The clear sap oozes from the tree and hardens to a white, aromatic waxy resin that can be used to make candles and incense. We cannot understand Amazonian Burseraceae or any other group, for that matter if all we know about is the Burseraceae of Amazonia. University of Chicago Press, Chicago. The family is remarkable for having a high number of congeners in limited areas.
The Protieae are composed of Protium species and nurseraceae in this tribeCrepidospermum, Garugaand Tetragastris. The data-basing and digitization of Amazonian herbaria, using standardized software, are beginning to reduce duplication of effort and increase consistency in recorded identifications; Brazil’s national flora checklist project and a small number of regional floristic projects are helping as well.
The seeds of this species are burseracee a source of food for birds. Acknowledgements We recognize the support of U. Elsewhere, professors of botany have such heavy teaching loads that they have difficulty familka time to identify plants and conduct systematic research.
The Burseraceae are characterized by the nonallergenic resin they produce in virtually all plant tissue and the distinctive smooth, yet flaking, aromatic bark. First, Dacryodes excelsa of the Canarieae is an important old-growth species found in the Caribbean.
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. Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics These resins are extracted via tapping, or cutting of the bark to make it release sap. Our rapidly improving understanding burserzceae Burseraceae systematics and biogeography, combined with the family’s diversity, ecological importance, and habitat specialization in the Amazon region, make it an excellent group for studying the Amazon flora.
Studies in Conservation, 45 1: The actual numbers differ according to the time burseraceze in which a given source is written describing this family. While Bursera is notorious for hybridizing e. 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.
The Burseraceae comprise an excellent model for studying Amazonia because of its high diversity, ecological importance, diversity of habitats occupied, and habitat specificity. The liquid sap hardens and is gathered, sold as is or further processed and mixed with spices, seeds, and roots to make various forms of incense.
Second, Protium heptaphyllum is a highly variable, widespread species ranging from Costa Famila to S Brazil that needs to be burseaceae subject of at least a master’s thesis using morphometrics and molecular systematics.
Lambir forest dynamics plot, Sarawak, Malaysia. Famllia of rainforest faunas: The remainder of the tribe comprises two small genera, Crepidospermum 6 species and Tetragastris One such cladogram indicated that the Sapindales are robust and that the Burseraceae and Anacardiaceae are within a single clade.
In eastern Amazonia and the Guianas, the importance of the Burseraceae is due primarily to their great numbers.
Burseraceae: a model for studying the Amazon flora
The gumbo limbo grows quickly and can be used to make a living fence especially out of cut limbs that are placed straight into the ground or for restoration projects as a pioneer species. A well-studied group can also be an excellent testing ground for new or under-utilized tools and independent data sets. Fossils of the Protieae, Canariae and Bursereae have been found in London and Florissant, Colorado, even though those lineages no longer occur in the Northern Hemisphere outside of the tropics.
Clarified higher-level phylogenetic relationships open the door to more refined systematics of clades without having to worry if they are para- fwmilia polyphyletic. Ambilobeaa new genus from Madagascar, the position of Aucoumeaand comments on the tribal classification of the frankincense and myrrh family Burseraceae.
Silvics of North America. Phylogeography of edaphic specialist and generalist species of Protium Burseraceae: Burseracead 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.
For example, members of the tribe Protieae are generally found in South America, those of the Bursereae are found in Africa and Mesoamericawhile members of the Canarieae are found in Malaysia.
With the removal of Trattinnickia Willd. The next divergence was in the Early Eocene when the Burserinae i. 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 family includes both trees and shrubsand is native to tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and the Americas. The Burseraceae are a moderate-sized family of genera and about species of flowering plants. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. Tropical forest diversity and dynamism.
Like all members, the tree releases sap from the bark when wounded.
Protium heptaphyllum – Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre
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.
Manual of leaf architecture. An ecologically significant new species of Dacryodes from the northern Andes. Surveying multiple populations of a species complex across its geographic range and assessing genetic variation within and between populations and comparing it to the amount of variation between morphologically distinct and discrete species is one way to begin to resolve these questions using genetic data.
The synapomorphies of the Sapindales include pinnately compound, alternate and spiral leaves that may be palmately compound, trifoliate, or unifoliate, and small four- or five-merous flowers having a characteristic nectar disk and imbricate petals and sepals. As for the Protieae, our phylogeny in Figure 2 reveals a similar story. Still, there is strong cause for hope.
