The systematic treatment includes generic and specific keys, detailed descriptions of all taxa along with illustrations, distribution maps, lists of specimens examined, and notes on ecology and local names/uses. Also included are in-depth discussions of the family's morphology, anatomy, phylogeny, phytogeography, reproductive biology, and conservation.
