Type Species

The rose subfamily Rosoideae includes many shrubs and perennial herbs. Only a few are annual herbs.

The circumscription of the Rosoideae is still not wholly certain; recent genetic research (e.g. Eriksson et al., 2003) has resulted in several changes at the genus level and the removal from Rosoideae of some genera (notably Cercocarpus, Cowania, Dryas, Purshia) previously included in the subfamily. Further research is ongoing.
