The tribal classification begun on the main page now seems to be rather premature. A full list using Al-Shehbaz (2012), would see 49 tribes with still some 20 species not allocated. It seems that this 'splitty ' approach has partly come about as many unplaced genera, which are sister to others, have found themselves in their own monotypic tribes. Relationships are becoming clearer so expect more changes! See APGIII website Brassicales page for further discussion. Andyboorman (talk) 15:06, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

As an example of the changes see Coluteocarpeae Andyboorman (talk) 19:41, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

A recircumscription of the family updating Al-Shehbaz, 2012 and Brassibase is being prepared for publication. Changes will be implemented in due course. Andyboorman (talk) 21:00, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
