The family Euphorbiaceae is assessed taxonomically and phylogenetically in the light of different disciplines of botany. It lacks anatomical homogenity, probable because of diverse habit and habitat. It is heterogenous palynologically, chemically and embryologically. It is, however, fairly homogenous from embryological point of view. The floral anatomical investigations indicate reduction in the number of floral whorls as well as the number of members of whorls from a supposedly 5 - merous… 
One-Seeded Fruits in the Core Caryophyllales: Their Origin and Structural Diversity
TLDR
The origin of the one-seeded fruits and the evolutionary reconstructions of some carpological characters were traced using a tree based on rbcl and matK data in order to understand the ancestral characters and their changes.
Euphorbia Section Hainanensis (Euphorbiaceae), a New Section Endemic to the Hainan Island of China From Biogeographical, Karyological, and Phenotypical Evidence
TLDR
A new section E. subgenus Chamaesyce section Hainanensis is proposed that might origin from long distance dispersal events because collective evidences showed a close affinity between the species from the Old World with those from the New World.
Euphorbiaceae en el banco de semillas del suelo de zonas serranas (Córdoba, Argentina) afectadas por incendios
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to understand the taxa, characterize the external morphology of the seeds, and facilitate their identifcation in the soil-seed bank by using a dichotomous key.
The Benefits of Myrmecochory: A Matter of Stature
TLDR
It is shown that myrmecochory strongly associates with small plant stature, even after controlling for seed size, which suggests that the primary benefit to plants concerns distance of dispersal, which reduces parental and sibling competition.
Correction: One-Seeded Fruits in the Core Caryophyllales: Their Origin and Structural Diversity
TLDR
The origin of the oneseeded fruits and the evolutionary reconstructions of some carpological characters were traced using a tree based on rbcl andmatK data in order to understand the ancestral characters and their changes.
A Distribution and Ultrastructure of Laticifers in the Phylloclade of Euphorbia caducifolia Haines, a Potential Hydrocarbon Yielding CAM Plant
TLDR
The anatomy, distribution, morphology and ultrastructure of laticifer system in the phylloclades of Euphorbia caducifolia Haines is described, which indicated xeromorphic characters and provided an insight about its capacity to grow with very little rainfall and/or inputs on dry or marginal lands.
PHYTOCHEMICAL STUDY ON THE STEM BARK OF Mallotus leucodermis Hook F.
TLDR
The stem barks of Mallotus leucodermis Hook F. (Euphorbiaceae) was studied for its chemical constituents and these compounds were elucidated based on spectroscopic analysis as well as comparison with literatures.
Evaluation of Family Status in Euphorbiaceae Collection at Purwodadi Botanic Garden ( Phyllantaceae : Segregates of Several Genera in Euphorbiaceae Sensu Lato )
TLDR
Evalution of the collection is needed to determine acurate family in Purwodadi Botanic Garden collection to know how much genera collection from Euphorbiaceae include in Phyllantaceae.
ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY AND CONCENTRATION OF SECONDARY METABOLITES IN THE PLANT PARTS OF Euphorbia cyparissias L.
This paper presents the results of a screening of nine different extracts from the plant parts (leaves, flowers and stems) of Euphorbia cyparissias for total phenolic content, concentration of
Croton golden mosaic virus: a new bipartite begomovirus isolated from Croton hirtus in Colombia
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis revealed that CroGMV segregates into a single clade and has some relationship with viruses from Central America and the Caribbean and is the first Croton-infecting bipartite begomovirus reported in the world.

The Contribution of Embyrology to the Systematics of the Euphorbiaceae
TLDR
The Euphorbiaceae are often described as a heterogeneous group with ambiguous affinities, but the embryological features are comparatively more conservative, and therefore quite useful in the delimitation of as well as in understanding of relationships.
CYTOTAXONOMIC STUDIES IN THE EUPHORBIACEAE, SUBTRIBE PHYLLANTHINAE
TLDR
Chromosome numbers are reported for 18 species of mostly West Indian Euphorbiaceae, subtribe Phyllanthinae, 13 of these for the first time (including the first published count for the genus Margaritaria), and the cytological data do not support Perry's suggestion that annual taxa are primitive in.
A survey of pollen morphology in Euphorbiaceae with special reference to Phyllanthus
TLDR
A survey of pollen morphology in Euphorbiaceae with special reference to Phyllanthus, and Webster's contribution to the classification of the subgenus PhyllAnthus is illustrated with pollen morphological results.
Synopsis of the Genera and Suprageneric Taxa of Euphorbiaceae
TLDR
This revised synopsis of the taxa of Euphorbiaceae recognizes, and provides keys to, 5 subfamilies, 49 tribes, and 317 genera, and proposes two new tribes and four new subtribes.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Didymocistus and Hymenocardia (Euphorbiaceae)
TLDR
The genus Hymenocardia lacks the microchanneled tectum, granular interstitium, and thin foot-layer of the Urticales, but has many palynological features found in the Phyllanthoideae and should be retained in the Euphorbiaceae in that subfamily.
Comparative leaf anatomical studies of some Mallotus Lour. (Euphorbiaceae) species
TLDR
A comparative study on the leaves and petioles of 16 species of Mallotus in order to investigate anatomical variations of potential in species identification supports the placing of only a few species into the respective sections.
THE MORPHOLOGY AND RELATIONSHIPS OF DALECHAMPIA SCANDENS (EUPHORBIACEAE)
TLDR
The similarity of the Dalechampia inflorescence to the cyathium of the Euphorbieae appears to be entirely superficial, and both reproductive and vegetative data suggest that Dalechampsia is related to taxa of tribe Plukenetieae.
General aspects of angiosperm evolution and macrosystematics
TLDR
It is concluded that pleiomerous flowers with helically arranged parts (corresponding to the Magnolia type, though probably less elaborate), on the basis of recent evidence can still be regarded as the probably earliest floral type in angiosperms.
Types of laticifers and crystals in Jatropha and their taxonomic implications
TLDR
Reexamination of laticifers in other genera of the Euphorbiaceae is suggested as a possible means of alleviating the long-standing taxonomic dilemma of this large and morphologically diverse genus.
Application of epidermal morphology to taxonomic delimitations in the genus Jatropha L. (Euphorbiaceae)
TLDR
SEM examination of the epidermis of mature leaves of 37 species in the ten sections of Jatropha (Euphoi-biaceae) has provided information consistent with an earlier revision of the genuS, indicating well demarcated subgenera.
