Two new species of Columnea belonging to section Collandra (Gesneriaceae) from the “cordillera Occidental” in the Colombian Andes are described and illustrated. Columnea caudata is distributed along the Biogeographical Choco in the Departments of Antioquia, Choco, Risaralda, and Valle del Cauca, whereas Columnea megafolia is restricted to Antioquia, and probably is an endemic species of the National Natural Park Las Orquideas.

Is There a Latitudinal Gradient in the Importance of Biotic Interactions
TLDR
The hypothesis that biotic interactions are more important in the tropics is supported, but additional research is needed on latitudinal comparisons of rates of molecular evolution for genes involved inBiotic interactions, estimates of gradients in interaction strength, and phylogenetic comparisons of the traits that med...
