Full-text available
The Brazilian Caatinga is considered the richest nucleus of the Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests (SDTF) in the Neotropics, also exhibiting high levels of endemism, but the timing of origin and the evolutionary causes of its plant diversification are still poorly understood. In this study, we integrate comprehensive sampled dated molecular phylogenie...
Article
Tovomita is aNeotropical clade of Clusiaceae that includes 52 species widely distributed throughout the Amazon,Atlantic, Antilles, and Chocoan/southern Mesoamerican rainforests. Species-level relationships within Tovomita remain largely unexplored, thus hindering our understanding of their biogeography and the evolution of key morphological charact...

É apresentado o tratamento taxonômico do gênero Centrosema (Leguminosae) para o estado da Bahia, Brasil. São reconhecidas 15 espécies, o que representa 50% das espécies de Centrosema registradas no Brasil. O tratamento inclui chaves de identificação, descrições, ilustrações, comentários gerais e mapas de distribuição geográfica das espécies na Bahi...

Species occurrence records provide the basis for many biodiversity studies. They derive from georeferenced specimens deposited in natural history collections and visual observations, such as those obtained through various mobile applications. Given the rapid increase in availability of such data, the control of quality and accuracy constitutes a pa...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding of tropical forests has been revolutionised by monitoring in permanent plots. Data from global plot networks have transformed our knowledge of forests’ diversity, function, contribution to global biogeochemical cycles, and sensitivity to climate change. Monitoring has thus far been concentrated in rain forests. Despite increasing appr...

Background and aims-Vegetation on ironstone outcrops is highly threatened, particularly due to the impact of mining. In this study, two new species of Ditassa (Metastelmatinae, Asclepiadoideae, Apocynaceae) from the cangas of the Iron Quadrangle (Minas Gerais, Brazil) are described and illustrated, and their conservation status is discussed. Materi...
Article
Bauhinia includes about 150 species distributed across the tropics. Most Neotropical species belong to Bauhinia ser. Cansenia that includes unarmed trees and shrubs, mostly from areas under seasonally dry climate. A new species of this series is described here from the northeastern Brazilian states of Bahia and Sergipe. Bauhinia corifolia occurs in...

Article
Plant checklists constitute the fundamental knowledge on which further hypotheses of ecology, evolution, and biodiversity conservation are built. Here, we compiled a comprehensive and taxonomically verified checklist of the flowering plant species occurring in the Caatinga. We circumscribe Caatinga to include only the dry deciduous vegetation in No...
Chapter
The Caatinga Domain (CD) in northeastern Brazil harbors the largest and most continuous expanse of the seasonally dry tropical forest and woodland biome (SDTFW) in the New World. Phytogeographical data collected over the past 10 years support previous hypotheses that recognized two major biotas in Caatinga SDTFW: the Crystalline Caatinga, mostly as...

As florestas de Restinga do baixo-sul da Bahia, Brasil, encontram-se sobre sedimentos arenosos do Quaternário costeiro. Como sua flora é relativamente pouco conhecida, o presente estudo avaliou sua composição florística. Foram inventariadas quatro áreas nos municípios de Maraú e Itacaré e identificadas 302 espécies de angiospermas, distribuídas em...

This account of the Krameriaceae is a further contribution to the ongoing Flora of Bahia project. Four species are recognized in the genus Krameria : K. argentea , K. bahiana , K. grandiflora , and K. tomentosa . Descriptions and illustrations as well as general comments for the taxa and a key for identification are presented.
