How many clarinet families are there in a orchestra?

There may be up to three or four different types (different sizes and ranges) of clarinet in a standard orchestra, depending on the particular music to be played. However, they would not be referred to as 'clarinet families'. The family to which clarinets belong is the 'woodwind family', which in a standard symphony orchestra also comprises flutes/piccolos, oboes, and bassoons. There are well over a dozen different types of clarinet, many of them very specialised, but you would not expect to find more than a few types occurring together in a standard orchestra.
