Molecular Phylogenetics of Galeandra (Orchidaceae: Catasetinae) Based on Plastid and Nuclear DNA Sequences
The phylogenetic relationships among species of Galeandra inferred from nucleotide sequences from three plastid and two nuclear DNA regions found that the epiphytic species G. devoniana is sister to the remainder of the genus, and that the other species form two groups, one consisting of epip hytic species and the other composed of terrestrial species.
A molecular phylogeny of Raddia and its allies within the tribe Olyreae (Poaceae, Bambusoideae) based on noncoding plastid and nuclear spacers.
The plastid spacer trnD-trnT and the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer were sequenced for 37 samples of herbaceous bamboos, including all Raddia species and allied genera, as well as two members of the woody bamboOS, in order to examine their relationships.
Phylogenetic relationships of Echinolaena and Ichnanthus within Panicoideae (Poaceae) reveal two new genera of tropical grasses.
The multiple loci analyses indicated that Echinolaena and Ichnanthus are polyphyletic in their current circumscriptions, with species in four distinct lineages within subtribe Paspalinae, each one characterized by a single type of rachilla appendage.
Eremitis afimbriata and E. magnifica (Poaceae, Bambusoideae, Olyreae): two remarkable new species from Brazil and a first record of blue iridescence in bamboo leaves
Two new species belonging to the herbaceous bamboo genus Eremitis (Poaceae, Bambusoideae) are herein described as E. afimbriata and E. magnifica, restricted to semi-deciduous seasonal forests and considered critically endangered according to the IUCN criteria.
Eremitis linearifolia and E. robusta (Poaceae, Bambusoideae, Olyreae): two new species of herbaceous bamboos from Brazil first collected over 30 years ago
Two new species of the herbaceous bamboos genus Eremitis are described and illustrated, occurring in small populations in the Atlantic Rain Forest vegetation, from the states of Espirito Santo and Bahia, Brazil.
A new species of Campomanesia (Myrtaceae) from Bahia, Brazil, and its relationships with the C. xanthocarpa complex
Results of studies with multiple approaches involving a species complex which includes Campomanesia xanthocarpa (Myrtaceae) indicate that specimens collected in Morro do Chapeu, the northern region
Parianella (Poaceae, Bambusoideae): morphological and biogeographical information reveals a new genus of herbaceous bamboos from Brazil
A new genus is described, Parianella, in order to accommodate two species found in the Atlantic Rain Forest of southern Bahia, Brazil that do not belong to Pariana, a genus of herbaceous bamboos (tribe Olyreae, Poaceae) where they were previously classified.
A new species of Eremitis (Poaceae, Bambusoideae) from Rio Doce State Park, Minas Gerais, Brazil, marks the furthest inland distribution of the genus
The bamboo genus Eremitis is one of the three genera of Parianinae, a subtribe within tribe Olyreae (Poaceae, Bambusoideae). As now understood, Eremitis includes six described species. While
Chusquea clemirae (Bambusoideae, Poaceae): A New Woody Bamboo from the Montane Atlantic Rainforest of Bahia State, Brazil
A new species of Chusquea Kunth found exclusively in a montane Atlantic Rainforest area in southern Bahia (the Serra Bonita Private Natural Heritage Reserve), and it has a restricted occurrence within the reserve.
Tibouchina bracteolata and T. comosa (Melastomataceae, Melastomeae): Two New Species to the Chapada Diamantina, Bahia, Brazil
Two new species of Tibouchina, tribe Melastomeae (Melastomataceae), are described, illustrated and compared with their congeners, and can be distinguished by vegetative and floral characters, as well as by phytogeographic aspects.
