How to use "Welwitschiaceae" in context?
The welwitschiaceae are a plant family of the order Aristolochiales.
The Welwitschiaceae are a small family of about twenty genera and about one hundred and thirty species of mainly herbaceous flowering plants. They are found in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, and are characterised by their long spikelike inflorescences, each bearing a single flower.
The Welwitschiaceae were formerly included in the family Aristolochiaceae, but have been split off as a separate family because of their distinctive inflorescences.
