The family Rubiaceae is characterized by having predominantly zoophilous flowers. Like other large families of angiosperms (the Compositae or the Rosaceae, for example) it has, however, also produced a number of (secondarily) anemophilous representatives. In the Rubiaceae, it is the apparently natural tribe Anthospermeae and the monogeneric tribe Theligoneae which are comprised of exclusively wind-pollinated taxa (Puff 1982a)1.
