Almost 80% of the approved drugs and 67% of the clinical-trial drugs concentrated in 17 and 30 drug-prolific families, respectively, including Fabid and Malvid groups of the Rosidae subclass, the Lamiid and Campanulid groups of the Asterid subclass, and the Ranunculales order [24].
Over 21 complete genomes of species within the Ranunculales have been sequenced and deposited in the NCBI database (as of August 2016), and these data can be used to study chloroplast genome evolution in the Ranunculales.
the excellent preserved flowers of Teixeiraea lusitanica (Ranunculales affinities) with abundant doughnut-shaped orbicules (von Balthazar et al, 2005).
Within Eudicotyledons, Ranunculus peruvianus was separated from the rest of eudicots since Ranunculales is a basal order of eudicots and is hypothesized that it is monophyletic, according to the analysis of multiple DNA sequences such as rbcL, atpB and 18S rDNA [32, 33, 34].
For example, non-molecular-based studies have suggested that the monocots are most closely related to the Ranales (Ranunculales, Nymphaeales, Magnoliales, Ceratophyllum et al.) (Hutchinson, 1959), the Nymphaeales (Cronquist, 1981; Takhtajan, 1969, 1980), the Ariflorae (Thorne, 1976), the Dioscoreales (Huber, 1969), early shrubby dicotyledons (Stebbins, 1974), the Dioscoreales and the Magnoliifloreae (Dahlgren and Clifford, 1982), the Melanthiales (Thorne, 1992) and the paleoherbs (Aristolochiales, Nymphaeales, Piperales) (Behnke, 1969, 1971; Loconte and Stevenson, 1991).

As in basal angiosperms, there are several cases of monosymmetry by simplicity with only one carpel, such as in Berberidaceae and some Ranunculaceae (Ranunculales), Proteaceae (Proteales), and Didymelaceae (von Balthazar et al., 2003); and there are also a few cases with one stamen as, e.g., Cissampelos (Menispermaceae) (Puri, 1978; Kessler, 1993) (Ranunculales), Placospermum (Proteaceae) (Douglas & Tucker, 1996), and Didymeles (Didymelaceae).

Basal angiosperms with relatively elaborate monosymmetry are Aristolochia (Piperales, magnoliids) and some Papaveraceae and Ranunculaceae (Ranunculales; basal eudicots) (Damerval et al., 2007).
