Capparaceae

 

a family of dicotyledonous plants. It includes herbs, shrubs, lianas, and sometimes trees, with simple or pal-mately compound alternate leaves that often have small stipules. The flowers are bisexual, rarely unisexual and regular, and most often more or less irregular. There are usually four each of sepals, petals, and stamens. The ovary is sessile, or, more often, on a long gynophore. The fruit may be a capsule, or pod-like, or berry-like.

There are approximately 45 genera (more than 800 species) in the family, growing in tropical, subtropical, and less frequently in temperate countries, often in regions with an arid climate, particularly in Africa. Two genera are found in the USSR— Capparis and Cleome, with 13 species. The Cleome genus and related genera are sometimes separated into a special family, Cleomaceae.

The Old World tropical deserts are colonized by a Paleotropical flora, characterized by 1) certain families (Acanthaceae, Aizoaceae, Apocynaceae, Asclepi-adaceae, Bignoniaceae, Bombacaceae, Capparidaceae, Celastraceae, Leguminosae-Caesalpinoidae, Poaceae tribe Chlorideae, Combretaceae, Commelinaceae, Loganiaceae, Malpighiaceae, Moraceae, Moringaceae, Nyctaginaceae, Olacaceae, Oleaceae, Pedaliaceae, Rubiaceae, Salvadoraceae, Sapindaceae, Simaroubaceae, Sterculiaceae, Zygophyllaceae), 2) distinct subfamilies (for example, the grasses of the Andropogonoideae and Panicoideae subfamilies) of families with wider or even cosmopolitan distribution (in the cases cited, the Poaceae), and 3) genera and species more or less confined to the intertropical areas of the Old World.
In Papilionidae, Aristolochiaceae (Paleoherb 1) and Rutaceae (Rosid 2) are clearly dominating themes, while Pieridae are typically associated with plants in Brassicaceae and related families, such as Capparidaceae (Rosid 2).
