The Araceae are a family of herbaceous monocots with 104 genera and about 3700 species.
The vast majority of the genera occur in the New World tropics. These plants are best characterized by their distinctive inflorescence, a spadix with bisexual or unisexual (sometimes with sterile region) and subtended by a solitary spathe on a long or very short peduncle. Leaves range from simple and entire to compound and highly divided, and may be basal or produced from an aerial stem.
