Convolvulaceae are a group of about 60 genera and more than 1,650 species of mostly herbaceous vines, but also trees, shrubs and herbs. According to the study of D. F. Austin the family Convolvulaceae can be classified in the tribes Ericybeae, Cressea, Convolvuleae, merremioids, Ipomoeae, Argyreiae, Poraneae, Dichondreae and Cuscuteae (sometimes classified as a separate family Cuscutaceae).

Members of the family are well known as showy garden plants (e.g. morning glory) and as troublesome weeds (e.g. bindweed).

Morning glory pollen grains. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen grains from a morning glory flower (Ipomoea sp.). The grains have a highly sculptured outer wall (exine), which assists its dispersal by improving its adherence to pollinating insects. The characteristic surface of a pollen grain is used by botanists to recognise and classify plants. Each pollen grain contains a male gamete (reproductive cell) that is intended to fertilise an egg or ovule (female gamete), and initiate the formation of a seed for a new plant.
