Systematics of the Eriacaceae, Empetraceae, Epacridaceae
and related taxa based on up rbcL sequence data.
Botanists at the University of Tasmania, Craig Gilmour, Dr Ronald Crowden and Dr Anthony Koutoulis, recently investigated the influence of heat-shock, darkness, direct smoke and smoke solutions in promoting germination in the Epacridaceae
The lower levels between 3,600 and 4,265 ft (1,100 m and 1,300 m) are on ultrabasic (very low in silica yet rich in iron and magnesium) substrates and are dominated by members of the Myrtaceae (Mearnsia, Metrosideros), Cunoniaceae (Cunonia), Epacridaceae
, and Podocarpaceae, with some almost pure stands of Araucaria humboldtiensis in the southern part of the island.
Prior to 1993, evolutionary relationships among the Ericaceae, Empetraceae, and Epacridaceae were addressed using a traditional "evolutionary taxonomic" approach.
Additional samples were used to represent clades previously identified in other cladistic studies (Anderberg, 1993; Judd & Kron, 1993; Kron & Chase, 1993) as well as major groups traditionally recognized within the Ericaceae, Epacridaceae, and Empetraceae.
These sequences were used to construct phylogenetic trees for purposes of determining the following: sister groups to the Ericaceae; relationships of Empetraceae and Epacridaceae to Ericaceae; tribal relationships within Ericaceae.
The Ericaceae, including Empetraceae, Epacridaceae, Monotropaceae, and Pyrolaceae, are a large, cosmopolitan family of more than 125 genera and 4500 species, which inhabit the temperate regions of the world and montane areas in tropical latitudes (Kron, 1996; Kron et al.

Of the Western Australian plant families analyzed for fire-response strategies, 50% of the Proteaceae, 50% of the Restionaceae, 45% of the Orchidaceae, and 25% of the Epacridaceae are resprouter species.
