Information system "Historia Gagearum" has been designed for discussing and data collecting
about systematic and morphology of tribe Gageeae Rouy (Liliaceae).
Different authors include in the tribe from one to three genera. On this moment,
the tribe includes genus Gagea Salisb. and genus Lloydia Reichb.
First genus is large. It contains more than 280 species. Second genus is monotypic.
Therefore, it demands a critical discussion about systematic position of other taxa,
wich had been inclided into the genus Lloydia by tradition. Different points
of view on the systematic of this group of Liliaceae will be discuss on this site,
as well as general differences across morphology, ontogenesis, embryogenesis, structure
of stems etc. of other groups of Monocotyledons.
