  1. Taxales, order Taxalesnoun

    coextensive with the family Taxaceae: yews


  1. taxales

    Taxales is an order of conifers (cone-bearing seed plants), which includes the family Taxaceae. This family contains the species of yews, flowering plants that are characterized by needle-like leaves and red arils. The order and its family differ from other conifers due to their unique method of seed development.


  1. Taxales

    The plant order Taxales was until recently treated as a distinct order in the division Pinophyta, class Pinopsida, and included only those species in the family Taxaceae, known commonly as yews. Under this interpretation, all other conifers were classified separately in the order Pinales. Recent genetic and micromorphological studies, however, have shown the Taxaceae are closely related to the other conifers, particularly so to the family Cephalotaxaceae. The order Taxales is therefore no longer recognised as distinct, and the family Taxaceae is now included in the order Pinales.
