Abstract.  Tibouchina bruniana P. J. F. Guim. and T. araguaiensis P. J. F. Guim., two new species from Goiás and Tocantins, respectively, in central Brazil, are described, illustrated, and compared to their putative closest relatives. Both new species belong to Tibouchina sect. Barbigerae Naudin, which is characterized by long, simple trichomes on the anthers, positioned over the union between the staminal filament and connective. Tibouchina bruniana can be distinguished by its solitary flowers… Expand
Validation of the Names Tibouchina albescens and Tibouchina nigricans (Melastomataceae), Two New Species from Central Brazil
TLDR
Two new species of Tibouchina from Central Brazil are described and illustrated and compared with their relatives, and one differs from this species in its appressed-strigose, dendritic trichomes on the leaf abaxial surface. Expand
Two New Species of Pleroma (Melastomataceae) from Brazil
TLDR
A new species of Melastomeae (Melastomataceae) from Brazil is described and illustrated, and compared to its putative closest relatives. Expand
Chromosome counts in Chaetogastra (Melastomataceae, Melastomateae)
TLDR
Although the sampling in the genus is still poor, the data found in the literature and in the research indicate x=9 as the base chromosome number for the genus, and it is found that euploidy may be common in Chaetogastra. Expand
FLORAL EXTRACT OF Tibouchina granulosa (DESR.) COGN. PHYTOCHEMISTRY PROSPECTION, AND ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY
Tibouchina granulosa is a species that blooms annually in several regions of Brazil. This species is still little explored in terms of phytocompounds in all organs of this plant, especially theExpand
Acylated Flavonoid Glycosides are the Main Pigments that Determine the Flower Colour of the Brazilian Native Tree Tibouchina pulchra (Cham.) Cogn.
TLDR
Twenty-three flavonoids were identified with eight flavonols isolated by preparative high-performance liquid chromatography and analysed by one- and two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance, contributing to the chemical characterisation of these taxa. Expand

Development of microsatellite markers for the endangered Neotropical tree species Tibouchina papyrus (Melastomataceae).
TLDR
12 microsatellite loci for Tibouchina papyrus (Melastomataceae), an endangered species with narrow and disjunct range, endemics to a few localities in "cerrado rupestre" from Central Brazil, were isolated and characterized by sequencing of a genomic shotgun library for primer design. Expand
