Plant Family


Family CN: Tupelo Family
Family Code: NYSSAC
Family Parent: [in CORNALES]

Summary: A family of 5 genera and 22 species, trees and shrubs, of e. Asia, se. Asia, e. North America, and Central America. The circumscription and recognition of this family has been controversial; Nyssaceae has sometimes been included in a broadly circumscribed Cornaceae, but this appears to be phylogenetically incorrect (Xiang et al. 2002).
