Mostly in north temperate zone, some circumboreal, a few south to Mexico, New Zealand, and Australia.
The flower -heads are of two or more highly condensed racemes (D. Müller-Doblies 1970; U. Müller-Doblies 1969). The staminate flowers are extremely crowded and difficult to differentiate. The drupes are crowded in globose head made burlike by the persistent styles (beaks) and stigmas.
All chromosome accounts published to 1985 are given by C. D. K. Cook and M. S. Nicholls (1986).
Sparganium is sometimes included in Typhaceae.
Genus Genera 1, species 14 (9 species in the flora).
