Abstract Alseuosmia quercifolia A.Cunn., previously treated as a hybrid (A. ×quercifolia) or as an entity informally known as A. sp. “Hakarimata”, is reinstated as a distinct species. This species occurs most commonly in lowland native forests of the Waikato region (from 38OS), but also occurs in sparse populations as far north as North Cape. Although lamina morphology is somewhat variable, A. quercifolia has a set of morphological characters unique to the species and not intermediate between… Expand
Ecology and conservation of Alseuosmia quercifolia (Alseuosmiaceae) in the Waikato region, New Zealand
It is suggested that Alseuosmia quercifolia fulfils the requirements of the category “declining”, using the most recent classification of threatened and uncommon plants of New Zealand, and is vulnerable because it is highly palatable to introduced mammals. Expand
A biological and ecological review of the endemic New Zealand genus Alseuosmia (toropapa; Alseuosmiaceae)
ABSTRACT We review the biology and ecology of the endemic New Zealand genus Alseuosmia A. Cunn. The taxonomy of the genus has a complicated history with considerable debate about both itsExpand

Phylogenetic Studies in the Euasterids II: With Particular Reference to Asterales and Escalloniaceae
Using the recently developed Bayesian approach to phylogenetic reconstruction, in combination with a dataset consisting of the atpB, ndhF and rbcL nucleotide sequences, a resolved and fairly well supported phylogeny of the Euasterids II could be reconstructed. Expand

A synopsis of Alseuosmiaceae in New Zealand, New Caledonia, Australia, and New Guinea
It has become clear that Alseuosmia has no alliance to the Caprifoliaceae but must be regarded as allied to Saxifragaceae sensu lato, either as a distinct family or as a subfamily. Expand
