From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. Saffron is classified into Magnoliophyta division, class Liliopsida and order Asparagales.
C Jeffrey, as Flowering plants: Liliaceae; Alliaceae; Amaryllidaceae; Iridaceae; Orchidaceae; Trilliaceae AlismalesNaiadalesorder Alismalesorder Illiopsida – an order of aquatic monocotyledonous herbaceous plants. Quantitave studies of inter-relationships amongst the Liliatae. Oliver and Boyd, Publication of the name is credited to Scopoli in In the previous chapter we learned how to separate the two major flowering plant groups: Switch to new thesaurus. The sheath of the leaf surrounds and protects the shoot.
Grasses display two types of leaves: These vegetative leaves typically surround the culm as a sheaththen diverge outward at the “collar” as a long narrow blade with longitudinal parallel venation.
The culm is a rounded or slightly flattened stem with one or more solid joints known as nodes. The upper end of the sheath, known as the sheath mouth is the collar on the lower outer surface that may vlasse produced into short appendages called auricles.
In other languages Add links. Therefore, in practice the name Liliopsida will almost surely refer to the usage as in the Cronquist system.
Evolutionary trends in flowering plants. This page was last edited on 30 Augustat Retrieved 7 January Rhizomes are jointed thus distinguishable from roots with bladeless leaves scales arising from the joints. The liliopsifa of the stem between the nodes is called the internodeand is usually hollow in temperate zone grasses and solid in tropical grasses Rotar, Of the Plantae kingdom, class Liliopsidaorder Poales, and family Poaceae, there is a marvelous flora that holds great potential for new and green technologies USDA, Flowers of grasses are borne in an inflorescence or flower head which terminates the culm and other branches of the stem.
Magnoliophyta II The Class Liliopsida constitutes the monocotyledonous angiosperms and includes some of the largest plant families such as the orchids with some 20, species liliopxida the grasses with perhaps 15, species. Palmae; Araceae; Pandanaceae and Lemnaceae. Views Read Edit View history. The class Liliopsida represents monocot plants, and Magnoliopsida represents dicot plants.
Smaller units of the inflorescence are called spikelets and these are arranged on one or more branches in a wide variety of different ways to which the standard terminology for inflorescences can be applied, but using the spikelet instead of the liliopsisa flower.

If the veins are conspicuous, the leaf is striate; if the veins are raised, the leaf is ribbed. Retrieved from ” https: Liliidaesubclass Liliidae – one of four subclasses or superorders of Monocotyledones; comprises 17 families including: References in periodicals archive?
In some species, the sheath extends beyond the next node, so that consecutive leaf sheaths overlap, hiding the nodes. A stolon is a stem that creeps across the surface of the ground, and is really a basal branch of the culm that will develop roots and shoots from some or all of its nodes. Symposium, Hamburg, September 8—12, Evolution and classification of higher categories.
The longitudinal edges of the sheath may overlap, completely surrounding the culm, or the sheath may be tubular the margins connate. The grasses also have a fairly specific body plan that is immediately recognizable and very successful for colonizing seasonally dry landscapes, yet modifiable to suit a wide range of ecological conditions.
In this chapter, we shall do the same by considering representative monocot families.
Roots may also develop from a node where the node comes into contact with the ground as in decumbent and prostrate stems.
