The taxonomy of the Dipterocarpaceae and the characters that define the family are developed in this chapter. A brief introduction of each of the three subfamilies, the Monotoideae, Pakaraimoideae, and Dipterocarpoideae, is followed with a more detailed description of the morphological traits of the Dipterocarpoideae subfamily which constitutes over 90% of species. Alternative classification systems based on a range of morphological traits are described. Common morphological characteristics for field identification of the main genera are presented and discussed, with particular emphasis of tree form, and character associated with bark structure, leaves, flowers, and fruit.

Keywords:   bark structure, classification, Dipterocarpoideae, flowers, fruit, Monotoideae, morphology, Pakaraimoideae, taxonomy, tree form
