Although the Florentine botanist Pier Antonio Micheli and the Swedish physician and systematist Carl Linnaeus never met, they are linked through Micheli’s Nova Plantarum Genera (1729), of which Linnaeus was a great admirer. A recently located letter from Linnaeus, dating from 1736 when he was in the Netherlands, shows Linnaeus’s appreciation of Micheli’s understanding of groups of plants in which Linnaeus had little expertise. Linnaeus’s own works, notably his Species Plantarum (1753), cited… 

Diversity of fungal endophytes in the semi evergreen vine thickets of the southern Brigalow Belt bioregion and their production of antimicrobial secondary metabolites.

The results of this study indicate that Semi-evergreen vine thickets (SEVT) harbour a vast storehouse of novel and medicinally significant endophytic fungi.

Lectotypification of four names in Lobelia (Lobeliaceae)

Linnaeus, in his protologue, provided a diagnosis under this name, citing in synonymy polynomials with illustrations from Boccone and Micheli and adding "Habitat in Italia".

Typification of Linnaean specific and varietal names in the Leguminosae (Fabaceae)

Out of a total of almost 9000 Linnaean plant names at the rank of species or variety, 747 now fall within this family, which represents an important subset of the whole, and is investigated for the present paper.


The genus Frullania Raddi (1818) was divided into six subgenera by Spruce (1884) and with the addition of a new subgenus by Verdoorn (1929) [Saccophora] and has created certain difficulties since several European workers, among them Bonner (1965), have regarded Frulla dilatata (L.) Dum.

A Note on the Typification of Vallisneria spiralis (Hydrocharitaceae)

Vallisneria spiralis L. is an aquatic species which is common and widespread in the tropics and warm temperate regions. It is also well-known in cultivation and is frequently planted as an oxygenator

Typification of 23 Allium species described by Linnaeus and possibly occurring in Africa

1. ampeloprasum L.n., in herbarium Petiver (BM SL 152, folio '53), Newton s.n.

Nomenclatural problems in Pleurozia (Pleuroziaceae): the lectotypification of Pleurozia Dumort., Jungermannia sphagnoides Schwagr., Pleurozia sphagnoides Dumort., P. purpurea Lindb., Mnium jungermannia L. and Jungermannia undulata L. (Hepaticae)

A review is presented of nomenclatural problems in the genus Pleurozia Dumort. including the typif?cation of five binomials relevant to the study of the genus. It is shown that the first

Seventy-two proposals for the conservation of types of selected Linnaean generic names, the report of Subcommittee 3C on the lectotypification of Linnaean generic names

Subcommittee 3C was the third of three subcommittees comprising the Special Committee on Lectotypification authorised by the Berlin Congress and was established to produce specific proposals aimed at avoiding disadvantageous changes in the usage of Linnaean generic names.

A taxonomic revision of Lamium (Lamiaceae)

The differences in habitats and also in distribution areas were the starting point for an intuitive phylogenetic reconstruction of the genus Lamium, in which Lamium galeobdolon is included, in spite of a number of deviating morphological and chemical characters.

Cortinarius subgen. Cortinarius (Agaricaies) in the Nordic countries, taxonomy, ecology and chorology

A continuous and arbitrary morphological variation is found within the C. violaceus complex, only the spore shape shows a more or less discontinuous variation, which is correlated to ecological parameters.

Lectotypification of Linnaean names for Flora Nordica (Brassicaceae ‐ Apiaceae)

Linnaean names appearing in Flora Nordica in the families Brassicaceae - Apiaceae (in the conventional family sequence of the Flora) are typified. The main sources for types are the Linnaean
