A taxonomic revision of the genus Pastinaca L. was carried out with respect to fruitmacro- and micro-morphology, anatomy, palynology, and phytochemistry. The study covers the world distribution of the genus, confined to Europe and Asia, except for Pastinaca sativa L. subsp. sativa (parsnip) cultivated all over the world. Pollen studies showed that the pollen of the genus could be described as cerebroid. Three flavonoid compounds were detected in the genus. Pastinaca is represented with eight species and four subspecies in the world. P. latifolia DC. is regarded as a subspecies of P. sativa.
