The fourth review paper by Salazar-Lorenzo & Nixon provides a review and new data on the Canellaceae with an emphasis on the impact that combination of molecular and morphological data is having in the taxonomy of the Caribbean species, including the future description of a new endemic genus.
The Canellaceae are a small tropical plant family of aromatic trees, rarely treelets and shrubs, with a disjunct occurrence between tropical and subtropical America (the Caribbean Region, Costa Rica and South America) and Africa (Madagascar and Eastern Africa).
Canellaceae species from the West Indies, specially the widespread Canella winterana Gaertn.
Some species of Canellaceae are also used to catch octopus, Cinnamodendron ekmanii (Salazar, 2006), and fish, Canella winterana (Liogier, 2000).
The family Canellaceae was published in 1832 by Martius with Canella as described by Browne in 1756 as the sole genus.
Until relatively recently, the Canellaceae have been assigned either to the Parietales (Warburg, 1895; Gilg, 1925; Lawrence, 1951), Annonales (Dahlgren, 1983), or to the Magnoliales (Bonnet, 1876; Takhtajan, 1981; Cronquist, 1988).
Members of the Canellaceae form a monophyletic group, which share several synapomorphies such as monadelphous stamens, parietal placentation, and campylotropous ovules (Salazar, 2006).
The Canellaceae are anomalous within the Magnoliales in that they have unilateral paratracheal parenchyma, they lack apotracheal parenchyma, their vessel-ray parenchyma pits are half-bordered and similar to intervessel pits, and they commonly have crystals in procumbent and upright ray cells, a feature not seen in any other family of the Magnoliales.
