The Info List - Samydaceae

--- Advertisement ---

SAMYDACEAE is a family of tropical and subtropical woody plants, its best known genus being Casearia
. It has always been of uncertain placement, in the past usually being submerged in the family Flacourtiaceae

A 2002 paper included the Samydaceae in the family Salicaceae
. However, this placement has by no means been universally accepted.
