- found: Stubbendieck, J.L. Common legumes of the Great Plains, c1989: p. xxi (The group of plants comprising the legumes have been variously treated. Conventionally, most taxonomists included all legumes in one family, the Fabaceae or Leguminosae. The large family was subdivided into the three subfamilies Mimosoideae, Caesalpinioideae, and Papilionoideae ... Other taxonomists have elevated these subfamilies to full family ranking in accordance with the International Legume Conference held at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, England, in 1978. As a result, most authors now recognize three families of legumes: Mimosaceae (Mimosa family), Caesalpiniaceae (Caesalpina Family), and Fabaceae (Bean Family))
