ABOUT FAMILY (Weakley Flora)
Chenopodiaceae Ventenat 1799 (Goosefoot Family)
SUMMARY: A family of about 100 genera and about 150 species, herbs and shrubs, cosmopolitan, but especially in xeric and/or saline areas. Sometimes recently included in the Amaranthaceae, but each traditional family is monophyletic and there seems no reason to combine them.

ABOUT GENUS (Weakley Flora)
Salicornia Linnaeus 1753 (Glasswort)
SUMMARY: A genus of about 10-20 species, succulent herbs, of cosmopolitan distribution.
REFERENCE: Judd & Ferguson (1999)=Z; Ball in FNA (2003b); Kadereit et al. (2007); Kühn in Kubitzki, Rohwer, & Bittrich (1993). [also see Sarcocornia]
