The APG II system, of 2003 (unchanged from the APG system, of 1998), also recognizes such a family and places it in the order Alismatales, in the clade monocots. The family includes perhaps four genera (with Triglochin the best known), totalling about a dozen species, which are found in cold or temperate regions in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.
Description[edit source | edit]
Juncaginaceae are marsh or aquatic herbs with linear, sheathing basal leaves.
The fruit is a capsule.
Example arrowgrasses Triglochin include the Marsh Arrowgrass (Triglochin palustris), the Sea Arrowgrass (Triglochin maritima), and also other species like Triglochin trichophora, Triglochin striata and Triglochin mucronata.
The Maundia genus was grouped within the Juncaginaceae family by the APG II. The newer APG III version, though, suggests it may be necessary to split Maundia off into its own family, Maundiaceae.
