Record Type: concept
Ranunculales (order) (Magnoliopsida (class), Angiospermae (division), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Order containing 7 families, 199 genera, and 4,445 species of flowering plants. Members of the order range from annual and perennial herbs to herbaceous or woody vines, shrubs, and, in a few cases, trees. Ranunculales is part of a group of families and orders informally called the basal eudicots. One of the main characteristics that distinguish these families and other eudicots from the monocotyledons (species with one embryonic leaf in their seed) and basal angiosperms is the pollen, which typically has three openings (colpi) instead of one. They also lack ethereal oils, which characterize many orders among the basal flowering plants. In Ranunculales, the petals seem to have evolved from staminodes (sterile stamens) rather than bracts (floral leaves), and the carpels are unfused in most members of the order.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Orde van 7 families, 199 genera en 4445 soorten bloeiende planten. De leden van deze orde zijn eenjarige of overblijvende kruiden of kruidachtige of houtachtige klimplanten, struiken en in enkele gevallen bomen. Ranunculales maakt deel uit van een groep families en ordes die men informeel ���basale eudicots' noemt. Een van de belangrijkste kenmerken die deze families en andere eudicots onderscheiden van de monocotyledonen (soorten met één kiemblaadje in hun zaadjes) en basale angiospermen, zijn de pollen, die doorgaans drie openingen (colpi) hebben in plaats van één. Daarnaast bevatten ze geen etherische oliën, in tegenstelling tot veel ordes van basale bloeiende planten. Bij planten uit Ranunculales lijken de bloemblaadjes te zijn geëvolueerd uit staminodia (steriele meeldraden) en niet uit bracteeën (schutbladen), en bij de meeste leden van deze orde zijn de vruchtbladeren niet met elkaar vergroeid.
