Burseraceae in Eastern Amazonia and the Guianas. The Protieae are examined in more detail below. The families and genera of vascular burserxceae. In modern times resins from these trees are used in Chinese herbal medicine and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to treat several ailments. Introduction Why a Global Approach?

Biflavonyls and the affinities of Blepharocarya. Annual Review damilia Ecology and Systematics 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. 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 burseraeae is one way to begin to resolve these questions using genetic fa,ilia.

The phylogenetic history and historical biogeography of the frankincense and myrrh family Burseraceae based on nuclear and chloroplast sequence data. A portable dictionary of the vascular plants. First, we are resolving higher-level phylogenies as well as species-level taxonomy in various clades, allowing comparative approaches.

Categoría: Burseraceae

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.

In tribe Bursereae, Bursera moves toward budseraceae Commiphoraas recent phylogenetic analyses are revealing new patterns within traditional lineages, burserraceae Bursera subgenus Elaphrium Jacq. Similarly, if the Amazonian Protium puncticulatum J. Elsewhere, professors of botany have such heavy teaching loads that they have difficulty finding time to identify plants and conduct systematic research.


Fossils of the Protieae, Canariae and Bursereae have been found in London and Florissant, Colorado, even though those lineages no longer occur in burseaceae Northern Hemisphere outside of the tropics.

More specifically, the earliest diverging genus was Beiselia of the Bursereae subtribe Boswelliinae in either North America, Mexico, or the Caribbean in the Paleocene.

Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution A monograph of the genus Protium and some allied genera Burseraceae. We cannot understand Amazonian Burseraceae burseeraceae any other group, for that matter if all we know about is the Burseraceae of Amazonia. In eastern Amazonia and the Guianas, the importance of the Burseraceae is due primarily to their great numbers.

Retrieved from ” https: Nevertheless, the family is a genetically supported monophyletic group currently and frequently cited within the Sapindales and is recognized as a sister group to the Anacardiaceae. As for key taxa, during the same period we were finally able to collect and sample several key taxa for the first time: The molecular-based phylogeny has also contributed to the circumscription of these sections, including unusual taxa that were misplaced on first examination.

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 for studying the Amazon flora.

Well-supported phylogenies can be used to test hypotheses for a spectrum of issues, such as the origins and affinities of lineages, e. In central Amazonia, the family is strikingly important under both these criteria. For example, most if not all of the clade that includes Protium altsonii Sandwith, P. Several species in the genus Canarium are used bursdraceae edible fruits for example, Canarium albumthe Chinese olive and nuts pili nuts, Canarium ovatum.

In Burseraburseraveae broad sampling was important to determine the relationships of the Antillean species with their relatives in mainland Central and South America. Like all members, the tree releases sap from the bark when wounded. Services on Demand Journal. These advances will further increase the value of well-studied plant groups as models for research on floristics, conservation, and speciation. The Sapindales are contained within the malvids of the rosid clade within the eudicotyledons.

Burseraceae Bursera simaruba Gumbo-limbo Scientific classification Kingdom: Preliminary study of the anti-inflammatory activity of hexane extract and fractions from Bursera simaruba Linneo Sarg. The seeds of this species are also a source of food for birds. Still, fzmilia is strong cause for hope.


The trajectory of Bursera tells a very different story. A well-studied group can also be an excellent testing ground for new or fmilia tools and independent data sets.

Version 8, June [and more or less continuously updated since] http: In Burns, Russell M. Commonly known as tabonuco or gommier, also candlewoodDacryodes excelsa is a large, dominant tree found in Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean.

Biodiversity Heritage Library

Our results to date are compatible with the scenario of the Amazon flora as burrseraceae young, with groups like the Burseraceae undergoing relatively recent and rapid speciation. For example, in the early 19th century, the family seems to have been placed in the Burseraleswith the Anacardiaceae and Podoaceae. 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.

Protieae Brseraceae Protium copal Tetragastris.

Burseraceae – Wikipedia

Records say that bjrseraceae family has 17 [3] [8] [9] to 18 [5] [7] genera and [3] [8] to [9] to species. Diversification in the family occurs via multiple mechanisms, even within some clades, but in Amazonia, in the absence of obvious barriers to genetic exchange, divergence via habitat shifts is likely to be more prevalent than in other regions. Reconstructions of biogeography using the phylogeny of the Burseraceae points to a Northern Hemisphere origin with subsequent migrations into Famiia, Asia and the New World Tropics Weeks et al.

Studies in neotropical Burseraceae XIV.

This sets the stage for the revealing fmilia that can be conducted using molecular phylogenies. Recent collections made in that region are being incorporated into a more complete molecular phylogeny Fine et al.
