How to use "Magnoliopsid family" in context?
The magnoliopsid family is a large and diverse group of plants, which includes about 220 species of angiosperms. The family is divided into two subfamilies, the Magnoliopsidinae and the Dipsacaceae. The taxonomy and systematics of Magnoliopsidaceae are still being studied, but the group is thought to be basal to the rest of the angiosperms.
The Magnoliopsid family is typified by large, brightly coloured flowers with five petals. Many of these flowers are showy and are used in floral displays and to attract pollinators.
