Chenopodiaceae

Chenopodiaceae

Chenopodiaceae is a family of flowering plants. Although widely recognized in most plant classifications (notably the Cronquist system), the APG system (1998) and the APG II system (2003) have included these plants in the family Amaranthaceae on the basis of evidence from molecular phylogenies. Some classifications now treat this group as Amaranthaceae subfamily Chenopodioideae, with the exception of a small number of genera now treated in the subfamilies Salicornioideae and Salsoloideae.
