Angiosperm Phylogeny Family Database

To look up genera or families
To consult orders or higher taxa
To see a family list, with genus count in each
This is a database of plant genera along with their Angiosperm Phylogeny Group taxonomy, designed for rapid exploration and producing tables for quick download. The information comes from the APG web page, where all families and many genera are listed and discussed, as well as recent Gymnosperm and fern taxonomies. See further details or contact us with corrections or comments.

To submit multiple genus names to the database

Genus names:
  • Enter one Genus on each row (ie, Names should be separated by carriage returns)
  • You can paste a list from a text editor or spreadsheet
  • Use % or _ as wildcards (see hints above)
  • There is no limit on the number entered, other than search speed
