Asteraceae is one of the largest families of flowering plants, comprising over 23,600 species. Commonly referred to as the aster, daisy, or sunflower family, its members are distributed all over the world, exhibiting a wide range of characteristics and habits. The diversity within the Asteraceae family is immense. It includes a variety of growth forms such as herbs, shrubs, and trees. The family is recognized for its distinctive inflorescence, a specialized flower cluster structure that often resembles a single flower. Besides their ornamental value, many members of this family have significant economic importance. For example, some are cultivated for their edible parts like leaves (lettuce), seeds (sunflower), or roots (chicory), while others are valued for their medicinal properties.
