In members of the Thymelaeaceae
, tori are especially well-developed in the latewood, and it is thought that this tissue provides a back-up water conducting system in case the earlywood should become embolized (Dute et al.
The flowers of a number of Thymelaeaceae
are monosymmetric by reduction: some Pimelea species have a single stamen, in other genera the gynoecium is pseudomonomerous (Eckardt, 1937; Herber, 2003).

, were published, bringing the total number of volumes to six.
DDs are believed to be derived from a tigliane precursor and have an orthoester motif, though a very large number of DDs were identified, they occurred only in the plant families of Thymelaeaceae
and Euphorbiaceae (Evans and Soper, 1978).
