Article
Full-text available
The Eurasian species Artemisia vulgaris L. has been reported from the Eastern Cape Province (Stutterheim District) in South Africa since at least half a century. However, examination of relevant herbarium specimens has demonstrated that the South African plant material belongs to a morphologically similar East Asian species, A. verlotiorum. It is i...

The localities of Opuntia humifusa (Cactaceae) in the continental part of Ukraine are described. All previous findings reported in Ukraine were made in the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, where the species sometimes behaves as a transformer and is threatening Crimea's natural phytodiversity. The first locality in continental Ukraine...

A proposal to conserve the widely accepted name Stipa ucrainica P.A. Smirn. (a steppe species in need of conservation, occurring from Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Romania through Moldova, southern Ukraine, southern European Russia to the Caucasus and western Kazakhstan) against its earlier homonym S. ucranica Roem. & Schult. More information is av...

General recommendations regarding proper type designation of names of taxa described by Turczaninow in his Animadversiones series of articles (as well as in some other publications) are provided. It is concluded that, as clearly indicated in the protologues, all (or almost all) taxa described in these publications are based on specimens from the pr...

Colonies of Artemisia verlotiorum (Asteraceae), an alien species of East Asian origin now widespread in many countries of the world, were found in 2018 in Kyiv in the Syrets Arboretum (Syretskiy Dendropark) and in a nearby abandoned plant nursery and greenhouses. At present, three clonal colonies have been revealed. Most probably rhizomes of that s...

Recent molecular phylogenetic results demonstrated that the genus Inula in its traditional circumscription is polyphyletic and its type, I. helenium, belongs to a clade phylogenetically distant from the clade containing the majority of species earlier placed in Inula. The nomenclatural proposal to conserve the generic name Inula with I. hirta as th...
Article
Full-text available
A corrected lectotypification of the name Artemisia umbrosa (= A. vulgaris var. umbrosa, Asteraceae) is discussed. It is demonstrated that Besser (1832) in fact cited in the protologue four concrete specimens that should be thus treated as syntypes. Following Art. 9.3 and 9.12 of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (...

Article
Full-text available
Artemisia umbrosa, initially described as A. vulgaris var. umbrosa, is an East Asian species that has been introduced and is now locally naturalized in some European countries. It has a complicated nomenclatural and taxonomic history. The name Artemisia umbrosa has been misapplied to related taxa of Artemisia sect. Artemisia, including A. verlotior...

Following recent molecular phylogenetic studies, the genus Sphaeromeria has been synonymized with Artemisia and its taxa are included in Artemisia subg. Tridentatae. The new combination is proposed, Artemisia nuttallii (Torr. & A. Gray) Mosyakin, L.M. Shultz & G.V. Boiko, comb. nov. (= Sphaeromeria argentea Nutt., non A. argentea L’Her.; Tanacetum...

Corrections and additions are provided for the existing typifications of plant names in Artemisia subg. Tridentatae. In particular, second-step lectotypifications are proposed for the names Artemisia trifida Nutt., nom. illeg. (A. tripartita Rydb., the currently accepted replacement name), A. fischeriana Besser (= A. californica Lessing, the curren...

Artemisia mongolica, initially described as A. vulgaris var. mongolica, is lectotypified by a specimen annotated by Besser (the author of the basionym) that originated from Fischer’s herbarium and is deposited in the Besser Memorial Collection at KW, with three isolectotypes in LE. An earlier neotypification by Filatova (2003) is therefore unnecess...

Vincetoxicum Wolf включает более 100 видов, распространенных на территории Евразии. Большая часть из 12 видов рода, произрастающих на юго-востоке Украины – автохтонные элементы флоры, некоторые являются реликтами (Остапко, 2005). Трудности как в таксономии, так и в разработке методов по сохранению отдельных представителей рода Vincetoxicum связаны...
Thesis
Full-text available
The Thesis is devoted to investigation of the genus Artemisia L. in the Flora of Ukraine. 30 species from 6 sections and 3 subgenera are revealed by critical systematic revision. Decisions of questions at issue on taxonomy and nomenclature of species are offered. Comparative-morphologic investigation of the taxa Artemisia genus was carried out,...

The National Herbarium of Ukraine (KW) is the largest herbarium in Ukraine (ca. 2 263 000 specimens); it is also listed by Index Herbariorum among the most important herbaria of the world. According to the Index Herbariorum Annual Report for 2020 (http://sweetgum.nybg.org/science/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/The_Worlds_Herbaria_2020.pdf), the KW herbarium occupiers the 28th position in the world and the 21st position in Europe by the number of specimens. Here we will add various publications related to the unique 19th-century historical herbaria of Wilibald [Willibald] Swibert Joseph Gottlieb von Besser (1784–1842) and Nikolai [Nicolai or Nicholas] Stepanovich Turczaninow (1796–1863; also sometimes transliterated as Turczaninow, Turchaninov, Turtschaninov, or Turtschaninoff). Both Besser (KW-BESS) and Turczaninow (KW-TURCZ) collections at KW are amazingly rich in type specimens, including those collected by these two botanists, and also specimens received from contemporary botanists and plant collectors from all parts of the world. Historical specimens in these two collections are not only of exceptional scientific importance – they should be also considered as important historical and cultural heritage.
