Grasses, Sedges, Rushes - Families
|Plant species are grouped by botanists into "families", based on various characteristics, usually flower structure.
Families consist of plants that are closely related botanically.|
Another way this website groups species is by "Group" - species that look alike somehow, but are not necessarily related to each other.
In some cases, a Group of species may overlap a Family, in other cases, not.
Only families that have species on this site are listed.
