Autumn leaf scans
This is my collection of autumn leaf scans of trees and bushes.
Cornales is an order of flowering plants, basal among the asterids, which are part of the core eudicots. There are about 600 species of cornales. Cornales are flowering plants whose flowers are in groups of four, in which the petals are not joined with each other.
The Fagales are an order of flowering plants, including some of the best known trees. The order name is derived from genus Fagus, Beeches. They belong among the rosid group of dicotyledons.
Rosales is an order of flowering plants, including nine families, the type family being the rose family Rosaceae. These nine families are those shown by the genetic analysis carried out by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group to be related to each other.
Sapindales is a botanical name for an order of flowering plants. Well-known members of Sapindales include Citrus; Maples, Horse-chestnuts, Lychees and Rambutans; Mangos and Cashews; Frankincense and Myrrh; and Mahogany.
The order Magnoliales consists of 6 families (Annonaceae, Degeneriaceae, Eupomatiaceae, Himantandraceae, Magnoliaceae and Myristicaceae). Members of Magnoliales include woody shrubs, climbers, and trees.
Malpighiales is one of the largest orders of flowering plants, containing about 16000 species, approximately 7.8% of the eudicots. The order is very diverse and hard to recognize except with molecular phylogenetic evidence.
Lamiales is an order in the asterid group of dicotyledonous flowering plants. It includes approximately 24,000 species divided into about 20 families.
The Malvales are an order of flowering plants. As circumscribed by APG II-system, the order includes about 6000 species within 9 families. The order is placed in the eurosids II, which are part of the eudicots.
Saxifragales is an order of flowering plants. Their closest relatives are a large eudicot group known as the rosids by the definition of rosids given in the APG II classification system.
Well-known members of Proteales include the Proteas of South Africa, the Banksia's and Macadamia's of Australia, the London Plane, and the Sacred Lotus.
The Ginkgoaceae is a family of gymnosperms which appeared during the Mesozoic Era, of which the only extant representative is Ginkgo biloba, which is for this reason sometimes regarded as a living fossil.
