For example, if we did not have samples of Protiumfragrans in the phylogeny, we would conclude that the basal lineage Icicopsis Engl.

Preliminary results of a large-scale tree inventory of upland rain forest in the central Amazon. Marchand and the mostly Cerrado specialist P. A monograph of the genus Protium and some allied genera Burseraceae. A well-sampled phylogeny can provide insights into the historical biogeography of a lineage. As an example, in a lowland forest in Ffamilia, the Burseraceae comprised the third most important tree family in relative density, second in basal area, and ninth in relative diversity, and it accounted for five of top 20 species in relative frequency Lee et al.

A new Amazonian section of Protium Burseracaee including both edaphic specialist and generalist taxa. Research on the Burseraceae, with over taxa in the Amazon, is rapidly arriving at the point where the family can be used effectively both as a tool for conservation and as a model for studying the processes influencing the origin and maintenance of high diversity in the Amazonian flora.

Subsequent cooling and drying of the global climate caused two lineages of the Protieae to move south, one towards the Old World tropics and another towards South America. First, Dacryodes excelsa of the Canarieae is an important old-growth species found in the Caribbean.

Services on Demand Journal. Drukkerij Koch en Knuttel, Gouda. Barriers to Progress The obstacles to progress in the study of the Burseraceae are those faced by all Amazonian botanists, but this does not make them any less damaging nor bring them closer to resolution.


City University of New York. The next divergence was in the Early Eocene when the Burserinae i. Commonly known brseraceae tabonuco or gommier, also candlewoodDacryodes excelsa is a large, dominant tree found in Puerto Rico burseradeae other parts of the Caribbean. According to the literature, the Burseraceae have not been lumped with other families nor split up into several others. Meanwhile, there is still a severe shortage of professional and productive in the sense of burserqceae botanists based in Amazonia; there are still campuses of federal universities that do not have a single Ph.

It is impossible to decipher an Amazonian group without a global grasp of the group, particularly in adjacent floras. Biflavonyls and the affinities of Blepharocarya. A fzmilia revision of Protium Burm. Acta Botanica Mexicana Perspectives in biology and medicine 48 2. Tropical forest diversity and dynamism.

Leaf anatomy and leaf architecture have proven to be useful for better delimitation of Antillean Burserahelping in the construction of a solid taxonomic treatment for the region including three new species.

American Journal of Botany In the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments project in Central Amazonia, the family was 2nd in relative diversity, with 49 species, and Protium was the most speciose genus 35 spp. The trajectory of Bursera tells a very different story. World pollen and spore flora In eastern Amazonia and the Guianas, the importance of the Burseraceae is due primarily to their great numbers.


One issue that will be helped by molecular studies at infra- specific rank is the question of whether one or more clusters of names that have been synonymized are in fact complexes of closely related species; these include Protium decandrum Aubl. Insights into the historical construction of species-rich Mesoamerican seasonally dry tropical forests: Molecular-based Phylogeny and Taxonomic Questions in Protieae Generic limits and many relationships within Protieae historically have proven difficult to resolve based on morphology alone e.

Taxonomy of Vascular Plants. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution The Burseraceae comprise ca. Crepidospermum and Tetragastris are thus far both monophyletic but nested within Protiumso as it stands the tribe may end up being a single genus of ca.


Finally, the surprising number of Andean Protium species, most of them recently discovered and still undescribed, invite investigation as to whether colonization of montane habitats has occurred multiple times and relatively recently.

Burseraceae – Plantas de Colombia

In Burseraa broad sampling was important to determine the relationships of the Antillean species with their relatives in mainland Central and South America. Nevertheless, the family is a genetically supported monophyletic group currently and frequently cited within the Sapindales and is recognized as a sister group to burseracrae Anacardiaceae. The families and genera of vascular plants. Ambilobeaa new genus from Madagascar, the position of Aucoumeaand comments on the tribal classification of the frankincense and myrrh family Burseraceae.

We recognize the support of U. Thorough sampling is absolutely essential, as is a rigorous taxonomic foundation, and taxonomic revisions familiw be complemented by ecological and physiological studies. In central Amazonia, the family is strikingly important under both these criteria. Our rapidly improving understanding of Burseraceae systematics and biogeography, combined with the family’s diversity, ecological importance, and habitat fsmilia in the Amazon region, make it an excellent group for studying the Amazon flora.

There is surprising evidence for B. Phylogeny of Acridocarpus-Brachylophon Malpighiaceae: Burseraceae in Eastern Amazonia and the Guianas. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

A Broader View of Amazonian Burseraceae Our rapidly improving understanding of Burseraceae systematics and biogeography, combined with the family’s diversity, ecological importance, and habitat specialization in the Amazon region, make it an excellent group burseaceae studying the Amazon flora. Molecular Phylogeny and Speciation Mechanisms in Amazonian Protieae An interesting application of molecular-based phylogenies is using sister-taxa relationships to infer speciation mechanisms.
