The Bambusoideae (bamboos), comprising 1,439 described species in 116 genera, is one of 12 subfamilies of Poaceae (grass family), and it is the only major lineage of the family to diversify in forests. In this paper, reprinted in part from the Proceedings of the 9th World Bamboo Congress, a compilation of described bamboo diversity by tribe and subtribe is presented and the basis for the revised classification presented here is discussed, with putative synapomorphies indicated in the text and…

Species from the Himalayas and China appear congeneric on morphological and phylogenetic grounds, and three further species are transferred into Sarocalamus.

Chusquea yungasensis (Bambusoideae, Poaceae): a new species of woody bamboo from South America and the first record of subgenus Rettbergia in Bolivia

A new species of Chusquea subg. Rettbergia is described, illustrated and compared with C. bambusoides. Chusquea yungasensis sp. nov. differs from other species of subg. Rettbergia by its racemose

Two new species of Merostachys (Poaceae: Bambusoideae: Bambuseae) from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest in the states of Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais

Two new species of Merostachys are recognized from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, based on fieldwork in Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo states and morphological analyses in herbaria.

A new genus of temperate woody bamboos (Poaceae, Bambusoideae, Arundinarieae) from a limestone montane area of China

A new genus is proposed to be established, Hsuehochloa, to accommodate A.calcareus and to honour the late Chinese bamboo taxonomist Chi-Ju HsUEh (Ji-Ru Xue).

Two new species of Fargesia (Poaceae, Bambusoideae) from southwestern China

Two new species of Fargesia are described and illustrated, one from Xizang (Tibet) and one from Yunnan, China, which is characterized by its densely white powder, nearly solid internodes, yellow setose sheath scar and culm sheaths, and 4–6 leaves of large size.

Tribo Olyreae (Poaceae: Bambusoideae) na Ilha de Santa Catarina, Brasil

Parodiolyra micrantha is the most common and widely distributed species on the Island, while Reitzia smithii is the species with more restricted distribution, collected again after 34 years in the state of Santa Catarina.

We need to talk about Fargesia: new combinations and a new genus in the temperate Sino-Himalayan bamboos (Poaceae: Bambusoideae)

Morphology, phylogenetics and classification of temperate pachymorph-rhizomed Sino-Himalayan bamboos in Yushania and the current polyphyletic application of Fargesia are discussed and a compromise evolutionary taxonomy approach is recommended for species in western cultivation.

Schizostachyum kuisingii, a new species of bamboo (Poaceae: Bambusoideae) from Peninsular Malaysia

Schizostachyum kuisingii K.M.Wong is a new species of bamboo from Peninsular Malaysia distinguished from closely related species from adjacent areas in Indonesia, by the hairs of the culm internode, glabrescent foliage leaves, leaf ligule form and the presence of two lodicules in the flower.

Schizostachyum cambodianum , a new species of bamboo (Poaceae: Bambusoideae) from Cambodia

S. cambodianum can further be distinguished from its Chinese relatives by forming lax clumps due to its long-necked rhizomes and largely glabrous culm sheaths with only scattered pale hairs.



Studies on the absence of seed set in Bambusa vulgaris

No seed set is reported in the common bamboo, Bambusa vulgaris, so far and the causes for its sterility were studied through investigations on pollen fertility, viability, in vitro and in vivo germination and cytology.

Bamboo and cane resource utilisation and conservation in the Apatani plateau, Arunachal Pradesh, India: implications for management

The north-eastern states of India account for nearly 50 percent of the total bamboo resource of the country. Arunachal Pradesh State has more bamboo and cane diversity than any other state of India.

Studies on Bamboo Distribution in North-eastern Region of India

North-eastern region of India comprising the States of Sikkim, West Bengal (North Bengal Himalaya), Arunachal, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura has over 50% of bamboo species

Floral biology and breeding behavior in the bamboo Dendrocalamus strictus Nees.

Floral biology and breeding behavior were studied in the bamboo Dendrocalamus strictus Nees, indicating that cross pollination by wind is necessary for fertilization and that parthenocarpy and apomixis are not occurring in this species.

The Anatomy of Bamboo Culms

Given its unrivalled position in terms of diversity, distribution and uses, coupled with the vital role it plays in the rural economies of several countries around the world, bamboo has emerged in

Genetic Resources of Bamboos-an Indian Perspective

This paper examines the distribution and diversity of different bamboos taxa in Indian context. The overall bamboo genetic resources scenario in the country is discussed to take stock of existing

Pollen viability and pollen vigor

Investigations were carried out to correlate pollen viability with pollen vigor, assessed on the basis of a fluorochromatic reaction (FCR) test, with the results discussed in the light of available data on the viability and vigor of stressed pollen and of aged seeds.

Estimation of pollen viability in grain sorghum.

In experiments evaluating common germination media substrates, large differences in germination were observed in response to changing concentrations of sucrose, boric acid, and calcium nitrate in agar-based media.

Dry kiln schedules for commercial woods: temperate and tropical.
