Asparagales is the name o an order o plants, uised in modren classification seestems such as the APG III seestem (which is uised throughoot this airticle).[5] The order taks its name frae the faimily Asparagaceae an is placed in the monocots. The order haes anly recently been recognized in classification seestems. It wis first put forrit bi Huber in 1977[6] and later taken up in the Dahlgren seestem o 1985.[7] Afore this, mony o its faimilies wur assigned tae the auld order Liliales: a very muckle order containin almaist aw monocots wi colourful tepals a wioot starch in thair endosperm. DNA sequence analysis indicatit that Liliales should be dividit intae at least Liliales, Asparagales an Dioscoreales. The boondaries o the Asparagales an o its faimilies hae unnergone a series o chynges in recent years; future research mey lead tae further chynges an ultimately greater stability.
