>From ?glm() you get:

...

Usage

glm(formula, family = gaussian, data, weights, subset,

    na.action, start = NULL, etastart, mustart,     offset, control = glm.control(...), model = TRUE,     method = "glm.fit", x = FALSE, y = TRUE, contrasts = NULL, ...)

...

So the default family is the gaussian.

Best,
Dimitris
