Denscantia calcicola (Rubiaceae), a New Species from Limestone Outcrops in the Brazilian Caatinga
The first new species of Denscantia from the caatinga biome is described and illustrated, easily distinguished by its plicate-nerved and scabrous leaves, axillary inflorescences with 7–15 glomerules, calyx tube 0.85–1.2 mm long and pollen grains with only one endocingulum. Expand
Carajasia (Rubiaceae), a new and endangered genus from Carajás mountain range, Pará, Brazil
A molecular phylogenetic study was carried out using ITS and ETS sequences to determine the phylogenetic position of the new genus within the Spermacoce clade, demonstrating that Carajasia is sister to Galianthe with moderate to high support and Schwendenera form a weakly supported clade with Schwendenersa.

Systematics, taxonomy and floristics of Brazilian Rubiaceae: an overview about the current status and future challenges
The present work is to offer an overall view of the most recent family classification with emphasis on the genera of Rubiaceae occurring in Brazil, and to indicate particular taxa that are still in need of phylogenetic and taxonomic studies. Expand
The phylogenetic utility of chloroplast and nuclear DNA markers and the phylogeny of the Rubiaceae tribe Spermacoceae.
IT was, despite often raised cautions of its utility at higher taxonomic levels, shown to provide the highest number of parsimony informative characters, and in partitioned Bayesian analyses it yielded the fewest trees in the 95% credible set. Expand
