The Cyperales is an order comprising monocot flowers of a single family, the Cyperaceae known as sedges. The Poaceae (grasses) have also been placed here, but are now more often placed in a separate order, correspondingly called the Poales. Sometimes the Order Cyperales is merged into the Juncales.
