Santalales
Santalales is an order of flowering plants with a cosmopolitan distribution, but heavily concentrated in tropical and subtropical regions.
Most have seeds without a testa, which is unusual for flowering plants. Many of the members of the order are parasitic plants, mostly hemi-parasites, able to produce sugars through photosynthesis, but tapping the stems or roots of other plants to obtain water and minerals; some (e.g. Arceuthobium) are obligate parasites, have low concentrations of chlorophyll within their shoots (1/5 to 1/10 of that found in their hostís foliage) and derive the majority of their sustenance from the hostís vascular tissues (water, micro- and macro-nutrients, and sucrose). Mistletoe is the common name for a number of parasitic plants within the order Santalales.
The APG II system of 2003 (unchanged from the APG system of 1998) uses the following circumscription:
* order Santalales
* family Loranthaceae

* family Misodendraceae

* family Olacaceae

* family Opiliaceae

* family Santalaceae
Viscaceae is no longer recognized, it is now a synonym of Santalaceae.
