of family names, prepared by James L. Reveal,
Department of Plant Biology, University of Maryland,
USA.This concordance of flowering plant family names has
been prepared at the request of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
and is intended as a quick search database for family
names and their alternative uses by Cronquist, Dahlgren
and Thorne. When available, Takhtajan's nomenclature will
be added. This information also supplements the treatment
given in the first volume of Flora North America
and brings that listing up-to-date. For a complete
concordance of the current systems in use presently, see

taxonomy class offered at the University of Maryland.
