The genus Juglans in South America and the West Indies

  title={The genus Juglans in South America and the West Indies},
  author={Wayne E. Manning},
The first and only complete s tudy of the walnuts of South America was that of Dode (1909), who recognized 7 species. Nagel (1914) discussed briefly the walnuts of South America but recognized only J. neotropica and J. australis. Maebride (1936) did not describe any new species but a t tempted to assess the species of Dode which were repor ted for Peru. Record and Hess (1943) recorded observations of various collectors on the distr ibution of walnuts in South America. Lcroy (1953) mapped the… Expand

Notes on the temperate species of Juglans
Introduction The walnuts have always excited interest for their combination of utility and beauty, but despite this, most species of Juglans remain little known in cultivation and poorly described inExpand
Natural history, distribution, phylogenetic relationships, and conservation of Central American black walnuts (Juglans sect. Rhysocaryon)1
The studies of the dispersed and most likely fragmented populations indicate that Juglans may still be found in native plant communities as a canopy tree, although it is much more common to observe populations in cleared areas where the trees were retained as shade for coffee. Expand
7. Cladistic Biogeography of Juglans ( Juglandaceae) Based on Chloroplast DNA Intergenic Spacer Sequences
Juglans L. is principally a New World genus within the tribe Juglandeae of the family Juglandaceae, comprising about 21 extant deciduous tree species occurring from North and South America, the WestExpand
First records of Jamaican walnuts Juglans jamaicensis (Juglandaceae) from Irish and UK waters, together with observations on other walnut species reported from NW Europe
On 30 December 2015, a single specimen of Juglans was found stranded on Tramore Beach (54° 48′ 25″N, 08° 30′ 01″W), Rosbeg, Co Donegal, NW Ireland. A second specimen was found on Black Rock Beach,Expand

The species of the family Juglandaceae have evolved along 56 million years, being distributed all over the world. Juglans neotropica is native to South America; it is found from 1800 m to 2800 m inExpand
Molecular phylogeny of Juglans (Juglandaceae): a biogeographic perspective
The results suggest that the NCS sequence divergence observed within and between sections of Juglans is low and the addition of matK data only marginally improved resolution within Rhysocaryon, and the extant taxa may not hold the footprints to unravel the evolutionary history of the genus. Expand
Late Miocene Palaeocarya (Engelhardieae: Juglandaceae) from Southwest China and its biogeographic implications
It is proposed that the wide distribution of Palaeocarya and relatively narrow distributions of close relatives, Engelhardia, Alfaropsis, and Oreomunnea, might be associated with a stepwise cooling and a major ice sheet expansion in the Antarctic and Arctic from the late middle Miocene to early Pliocene.
