Families need to be loaded with loader as well. Lee has fixed the current
VegBAnk plants by loading families manually and updating genera to having
families as parents. The loader needs to be updated to do this as USDA plants
Families should be loaded based on the family name (ie Poaceae), with status of
"accepted" and a usage of the same family name (Poaceae) as "scientific without
Authors" name system.

Plants are now loaded according to comment #5 .
Plants that are a genus use there family as a parent.
Family parents and the loading of categories higher than family are not loaded.
There should be a script that loads these checked into cvs.
Ideally an ant task should be designated for this step ( or at should be
documented in the "/vegbank/veg_taxa/README" file.
