The evolutionary history and systematics of the Brassicaceae (the mustard family) is the focus of intense study using several molecular markers. These studies have elucidated relationships with tribes but have so far been unable to resolve relationship among lineages that arose near the origins of the family. The reliance on fruit morphology to the exclusion of other morphological characters has, in the past, produced spurious taxonomies in the family. It is probable that the family arose in humid, hot or warm regions of the Near East sometime earlier than 32 million years ago.
