  Dioscoreales
The Dioscoreales are primarily a tropical group, with a few species in Europe and temperate America.
The Dioscoreales are among those basal monocot groups which do not fit the textbook description of a monocot.
For this reason, the Dioscoreales have at times been considered the most "primitive" of monocots, but although they may retain many characters found in early monocots, they now appear to be more closely related to the Liliales.

 Liliales
However, since the group has been redefined to exclude the Asparagales, Dioscoreales, and Iridales, a position which is supported by both molecular and morphological evidence, the Liliales is now a rather small group, with about 1200 species.
The Asparagales and Dioscoreales have been lumped into the Liliaceae since approximately the beginning of this century.
In any case, it is quite likely that the group existed in some form by the Late Cretaceous, as it is believed to be one of the most "primitive" groups of monocots, that s, its appearance and ancestry indicate an early separation from other monocots.

Dioscoreales and Pandanales are sister taxa in some studies (e.g.
Stem-group Dioscoreales are dated to ca 124 mybp, crown group Dioscoreales to ca 123 mybp (Janssen and Bremer 2004).
Nartheciaceae are rather consistently placed with Dioscoreales, albeit often with only moderate support (e.g.

 PBIO 450 Lecture Notes - Liliidae -- Spring 1998
The recognition of the Taccales as distinct from the Dioscoreales, as proposed by Takhtajan (1997), does not seem to be justified.
The small, solitary or paired flowers of the erect herbs of Trichopodaceae readily separate this familly from the climbing herbs of the Avertraceae that have 1-10 large flowers.
All of these families are best assigned to the Dioscoreales or Taccales.

One of the main objectives of the Rubiaceae of Madagascar Project is to further Kew's GIS and conservation work in Madagascar by providing biogeographical data on the evergreen humid forests of the east, where Rubiaceae are particularly abundant.
Paul is undertaking systematic research on the yams (Dioscorea spp.) of the palaeotropics, while Liz, a Kew-funded PhD student, is investigating the systematics of Dioscoreales, of which there are several endemic species and one endemic genus in Madagascar.
The monotypic genus Avetra is of particular interest in understanding the systematics of the family, as characters such as bisexual flowers and rhizomes suggest that it could be primitive.

I discovered true yams in China, apparently grown in warm, humid South China, but they’re also a major crop in West Africa and elsewhere in the tropics.
The word “yam”; refers, not to a single species, but to a genus Dioscorea, of the family Dioscoreaceae, once put in the order Liliales, but now regarded as constituting its own order, Dioscoreales.
The most common yam in China is Dioscorea oppositifolia, which grows up to four feet long.

 Liliopsida
Some Liliidae are arborescent, some possess net-veined leaves, and some have vessel elements throughout the shoot as well as in the root.
Recent molecular phylogenetic studies indicate that the Liliidae has at least 3 distinct lineages: Liliales, including Liliaceae sensu stricto, Smilacaceae, and a number of segregate families of Liliaceae sensu lato; Asparagales, including many of the epigynous Liliaceae segregate families, Iridaceae, and Orchidaceae; and Dioscoreales, including Dioscoreaceae and Burmanniaceae.
The Liliidae are likely sister to the morphologically most derived subclass Commelinidae (including Zingiberidae).
