Cronquist (1981) considered Ericaceae, Empetraceae, and Epacridaceae to be closely related, and he placed them in the Ericales (also including Clethraceae and Cyrillaceae).
Cyrillaceae and Clethraceae were included in Cronquist's (1981) order Ericales; in addition, Takhtajan (1997) placed Actinidiaceae in Ericales, and subsequent morphological and molecular phylogenetic studies have included representatives of Actinidiaceae, Glethraceae, and Cyrillaceae.
The high number of species of Ericaceae compared with that of their sister taxa, Cyrillaceae and Clethraceae, is a reflection of their extensive adaptive radiation, especially in montane habitats.
