Endemic Families of Madagascar. IX. A new littoral forest species of Schizolaena (Sarcolaenaceae)

  title={Endemic Families of Madagascar. IX. A new littoral forest species of Schizolaena (Sarcolaenaceae)},
  author={Porter P. Lowry and David Rabehevitra},
Schizolaena raymondii est decrite ; elle est connue d'une seule parcelle de foret littorale de basse altitude dans le NE de Madagascar, un des ecosystemes malgaches floristiquement les plus riches mais aussi parmi les plus menaces. Une illustration est fournie et la nouvelle espece est comparee aux autres membres du genre. Elle se rapproche en particulier de trois autres especes dont elle partage les feuilles epaisses a apex arrondi a aigu, mais dont elle se distingue par des petales plus longs…

Endemic Families of Madagascar. XIII. New, Restricted Range Species of Eremolaena Baill. and Schizolaena Thouars (Sarcolaenaceae)

Two new species of Schizolaena Thouars are only known from lowland humid forest in far south-eastern Madagascar, in the vicinity of the city of Tolagnaro, and preliminary IUCN conservation assessments are provided.

Endemic families of Madagascar. XII. Resurrection and taxonomic revision of the genera Mediusella (Cavaco) Hutchinson and Xerochlamys Baker (Sarcolaenaceae)

Recent advances in the molecular phylogeny of Sarcolaenaceae indicate that both Mediusella and Xerochlamys are not part of Leptolaena, requiring a generic recircumscription of the entities in the Leptolena-Sarcolaena-Mediuseella-Xero chlamys clade.

Molecular phylogenetics of Sarcolaenaceae (Malvales), Madagascar's largest endemic plant family

This is the first molecular phylogenetic study of Sarcolaenaceae, using broad sampling that encompasses the family's taxonomic and morphological diversity, including 46 species representing all ten genera and sequence data from one nuclear marker and three plastid regions, to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships using Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood.

Conservation of Phylogenetic Diversity in Madagascar’s Largest Endemic Plant Family, Sarcolaenaceae

This study uses Madagascar’s largest endemic plant family, Sarcolaenaceae, as a model to identify areas with high diversity and to explore the potential conservation importance of these areas, suggesting that Phylogenetic Diversity (PD) could be a valuable source of complementary information for determining the contribution of Madagascar's existing network of PAs toward protecting the country's biodiversity.

Biodiversity Conservation and Phylogenetic Systematics

In the midst of a major extinction crisis, the scientifi c community is called to provide criteria, variables and standards for defi ning strategies of biodiversity conservation and monitoring their

Multivariate analyses of morphological characters of Leptolaena Thouars s.l. subgenera Mediusella and Xerochlamys (Sarcolaenaceae)

Principal component analysis of morphological characters was performed and showed that ten entities could be distinguished on the basis of vegetative, floral, and fruit characters, and that they provide a robust basis for proposing a new species-level taxonomic framework.



Endemic families of Madagascar. III. A synoptic revision of Schizolaena (Sarcolaenaceae)
