Depending on the characters of corolla and androecium, this family is divided into 3 subfamilies; Papilionoideae (Papilionaceae) Caesalpinioideae ( Caesalpiniaceae) Mimosoideae (Mimosaceae) Family: Papilionaceae (Pea family) Class: Dicotyledonae. (2005: 1) mention also more recent authors. Leguminosae (Lewis & al., 2005; Yahara & al., 2013), or Fabaceae (see Lewis & Schrire, 2003), has been the focus of numerous recent phylogenetic analyses at the subfamily, tribe and generic-group levels (see LPWG, 2013a and refer-ences therein). Family Leguminosae (Fabaceae) is generally characterized by typical legume fruit and the ability to symbiotically fix nitrogen.Among the three subfamilies, Papilionoideae is the largest and possesses the lionâs share of economically important legumes including pulses and forages. Marielle Babineau. Order: Rosales. (Previously known as the Legume Family: Leguminosae) If you have seen a pea or bean blossom in the garden, then you will be able to recognize members of the Pea family. Subfamily Mimosoideae includes 4 tribes, 80 genera and 3,200 species. In particular Cronquist (1981) in his book of the families of flowering plants distingishes 3 distinct families (Caesalpiniaceae, Fabaceae, and Mimosaceae), but Lewis et al. Sub-class: Polypetalae. D. Talukdar, in Brenner's Encyclopedia of Genetics (Second Edition), 2013. Neotropical Leguminosae (Mimosoideae). Representantes de les 3 subfamilies tradicionalmente reconocíes de les lleguminoses âcesalpinióideas, papilionóideas y mimosóideasâ según tamién de grandes clados dientro d'eses subfamilies âcomo'l de les genistóidesâ topáronse nel rexistru fósil en periodos un pocu más tardíos, empezando ente 55 a 50 millones d'años tras. Fabales - Fabales - Classification of Fabaceae: Fabaceae has traditionally been divided into three subfamilies: Caesalpinioideae, Mimosoideae, and Faboideae (or Papilionoideae), each of which have been considered a separate plant family in the past. Key to the subfamilies : 1: Flowers zygomorphic; petals imbricate, often unequal; stamens 10 or fewer, not forming the conspicuous part of the inflorescence; leaves various, mostly simple or pinnately compound, only occasionally bipinnately compound or reduced to phyllodes. Lewis et al. Abstract. A new subfamily classification of the Leguminosae based on a taxonomically comprehensive phylogeny: The Legume Phylogeny Working Group (LPWG) Nasim Azani. The Fabaceae or Leguminosae commonly kent as the legume, pea, or bean faimily, are a muckle an economically important faimily o flouerin plants. The vascular bundles of legume funicles were clarified as collateral, amphicribral, or amphivasal. These are irregular flowers, with 5 petals forming a distinctive "banner, wings, and keel", as shown in the illustration. Mostly tropical and warm temperate Asia and America. The Mimosoideae comprise a subfamily of the flowering plant family Fabaceae (Leguminosae) characterized by flowers with small petals and numerous prominent stamens. Klitgård, B.B. Family: Leguminosae. (2010). Department of Plant Science, University of Tehran, Iran. 2), there has not been an international consensus about the rank of the 3 subfamilies in the Leguminosae. These, as well as phylogenies of the family as To clarify the diversity in funicular internal structures in Leguminosae, 59 legume species (classified into 46 genera, 20 tribes, and 3 subfamilies) were examined by a paraffin-sectioning method.
