The Aceraceae (Maple family) comprises between 120-150 species of trees and shrubs. A common character is that the leaves are opposite. The most important genus is Acer, containing all but two of the species. The remaining two are in Dipteronia. Scientific classification or biological classification is how biologists group and categorize extinct and living species of organisms (as opposed to folk taxonomy). ...

As they are closely related to the Sapindaceae, several taxonomists (including the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group) group the Aceraceae and the Hippocastanaceae in that family. Current evidence shows that both Aceraceae and Hippocastanaceae are monophyletic, so they could be kept separate from Sapindaceae; it is a matter of taxonomic style. genera See text Sapindaceae, also known as the soapberry family, is a family of plants in the order Sapindales. ... Taxonomy (from Greek verb tassein = to classify and nomos = law, science, cf economy) may refer to: the science of classifying living things (see alpha taxonomy) a classification Initially, taxonomy was only the science of classifying living organisms, but later the word was applied in a wider sense, and may also...
