Comments: Molecular data places Tropaeolaceae adjacent to the two genera of Akaniaceae (Gadek et al., 1992; Rodman et al., 1998; Hall et al., 2004; Soltis et al., 2011).

1, column ITE at right) suggests five instances in which tracheids have been evolved from fiber-tracheids (Tropaeolaceae, Koeberliniaceae, Emblingiaceae, Pentadiplandaceae, and Stixaceae).
The early-departing branches of the Brassicales clade lack tracheids (in Tropaeolaceae, the tracheids are vasicentric tracheids, probably derived by vessel dimorphism).
Huynh (1968) senalo que las caracteristicas palinologicas del "tipo A1 con membrana granulosa" serian el tipo polinico "inicial" dentro de la familia Tropaeolaceae (por poseer caracteres mas primitivos con respecto a los otros tipos) y que estos predominan en el sur del continente austroamericano.

The differences in relative growth rates of lobes and sinus during leaf development and cell size in the mature leaves are possibly responsible for the variation in leaf morphology within Tropaeolum (Tropaeolaceae), from acutely lobed, to roundly lobed, to orbicular (Whaley & Whaley, 1942).
