Gisekiaceae

Gisekiaceae

Introduction

Gisekia was excluded from Aizoaceae and raised to family level by Nakai (1942). Recent molecular studies support the family status and show an isolated position of Gisekiaceae within core-Caryophyllales (Brockington & al. 2009; Schäfferhoff & al. 2009; Crawley & Hilu 2012; Bissinger & al. 2014).
