  Liliaceae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Liliaceae, or the Lily Family, is an important family of monocotyledons that includes a great number of ornamental flowers as well as several important agricultural crops; the onion has traditionally been classified here, though modern research has moved it to family Alliaceae.
The Lily family formerly was a paraphyletic "catch-all" group that included a great number of genera that are now included in other families, and some in other orders, such as Agavaceae, Alliaceae, Anthericaceae s.s., Asphodelaceae, Convallariaceae, Hyacinthaceae, Melanthiaceae, Nartheciaceae, Smilacaceae, Tecophilaeaceae, Themidaceae, Tofieldiaceae, Trilliaceae and Uvulariaceae.
The family Smilacaceae was formerly included in the Liliaceae but now is segregated on several bases.

 pollen grain morphology Liliaceae
In fact, the systematics for the plant family Liliaceae are complex, and many families have been split out of it.
Given the heterogeneity of the Liliaceae, recoginition of monolete - reticulate grains to the genus level (or families split from Liliaceae) is possible, but these grains are so rare as fossils, and the ecology of the group is so diverse, that the continued use of this pollen type is likely.
Liliaceae pollen grains are generally 20 - 40 µm in long axis and monocolpate.

The fruit types are septicidal or loculicidal capsules, or berries.
Some of the plants that make up the Liliaceae family are evergreen succulents such as Aloe and Haworthia, or vines such as Smilax.
There are many beneficial members in the Liliaceae family such as:

No fewer than 30 segregate families have been recognized, though there is not universal acceptance of all of them, and in some cases their ordinal associations are not yet settled.
For the genera of Cronquist’s Liliaceae that are present in the flora, Table 1 summarizes their dispositions among the maximum number of segregate families in recent use.
As defined by A. Cronquist (1981), the Liliaceae contained “about 280 genera and nearly 4000 species.” In a much more restricted, recent sense, the family was considered to include just 11 genera and perhaps 545 species (R. Thorne 2000).

The Liliaceae is a very large and varied family, probably artificially grouped, with many alternative proposals about how it should be subdivided to present more natural groups.
The Liliaceae are among the monocots and bear leaves with parallel veins and flowers with parts (usually) in 3's.
Many members of the Liliaceae are edible (onions, garlic, leeks, asparagus), but others are highly poisonous (death-camas).

Melanthiaceae, Liliaceae and Colchicaceae have tepals with three traces, Smilacaceae have tepals with but a single trace each.
Liliaceae are more or less bulbous geophytes that may be recognised by their rather large flowers with six, free and often spotted tepals, six extrorse stamens, and a superior ovary.
Patterson and Givnish (2002) emphasise the similarities among the large-flowered heliophilous Liliaceae, with their bulbs, capsules, and linear leaves with parallel venation, and the broad-leaved, reticulate-veined, smaller-flowered, rhizomatous, baccate, woodland Liliaceae respectively, and suggest that the latter morphology is plesiomorphous in the family ("concerted convergence" and "concerted plesiomorphy": see also Givnish 2003; Rønsted et al.

The Liliaceae are monocotyledons, that is, they have only one seed leaf.
Flowers ~ The flowers are often borne in racemes, although they may also be solitary as in the Tulip.
Note: Several groups of plants in the Family Liliaceae have now been given their own Family status.

As treated very broadly, the Liliaceae are mostly perennial herbs from starchy rhizomes, corms, or bulbs comprising about 280 genera and 4,000 species.
The leaves are alternate or less often opposite or whorled.
The flowers of this species have a superior ovary but are produced in umbels.

 CHAPTER 44. LILIACEAE
In this handbook the Liliaceae is deemed to include the Alliaceae.
From the point of view of seed germination and dormancy, however, it is convenient to adopt the widest classification of the Liliaceae.
The fruits of Liliaceae are small capsules or berries and, mostly, many-seeded.

We know that these effects are due to the initiation of a breathtaking series of chemical reactions within the bulbs, triggered by cutting or crushing, whereby a cascade of exotic, complex substances are formed instantaneously to create the therapeutic efficacy of the remedies.
Both remedies belong to the Liliaceae (lily) family of plants of the genus Allium, which includes more than six hundred species, including shallots, chives and leeks.
The complex chemistry of the two plants has been shown to be remarkably similar and their therapeutic action may be even closer than previously thought, although several materia medicas still list the two remedies as incompatible.

 Liliaceae (Lily Family) Part 2
Liliaceae is a large family, with hundreds of exotic species in cultivation.
Many native members of Liliaceae can be grown in the garden, keeping in mind their native situations: Allium, Brodiaea, Camassia, Lilium and Calochortus species prefer to grow in open, sunny areas; Trillium, Erythronium, Smilacine, and Maianthemum prefer shaded habitats, and require more moisture over a longer growing period.
