The Potencial of Campomanesia phaea O. Berg Landrum (Cambuci) as Natural Source of Vitamin C

Fruit is an essential part of a healthy diet preventing risks. This protective action has been attributed mainly to its bioactive compounds, which have antioxidant properties. Ascorbic acid, also

Polinização e dispersão de sementes em Myrtaceae do Brasil

This revision aimed to summarize the knowledge of the reproductive ecology of Brazilian Myrtaceae, bringing together information about the pollinators and seed dispersers of a great number of species.

Physicochemical variability of cambuci fruit (Campomanesia phaea) from the same orchard, from different locations and at different ripening stages.

Genetic and soil composition studies are needed to assess the reasons for the differences found among fruit from the same location, as well as the variability among fruit harvested in four localities.

Molecular characterization and population structure study of cambuci: strategy for conservation and genetic improvement.

The results showed the existence of some level of genetic diversity among the cambuci accessions that could be exploited for the genetic improvement of the species, and the lack of conservation activities showed the importance of further collection to cover more areas and more genetic variability within the species.

Diversity of flower visiting bees of Eugenia uniflora L. (Myrtaceae) in fragments of Atlantic Forest in South Brazil

Eugenia uniflora is a food source for exotic and native bees and possibly contributes to the conservation of these bees in forest fragments and in return, the bees probably act in maintaining this plant native of the Atlantic Forest.

Ellagic Acid Glucosides Detected By Lc-Ms In Ethanolic Branches And Fruit Extracts Of Eugenia Pisiformis Cambess . ( Myrtaceae )

In Brazil, species Eugenia pisiformis Cambess (Myrtaceae) occurs in the Atlantic Forest, showing occurrence records in the states of Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Maranhão and Bahia. This species

Ethnobotany of rural people from the boundaries of Carlos Botelho State Park , São Paulo , Brazil

(Ethnobotany of rural people from the boundaries of Carlos Botelho State Park, São Paulo, Brazil). In this article we describe and analyze the use of plant resources in a region nearby a conservation

Pollination of Campomanesia phaea (Myrtaceae) by night-active bees: a new nocturnal pollination system mediated by floral scent.

This study describes the first scent-mediated pollination system between a plant and its nocturnal bee pollinators of Campomanesia phaea (Myrtaceae), popularly named cambuci, which has several floral traits that do not allow classification into otherNocturnal pollination syndromes (e.g. pollinator attraction already before sunrise).

Biometric characterization and tetrazolium test in Campomanesia phaea O. Berg. Landrum seeds

It was concluded that the cambuci seeds presented biometric differences between the two collection periods, because of the different water contents, and the tetrazolium test was established.

Subtropical region cambuci accessions: characterization and jam processing potential

The consumption of the cambuci in nature is limited due to the strong acidity and astringency of its fruits, and in view of the various accesses that can currently be cultivated, it is of great



Distribution patterns and conservation of eastern Brazilian coastal forest tree species

The distributions of 127 tree species, each with at least part of their range in the moist coastal forest of eastern Brazil, are analyzed. Of these, 53.5% are endemic to the coastal forest, 11.8%
