Order Icacinales in Phylum Angiosperms

     In botanical taxonomy, the Order rank is a level of classification between Class and Family. Orders are groups of related families that share certain common characteristics.
     The classification of plants into Orders is based on a range of morphological, anatomical, and genetic characteristics, such as flower structure, fruit type, and seed morphology. Within an Order, families may share certain common traits, such as the arrangement of leaves or the shape of flowers.
     The Order rank is an important level of classification for plants because it allows for the organization of related families into broader groups. This can aid in understanding the evolutionary relationships between different groups of plants, as well as in the identification and classification of new plant species.
