Alismatales
The order contains about 165 genera in 14 families, with a cosmopolitan distribution. Most of the families are composed of herbaceous plants, commonly found in aquatic environments. The flowers are usually arranged in inflorescences, and the mature seeds lack endosperm.
The biggest departure from earlier systems (see below) is the inclusion of family Araceae. By its inclusion the order has grown enormously in number of species. The family Araceae alone accounts for about a hundred genera, totalling over two thousand species. The rest of families together contain just about five hundred species.
The Cronquist system of 1981 placed the order in subclass Alismatidae of class Liliopsida [= monocotyledons] and used this circumscription:
* order Alismatales
family Alismataceae

family Butomaceae

family Limnocharitaceae
The Cronquist subclass Alismatidae conformed fairly closely to the order Alismatales as circumscribed by APG, minus the family Araceae.
The Dahlgren system placed the order in the superorder Alismatanae in the subclass Liliidae [= monocotyledons] in the class Magnoliopsida [= angiosperms]; it used this circumscription:
* order Alismatales
family Alismataceae

family Aponogetonaceae

family Butomaceae

family Hydrocharitaceae

family Limnocharitaceae
The Dahlgren superorder Alismatanae conformed fairly closely to the order Alismatales as circumscribed by APG, minus the family Araceae.
The Wettstein system, last version in 1935, and the Engler system, update in 1964, used the name Helobiae for the order.
