Molecular Phylogeny of Stryphnodendron (Mimosoideae, Leguminosae) and Generic Delimitations in the Piptadenia Group
Premise of research. Despite recent progress on the systematics of the Leguminosae, the relationships between some genera, as well as their circumscriptions, remain uncertain. Here we investigate theExpand
Insect galls from Serra Geral, Caetité, BA, Brazil
We inventoried and characterized the kinds of gall, gall-inducing insects and host plants from Serra Geral between August 2013 and July 2014. Two phytophysiognomies, cerrado sensu stricto andExpand

Inventories of insect galls in gallery forests in Northeastern Brazil have been quite infrequent, and the richness of gall-inducing insects in that vegetation type has been little unknown. ToExpand
Are Fabaceae the principal super-hosts of galls in Brazil?
We surveyed 58 scientific articles published between 1987 and 2018 to evaluate the representative nature of the Fabaceae as hosts of insect galls in Brazil, and to gain a better understanding of theExpand
