There are two families in Order Juncales; Juncaceae and Thurniaceae. Most
members of the Rush Family (Juncaceae) grow in cold or temperate parts of
the world. Members of this order have small flowers often in brownish
clusters, and pollen tends to be dispersed by wind rather than by insects.
It is not easy to identify many of the grass-like plants, but there are
features that distinguish between grasses, sedges and rushes which belong to
three different families in two separate orders.
