Abstract We present a multilingual interactive key available online (http://glomera.linnaeus.naturalis.nl) that can be used on any web browser without the need for installing additional software. The key includes 169 species of Glomera, a genus within the necklace orchids (Coelogyninae) not yet comprehensively treated in any recent field guide or web-based survey. With this key, plants can be identified using a combination of vegetative and floristic characters in addition to distribution and…

Antimicrobial Activity of Necklace Orchids is Phylogenetically Clustered and can be Predicted With a Biological Response Method
Comparative bioprospecting for a group of wild orchids using EBDCS organ targeted and biological response methods found the biological response classification method is a more effective tool in finding hot nodes amongst clades of species with high medicinal potential.


Floral variability in selected species of the genus Coelogyne Lindl., Orchidaceae
Correlations of the lip characters in the Coelogyne flower proved a synchronised development of this organ, and a numerical taxonomy approach permitted to select in an ordination space some extreme species, based on a description of lip morphology.
Molecular phylogeny of Coelogyne (Epidendroideae; Orchidaceae) based on plastid RFLPS, matK, and nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences: evidence for polyphyly.
Compared with Coelogyninae, Coelogyne is polyphyletic, with species falling into at least two well-supported clades, and a reorganization of the genus by including Neogyna and Pholidota and removing several species is proposed.
Testing the Value of Six Taxonomic Groups as Biodiversity Indicators at a Local Scale
The principle of complementarity must be integrated into the methodology of evaluating an indicator if the group of woody plants prove an adequate biodiversity indicator for other Mediterranean areas as well, this will be important because it will facilitate conservation-related decisions for the entire Mediterranean region.
Ecology of orchids in urban bushland reserves – can orchids be used as indicators of vegetation condition?
This study provides insights into orchid ecology by examining pollination rates, mycorrhizal relationships and field plant establishment and aims to determine whether orchids can be successfully utilized as indicators of vegetation condition.
Taxonomy and Biogeography without frontiers – WhatsApp, Facebook and smartphone digital photography let citizen scientists in more remote localities step out of the dark
New distribution and habitat data for diving beetles of Bali island, Indonesia, are presented as a proof of concept to enable taxonomic efforts without frontiers and at the same time adequate benefit sharing measures.
Field Photography and the Democratization of Arthropod Taxonomy
Now that any naturalist can go out and make a digital insect collection, enlist the aid of an online community to identify specimens, and share images and associated data with the world, arthropod taxonomy is becoming democratized.
Alpine Flora
The present book may advantageously be used with Gremli's “Flora fur die Schweiz,” and will be a material help to those botanists who have not previously visited the European Alpine ranges.
The state and conservation of Southeast Asian biodiversity
Southeast Asia is a region of conservation concern due to heavy losses of its native habitats. In this overview, we highlight the conservation importance of Southeast Asia by comparing its degree of
Biodiversity hotspots for conservation priorities
A ‘silver bullet’ strategy on the part of conservation planners, focusing on ‘biodiversity hotspots’ where exceptional concentrations of endemic species are undergoing exceptional loss of habitat, is proposed.
On the Use of Surrogate Species in Conservation Biology
Surrogate species need to be used with greater care if they are to remain useful in conservation biology and both the goals and criteria of different surrogate classes differ substantially, indicating they should not be conflated.
