Plant Genera


Family Code: CYPERA
Genus Code: ISOLE
Genus CN: bulrush
Genus Authority: R. Br.
Genus Summary: A genus of about 60 species, herbs, subcosmopolitan in distribution. Since Isolepis is more closely related to Cyperus than to Scirpus, in which it has often been included, its separation from Scirpus is clearly warranted. The generic delimitation of Isolepis in relation to Ficinia and Scirpoides is uncertain.
Genus References: Smith in FNA (2002b); Goetghebeur in Kubitzki (1998b).
