I am curious as to the classification system used for the plant files, many of the family designations such as Papilionaceae, Flacourtiaceae, etc. are generally no longer used by taxonomists following modern phylogenetic systems. I know that many people still utilize older classifications like Cronquist (1981), but I think it would be better if Dave's could follow a system that derives its classification from evolutionary relationships (like APG).

The reason why Fabaceae was split is somewhere in the depths of this forum, 2006 that thread was started but whether that still stands, I wouldn't know.
