This family occurs worldwide, but the greatest variety is in the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones .

In ornithological practice, "dove" tends to be used for smaller species and "pigeon" for larger ones, but this is in no way consistently applied, and historically, the common names for these birds involve a great deal of variation between the terms
