A molecular phylogeny and classification of Bignoniaceae.
Parsimony inference suggests that the family originated in the neotropics, with at least five dispersal events leading to the Old World representatives.
Taxonomic Revisions in the Polyphyletic Genus Tabebuia s. l. (Bignoniaceae)
Taxonomic revisions are made here by resurrecting two genera to contain segregate clades of Tabebuia by publishing the following new combinations: Handroanthus Mattos and Roseodendron Miranda.
Evolution of a Charismatic Neotropical Clade: Molecular Phylogeny of Tabebuia s. l., Crescentieae, and Allied Genera (Bignoniaceae)
The phylogeny of Tabebuia presented here corresponds to the species groups established by Gentry, while at the same time highlighting the need for taxonomic revisions.
Mangrove Ecosystem Service Values and Methodological Approaches to Valuation: Where Do We Stand?
Mangroves, seagrass meadows, and salt marshes, collectively termed "Blue Forests," are counted among the most valuable and productive coastal ecosystems on the planet. A recent literature review of
Climate Change Will Re-draw the Map for Marine Megafauna and the People Who Depend on Them
Climate change is expected to dramatically alter the distribution of many marine megafauna, impacting the people and economies that depend upon them. We build on the recent literature by developing a
Disrupting data sharing for a healthier ocean
A combinatorial machine is proposed that embodies both technological and social networking solutions to aggregate ocean data and to allow researchers to discover, navigate, and download data as well as to connect researchers and data users while providing an open-sourced backend for new data tools.
Inhibition of growth and synchronised cell division in the shoot apex in relation to flowering in Silene
When plants of Silene coeli-rosa (L.) Godron were induced by seven long days, then exposed to darkness for 48 h before being returned to short days, they went on to initiate flowers with a delay of about 2 d, showing that it is not essential for flowering.
Phylogeny and Systematics of Crescentieae (Bignoniaceae), a Neotropical Clade of Cauliflorous and Bat-Pollinated Trees
Abstract The tribe Crescentieae includes Amphitecna (21 species), Crescentia (six species), and Parmentiera (10 species), three genera of understory trees with a center of diversity in Central
This paper is dedicated to the memory of Al Gentry, Bignoni-aceae scholar; without his tremendous energy and insights, this study would not have been possible. Bignoniaceae are predominantly a
