Genus Summary: A genus of about 350 species, trees and shrubs, of e. and se. Asia, Oceania, and tropical America. Huang et al. (2016) show our introduced species in a basal clade to the rest of Cinnamomum, morphologically and biogeographically distinctive, perhaps warranting its re-separation as genus Camphora Fabricius.
Genus References: Huang et al. (2016); Rohwer in Kubitzki, Rohwer, & Bittrich (1993); van der Werff in FNA (1997).
