Vaccinieae is a tribe of over 1000 species in the plant family Ericaceae.[1] The tribe consists of morphologically diverse woody plants. Species within Vaccinieae can be found on all continents except Australia and Antarctica.[1] Genetic analysis indicates that Vaccinieae is a monophyletic group.[1]
