With the aim of correlating the pericarp structure with current phylogenies of Myrteae, this study describes the ontogeny in five species included in five out of the six South American clades of the tribe. In these taxa, the outer and inner ovarian epidermis gives rise to the exocarp and the endocarp, respectively, both with 1 layer. In the mesocarp, derived from the ovarian mesophyll, secretory cavities are arranged into a circle just below the exocarp and near the endocarp in Campomanesia…

A Taxonomic Revision of the Lathberry Clade of Eugenia (Myrtaceae)

Abstract The Lathberry Clade includes seven species of Eugenia sect. Umbellatae (Myrtaceae) distributed from Puerto Rico through the Lesser Antilles. Members of the Lathberry Clade are trees and

Diversity, Phylogeny and Evolution of the rapidly evolving genus Psidium L. (Myrtaceae, Myrteae).

Research on prefoliation, colleters, leaf anatomy, leaf physiology, staminal development, placentation, and germination associated to the anatomy of the opercular plug is desirable, and characters associated to diversification within Psidium are discussed.

Floral uniformity through evolutionary time in a species-rich tree lineage.

Analysis of floral disparity in the environmental and phylogenetic context of Myrcia (Myrtaceae), one of the most diverse and abundant tree genera in Neotropical biomes, shows that floral form and function may be conserved over large evolutionary time scales even in environments full of opportunities for ecological interactions and niche specialisation.



Development and evolution of the gynoecium in Myrteae (Myrtaceae)

The morphological characters of the South American Myrteae here analysed provided an overview of the evolution of gynoecium – with cauline or carpellate placenta – and of colleters, as well as synapomorphies for the clades Plinia + Myrcia and Eugenia’s Pimenta.

Suprageneric phylogenetics of Myrteae, the generically richest tribe in Myrtaceae (Myrtales)

To clarify relationships within the predominantly Neotropical and exclusively fleshy-fruited Myrteae (49 genera and c. 2,500 species), we provide a phylogenetic hypothesis for evolutionary

Phylogenetic patterns in the fleshy-fruited Myrtaceae – preliminary molecular evidence

A phylogenetic study of selected fleshy-fruited genera of the Myrtaceae was conducted using sequences from the ITS region of nuclear DNA and the psbA-trnH region of plastid DNA, revealing 40 shortest trees, all of which resolve Myrteae (excluding the Acmena group) as monophyletic.

Phylogenetic reconstruction in Myrtaceae using matK, with particular reference to the position of Psiloxylon and Heteropyxis

Parsimony analysis of matK sequence data for representatives of Myrtaceae s.1. provides evidence of its potential in phylogenetic inference in this family. Psiloxylon and Heteropyxis comprise a

Myrtaceae revisited: a reassessment of infrafamilial groups.

Two separate fleshy-fruited clades, the Acmena and Myrtoid groups, are identified, as are the Eucalypt and Tristania groups, and Psiloxylon and Heteropyxis are the first lineages to diverge in both analyses.

Evolution of exceptional species richness among lineages of fleshy-fruited Myrtaceae.

Fleshy fruits have evolved independently in Syzygieae and Myrteae, and this is accompanied by exceptional diversification rate shifts in both instances, suggesting that the evolution of fleshy fruits is a key innovation for rainforest Myrtaceae.

Relationships within Myrtaceae sensu lato based on a matK phylogeny

An estimate of the phylogeny of the Myrtaceae sensu lato is produced with little basal resolution but a number of well-supported clades containing most of the genera, including the small genera Psiloxylon and Heteropyxis, which is more strongly supported.

The development of the fruits and seeds of campomanesia (Myrtaceae)

It is shown here that the structure, which has been taken for the “seed coat,” is actually the locular wall, which serves as a false seed coat in Campomanesia.

Estudo anatômico do crescimento do fruto em Acca sellowiana Berg.

The ripee fruit has a peripheral region of firm consistence and astringent taste, and a soft sweet core, and is featured as the objective of this study.

Histological Study of the Developing Fruit of the Sour Cherry

The gross development of the fruit of the sour cherry from 18 days before full bloom to fruit ripening is pictured and the histological changes during the pre-bloom stage, stage I (rapid development for 20 days following full bloom), stage II (retarded development for 16 days), and stage III (rapids development for 21 days to Fruit ripening).
