 Ericaceae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The plant Family Ericaceae (Heath Family) or ericaceous plants are mostly lime-hating or calcifuge plants that thrive in acid soils.
The Family Ericaceae includes numerous plants from mostly temperate climates: cranberry, blueberry, heath, heather, huckleberry, azalea and rhododendron are well-known examples.
Recent genetic research by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group has resulted in the inclusion of the formerly recognised families Empetraceae, Epacridaceae, Monotropaceae, Prionotaceae and Pyrolaceae into Ericaceae.

 Ericales
Diapensiaceae have often been considered close to Ericaceae, but the anthers of some genera of the former which appear to be inverted, are not.
Ericaceae are usually woody and shrubby and may be recognized by their flowers, which are often urceolate or tubular and are sympetalous; the ten stamens often dehisce by pores and sometimes have appendages on the anthers or the tops of the filaments.
Vegetatively the family is very variable, but the leaves are always exstipulate and often spiral and rather mesomorphic, or they are xeromorphic, in that case being either opposite, ericoid, narrow and with a channel on the abaxial surface, or variable in size, thick, and with close parallel venation.

The main objectives are the publication of a new account of Rhododendron section Vireya, local floristic accounts of Ericaceae and the publication of new species.
Experience of these plants in the field over nearly 30 years makes RBGE ideally placed to pursue studies on the taxonomy of this group, notably to produce an account of the Musaceae for Flora Malesiana and Flora Thailand.

 ARS | Publication request: Utility of Blueberry-Derived Est-Pcr Primers in Related Ericaceae Species
Interpretive Summary: DNA markers are useful in genetic studies of plants for distinguishing (fingerprinting) cultivars, determining genetic relatedness, and for mapping purposes.
Here, we have tested whether these blueberry-derived markers are useful in other species of the Ericaceae family, closely related cranberry species and more distantly related rhododendron species.
Thus, these markers should be useful for DNA fingerprinting, comparative mapping, and assessing genetic diversity within species of the genus Vaccinium and between some genera of the family Ericaceae.
