A taxonomic account of the palm genus Livistona is presented. [] Key Result Becc., L. rotundifolia var. mindorensis (Becc.) Becc. and L. robinsoniana Becc. placed as synonyms; L. fengkaiensis X.W.Wei & M.Y.Xiao is placed under L. speciosa Kurz; Livistona chinensis var. subglobosa (Hassk.) Becc. is placed under L. chinensis (Jacq.) R.Br. ex Mart.; Livistona tonkinensis Magalon is placed under L. saribus (Lour.) Merr. ex A.Chev.; and Livistona kimberleyana A.N.Rodd is placed under L. lorophylla Becc. A neotype…

Livistona leichhardtii is the correct name for Livistona lorophylla (Arecaceae)

Examination of a number of names in synonymy has shown that the identity and status of the name L. leichhardtii F.Muell.

First record of fossil Trachycarpeae in Africa: three new species of Palmoxylon from the Oligocene (Rupelian) Gebel Qatrani Formation, Fayum, Egypt

Based on a survey of the fossil wood flora of Gebel Qatrani (Rupelian, Fayum, Egypt), three new species of palm stem are described: Palmoxylon araneus Nour-El-Deen, El-Saadawi & Thomas sp. nov.,

Morpho-anatomical characterization of diaspores and seedlings of Livistona rotundifolia

The results of this study will contribute to the overall biology of L. rotundifolia, as well as to seedling production and species identification, subsidizing regeneration and conservation studies.

Not an ancient relic: the endemic Livistona palms of arid central Australia could have been introduced by humans

The results rule out the ancient relic hypothesis for the origin of L. mariae, which suggested that the disjunction between the northern populations could have originated by intermittent colonization along an ancient river that has been drowned repeatedly by marine transgression.

Beyond Genera Palmarum: progress and prospects in palm systematics

It is concluded that palm systematic knowledge is far from complete and that tools, such as GP2, only stimulate further scientific research and discovery, so many aspects of the palm Tree of Life still remain scarcely known.

Development of microsatellite markers for the northern Australian endemic fan palm Livistona rigida (Arecaceae), with cross-amplification in the five related species

The microsatellite markers described here will be useful for investigating the speciation and range formation processes of the recent radiation of the Livistona genus in Australia, and the results obtained from them will provide crucial information for conservation of Australian Livismona species.

The palm family (Arecaceae): a microcosm of sexual system evolution

The amazing diversity of sexual expression in palms is highlighted with a view to proposing scenarios to explain the evolution of this character, drawing on the numerous advances that have been made over the last 20 years in palm systematics, ecology, developmental biology, phylogenetics and genomics.

Phytoconstituents, Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Activities of Livistona chinensis (Jacquin), Saribus rotundifolius (Lam.) Blume and Areca catechu Linnaeus Nuts

The notable antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of the palm extracts are a function of their inherent bioactive constituents and a potential source of medicinally useful compounds.

PalmTraits 1.0, a species-level functional trait database of palms worldwide

A global species-level compilation of key functional traits for palms (Arecaceae), a plant family with keystone importance in tropical and subtropical ecosystems, is presented.



Studies in the genus Livistona (Coryphoideae: Arecaceae)

The distribution of species in otherwise floristically unrelated regions suggests that the genus is 'ancient', and that initial radiation may have occurred prior to tectonic events that isolated the landmasses on which ancestral species occurred.

A dwarf Livistona (Palmae) from Borneo

A new palm species, Livistona exigua, is described from Borneo (Brunei), the first dwarf species known in the genus, which is a genus of fan palms of about 28 species predominantly SE.

The transfer of Livistona Kingiana (Palmae) to Pholidocarpus

Summary. On the basis of floral and vegetative characters Ridley's inclusion of the Malayan species Livistona kingiana Becc. in Pholidocarpus is shown to be correct. Livistona kingiana Becc. and

A taxonomic revision of the Australian species of the palm genus Livistona is presented, with a key to the species.

A new phylogenetic classification of the palm family

Summary. An outline of a new phylogenetic classification of the palm family ( Arecaceae , syn. Palmae ) is publishedwith the aim of validating new names of suprageneric taxa prior to the publication

Distribution and population structure of the vulnerable riparian palm Livistona lanuginosa A.N.Rodd (Arecaceae) in the Burdekin River catchment, north Queensland

This study investigated the distribution and population structure of Livistona lanuginosa, a vulnerable palm that is mainly restricted to riparian areas in the Burdekin River catchment, indicating that the overall population size is limited.
