The Caesalpinioideae are mainly trees distributed in the moist tropics. Their flowers are zygomorphic, but are very variable. Nodulation is rare in this subfamily, and where it does occur nodules have a primitive structure. The tropics are the geographic region of the Earth centered on the equator and limited in latitude by the two tropics: the Tropic of Cancer in the northern hemisphere and the Tropic of Capricorn in the southern hemisphere. ... Root nodules occur on the roots of plants that associate with symbiotic bacteria. ...

Circumscription and status of this group is mildly controversial. Although the group as such is well recognised, there are a number of genera whose placement (here, or in one of the two other subfamilies) is not generally agreed on. In some classifications, for example the Cronquist system, the group is recognized at the rank of family, Caesalpiniaceae. Recent systematic research, using molecular data, has shown the group to be paraphyletic with respect to subfamilies Faboideae (Papilionoideae) and Mimosoideae and a split is being considered. The Cronquist system is a scheme for the classification of flowering plants (or angiosperms). ...

The genera may be classified in four tribes, Caesalpinieae, Cassieae, Cercideae and Detarieae. The tribe Cercideae has sometimes been included in the subfamily Faboideae (aka Papilionoideae) in the past. Tribes Abreae Adesmieae Aeschynomeneae Amorpheae Bossiaeeae Brongniartieae Carmichaelieae Cicereae Crotalarieae Dalbergieae Desmodieae Dipterygeae Euchresteae Galegeae Genisteae Hedysareae Indigofereae Liparieae Loteae Millettieae Mirbelieae Phaseoleae Podalyrieae Psoraleeae Robinieae Sophoreae Swartzieae Thermopsideae Trifolieae Vicieae Genera See text The Subfamily Faboideae is in the flowering plant family, Fabaceae. ...

NationMaster - Encyclopedia: List of genera in Caesalpinioideae (226 words)
Caesalpinioideae is a subfamily of the large flowering plant family Fabaceae.
The tribe Cercideae has sometimes been included in the subfamily Faboideae in the past, but genetic evidence shows it is correctly placed here.
The Caesalpinioideae are mainly trees distributed in the moist tropics.
Leguminosae - LoveToKnow 1911 (0 words)
In Caesalpinioideae endosperm is absent, or present forming a thin layer round the embryo as in the tribe Bauhinieae, or copious and cartilaginous as in the Cassieae.
Mimosoideae and Caesalpinioideae are richly developed in the tropical rain forests,, where Papilion atae are less conspicuous and mostly herbaceous; in subtropical forests arborescent forms of all three suborders occur.
In the temperate regions, treeforms are rare - thus Mimosoideae are unrepresented in Europe; Caes a'_pinioi deae are represented by species of Cercis, Gymnocladus and Gleditschia; Papi lionatae by Robinia; but herbaceous Papilionatae abound and penetrate to the limit of growth of seed-plants in arctic and high alpine regions.
