Distribution of the Detarieae.

The tribe Detarieae is one of the subdivisions of the plant family Fabaceae (the family which includes the legumes). This tribe includes many tropical trees, some of which are used for timber or have ecological importance. The tribe consists of 81 genera, 53 of which are native to Africa. Pride of Burma (Amherstia nobilis) and tamarind (Tamarindus indica) are two of the most notable species in Detarieae.

Taxonomy[edit]

Detarieae sensu lato consists of three major clades, including the former tribe Amherstieae and the resin-producing Detarieae.
