Growing knowledge: an overview of Seed Plant diversity in Brazil
An updated inventory of Brazilian seed plants is presented and offers important insights into the country's biodiversity. This work started in 2010, with the publication of the Plants and Fungi…
Review of plant biogeographic studies in Brazil
This paper presents a subdivision of Brazil into phytogeographic domains, and cites studies that have explored the detection of biogeographic units (areas of endemism) and how they are historically related among those domains.
New Brazilian Floristic List Highlights Conservation Challenges
Although the total number of known species in Brazil is one-third lower than previous estimates, the absolute number of endemic vascular plant species is higher than was previously estimated, and the proportion of endemism is the highest in the Neotropics.

Chilean Pitavia more closely related to Oceania and Old World Rutaceae than to Neotropical groups: evidence from two cpDNA non-coding regions, with a new subfamilial classification of the family
Results showed Pitavia as sister to Flindersia and Lunasia, both genera with species scattered through Australia, Philippines, Moluccas, New Guinea and the Malayan region, and phylogenetically far from other Neotropical Rutaceae, as well as a new circumscription of the subfamilies of Rutaceae is presented and discussed.
