A new subfamily classification of the leguminosae based on a taxonomically comprehensive phylogeny
The classification of the legume family proposed here addresses the long-known non-monophyly of the traditionally recognised subfamily Caesalpinioideae, by recognising six robustly supported monophyletic subfamilies and reflects the phylogenetic structure that is consistently resolved.
Legume phylogeny and classification in the 21st century: Progress, prospects and lessons for other species-rich clades
This work examines how the legume systematic research community might join forces to produce a comprehensive phylogenetic estimate for the Leguminosae, and examines how morphology can be incorporated into legume phylogeny to address issues in comparative biology and classification.
A New Species of Collaea (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Phaseoleae: Diodeinae) from Brazil
- R. Fortunato
During monographic work on the Galactia Collaea complex the new species Collaea cipoensis has been identified and is presently known only from the type locality in Serra do Cip6, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Antimicrobial activity in methanolic extracts of several plant species from northern Argentina.

Thirty-nine native plant species were collected from the provinces of Chaco and Formosa, in northern Argentina, and were screened for antimicrobial activity, finding that some extracts were able to reduce the initial number of viable counts by at least one order of magnitude in 10 hours, indicating the possible presence of bactericidal components.
A new antitubercular mulinane diterpenoid from Azorella madreporica Clos.
Bioactivity-guided fractionation of the petroleum ether extract of Azorella madreporica Clos has led to the isolation of the novel, antitubercular mulinane diterpenoid 1. The structure has been…
Seed components and taxonomy of some Acacia species
Analysis of flavonoid glycosides with potential medicinal properties on Bauhinia uruguayensis and Bauhinia forficata subspecies pruinosa.
One of these compounds, quercitrin-3-rhamnoside may confer anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties to BU extracts, and is considered chemotaxonomic markers and responsible for antioxidant activity.
Phenotypic variation in arid and semi-arid zones of southern South America: the case of Senna series Aphyllae (Fabaceae, Caesalpinioideae)
The paper was presented at the 43rd Congress of the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Cientificas y Tecnicas in Cordoba with a theme of “Ciencias Exactas Fisicas y Naturales: Investigación cientifica y Tecnologico Conicet”.
Karyotype studies in Mimosa (Mimosoideae, Leguminosae) from Southern South America and ecological and taxonomic relationships
The relationship between total chromosome length and climatic parameters showed that diploid species of marginal areas of distribution have a larger chromosome size, and that this could be related with mechanisms of ecologi- cal adaptation.
Phylogenetic relationships among southern South American species of Camptosema, Galactia and Collaea (Diocleinae: Papilionoideae: Leguminosae) on the basis of molecular and morphological data
Individual and combined phylogenetic analyses of morphology, ITS and trnL-F were conducted to examine the position of these species as well as to explore their relationship with Galactia and Collaea species in southern South America.
