Ulmaceae, family Ulmaceae, elm family(noun)
a dicot family of the order Urticales including: genera Ulmus, Celtis, Planera, Trema
Ulmaceae is a family of flowering plant that includes the elms, and the zelkovas. Members of the family are widely distributed throughout the north temperate zone, and have a scattered distribution elsewhere except for Australasia. The family was formerly sometimes treated to include the hackberries, but analysis by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group members suggests that these genera are better placed in the related family Cannabaceae. The circumscription included in the taxobox is the one suggested by P. Stevens on his Missouri Botanical Garden Angiosperm Phylogeny Website and includes information from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Vascular Plant Families and Genera list. Some classifications also include the genus Ampelocera.
U.S. National Library of Medicine
