A class of herbaceous plants or shrubs, including about 2,000 species, and generally distributed throughout the torrid and temperate zones. In very dry and cold climates there are only a limited number of species, where they grow in the ground as herbs or shrubs, but in warm and moist regions they are connected with rocks and trees, and their roots do not draw moisture from the soil.
