Capparales is a botanical name of an order of flowering plants. It was used in the Cronquist system for an order in subclass Dilleniidae and in the Kubitzki system, nowadays. In the 1981 version of this system it included :
- order Capparales
The APG II system includes all the plants involved in the (expanded) order Brassicales. For names above the rank of family the principle of priority is not obligatory, hence the difference between the two names.
The Order Capparales is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Suborder (1): Capparineae
- Family (1): Brassicaceae
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 2,276 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Order Capparales.
Brassicaceae, a medium-sized and economically important family of flowering plants (Angiosperms), are informally known as the mustards, mustard flowers, the crucifers or the cabbage family. [more]
At least 2,214 species and subspecies belong to the Family Brassicaceae.
