Contents

The key and descriptions were generated from a DELTA database (Dallwitz 1980; Dallwitz, Paine, and Zurcher 1993).

Introduction • Revision history

Interactive key, including interactive information retrieval • Hints on using the interactive key

The interactive key allows free choice of characters, is easy to use, and can lead to correct identifications in spite of occasional errors. It can display all the illustrations, full and partial descriptions, diagnostic descriptions, differences and similarities between genera, lists of genera exhibiting or lacking specified attributes, distributions of character states within any set of genera, geographical distribution, and tribal classification).

Character list • Implicit attributes

List of taxa studied anatomically • Classification

Descriptions

We advise against extracting comparative information from the descriptions. This is much more easily achieved using the DELTA data files or the interactive key. See also Guidelines for using data taken from Web publications.

The bold parts in the descriptions are diagnostic descriptions, generated with the aid of Intkey (Dallwitz, Paine, and Zurcher 1995). They distinguish all taxa in at least two respects from the other taxa.
