Phylogeny of the clusioid clade (Malpighiales): evidence from the plastid and mitochondrial genomes.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY The clusioid clade includes five families (i.e., Bonnetiaceae, Calophyllaceae, Clusiaceae s.s., Hypericaceae, and Podostemaceae) represented by 94 genera and ≈1900 species.Expand
Dispersal largely explains the Gondwanan distribution of the ancient tropical clusioid plant clade.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY The clusioid clade (Malpighiales) has an ancient fossil record (∼90 Ma) and extant representatives exhibit a pantropical distribution represented on all former GondwananExpand
Bimodality in stable isotope composition facilitates the tracing of carbon transfer from macrophytes to higher trophic levels
Even though the suitability of macrophytes to act as a carbon source to food webs has been questioned by some studies, some others indicate that macrophyte-derived carbon may play an important roleExpand
Endemism in Neotropical Podostemaceae1
Abstract Podostemaceae, a family of plants restricted to river rapids and waterfalls, are widely reported to have a high degree of local species endemism. We tested this idea for Neotropical membersExpand
Global variation in the beta diversity of lake macrophytes is driven by environmental heterogeneity rather than latitude

Systematics and Phylogeny of Neotropical Riverweeds (Podostemaceae: Podostemoideae)
Abstract New World Podostemaceae (riverweeds) comprise approximately 135 species in 21 genera, most of which are of tropical distribution, shed pollen in monads, and belong to subfamilyExpand
Hydrocharitaceae from central Brazilc a new species of Egerlia and a note on Apalanthe granatensis
Egeria heterostemon (Hydrocharitaceae), a new species from central Brazil, is described and illustrated. It is distinguished from congeneric species by its flowers having heteromorphic whorls ofExpand

Monograph of Castelnavia (Podostemaceae)
Abstract A monograph of Castelnavia is presented. Phylogenetic analyses of morphological characters reveal eight nonhomoplasious synapomorphies supporting the monophyly of the genus: 1) absence ofExpand
A New Species of Cipoia (Podostemaceae) from Minas Gerais, Brazil
Abstract A new species of Cipoia (Podostemaceae) from the state of Minas Gerais (Brazil) is described and illustrated: Cipoia ramosa. It is distinguished from the only other species in the genus, C.Expand
