  Flowering Plant Families, UH Botany
The Orchidaceae are terrestrial, epiphytic, or saprophytic herbs comprising one of the two largest families of flowering plants with about 1,000 genera and 15-20,000 species.
The leaves are alternate or seldom opposite or whorled and have a sheathing base and an entire, often fleshy, parallel-veined blade.

 Asparagales   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Orchidaceae can be recognised by their strongly monosymmetric flowers in which the 1-3 stamens are at least basally adnate to the style.
Indeed, although Orchidaceae are diverse, note that they are sister to the rest of Asparagales (6,850 species), and Asparagales are sister to commelinids, with some 22,750 species.
Flowers of Orchidaceae may be variably resupinate along an arching inflorescence, the end result being that all flowers of the inflorescence are held vertically resupinate, with the ovary sometimes twisted 360° (as in Angraecum, etc.) or not at all.

 Wikinfo | Orchidaceae   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Orchids (Family Orchidaceae) are among the most diverse of the flowering plant families, with over 1000 described genera and 15,000 to 20,000 (some sources give 30,000) species, and perhaps another 60,000 hybrids and varieties produced by horticulturalists.
Best known are the seemingly endless structural variations in the flowers that encourage pollination by particular species of insects, or bats, or birds.

This tribe (Maxillarieae) contains >2800 species (about 10% of Orchidaceae) and is a major component of the neotropical flora and epiphytic vegetation.
Maxillaria ranks fourth in species-richness among genera of neotropical Orchidaceae but is still poorly known.

The Orchidaceae is the largest Family in the Division Magnoliophyta (flowering plants), with about 25,000 described species, mainly perennial herbs and a few vining species, with a wide distribution in temperate and tropical regions.
The presence of the appropriate mycorrhizal fungus is essential for the natural germination of the microscopically small seeds, most of which lack food reserves (endosperm).
The Orchidaceae are widely collected and propagated through the horticultural trade and all species are protected under CITES.
