As was mentioned previously, the Cannaceae shared the presence of biominerals (opal and calcium oxalate) with other six families, such as Costaceae, Heliconiaceae, Lowiaceae, Marantaceae, Strelitiziaceae, Musaceae and Zingiberaceae (Solereder & Meyer 1930, Tomlinson 1961, 1962, 1969, Ciciarelli 1986).
The study of the biomineralization process in wild plants is still not very advanced, since most works relay on the study of crops, no natural vegetation and no studies like the one performed here are made on the Cannaceae and related families.

The Zingiberales are a classic example of the semophyletic sequence in stamen reduction from an original dicyclic androecium running in a continuous sequence (the reductive process is represented with symbols used for floral formulas; A refers to the androecium, the numbers refer to the number of stamens in a whorl, and the raised circle refers to staminodes): Musaceae [A3+3 or A3+2(1[degrees]) / Heliconiaceae [A2(1[degrees])+3] - Lowiaceae / Strelitziaceae (A3+2) - Zingiberaceae [A2[degrees]+ 1(2[degrees])] / Marantacene [A1[degrees]/2[degrees]/0+1(2[degrees])] - Costaceae [A3[degrees]+1(2[degrees])] - Cannaceae [A2[degrees]+(2[degrees])] (see, e.
