A Floresta Nacional do Tapajós (Flona Tapajós) é uma unidade de conservação (UC) de uso sustentável criada através do Decreto n° 73.684, de 19 de fevereiro de 1974. Delimitada a oeste pelo rio Tapajós e a leste pela rodovia BR-163, ao longo de sua história sua área original foi modificada diversas vezes, possuindo atualmente 527.319 hectares locali...
Article
Aspidosperma is one of the most diverse and economically relevant taxa within Apocynaceae, leading to several taxonomic studies being carried out with the genus. However, since its species number varies widely depending on the treatment, questions regarding which species ought to be recognized in the genus are frequent. We addressed all names and d...

The new species Ouratea yamamotoana (Ochnaceae) from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest biodiversity hotspot is described and illustrated. The new species resembles Ouratea camposportoi, from which it differs by the persistent stipules, chartaceous leaves with cordate or slightly auriculate base, flowers with smaller pedicels, spathulate or elliptic pet...

Background and aims – Mitracarpus semirianus , an overlooked new species from the “campo rupestre” of the Chapada Diamantina, in the state of Bahia, northeastern Brazil, is here described and illustrated. Specimens of the new species have been previously identified as M. frigidus or M. lhotzkyanus , with which its distinction is discussed. We also...

The Atlantic Forest is one of the most threatened biomes in the world. Despite that, this biome still includes many areas that are poorly known floristically, including several protected areas, such as the "Floresta Nacional do Rio Preto" ("Flona do Rio Preto"), located in the Brazilian State of Espírito Santo. This study used a published vascular...

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...

Premise To further advance the understanding of the species-rich, economically and ecologically important angiosperm order Myrtales in the rosid clade, comprising nine families, approximately 400 genera and almost 14,000 species occurring on all continents (except Antarctica), we tested the Angiosperms353 probe kit. Methods We combined high-throug...

The family Vochysiaceae, representative for Brazilian Cerrado, does not stand out in Caatinga environments. Due to the lack of studies that address the behavior of species of this family in disjunct Cerrado environments, this study aimed to investigate structural, ecological and phenological aspects of Qualea parviflora and Callisthene fasciculata...

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...

Premise: Despite the fast pace of exploration of the patterns and processes influencing Neotropical plant hyperdiversity, the taxa explored are mostly from large groups that are widely distributed, morphologically diverse, or economically important. Vochysiaceae is an example of an undersampled taxon, providing an excellent system for investigatin...

Phylogenomics has become increasingly popular in recent years mostly due to the increased affordability of next generation sequencing techniques. Phylogenomics has sparked interest in multiple fields of research, including systematics, ecology, epidemiology, and even personalized medicine, agriculture and pharmacy. Despite this trend, it is usually...
Article
The current classification of angiosperms is based primarily on concatenated plastid markers and maximum likelihood (ML) inference. This approach has been justified by the assumption that plastid DNA (ptDNA) is inherited as a single locus and that its individual genes produce congruent trees. However, structural and functional characteristics of pt...

Popularmente conhecido como lacre, Vismia (Hypericaceae) é um gênero relativamente pouco estudado e que necessita de investigações detalhadas sobre caracteres diagnósticos que permitam distinguir suas espécies. No âmbito dos estudos morfológicos e taxonômicos em curso sobre o gênero, o presente trabalho teve como objetivos analisar e caracterizar a...

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...

Vismia comprises approximately 60 neotropical species, 30 of which are known from Brazil. Most Brazilian species occur in the Amazon Forest, but seven occur in the Atlantic Forest. The most relevant characters for the identification of Vismia species are leaf indument, presence or absence of glands and/ or canals in the petals and sepals, number of...

With five neotropical genera and ca. 220 species, Vochysieae is the largest tribe of Vochysiaceae, comprising more than 90 % of its species. Preliminary phylogenetic analyses with matK sequence data indicated that Vochysieae may be paraphyletic, separated into the clades QRC (Qualea, Ruizterania and Callisthene) and VS (Vochysia, Salvertia). Whethe...

Vismia conduplicata, a new species of Hypericaceae from Mato Grosso state, Brazil, is described and illustrated. It is associated to "campos de murundus", a kind of Cerrado physiognomy with woody plants growing on earth mounds, in a grassland matrix. The species was included in Vismia sect. Trianthera, based on the number of stamens per stamen fasc...

Significance Large floristic datasets that purportedly represent the diversity and composition of the Amazon tree flora are being widely used to draw conclusions about the patterns and evolution of Amazon plant diversity, but these datasets are fundamentally flawed in both their methodology and the resulting content. We have assembled a comprehensi...

Vochysia Aublet (1775: 18) encompasses ca. 140 species, distributed from Mexico to southern Brazil. They are mainly large trees, with spurred yellow flowers, usually 3-petaled and with a single fertile stamen (Kawasaki 2007). The genus was described by Aublet (1775) in his work on plants from French Guiana as ‘ Vochy ’, taken from a native name amo...

Documenting how diversity patterns vary at fine-and broad scales may help answer many questions in theoretical and applied ecology. However, studies tend to compare diversity patterns at the same scale and within the same taxonomic group, which limits the applicability and generality of the results. Here, we have investigated whether vegetation-dwe...

We surveyed a Cerrado and Riparian Forest vegetation area located at São Carlos Federal University (21°58’ S, 47°51’ W). The objective of the survey was to provide a full inventory of the area’s angiosperm flora. This inventory was conducted in a region in which few remnants of Cerrado and Riparian Forest are left because of the destruction of thes...
