Wikipedia Abstract

The Myricaceae are a small family of dicotyledonous shrubs and small trees in the order Fagales. There are three genera in the family, although some botanists separate many species from Myrica into a fourth genus Morella. About 55 species are usually accepted in Myrica, one in Canacomyrica, and one in Comptonia. Well-known members of this family include bayberry and sweetfern. \n* Canacomyrica \n* Comptonia \n* Myrica (includes: Morella)
