A family of shrubs and small trees in which the leaves are leathery and evergreen. The flowers have 4 or 5 free sepals, a corolla of 4 or 5 fused petals, and 8–10 free stamens. The anthers are porous, and the ovary may be superior or inferior. The fruit is a capsule, drupe, or berry. There are 103 genera, with about 3350 species. They are cosmopolitan in distribution but centred in the northern hemisphere and almost absent from Australasia.
