Geographical distribution of Eupatorieae (Asteraceae) in South-eastern and South Brazilian Mountain Ranges

  author={Adriana M. Almeida and Paulo In{\'a}cio Prado and Thomas Michael Lewinsohn},
  journal={Plant Ecology},
This study deals with the geographical distribution of Eupatorieae species in South-eastern and Southern Brazilian mountain ranges, with special emphasis on the Mantiqueira range (Serra da Mantiqueira). In the Mantiqueira range, five localities were sampled for two years during the flowering period of the plants. Species composition in the Mantiqueira localities was then compared to data from a central range (the Espinhaço) and a southern coastal range. Cluster and ordination analyses showed… Expand

The Asteraceae flora of the Serra do Ibitipoca: analyses of its diversity and distribution compared with selected areas in Brazilian mountain ranges
A checklist for the Asteraceae of the Parque Estadual do Ibitipoca is presented, with an analysis of the family's geographic distribution in 10 Brazilian montane rocky fields (campos rupestres andExpand
Brazilian Páramos IV. Phytogeography of the campos de altitude
Many taxa currently living at the summits of the south-east Brazilian Highlands trace their ancestry to temperate latitudes, point to climatically driven allopatry as a principal mechanism for speciation. Expand
Origins and recent radiation of Brazilian Eupatorieae (Asteraceae) in the eastern Cerrado and Atlantic Forest.
A novel clade was found that includes 75% of the genera endemic to Brazil (Cerrado-Atlantic Forest Eupatorieae, "CAFE" clade), and incongruities between the molecular phylogenetic results and the current classification of the tribe are attributed to convergent evolution of morphological characters traditionally used in the classification.

Diversity, Endemism, and Evolutionary History of Montane Biotas Outside the Andean Region
Mountain ranges are important centers of biodiversity around the world. This high diversity is the result of the presence of different soil types and underlying bedrock, a variety of micro-climaticExpand

Areas of endemism in the Espinhaco Range in Minas Gerais, Brazil
There is a strong correlation between species richness and collector effort, revealing which areas are in need of further field inventories, and six major areas of endemism are identified. Expand
Areas of endemism in the Espinhaço Range in Minas Gerais, Brazil
The Espinhaço Range, a mountain chain located in the Brazilian states of Minas Gerais and Bahia, contains one of the richest floras in Brazil, with a high frequency of endemic species. Since 2005 itExpand
A new species of Cinclodes from the Espinhaço Range, southeastern Brazil: insights into the biogeographical history of the South American highlands
The new species discovered at high elevation in the southern portion of the Espinhaco Range, in the state of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil is described and it is suggested it meets the criteria of the IUCN Red List category of Endangered. Expand
A contribution to the phytogeography of Brazilian campos: an analysis based on Poaceae
The current results suggest that the traditional classification of the Southern American grasslands might require some modification in order to be broadly applicable in the Brazilian context. Expand
Is there environmental differentiation in the Quercus-dominated forests of west-central Mexico?
The most important environmental variable explaining the observed patterns of floristic composition is altitude, although partial canonical correspondence analysis suggests that micro-habitat heterogeneity (catena position and canopy maturity) was most significant. Expand


Evolution of the Afroalpine Flora
The alpine enclaves of the high East African mountains provide a number of geographically and ecologically isolated temperate islands, inhabited by an afroalpine flora which is poor in species andExpand
Variation among populations of Clarkia Unguiculata (Onagraceae) along altitudinal and latitudinal gradients.
It is found that while some traits were correlated with one gradient in the expected way, all traits were not consistently associated with each other along both gradients, and intraspecific patterns of variation differed from interspecific patterns. Expand
The hypothesis that there has been a pronounced level of autochthonous speciation in the Colombian Andes relative to other areas is supported. Expand

Associações inseto-planta no nível local e regional: Tephritidae e Vernonieae na Serra do Espinhaço
Examination of host association pattern of herbivorous insects with their host plants in five localities of the southern Espinhaco range in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil shows that associations partly shift also in response to factors which affect the insects themselves. Expand
