Recently I decided to have a closer look at the E-Flora BC. On the plant identification index page http://www.geog.ubc.ca/biodiversity/eflora/identification.html there is the following information: "A Few Common Plant Families Recognition characters are provided below for a few plant famiilies found in BC. These are excerpted from Vascular Plant Families (by James Payne Smith Jr., 1977). . . . Fabaceae (Pea Family) Herbs, shrubs, vines, and trees with alternate, stipulate, compound leaves. Flowers are actinomorphic or zygomorphic, 5-merous, unicarpellate; fruit ia a legume or loment." (emphasizing in bold by me) I could believe that information if I didn't have an Eastern Redbud tree growing on my property. To my best knowledge the leaves are far from being compound. I understand that the information on the E-Flora page is very introductory, but "basic" and "misleading" are two different things. Omission of the little word "usually" makes a big difference here. Or may be I am missing something?
