Originally proposed by Alefeld (1859) and provided a detailed generic description (Kupicha, 1981). The genus was revised by van der Maesen (1972), who largely adhered to the classification of Popov (1929). The latter divided the species into 2 subgenera – Pseudononis Popov and Viciastrum Popov; 4 sections – Monocicer Popov, Chamaecicer Popov, Polycicer Popov and Acanthocicer Popov; and 14 series. The major taxonomic divisions were made on the basis of flower size, life span, growth habit, whether the plants are woody or herbaceous, and form of leaf apex, terminating in a tendril, spine or This chapter reviews the taxonomy of the genus Cicer (Leguminosae, Cicereae), taking into account the 1972 revision and the 1987 update by van der Maesen, and new data available since then.
