Genus Summary: A genus of about 140-200 species (depending on circumscription), perennial herbs (rarely shrubs), of Eurasia, North America, Central America, South America, and Africa. Hoot, Meyer, & Manning (2012), Hoot, Reznicek, & Palmer (1994), and others discuss the phylogeny of Anemone, and also show why Hepatica (and other segregates not in our area, such as Pulsatilla) should be included within it. The infrageneric classification shown in the key is that of Hoot, Meyer, & Manning (2012).
