In the Cronquist system the Salicaceae was treated in its own order Salicales, and contained only three genera (Salix, Populus and Chosenia), but APG includes it in the Malpighiales. The additional genera were previously treated in the Flacourtiaceae, but had a mixed history before that and have been treated in Bembiciaceae, Caseariaceae, Homaliaceae, Poliothyrsidaceae, Prockiaceae, Samydaceae, and Scyphostegiaceae.
