The Cupressaceae family consists of species with mostly scale-like (as opposed to needle-like), opposite leaves. The male and female reproductive structures may be on the same individual (monoecious) or they may be on separate individuals (dioecious). Click on one of the flanking genera to get more information about the species within that genus.
