Classification

APG system

In the APG III system, of 2009, this order is placed in the clade magnoliids and is circumscribed as follows:[1]

order Piperales
family Aristolochiaceae
family Hydnoraceae
family Lactoridaceae
family Piperaceae
family Saururaceae
Magnoliids


Canellales


Piperales


Aristolochiaceae


Hydnoraceae


Lactoridaceae




Piperaceae


Saururaceae







Laurales


Magnoliales



The current composition and phylogeny of the Piperales.[2][3]

This is an expansion from the APG system, of 1998, which used the same placement (in the magnoliids) but used this circumscription:

  • order Piperales
    family Aristolochiaceae
    family Lactoridaceae
    family Piperaceae
    family Saururaceae

Lactoridaceae is now no longer maintained; its sole genus Lactoris is placed in Aristolochiaceae.

Earlier systems

The Cronquist system, of 1981, placed the order in the subclass Magnoliidae of class Magnoliopsida [=dicotyledons] and used this circumscription:

  • order Piperales
    family Chloranthaceae
    family Piperaceae
    family Saururaceae

The Engler system, in its update of 1964, placed the order in subclassis Archichlamydeae in class Dicotyledoneae [=dicotyledons] and used this circumscription:

  • order Piperales
    family Chloranthaceae
    family Lactoridaceae
    family Piperaceae
    family Saururaceae

The Wettstein system, latest version published in 1935, assigned the order to the Monochlamydeae in subclass Choripetalae of class Dicotyledones. It used the circumscription:

  • order Piperales
    family Piperaceae
