Families in the Database

You can also look a list of all the Common Names of plants in the database (75K).

This list is something that me (the webmaster) put together on a rainy afternoon, so any errors are mine rather than pfaf's. Most of the clasification has come from Flowering Plants of The World ed: V.Haywood, Batsford. With a few alterations to get the names of families in the database to fit.

Jump to Monocotyledon (Single seed leaf) Dicotyledons (Two seed leaves) Non-flowering plants including Ferns and Conifers.

First off there are some items with general entries for an entire genus.
