Geranium Taxonomic Information System




The genus Geranium (Geraniaceae) which contains about 400 species recognised, is a widespread group of vascular plants, absent only in tropical lowlands, deserts and polar regions. After Knuth’s (1912) monograph, several regional accounts as well as some detailed studies on some sections were published, but no comprehensive taxonomic treatment is nowadays available.

The author of this page is involved in a new revision supported by a database system in order to improve consistence and accessibility. Considering this revision is still far from the ending, it could be useful to make some of the database available –even being not finished yet.

Usage of the data hosted in this web server implies in all cases the explicit recognition and indication of the source, as follows:
