A new subfamily classification of the leguminosae based on a taxonomically comprehensive phylogeny
TLDR
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.
Floral ontogeny of Lecointea, Zollernia, Exostyles, and Harleyodendron (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Swartzieae s.l).
TLDR
Floral initiation and development were examined using scanning electron microscopy in Exostyles venusta, Harleyodendron unifoliolatum, Lecointea hatschbachii, and Zollernia ilicifolia, which are ontogenetically more similar to taxa of Sophoreae than to other Swartzieae that have been investigated.
Composition of the Lecointea clade (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae, Swartzieae), a re-evaluation based on combined evidence from morphology and molecular data
TLDR
The Lecointea clade sensu Herendeen, with the additional inclusion of Uribea, is monophyletic in all analyses and not to the Vatairea clade as recently proposed by Pennington & al.
O gênero Casearia Jacq. no Brasil / The genus Casearia Jacq. in Brazil
TLDR
A analise do estado de conservacao das especies, de acordo com os criterios e categorias propostas pela IUCN, apontou cinco espescies como criticamente em perigo (CR), sete emperigo (EM), e quatro vulneraveis (VU).
Taxonomic Revision of the Casearia ulmifolia Complex (Salicaceae)
TLDR
A new species circumscription is presented for C. ulmifolia, C. cotticensis Uittien is reestablished, and one new species,C.
A Revision of the South American Genus Zollernia Wied-Neuw. & Nees (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae, Swartzieae)
TLDR
The genus Zollernia is in need of revision, several species need to be newly circumscribed, and a key to all recognised taxa is required.
Taxonomic Synopsis of Eriosema (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae, Phaseoleae) in Brazil
TLDR
An identification key, taxon descriptions, information about type specimens as well as information on the habitat, phenological and geographical records, together with distribution maps, images of representative species in the field and the main morphological characters are provided to assist in the correct identification of this group of savanna plants.
A Molecular Phylogeny and New Infrageneric Classification of Mucuna Adans. (Leguminosae-Papilionoideae) including Insights from Morphology and Hypotheses about Biogeography
TLDR
It is concluded that the genus Mucuna originated and first diversified in the Paleotropics around 29.2 Ma and achieved a pantropical distribution through multiple long-distance dispersal events, which were facilitated by the occurrence of seeds adapted to oceanic dispersal.
A New Species of Eriosema (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae, Phaseoleae) from Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, with a Secretory Structure Novel to the Genus
TLDR
A survey of the leaflet secretory structures revealed that E. grearii has distinctsecretory structures, referred here as secretory-base trichomes, and reported for the first time for the Phaseoleae tribe.
