Seeds from species of Canarium L. (Burseraceae) have been recommended as a potential nut crop for global trade that, if adopted, would be the first ‘new’ nut commodity since the introduction of the Macadamia nut in the early 20th century.

Figures and Tables from this paper

A revision of Canarium L. (Burseraceae) in Madagascar
TLDR
The number of accepted species in the genus Canarium is increased by 33% worldwide and Madagascar is established as a primary center of diversity for the genus. Expand
Phylogeny of Acronychia (Rutaceae) and First Insights into Its Historical Biogeography and the Evolution of Fruit Characters
TLDR
The results indicate that the South-East Asian genus Maclurodendron is nested phylogenetically within Acronychia and must be synonymized to render AcronYchia monophyletic. Expand
Fossil fruits of Canarium (Burseraceae) from Eastern Asia and their implications for phytogeographical history
The genus Canarium contains approximately 78 species distributed in the Old World tropics and subtropics. Canarium is characterized by a distinctive drupaceous fruit with a trilocular endocarpExpand
A molecular phylogeny of Acronychia, Euodia, Melicope and relatives (Rutaceae) reveals polyphyletic genera and key innovations for species richness.
TLDR
The results based on five plastid and nuclear markers have revealed that Acronychia, Euodia and Melicope are each not monophyletic in their current circumscriptions and that several small genera mainly from Australia and New Caledonia need to be merged with one of the three genera to ensure monophyly at the generic level. Expand
Diversification in species complexes: tests of species origin and delimitation in the Bursera simaruba clade of tropical trees (Burseraceae).
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Bursera simaruba species complex of neotropical trees is reconstructed to test the notion that four "satellite" species originated from populations of the most widely distributed member of the genus, B.Simaruba, and it is recovered as a single valid species, implying that it maintains genetic cohesion among distant populations throughout its vast range. Expand
Centros de origen, domesticación y diversidad genética de la ciruela mexicana, Spondias purpurea (Anacardiaceae)
TLDR
The aim of this study was to identify the centers of origin, domestication and genetic diversity of Spondias purpurea in Mesoamerica through phylogeographic analyses and suggest the lack of differentiation between the lineages may be due to hybridization between species. Expand
Phylogeography of Spiraea alpina (Rosaceae) in the Qinghai–Tibetan Plateau inferred from chloroplast DNA sequence variations
TLDR
The authors' phylogeographic analyses suggest that this alpine shrub survived in multiple refugia during the Last Glacial Maximum and that earlier glaciations may have trigged deep intraspecific divergences. Expand
A new eriophyid mite species (Acari, Eriophyidae) in the genus Tegonotus Nalepa infesting Chinese white olive, Canarium album, in Fujian Province, southeastern China
TLDR
A new mite species belonging to the genus Tegonotus Nalepa, which causes discoloured buds, curled leaf edges and necrosis on its host plant, Canarium album (Lour.) DC. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Hawaiian Rutaceae (Melicope, Platydesma and Zanthoxylum) and their different colonization patterns
TLDR
A detailed molecular phylogenetic analysis of the Hawaiian species of this genus and compare the results with the other genera of Hawaiian Rutaceae, Platydesma and Zanthoxylum shows that there were two colonization events to the Hawaiian Islands, that Hawaiian Rut Families have an Asian, Australian or Pacific origin and that there was two independent colonization events of Hawaiian Melicope lineages to the Marquesas Islands. Expand
The biogeographic origin of a radiation of trees in Madagascar: implications for the assembly of a tropical forest biome
TLDR
The analyses support a late Miocene origin for Malagasy Canarium, probably by long distance dispersal from Southeast Asia, and postulate that the relatively recent establishment and radiation of Canarium in Madagascar may have been facilitated by the highly stochastic climates associated with these forest ecosystems.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Commiphora (Burseraceae) yields insight on the evolution and historical biogeography of an "impossible" genus.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of Commiphora, a predominantly tropical African, arid-adapted tree genus, is presented in order to test the monophyly of its taxonomic sections and identify clades that will help direct future study of this species-rich and geographically widespread taxon. Expand
Establishing the genetic relationships between the wild and cultivated olives using a nuclear intron from nitrate reductase (nia-i3)
TLDR
The amplification by polymerase chain reaction and sequencing of the third nuclear intron of the nitrate reductase gene suggest that this gene could be duplicated in these two taxa after its divergence from the remaining Oleaceae. Expand
Differential conservation of two species ofCanarium (burseraceae) among the Babatana and Ririo of Lauru (Choiseul), Solomon Islands
Two species,Canarium salomonense B. L. Burtt andC. indicum L. were formerly used by Solomon Islands cultures as principal sources of food (seeds), resin, and wood as well as a variety of ceremonialExpand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Tree‐of‐Heaven Family (Simaroubaceae) Based on Chloroplast and Nuclear Markers
TLDR
Comparisons among Bayesian analyses reveal that the most complex method of partitioning best explains the data under a Bayes factor criterion, suggesting that the phylogenetic signal is robust and resistant to model misspecification. Expand
Molecular genetic evidence for interspecific hybridization among endemic Hispaniolan Bursera (Burseraceae).
TLDR
First molecular genetic evidence for both unidirectional and reciprocal interspecific hybridization within Bursera is reported, supporting the hybrid origin of three endemic Hispaniolan species. Expand
The phylogenetic history and biogeography of the frankincense and myrrh family (Burseraceae) based on nuclear and chloroplast sequence data.
TLDR
Molecular phylogenies of an eudicotyledon family previously hypothesized to have a Gondwanan origin, the Burseraceae, are used to test this and other alternative biogeographical hypotheses in light of recalibrated geological events. Expand
Phylogenetic utility of a nuclear intron from nitrate reductase for the study of closely related plant species.
TLDR
This paper describes one target of this effort, the nitrate reductase (NIA) gene, which is a promising candidate for phylogenetic reconstruction, and sets out to use EPIC to find longer nuclear introns that could be amplified from a diversity of plants and could provide phylogenetic information at low taxonomic levels. Expand
Domestication and the distribution of genetic variation in wild and cultivated populations of the Mesoamerican fruit tree Spondias purpurea L. (Anacardiaceae)
TLDR
Levels of genetic variation in cultivated S. purpurea populations are significantly less than variation found in wild populations, although the amount of diversity varies in different agricultural habitats, and results suggest that S. Purpurea was domesticated in two distinct regions within Mesoamerica. Expand
Phylogenetics and reticulate evolution in Pistacia (Anacardiaceae).
TLDR
The combined analysis of three plastid DNA data sets resolved Pistacia species into three major clades, within which only a few subclades were supported, and Pistacia was shown to be monophyletic in all three analyses. Expand
Enzyme polymorphisms in Canarium
TLDR
The complexity of isozyme phenotypes indicates that interspecific hybridization and polyploidy might have played a major role in the evolution of Canarium species. Expand
