Naming and discovery

Typhaceae is a family of flowering plants.

ClassificationEdit

During 2003, the APG II system recognized this genus in the order Poales in the commelinids clade in the monocots. At that time, Typhaceae had only one genus, Typha, which totalled to a dozen species of perennial plant found in wet habitats. Sparganium was recently added to this family.

In the Cronquist system of 1981, the family was placed into the order, Typhales.

In the Wettstein system of 1935, the family was in the Pandanales order.

Members of this family are recognized as herbs with 2-ranked leaves and a brownish compact spike on the flowers.
