FAMILY INDEX

FAMILY CODE: CAPRIF
FAMILY SCIENTIFIC: Caprifoliaceae
FAMILY AUTHORITY: A.L. de Jussieu 1789
FAMILY COMMON: Honeysuckle Family
FAMILY SUMMARY: As here broadly circumscribed, a family of about 30 genera and 900 species, shrubs, lianas, herbs, nearly cosmopolitan, but mainly north temperate and boreal. Circumscription of the family is controversial. Various segregate families (or reassignments) of taxa traditionally placed in the Caprifoliaceae have been proposed, including the transfer of Sambucus and Viburnum to the Adoxaceae, placement of Diervilla and Weigela in the Diervillaceae (Backlund & Pyck 1998), placement of Abelia and Linnaea in the Linnaeaceae (Backlund & Pyck 1998; Pyck et al. 2002), and retention of Lonicera, Symphoricarpos, and Triosteum in a much more narrowly circumscribed Caprifoliaceae. Alternatively, all these taxa could be included in the Caprifoliaceae, along with Dipsacaceae and Valerianaceae, as a more broadly circumscribed Caprifoliaceae (APG III 2009), a circumscription followed here.
