Botanists at the University of Tasmania, Craig Gilmour, Dr Ronald Crowden and Dr Anthony Koutoulis, recently investigated the influence of heat-shock, darkness, direct smoke and smoke solutions in promoting germination in the Epacridaceae.
Prior to 1993, evolutionary relationships among the Ericaceae, Empetraceae, and Epacridaceae were addressed using a traditional "evolutionary taxonomic" approach.
Additional samples were used to represent clades previously identified in other cladistic studies (Anderberg, 1993; Judd & Kron, 1993; Kron & Chase, 1993) as well as major groups traditionally recognized within the Ericaceae, Epacridaceae, and Empetraceae.
These sequences were used to construct phylogenetic trees for purposes of determining the following: sister groups to the Ericaceae; relationships of Empetraceae and Epacridaceae to Ericaceae; tribal relationships within Ericaceae.

Eine Analyse der Strategien als Reaktion auf Waldbrande ergab fur Pflanzenarten in Westaustralien, da[beta] 50% der Proteaceae, 50% der Restionaceae, 45% der Orchidaceae, und 25% der Epacridaceae "resproter" sind.
In the Western Australian flora, 25% of the 92 species of Epacridaceae are resprouters (Bell, 1995) (Table I), whereas the proportion of resprouters in the Orchidaceae is 45% (Dixon, 1991).
