Welcome to Revision of Family Gentianaceae

Species of the Gentianaceae occur in diverse vegetation zones and plant communities, including tropical forests and savannahs, temperate woodlands, prairies, arctic and alpine regions, as well as in littoral and ruderal plant communities. Most grow in mestic habitats. Some are found in wetlands or on tidal flats, but none is truly aquatic or marine. True desert species do not exist in the family (Gilg 1895; Struwe et al. 2002).[1]
