OrderTheales Lindley 1833

The order Theales consists of 18 families and about 3500 species of trees, shrubs, climbers and herbs, which are thought to have originated from the order Dilleniales (Appendix I). Theales have attracted a great deal of interest on account of their ability to elaborate a series of cytotoxic, antimicrobial and neuroactive phenolic substances. This order is a common ancestor for two major groups: one comprising Malvales, Lecythidales, Cappa-rales, Violales and Nepenthales, and another group which includes Ericales, Ebenales and Primulales.
