Daisy Family Compositae

Group: 
Flowers

The daisy family is certainly diverse. Its members include dandelions, hawkweeds and thistles and a range of less obvious species. They are known as compositae because they have complex flower structures; some a central cluster with florest around it and other just a cluster of thin, even thread-like, petals.

The information about this group of species has been organised into reports, charts, maps and photos. Click a pic below to see the detail:
