Part of the The Families and Genera of Vascular Plants book series (FAMILIES GENERA, volume 10)


Trees, shrubs, rarely subshrubs, lianas, frequently with contact dermatitis-causing exudate; vertical resin canals present in bark and in phloem of petioles and large veins of leaves, also widely present in fruits, flowers, and other tissues. Leaves alternate, rarely opposite or whorled, simple or pinnately compound, very rarely palmate or bipinnately compound, sessile or petiolate; leaflets opposite, subopposite, or alternate, entire, serrate, dentate, or crenate; stipules absent. Inflorescences terminal and/or axillary, thyrsoid, paniculate, racemose, or spicate, rarely cauliflorous, rarely flowers solitary; bracts and prophylls caducous or persistent.
