Phylogeny and circumscription of the near-endemic Brazilian tribe Microlicieae (Melastomataceae).
The members of tribe Microlicieae in the flowering plant family Melastomataceae are nearly all endemic to the cerrado biome of Brazil. Traditional classifications of the Melastomataceae haveExpand
Phylogeny of Miconia (Melastomataceae): Patterns of Stamen Diversification in a Megadiverse Neotropical Genus
Phylogenetic relationships within Miconia and other genera in the Neotropical tribe Miconieae were investigated using a maximum parsimony analysis of nuclear internal transcribed spacer and ndhFExpand
Phylogenetic relationships and distribution of New World Melastomeae (Melastomataceae)
In this study we present a phylogenetic analysis of Melastomeae, focusing on the Neotropical members of the tribe, a group of c. 70 species in 30 genera. In total, 236 species, including outgroupsExpand
Revised infrafamilial classification of Symplocaceae based on phylogenetic data from DNA sequences and morphology
Phylogenetic analyses were conducted with 51 parsimony-informative morphological characters and previously generated DNA sequence data from five genic regions (ITS, trnL-trnF, rpll6, matK, trnC-trnD)Expand
Northern Hemisphere origins of the amphi-Pacific tropical plant family Symplocaceae
Aim We sought to reconstruct the historical biogeography of the amphi-Pacific tropical disjunct plant family Symplocaceae in the context of competing Northern Hemisphere (boreotropical) versusExpand
New Combinations and New Names in Some Brazilian Microlicieae (Melastomataceae), with Notes on the Delimitation of Lavoisiera, Microlicia, and Trembleya
Consideration of generic limits in the largely Brazilian tribe Microlicieae has resulted in an emended circumscription of the genus Lavoisi­ era to include those species with a capsule that dehiscesExpand
Phylogeny and infrageneric classification of Symplocos (Symplocaceae) inferred from DNA sequence data.
Symplocos comprises ∼300 species of woody flowering plants with a disjunct distribution between the warm-temperate to tropical regions of eastern Asia and the Americas. Phylogenetic analyses of 111Expand
Henrietteeae (Melastomataceae): A New Neotropical Berry-Fruited Tribe
Abstract With nearly 2,000 species, all restricted to the Neotropics, Miconieae represent the largest radiation within Melastomataceae. Generic limits and relationships within the tribe have longExpand
Nomenclator botanicus for the neotropical genus Miconia (Melastomataceae: Miconieae)
Miconia has 1057 species and is the largest genus of woody flowering plants with a distribution restricted to tropical America. These species occur from Mexico (79 spp) to Argentina (10) and UruguayExpand
Systematics of the Octopleura Clade of Miconia (Melastomataceae: Miconieae) in Tropical America
The Octopleura clade of Miconia is a natural group of Neotropical subshrubs and small trees comprising some thirty-three species. These had previously been described in Ossaea and Clidemia , twoExpand
