The rose subfamily Rosoideae
Rosoideae
consists of more than 850 species, including many shrubs, perennial herbs, and fruit plants such as strawberries and brambles. Only a few are annual herbs. The circumscription of the Rosoideae
Rosoideae
is still not wholly certain; recent genetic research[1] has resulted in several changes at the genus level and the removal from Rosoideae
Rosoideae
of some genera (notably Cercocarpus, Cowania, Dryas and Purshia) previously included in the subfamily. Genera[edit]
