Synonyms for asteridae or Related words with asteridae
Examples of "asteridae"
Recent phylogenetic studies have suggested that several families, including three major orders not included in
by Cronquist, Ericales, Cornales, and Apiales, also belong to the asterid group. The circumscription of subclass
, as well as the circumscriptions of the orders contained within it, is currently in a state of flux; many systematic botanists refer to these as clades (asterids, euasterids, etc.), rather than use formal names such as subclass
In volume 9 the supraordinal groups Rosidae and
is an obsolete botanical name at the rank of subclass. Composition of the subclass has also varied; however, by definition it always includes the family Asteraceae (Compositae). In the modern APG IV system of classification, asterid and euasterid are names for clades with a composition similar to that of
One of the better-known and more influential systems that formally recognized subclass
was the Cronquist system devised by botanist Arthur Cronquist, which included the orders:
To a large extent Cronquist's subclass
corresponds with the older concepts of Sympetalae and Tubiflorae, groups that were defined by having their petals united into a tube. However, these older classifications contained some sympetalous families, such as Cucurbitaceae, that are now known not to be closely related. Cronquist's concept also corresponds closely with the APG II group of euasterids but the APG does not formally recognize a group called "
" (or any other group above the rank of order).

Aucubin and catalpol are two of the most common iridoids in the plant kingdom. Iridoids are prevalent in the plant subclass
, such as Ericaceae, Loganiaceae, Gentianaceae, Rubiaceae, Verbenaceae, Lamiaceae, Oleaceae, Plantaginaceae, Scrophulariaceae, Valerianaceae, and Menyanthaceae.
Campanulales is a valid botanic name for a plant order. It was used in the Cronquist system as an order within the subclass
in the class Magnoliopsida flowering plants. As then circumscribed it included the families:
Most of the taxa belonging to this clade had been referred to the
in the Cronquist system (1981) and to the Sympetalae in earlier systems. The name asterids (not necessarily capitalised) resembles the earlier botanical name but is intended to be the name of a clade rather than a formal ranked name, in the sense of the "ICBN".
According to Engler and Prantl, Sympetalae includes the following orders: Diapensiales, Ericales, Primulales, Plumbaginales, Ebenales, Contortae, Tubiflorae, Plantaginales, Rubiales, Cucurbitales, and Campanulatae. This group corresponds closely to the "
" in the Cronquist system and to the asterids in the APG II-system.
