New Caledonian Piliocalyx transferred to Syzygium (Myrtaceae) with an updated conspectus of the species
TLDR
New Caledonian Piliocalyx transferred to Syzygium (Myrtaceae) with an updated conspectus of the species is described and a list of specimens confirmed for each species is included.
“LUBEG” (Philippine Cherry), Syzygiumlineatum (Roxb.) (DC.) Merr & Perry: Its Taxonomic and Molecular Identification
TLDR
‘Syzygium’ was derived from the Greek term ‘syzygos,’ meaning the paired leaves are opposite in arrangement and ‘lineatum’ means stripes, netted veins on the leaves, based on the sequences, the plant sample belongs to the genus Syzygio, which belongs to family Myrtacaea.
A new rheophytic species of Syzygium (Myrtaceae) from the lower Kunene River of Angola and Namibia
TLDR
A conservation assessment of Vulnerable (VU D1) is recommended for the new species of Syzygium kuneneense, known only from the northern part of the Namib Desert in the Kaokoveld Centre of Endemism.
Five new species of Syzygium (Myrtaceae) from Sulawesi, Indonesia
TLDR
These are the first descriptions of Syzygium species from the island since Blume (1850, Jambosa celebica and J. cornifolia), highlighting the significant lack of taxonomic research on the genus for the region.
Syzygium Cordatum Hochst. ex Krauss: An Overview of Its Ethnobotany, Phytochemistry and Pharmacological Properties
TLDR
Pharmacological evaluations revealed that S. cordatum is characterized by several biological activities including antibacterial, antifungal, antidiarrheal, anti-sexually transmitted infections,antidiabetic, anticholinesterase,Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiplasmodial and anti-proteus, which lend credence to the traditional ethnomedicinal uses and ethnopharmacological importance of S. Cordatum.
Fossil wood of Syzygium from the Miocene of Guangxi, South China: the earliest fossil evidence of the genus in eastern Asia
A new species, Syzygium guipingensis sp. nov. (Myrtaceae), is described based on mummified fossil wood from the Miocene Erzitang Formation of Guiping Basin, Guangxi, South China. This species
Diversity, endemism, and composition of tropical mountain forest communities in Sulawesi, Indonesia, in relation to elevation and soil properties
TLDR
It is concluded that the mountains of Sulawesi harbour remarkably species-rich, but still understudied, TMF with a unique tree flora rich in understorey trees, which are of high conservation priority.
Origins and Assembly of Malesian Rainforests
Unraveling the origins of Malesia's once vast, hyperdiverse rainforests is a perennial challenge. Major contributions to rainforest assembly came from floristic elements carried on the Indian Plate
COMPARATIVE WOOD ANATOMICAL PROPERTIES OF GENUS SYZYGIUM (FAMILY MYRTACEAE) FROM MANIPUR, INDIA
TLDR
The present study showed that all the selected Syzygium species shared common features like simple perforation plate, inter-vessel pits, disjunctive ray parenchyma cells, diffuse, diffuse-in-aggregate, vasicentric, aliform and confluent types of axials, which can be used for reliable identification of SyzyGium species.
Essentials Oils from Brazilian Eugenia and Syzygium Species and Their Biological Activities
TLDR
The essential oils of 48 species of Eugenia and Syzygium species, which grow in South America and found mainly in Brazil, presented many biological activities, especially antimicrobial, antioxidant, acaricidal, antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory.

A revision of Syzygium Gaertn. (Myrtaceae) in Indochina (Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam)
ABSTRACT The genus Syzygium (Myrtaceae) is revised for Indochina (Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam). The species key, descriptions, typification, ecology, conservation status, phenology, vernacular names,
Syzygium subscandens (Myrtaceae), a new species from Sumatra.
TLDR
The new species of Syzygium Gaertn from Sumatra is described and illustrated, similar to S. garciniifolium, but differs in being a small tree and in having longer terminal and axillary panicles.
Molecular systematics of Syzygium and allied genera (Myrtaceae): evidence from the chloroplast genome
TLDR
Investigation of higher level relationships within the Syzygium group, using parsimony and Bayesian analyses of cpDNA sequences from the matK and ndhF genes and the rpl 16 intron, generated for a total of 87 species from the SyZombie group and eight outgroup taxa finds four major well supported clades.
Revision of Eugenia and Syzygium (Myrtaceae) from the Comoros archipelago
TLDR
A taxonomic revision of all native Myrtaceae genera ( Eugenia and Syzygium ) of the Comoros is presented based on herbarium specimens and molecular and palynological evidence, with the majority being threatened with extinction.
New combinations for Pacific endemic species: Marquesan Poaceae, and Micronesian Myrtaceae
TLDR
In order to compile an accurate checklist of the Pacific island flora with up-to-date taxonomies, several species are moving several species to their currently accepted genera.
Syzygium pyneei (Myrtaceae), a new critically endangered endemic species from Mauritius
TLDR
This species is endemic to the island of Mauritius and differs from any other species by its combination of cauliflory, relatively large flowers, light green to cream hypanthium, light pink stamens and short thick petioles.
Notes on Myrtaceae in the Mascarenes with Some Recombinations for Taxa from Aldabra, Malaya, New Caledonia
TLDR
Four genera of Myrtaceae are indigenous to the Mascarenes, Eugenia, Monimiastrum (gen. nov.), Psiloxylon, and Syzygium, and several introduced genera are represented by naturalized species or by commonly cultivated species, such as Callistemon and Eucalyptus.
A NEW SPECIES OF SYZYGIUM GAERTN. (MYRTACEAE) FROM N BORNEO : SYZYGIUM VELUTINUM A. P. DAVIS
TLDR
The delimitation of Syzygium sensu lato from the New World genus Eugenia sensu stricto was convincingly demonstrated by Schmid (1972), who characterized these groups on evidence from a study of floral anatomy and morphology.
Nomenclature of Syzygium gracile (Myrtaceae)
TLDR
Syzygium gracile (korth.) Amshoff is superfluous: ‘glabratum’ should have been used, as there seems to be no SyzyGium glabrata then and now (IPNI, May 21, 2003).
New taxa and combinations in Cleistocalyx and Syzygium (Myrtaceae) in Thailand
TLDR
Fourteen new taxa in Cleistocalyx and Syzygium are described and 35 new combinations established: C. khaoyaiensis, C. phengklaii, S. enervosum and S. putii, and 35 newly established combinations established.
