Article
Sucupira-branca is a popular name for the papilionoid legume tree genus Pterodon (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae), which is amply distributed across South American savannas and seasonally dry tropical forests. Pterodon has been strongly supported as monophyletic in all molecular phylogenetic analyses and stands out within the Dipterygeae clade by the...
Article
The Brazilian Atlantic Forest domain has one of the highest levels of plant species endemism, but the intense historical fragmentation across the coastal Atlantic tropical rain forest has reduced the original vegetation to < 10% and an island-like, patchy landscape. Despite such unprecedented vegetation loss, biogeographically and phylogenetically...

The shortage of reliable primary taxonomic data limits the description of biological taxa and the understanding of biodiver-sity patterns and processes, complicating biogeographical, ecological, and evolutionary studies. This deficit creates a significant taxo-nomic impediment to biodiversity research and conservation planning. The taxonomic impedi...

We conducted a floristic study in the National Forest of Caxiuanã (FLONA Caxiuanã) located in the state of Pará, Brazil, in the municipalities of Portel and Melgaço. This forest is characterized by Amazonian physiognomies such as lowlands, seasonally flooded areas (várzea and igapó), Amazonian white-sand scrub (campinarana) and secondary forests. T...

The urge to organise the world around us is an essential part of human nature. Naming and categorising enable us to store and access information ef ciently. The need to name and categorise extends to the natural world and, in particular, to living organisms. The science underpinning this area of knowledge is called Taxonomy, and is as old as humani...
Article
The papilionoid legume trees generally known as tonka , baru and cumaru comprise the taxonomically complex genus Dipteryx . In addition to being ecologically important across the neotropical biomes of rain forests and savannas, Dipteryx species are valuable sources of timber as well as an array of coumarin products. This genus currently comprises 1...
Article
Dipteryx timber has been heavily exploited in South America since 2000's due to the increasing international demand for hardwood. Developing tools for the genetic identification of Dipteryx species and their geographical origin can help to promote legal trading of timber. A collection of 800 individual trees, belonging to six different Dipteryx spe...

Resumo A Floresta Nacional (Flona) de Caxiuanã localiza-se no estado do Pará, norte do Brasil e abrange os municípios de Portel e Melgaço. Inserida no domínio fitogeográfico da Amazônia, a Flona abrange os tipos de vegetação floresta de Terra Firme, Várzea, Igapó, Campinarana e Capoeira. O objetivo do estudo é uma sinopse das espécies de Caesalpini...

The Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) was established by the Conference of Parties in 2002 to decrease the loss of plant diversity, reduce poverty and contribute to sustainable development. To achieve this overarching goal, the GSPC has established a series of targets, one of which is to ensure that plant diversity is well understood, s...
