An ecologically significant new species of Dacryodes from the northern Andes. Burseraceae Kunth [1] Genera See text The Burseraceae are a moderate-sized family of genera and about species of flowering plants. This page was last edited on 19 Decemberat A monograph of the genus Protium and some allied genera Burseraceae.

ProtiumCommiphoraBurseraand Canarium Daly et al. Taxonomy of Vascular Plants. A Phylogenetic Approach 3rd ed. For example, work in the Malphigiaceae has revealed that the oldest members of the family are African and that colonization of South America occurred later, via a land bridge familiw the Miocene Davis et al.

Burseraceae – Wikipedia

For example, Beiselia mexicana Forman was recently proposed to constitute a distinct tribe basal to the rest of the Burseraceae Thulin et al. Almost three quarters of the 35 species investigated in the Peruvian Amazon by Fine et al.

First, Dacryodes excelsa of the Canarieae is an important old-growth species found in the Caribbean. Amazonia, Anacardiaceae, conservation, phylogeny. The family includes over species in the Amazon, including at least 65 species in the Colombian Amazon. Just as the family size in terms of genera and species differs according to the time period of the study, so, too, does its placement in the higher ranks.

Version 8, June [and more or less continuously updated since] http: Ambilobeaa new genus from Madagascar, the position of Aucoumeaand comments on the tribal classification of the frankincense and myrrh family Burseraceae.


The phylogenetic history and historical biogeography of the frankincense and myrrh family Burseraceae based on nuclear and chloroplast sequence data.


The Burseraceae comprise an excellent model for studying Amazonia because of its high diversity, ecological importance, diversity of habitats occupied, and habitat specificity. A well-studied group can also be an excellent testing ground for new or under-utilized tools and independent data bburseraceae as an example of this, to date we have prepared permanently mounted leaf clearings of species of tribe Protieae in preparation for a detailed analysis of the value of leaf architecture for Burseraceae systematics see Ellis et al.

These advances will further increase the value of well-studied plant groups as models for research on floristics, conservation, and speciation. Tropical forest diversity and dynamism. Species in the familiq Burseraespecially the so-called elephant treegrow primarily in Mexico, where their secretions burseracese a raw material in making varnish. Notes on Dacryodes Vahl, including a new species from the Rio Negro basin.

Diversity and Classification of Flowering Plants. The leaves are generally alternate, spiral, and odd-pinnately compound with opposite, frequently long-petiolulate, entire to serrate, pinnately veined leaflets whose symmetry is distinctive in some genera. Molecular approaches are already making inroads into some of burseraaceae most stubborn problems in higher-level Burseraceae classification, and examples have been cited of issues where this will prove to be the case at lower ranks as well, but additional tools hold great promise.


By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Reconstructions of biogeography using the phylogeny of the Burseraceae points to a Northern Hemisphere origin with subsequent migrations into Africa, Asia and the New World Tropics Weeks et al.

In Burns, Russell M. Nevertheless, the family is a genetically burseracsae monophyletic group currently and frequently cited within the Sapindales and is recognized as a sister group to the Anacardiaceae.

The Protieae are examined in more detail below. First, we are resolving higher-level phylogenies camilia well as species-level taxonomy in various clades, allowing comparative approaches.


Burseraceae: a model for studying the Amazon flora

Perspectives in biology and medicine 48 2. In tribe Bursereae, Bursera moves toward absorbing Commiphoraas recent phylogenetic analyses are revealing new patterns within traditional lineages, with Bursera subgenus Elaphrium Jacq. Elsewhere, professors of botany have such heavy teaching loads that they have difficulty finding time to identify plants and conduct systematic research. The University of Texas, Austin.

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 Burseraceae comprise ca. The Importance fxmilia Sampling It is important to be very cautious when making sweeping interpretations of biogeographic history when one does not have a comprehensive sample of all of the taxa including extinct species.

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

Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution The family includes both trees and shrubsand is native to tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and the Americas.

Frankincense, or olibanum, Boswellia carterii and myrrh Commiphora abyssinica have long been valued for the aromatic resins they produce. Future studies burseracrae quantify the level of gene flow that crosses habitat boundaries in order to directly test whether speciation-with-gene flow is occurring within P. 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.
