 PBIO 450 Lecture Notes - Dilleniidae -- Spring 1999
In the case of Pyrolaceae and Monotropaceae - as well as Lemnaceae and Araceae - the point of origin in terms of the family is still extant, and in fact so too is the group of plants (a taxonomic tribe or subfamily) from which the derived families had their direct origin.
The Monotropaceae are among the world's most interesting representatives of the curious and odd.
The taxon is composed of a series of seemingly related, achlorophyllous and thus saprophytic, fleshy ericoids that have reduce, scalelike leaves, and petals essentially the color of the stem - white, pink, red, purple, yellow or brown.

 introduction to web site
The Monotropaceae (or Indian Pipe Family) consists of 10 genera and 12 species, occurring mostly in temperate and boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, but one New World species ranges south nearly approaching the Equator in Colombia, and another Old World species nears the same latitude in the Malay Peninsula.
Furthermore, the Monotropaceae and Pyrolaceae are often treated as Monotropoideae and Pyroloideae, respectively, or sometimes Monotropaceae is combined with Pyrolaceae.
The Pyrolaceae and Monotropaceae have the reduced embryo that so often accompanies parasitism or extreme mycotrophy in other groups and these relationships probably represent progressive stages in dependence on a mycorhizal fungus (Cronquist, 1981).

 Kosmicjourney's Ethnobotanical Encyclopedia Monotropa
Monotropa uniflora is a perennial that grows up to a foot tall.
This member of the Monotropaceae family is a leafless plant that bears a single five-petaled flower.
The albino flower is about three quarters of an inch long.

 AllRefer.com - Indian pipe, Plant (Plants) - Encyclopedia
Indian pipe, common name for the genus Monotropa and for the family Monotropaceae, low flowering plants of north temperate zones.
The related snow plant (Sarcodes sanguinea) of the Sierra Nevadas is a bright red species that shoots up and blooms as soon as the snow melts.
Indian pipes, snow plants, and related saprophytes are classed by most botanists as a separate family, the Monotropaceae; by others they are included in the family Ericaceae (heath family).

As many are not yet aware of these taxonomic changes we will, in deference, leave them for now with the Ericaceae, while recognizing the newer classification.
It is a small family that includes a few non-chlorophyllaceous saprophytes--the wide-ranging pinesap shown here, as well as the common Indian pipe (Monotropa uniflora).
The two may be distinguished easily, for the Indian pipe has only one flower, and the pinesap has many.

In contrast, fungi colonising plants in the Monotropaceae family, such as Monotropa hypopitys shown right, never actually penetrate the plant cell walls.
The Monotropaceae are also unusual in that all 10 genera in the family are entirely achlorophyllous.
This means they contain no chlorophyll, and hence are unable to photosynthesise and produce carbohydrates.

 Molecular Evolution Homepage
All taxa formerly included in Monotropaceae are nonphotosynthetic, whereas almost all species in the former Pyrolaceae are photosynthetic.
Recent phylogenetic reconstructions based on morphology and nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA) sequences have shown that Pyrolaceae and Monotropaceae are part of Ericaceae.
The major project in the lab is an investigation of parasitic plants of the Ericaceae (Pyrola, Monotropa, Allotropa, Pterospora, Sarcodes, Hypopitys, Hemitomes, Pityopus, Monotropsis, and Pleuricospora).

They are fleshy herbs that have taken the fungal association typical of the Ericaceae to an extreme.
connections allow some taxa of the Monotropaceae to utilize, via a fungal intermediate, the photosynthetic product of other plants.
In either case, taxa of the Monotropaceae follow a fungal life style, spending most of their time underground only emerging to reproduce via flowers showing a structure similar to that of the Ericaceae and fleshy shoots with reduced, scale-like leaves.
