Lanonia (Arecaceae: Palmae), a New Genus from Asia, with a Revision of the Species

  title={Lanonia (Arecaceae: Palmae), a New Genus from Asia, with a Revision of the Species},
  author={Andrew Henderson and Christine D. Bacon},
Abstract A recent phylogenetic study based on molecular data indicates that Licuala (Arecaceae: Palmae) is not monophyletic. A highly supported group of species is resolved separately from Licuala and the rest of the Livistoninae, and is closely related to Johannesteijsmannia, requiring that the segregate group be placed in a new genus. In this study a phylogeny based on seven gene regions resolves highly supported generic relationships of the Livistoninae. A survey of Licuala specimens from… 

Beyond Genera Palmarum: progress and prospects in palm systematics

It is concluded that palm systematic knowledge is far from complete and that tools, such as GP2, only stimulate further scientific research and discovery, so many aspects of the palm Tree of Life still remain scarcely known.

An all-evidence species-level supertree for the palms (Arecaceae).

In situ radiation explains the frequency of dioecious palms on islands.

It is suggested that trait flexibility in sexual system evolution and the in situ radiation of dioecious lineages are the underlying causes of the outstanding distribution of palms on islands.

PalmTraits 1.0, a species-level functional trait database of palms worldwide

A global species-level compilation of key functional traits for palms (Arecaceae), a plant family with keystone importance in tropical and subtropical ecosystems, is presented.

Frugivory-related traits promote speciation of tropical palms

Animal-mediated seed dispersal by frugivorous birds and mammals is central to the ecology and functioning of ecosystems, but whether and how frugivory-related traits have affected plant speciation

A genus‐level phylogenetic linear sequence of monocots

The sequence is provided in a numbered list of each of the 1225 genera in 75 monocot families, together with a complementary alphabetical list, which represents a standardized tool for the organisation ofmonocot herbarium collections.


The correspondence of the results with Southeast Asian geologic and climatic history show how palms emerge as excellent models for understanding the historical formation of fine‐scale biogeographic patterns in a phylogenetic framework.

DNA Barcode Authentication of Saw Palmetto Herbal Dietary Supplements

Mini–barcode analysis of saw palmetto dietary supplements demonstrated that 29 (85%) contain saw Palmetto and that 2 (6%) supplements contain related species that cannot be legally sold as herbal dietary supplements in the United States of America.

Patriotism, place, and provisioning: assessing cultural ecosystem services through longitudinal and historical studies in Vietnam

Cultural ecosystem services (CES) provide multiple benefits to people, including experiences, identities, and capabilities through both material and non-material means. There have been few studies of

Etude de l’appareil reproducteur des palmiers (Arecaceae) : évolution du système sexuel et du nombre d’étamines

Les palmiers constituent une famille emblematique de monocotyledones, comprenant 183 genres et environ 2500 especes distribuees sur tous les continents dans les zones tropicales et subtropicales.



A new subfamily classification of the palm family (Arecaceae): evidence from plastid DNA phylogeny

A new subfamilial classification of the palms is established, in which five subfamilies are recognized, rather than the six that were included in the previous classification, and critical basal nodes are now fully resolved and, in most cases, strongly supported.

Phylogeny of the Palm Tribe Chamaedoreeae (Arecaceae) Based on Plastid Dna Sequences

The results of this study show high resolution at the species level, especially within the largest genus, Chamaedorea, indicating that plastid DNA is useful for the inference of relationships at low taxonomic levels in some groups of palms.

A new phylogenetic classification of the palm family

Summary. An outline of a new phylogenetic classification of the palm family ( Arecaceae , syn. Palmae ) is publishedwith the aim of validating new names of suprageneric taxa prior to the publication

A New, Dioecious, Dimorphic Species of Licuala (Palmae) from Hainan, China

Evidence is presented that L. hainanensis, endemic to Hainan, China, is both dioecious and sexually dimorphic, based on its flower and rachilla morphology.

The genus Licuala (Arecaceae; Coryphoideae) in Thailand

The palm genus Licuala is revised for Thailand. Thirteen species are recognised mainly occurring in the understorey of rainforests in peninsular Thailand. Six recently described species are reduced

Morphological diversity of the genus Licuala (Palmae)

The variation found in the genus Licuala is described and its significance in taxon delimitation is described.

Molecular Phylogenetics of Tribe Geonomeae (Arecaceae) Using Nuclear DNA Sequences of Phosphoribulokinase and RNA Polymerase II

Phylogenetic analyses were performed on six genera and 46 species of the Neotropical palm tribe Geonomeae and outgroups composed of 14 species from the Arecoidae, two from the Ceroxyloideae, and one from the Phytelephantoideae adding support to the previously reported monophyly of the tribe.

Phylogenetic analyses of Polemoniaceae using nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene matK

The family as a whole was monophyletic with no support for the segregate family Cobaeaceae, and several well supported groups allowed us to test hypotheses of relationship within Polemoniaceae.

Complete generic-level phylogenetic analyses of palms (Arecaceae) with comparisons of supertree and supermatrix approaches.

This study demonstrates that supertree and supermatrix methods can provide effective, explicit, and complimentary mechanisms for synthesizing disjointed phylogenetic evidence while emphasizing the need for further refinement of supertree methods.
