  Araceae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The arums comprise the Family Araceae (including the numerous aroids subfamily): monocotyledonous flowering plants in which flowers are borne on a type of inflorescence called a spadix.
Recent genetic research by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group has shown that the duckweeds, previously treated in a separate family Lemnaceae, also belong in the Araceae.
The largest collection of living Araceae is maintained at Missouri Botanical Gardens.

Earliest Specialists with Araceae Schott Although a number of botanists, in addition to Linnaeus, worked with Araceae prior to the early 19th Century, Heinrich Wilhelm Schott was the earliest to specialize almost exclusively with Araceae.
From the standpoint of the taxonomy of Araceae, it is tragic that all of his herbarium material was lost by war action; thus, in many cases it is now not possible to determine what he dealt with.
In a thorough survey of the chloroplast DNA of Araceae (French et al., 1995), French and his colleagues contributed greatly to the most recent revision of the suprageneric classification of the Araceae (Mayo et al., 1997).

 Araceae in Flora of North America @ efloras.org
Acorus, a genus historically included in Araceae, is treated as a separate family in theat flora based on extensive morphologic and chemical evidence that supports its removal from Arales (M. Grayum 1987).
Araceae contain crystals of calcium oxalate, which are often cited as causing the intense irritation experienced when handling or consuming the raw plant tissue of many genera in the family.
Despite the toxic effects of Araceae, species of several genera are cultivated as food plants, mainly as subsistence crops in tropical areas.

 History and Current Status of Systematic Research with Araceae
His first publications on Araceae were a review of the classification of the Araceae (Nicolson, 1960a) and a paper describing the occurrence of trichosclereids in the Monsteroideae (Nicolson, 1960b).
Tom Croat, of the Missouri Botanical Garden, became interested in the Araceae in 1967 when, in conjunction with his work on the Flora of Barro Colorado Island (Croat, 1978a), he found the family to be the most difficult in the flora.
Perhaps her major accomplishment is the treatment of the Araceae of China written with C. Wu (Li, 1979a, 1979b) that deals with 34 genera and 191 native species.

The Araceae are usually rhizomatous or tuberous (sometimes giant) terrestrial (to rarely minute aquatic) herbs comprising about 108 genera and 2,830 species, usually with calcium oxalate crystals or raphides and commonly with milky sap.
In Araceae that have imperfect flowers, the plants are generally monoecious.
These minute, aquatic derivatives of Araceae are sometimes treated as the family Lemnaceae.

Araceae are herbs with leaves that are usually divided into a petiole and expanded blade.
Stem-group Araceae are dated to ca 131 mybp, crown group Araceae to ca 128 mybp (Janssen and Bremer 2004).
Thermogenesis has been detected in the flowers of a number of Araceae, and this is produced both by uncoupling proteins and the mediation of an alternative oxidase (Watling et al.

The Araceae, or aroids, is a family of herbaceous monocotyledons with 104 genera and about 3700 species if the Lemnaceae (duckweeds) is not regarded as a generic synonym, or 108 genera and about 3750 species if the Lemnaceae are included.
Leaves range from simple and entire to compound and higly divided, and may be basal or produced from an aerial stem.
