The Caprifoliaceae or honeysuckle fam- ily is because of recent taxonomic work one of the most confusing families I have encountered. The most recent published work (Heywood) gives the number of genera as 12 and the number of species as about 250. It has traditionally been placed in order Dipsacales and is closely related to the Valerianaceae. Some well known genera such as Viburnum and Sambucus have been moved out of the family either to Adoxaceae or to families of their own. Restricted to the northern temperate regions, it is a family of mostly shrubs and viney species with a few her- baceous ones. The leaves are typically opposite and estipulate, and the flowers are tubular and funnel- or bell-shaped, usually with five outwardly spreading lobes, while the fruits are most often ber-
ries or drupes. The family's best known members are the honeysuckles. A num- ber of species have edible fruits.
