Plant Family


Family CN: Bellflower Family
Family Code: CAMPAN
Family Parent: [in ASTERALES]
Family Authority: A.L. de Jussieu 1789
Summary: A family of about 80-82 genera and 2000-2400 species, mostly herbs, cosmopolitan. There is controversy about the circumscription of the family, specifically whether subfamily Lobelioideae should be recognized at the family level. Recent phylogenetic studies of the Campanuloideae also suggest that substantial rearrangements of generic boundaries will be needed (Crowl et al. 2014).
