Aizoaceae
(Martynov, 1820)


Etymology: Family Aizoon.
Origin: Warm and subtropical areas with special preponderance of South Africa and to a lesser extent Australia.

They are herbaceous plants or subarbustivas, with entire, opposite leaves, often fleshy and papillose. Virtually all family members are xerophytic, ie plants adapted to withstand long periods of drought, so they are well represented in the desert areas.
