Plant Families & Genera
Plant Families & Genera are a subcategory that help by grouping various Plant species into their taxonomic families or genuses. Plant families are taxonomic groups of plants that are classified together based on shared characteristics, such as the structure of their flowers, fruit, and seeds. These shared characteristics are used to infer evolutionary relationships between the plants in the family. Plant genera are smaller groups within plant families that share even more closely related characteristics and are also used to infer evolutionary relationships. In scientific classification, plant families and genera are given scientific names that are based on the International Code of Nomenclature.
