Images and Descriptions of Flowering Plant Families

Alphabetical Listing

This is an integrated alphabetical listing of families as circumscribed by Judd et al. (2002) and Arthur Cronquist (1981). Families that are circumscribed essentially the same in both works are designated "C, J" in the table.  Family treatments unique to either work are designated "C" for Cronquist and "J" for Judd et al., as appropriate. Although the family circumscriptions (C vs. J) differ in specific instances, the total number of families that accommodate the genera presented on this site is very nearly the same in both systems of classification (C = 231; J = 233).

Select a family from the tables for information and photos.
