ABOUT FAMILY (Weakley Flora)

SUMMARY: As here circumscribed (excluding Celtis and relatives), a family of 6-7 genera and about 35 species, of temperate, subtropical, and boreal Northern Hemisphere, rarely extending into the Southern Hemisphere). Zavada & Kim (1996) discuss compelling reasons to remove Celtis from the Ulmaceae.
