Article
The typification of eight names of species currently included in the family Cymodoceaceae is revised in order to contribute to their nomenclatural stability. The previously designated lectotype of Ruppia antarctica Labill. (≡ Amphibolis antarctica (Labill.) Sond. & Asch.) is cited. Lectotypes are designated here for Zostera nodosa Ucria (≡ Cymodoce...
Article
The typification of the name Pinus canariensis (Pinaceae) is revised. This name was initially “lectotypified” from a specimen collected by Christen Smith and kept in the herbarium of the University of Copenhagen (C). However, this designation is ineffective, and should be rejected, because two specimens (syntypes) are cited in the protologue by Can...

Premise of research. Riparian plants are highly dependent on water sources; consequently, general climatic conditions are less important to these taxa relative to woodland and shrubland species. This leads to interesting research questions regarding riparian plant taxa. Research on phylogeography of Mediterranean riparian tree and shrub species is...
