How to use "Family pandanaceae" in context?
The Family Pandanaceae is all about the flowering plants, Fabaceae, in the order Pandanales. The name pandan comes from the Tamil word meaning 'lathering brush' and this is because these plants produce a type of latex sap that can be used to clean surfaces. Members of this family are endemic to the Southeast Asia region, with a few reaching other parts of the world. They are distinguished by the use of pandan in their reproductive processes, and are typically small- to medium-sized trees or shrubs with striking inflorescences.
