Order Rosales includes a wide variety of plants which probably evolved from
magnolia-like ancestors. This order forms a sort of junction in the
evolutionary tree as many other groups seem to have evolved from early
members of Rosales. There are 24 families which have in all about 6,700
species. Nearly half of these are in the Rose Family (Rosaceae). Plants in
Order Rosales can be found world-wide in many different habitats from the
Arctic to the tropics.
