Euphorbiaceae A.L. de Jussieu. Spurge Family.

Key to Euphorbiaceae

A family of about 220 genera and 6500 species, trees, shrubs, vines, and herbs, nearly cosmopolitan in distribution. Molecular systematics suggests that various units traditionally included in the Euphorbiaceae should be segregated (Soltis et al. 2000; Chase et al. 2002); see Phyllanthaceae and Putranjivaceae.
