The Brassicales are an order of flowering plants, belonging to the eurosids II group of dicotyledons under the APG II system. Brassicales sensu APG II includes families classified under Capparales in previous classifications. One character common to many members of the order is the production of glucosinolate (mustard oil) compounds. The APG II system includes the following families: Scientific classification or biological classification refers to how biologists group and categorize extinct and living species of organisms. ...

Under the Cronquist system, the Brassicales were called the Capparales, and included among the Dilleniidae. The only families included were the Brassicaceae and Capparaceae, treated as separate families, and the Tovariaceae, Resedaceae, and Moringaceae. Other taxa now included here were placed in various different orders.

The circumscriptions of several families are in flux and no consensus has yet emerged. Several genera included in Capparaceae as traditionally circumscribed have proven to be more closely related to Brassicaceae (Hall et al. 2002), and because of this the two families were merged under Brassicaceae in the APG II system. Other references (e.g., Hall et al. 2004) continue to recognize Capparaceae but in a more restricted circumscription, either by including Cleome and related genera in Brassicaceae or by recognizing them in the segregate family Cleomaceae. The relationships of several other genera remain unresolved.

Brassicales (4749 words)
The distinctive vertical files of root hairs are known from Limnanthaceae and some terminal members of Brassicales, they have not been observed in Tropaeolaceae, but other taxa have not been studied (Dolan and Costa 2001).
Limnanthaceae are rather soft-stemmed herbs with spiral, exstipulate, deeply-lobed or compound leaves and rather open flowers with a valvate calyx, contorted corolla, and gynobasic style or styles.
The ovules differ from those of other Brassicales, which are crassinucellate, bitegmic, and with a monosporic, 8-nucleate embryo sac, but chemistry and molecular data place them here.
