 Poales
The general pattern of movement of genes from the mitochondrion to the nucleus is interesting; it suggests that Bromeliaceae and Typhaceae (of the taxa sampled) are sister to other Poales (Adams and Palmer 2003), and of course Bromeliaceae have septal nectaries, alone in the clade.
Bromeliaceae, Sparganiaceae and Typhaceae are often basal branches with respect to other clades in Poales (e.g.
Bromeliaceae are often rosette plants, the leaves always being spirally arranged, lacking a distinct sheath, and often with spiny-toothed margins; the indumentum is lepidote; and the terminal inflorescence is prominently bracteate.

The Bromeliaceae are epiphytic herbs or sometimes terrestrial xerophytes comprising about 45 genera and 2,000 species that are further characterized by the presence of conspicuous floral bracts and scurfy, stalked, peltate scales on the leaves and other plant surfaces.
The leaves are alternate, parallel-veined, usually stiffly lorate or strap-shaped, and troughlike, with a sheathing base and commonly with spiny margins.
Reddish bracts are also associated with the flowers.
