 PBIO 450 Lecture Notes - Dilleniidae -- Spring 1999
As defined by Cronquist (1988), Theaceae is a large taxon of a rather diverse membership that hangs together by their imbricate or convolute petals, typically solitary, lobed or cleft style, imbricate sepals, anthers that open primarily by longitudinal slits, and by the presence of bitegmic ovules.
The subfamily Asteropeioideae, with their strongly accrescent sepals that become winglike in fruit, axillary or terminal panicles, the 5 petals that adhere to the connate sepals, and 10 or rarely 15 stamens, are now usually treated at the family rank as Asteropeiaceae.
As a result, the Theaceae proper are those members with imbricate petals and non-accrescent sepals that form a capsule or a fleshy drupaceous fruit (Theoideae) or the fruit that is baccate or dry and indehiscent (Ternstroemioideae Burnett).

Recent investigations of DNA sequence data for representatives of Theaceae (sensu stricto = Theoideae of Cronquist) identified several paraphyletic or polyphyletic genera yet significant questions remained due to taxon sampling issues and to the low level of sequence divergence of the previously sampled DNA regions (rbcL and matK plus partial flanking spacers).
The rpb2 intron data set is being used to address relationships in the Camellia relatives clade.

 PRINCE, LINDA M.* AND CLIFFORD R. PARKS.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The Theaceae as circumscribed by Cronquist is comprised of approximately 40 genera and 600 species in four subfamilies.
Current classification systems of the Theoideae based on morphological and anatomical data differ significantly in the number of genera recognized, and in the grouping of genera into tribes and subtribes.
Our data strongly support the recognition of subtribes Gordoniinae and Stewartiinae as circumscribed by Airy-Shaw, but do not adequately resolve relationships within subtribes Camelliinae and Laplaceinae at this time.

 Drift Seeds and Drift Fruits
Since their roots are emersed in water-logged silt and mud, often deficient in oxygen, the buttressed trunks and aerial roots of mangroves are typically dotted with numerous lenticels--small pores which provide gas exchange between the roots and the atmosphere.
Lenticels are especially conspicuous on the prop roots of the ubiquitous red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle) and on the deeply-fluted trunk of the tea mangrove (Pelliciera rhizophorae), an interesting swamp tree of the tea family (Theaceae) along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
The lateral roots of some mangroves produce upright, slender outgrowths called pneumatophores which extend above the mud and water like snorkel tubes.
