrya, and Ostryopsis.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Betulaceae is de berkenfamilie van bloeiende planten, die doorgaans in de orde Fagales wordt ondergebracht. Sommige gezaghebbende instanties rekenen de familie echter tot de orde Betulales. De familie omvat zes genera en 120-150 soorten. Binnen deze hiĆ«rarchie wordt er niet voor gekozen, maar elders wordt soms een onderverdeling in twee subfamilies aangehouden: Betuloideae, met de genera Betula (berk) en Alnus (els), en Coryloideae, met de genera Carpinus (haagbeuk), Corylus (hazelaar), Ostrya en Ostryopsis.
