The Chenopodiaceae are a family of flowering plants, also called the goosefoot family. Although widely recognized in most plant classifications (notably the Cronquist system), the more recent gene-based APG system (1998) and the APG II system (2003) have included these plants in the family Amaranthaceae; molecular phylogeny has shown it to be paraphyletic.
For any further information, please see main article Amaranthaceae (sensu lato) and the subfamily articles (Betoideae, Camphorosmoideae, Chenopodioideae, Corispermoideae, Polycnemoideae, Salicornioideae, Salsoloideae, and Suaedoideae).
