  1. Rosaceae

    Rosaceae are a medium-sized family of flowering plants, including about 2830 species in 95 genera. The name is derived from the type genus Rosa. Among the largest genera are Alchemilla, Sorbus, Crataegus, Cotoneaster, and Rubus. The largest genus by far is Prunus with about 430 species. However, all of these numbers should be seen as underestimates - much taxonomic work is left to be done here. Roses can be herbs, shrubs or trees. Most species are deciduous, but some are evergreen. They have a worldwide range, but are most diverse in the northern hemisphere. Several economically important products come from Rosaceae, including many edible fruits, almonds, and ornamental trees and shrubs.
