Anaphyllopsis: A New Neotropical Genus of Araceae-Lasieae

  title={Anaphyllopsis: A New Neotropical Genus of Araceae-Lasieae},
  author={Alistair Hay},
During the course of revising the spe­ cies of Cyrtosperma in the Far East, it became necessary to review generic limits in the tribe Lasieae sensu Engler ( 1911 ) as amended by Bogner ( 1973 ). It has become apparent that the pan tropical Cyrtosperma circumscribed by Engler (loc. cit.) is heterogeneous. Three species of Cyrtosperma have been recognized for the New World. Two of these belong in extant genera--C. wurdackii Bunting (Urospatba) and C. spruceanum (Schott) Engler (Dra­ contium). The…

Ecology and life forms of Araceae
The most interesting aspect of the family's ecology is the diversity of adaptive life forms, which range from submerged to free-floating, and emergent aquatics to terrestrial plants and to epilithic or epiphytic forms which may be true epipHYtes or hemiepiphyts (growing on trees but rooted in soil).
A revision of the small genus Zomicarpa Schott
SummaryThe endemic Brazilian genus Zomicarpa Schott traditionally comprised three species occurring in north-eastern Brazil. These species were critically revised, based on recent collections. Only
Systematic embryology of the Araceae
Embryological data of systematic significance to the family Araceae are reviewed and analyzed, with special attention given to the determination of character-state polarities. Character-states
Durianology, discovery, and saltation — the evolution of aroids
A case is made that the Durian Theory involved in part the advanced, holistic cognitive mode of insight, and it is proposed that insight problem-solving may overcome some of the limitations and distortions of dis-integrative character analysis, and lead to discovery of novel morphological relations and global pattern recognition.
Distribution of Araceae and the Diversity of Life Forms
This paper discusses the family Araceae, emphasizing its worldwide distribution and the diversity of morphological and ecological characteristics of the family that have enabled it to reach such a

A review is given of the various botanical evidences for changes in vegetation cover of the Neotropics during the Pleistocene dry periods to re-evaluate some of their earlier theories of speciation and biological diversity in the lowland tropics.
