The Geraniaceae Family was named and described by Antoine Laurent de Jussieu in Genera Plantarum in 1789.
Plants of the World Online lists 8 accepted genera in this family named after the Geranium. Sometimes the family is commonly called the Cranesbill Family.
I have also included links to Geraniaceae.com and the International Geraniaceae Group for further reading. Geraniaceae.com not only gives a lot of information, they are also a source. There is another site I ran across a while back I will add when I find it.
I always like growing a few from this family, especially the scented leaved species.
