Family CN: Turnera Family
Family Code: TURNER
Family Parent: [in MALPIGHIALES]
Family Authority: Kunth ex A. de Candolle 1828
Summary: A family of about 10 genera and 200 species, herbs, of tropical and subtropical America and Africa. Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (2009) treats this as included in Passifloraceae (along with Malesherbiaceae), but these 3 traditional families are each monophyletic and morphologically distinctive (Tokuoka 2012) and seem better retained at family rank.
