Wild Carrot Family
The genus Apiaceae (also known as Apithersia) is one of the thirty major genus in the botanical world. The genus Apiaceae contains two subspecies, for instance, A. ricini var. Pricing and A. var. apithermis.
The genus Apiaceae also includes plants with alternate, fleshy leaves with prickly capsules, stems having umbelliferous flowers, and edible fruits. Most members of the genus Apiaceae are considered less common than ferns and cacti, which are the most common genera of flowering plants. In fact, only three-fourths of the Apiaceae have flowers and the remainder are grasses. Only two-thirds of the genus Apiaceae are known to contain seeds and the remaining members are mainly vegetative. The ferns, cacti, and lily plants are very common and widespread species, while the apiaceous plants are unique and fall under the family of clematis.
Subspecies of Apiaceae
The genus Apiaceae also has two subspecies, for instance, A. castellanii and A. thysanura. The species present in the genus Dioscorea include the following: A. castellanii, A. atrada, A. crassipes, A. fonticola, A. jonesii, and A. vitticeps. These species are known to grow in tropical rain forests and dense woodlands, like those found in the Amazon basin.
In the genus Apiaceae, plants with a serous gray-green leaf surface and needle-like petals are included. Cicuta and Carrot family members Acacia and Arugala are included in the class of apiaceous plants. Cicuta, which is a vegetable, is part of the entire apiaceous order of plants.
Among the families of the apiaceae, the family of the Carp is perhaps the most common and smallest of all. Only about 400 families have been identified, of which only about twenty are known to contain specimens suitable for taxonomic studies. Among these, the largest proportion (nearly eighty percent) of families are represented by just two specimens. The carrot and the cucumber belong to the cucurbitaceae group of the apiaceae, while the potato belongs to the carrot family.
Cucumbers are representative members of the cucurbitaceae and form the second largest sub-order of the apiaceae. Carrot is the representative member of the cucurbitaceae and forms the third largest sub-order of the apiaceae. The carrot is native to Eastern Europe, Asia Minor, North Africa, Central America, and Southern Canada and the United States. It has played an important role in the diet of inhabitants of Europe, Asia and the Caribbean since early times. In the United States, it is one of the most commonly used vegetables.
The carrot family contains a number of very useful and interesting vegetables, including the familiar endosperm, endodontia, pectin, cleaver and kale. The endosperm is a small, whitish pole like structure located in the middle of a bulb. Endodont consists of two types of teeth, a large one that extends into the seed and a smaller, pointed one on the other side of the seed. The pectin is a thick, tapered, white muscle found in the middle of a plant and cleaver is a sharp blade-like structure that inserts itself into the cleaved ends of the endosperm.
Compound umbelliferae: This family includes a number of varieties of cacti, pachines and palms, which are commonly known as umbelliferae. The cacti family includes such plants as eucalyptus and kangaroo paw. The machines are cactus-like relatives of the eucalyptus family and palms are trees, the latter two belonging to the Umbelliferae group. In the context of our discussion, we will refer to the APIaceous family as “compound umbelliferae.”
Economic Importance of Apiaceae
The members of the family have distinctive external and internal differences that make them distinct from each other. Among the members of the family, the most toxic is the black flytrap. This is probably due to the presence of a few members that contain toxic chemical compounds. Two others belong to the family of the pachines and are thus probably less toxic than the flytrap.
The other three classes of APIaceous are not as common as the black flytrap. Among these are the Pachyspa species of the genus Aequorea, the Cyperus species of the genus Agapanthus and the Mimulus species of the genus Odontopodium. Most of the members of the family APIaceous are found growing on deciduous trees, with the exception of a few that grow on evergreen shrubs. Some of them produce flowers, while some form fruit. The fruits are covered in a bitter liquid and are eaten as a vegetable, while the flowers are used for floral adornments and other purposes.
The members of the family APIaceous are classified according to the way in which they grow. A number of APIaceous genera are considered to be tropical plants, with the exception of the Cyperus species which is considered to be cold-seasonal. The members of the family APIaceous may be regarded as cold-seasonal plants, with the exception of the Cappuccinum and Cattleyea species. The members of the family APIaceous are classified in four groups, the first being Cyperus, the second Cappuccinum, the third Arecan and the fourth Odontopodium.
