The Brasicaceae are represented in Peru by 27 genera and 111 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), mostly herbs. Here we recognize 34 endemic taxa in 12 genera. Two genera, Catadysia and Dactylocardamum, are also endemic to Peru. These endemic taxa are found mainly in the Very Humid and Dry Puna, and High-Andean regions, growing above 3000 m elevation. We applied IUCN categories and criteria to 31 endemic taxa. Six endemic species are known from the Peruvian park system.
