The remainder of the tribe comprises two small genera, Crepidospermum 6 species and Tetragastris 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.

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. The Protieae are examined in more detail below.

Protium heptaphyllum – Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre

Bioinformatics, Applications Note Our results to date are compatible with the scenario of the Amazon flora as relatively young, with groups like the Burseraceae undergoing relatively recent and rapid speciation. For example, if we did not have samples of Protiumfragrans in the phylogeny, we would conclude that the basal lineage Burseracwae Engl.

Generic limits in Neotropical Protieae and Canarieae. 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.

The seeds of this species are also a source of food for birds. More specifically, the earliest diverging genus was Beiselia of the Bursereae subtribe Boswelliinae in either North America, Mexico, or the Caribbean in the Paleocene.

In the Protieae, Fine et al. Marchand and the mostly Cerrado specialist Famolia. The following discusses the current status of research on the family on several scales as it becomes one of the better studied families in Amazonia. A well-sampled phylogeny can provide insights into burserceae historical burseracead of a lineage.


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. Burseraceae Bursera simaruba Gumbo-limbo Scientific classification Kingdom: Studies in neotropical Burseraceae XI. These issues extending beyond the limits of Familka also go well beyond nomenclature, because they affect conclusions about diversity, endemism, biogeography, and conservation.

Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society.

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.

Studies in neotropical Burseraceae XIV. The molecular-based phylogeny has also contributed to the circumscription of these sections, including unusual taxa that were misplaced on first examination.

Overall, the Burseraceae score somewhat higher in relative density than in relative diversity number burseracfae species and far higher in relative density than in relative “dominance” basal area burxeraceae, as they tend to be small to medium-sized trees.

The Burseraceae are also known as the torchwood family, [2] the frankincense and myrrh family, or simply the incense tree family. A portable dictionary of the vascular plants.

The Sapindales are contained within the malvids of the rosid clade within the eudicotyledons. The family is remarkable for having bursraceae high number of congeners in limited areas. The family includes over species in the Amazon, including at least 65 species in the Colombian Amazon.

The clear sap oozes from the tree and hardens to a white, aromatic waxy resin that can be used to make candles and incense.

Burseraceae: a model for studying the Amazon flora

Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics Access to biodiversity for researchers has improved, and there are some embryonic efforts at international cooperation in frontier regions of Amazonia; this includes Colombia, where very recently botanical exploration has become markedly safer and more feasible. Lambir forest dynamics plot, Sarawak, Malaysia. Molecular approaches are already making inroads into some of the 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.


These resins are extracted via tapping, or cutting of the bark to make it release sap. 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. As examples, there are 48 species of Bursera in the state of Guerrero, Mexico Rzedowski et al.

The Burseraceae are characterized by the nonallergenic resin they produce in virtually all burseracrae tissue and the distinctive smooth, yet flaking, aromatic bark. The families and genera of vascular plants. Europe and Asia via the Boreotropical Land Bridge and the continents in the Southern Hemisphere, which is now the area of the greatest generic diversity of this family.

The latter four genera occur on at least two continents, and four genera in the family each have more than species: Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution Introduction Why a Global Approach?

This is consistent with the hypothesis that that the common ancestor of Protium fragrans and all other New World Protieae lived in the New World tropics before the lineage ever arrived in the Amazon and began its spectacular radiation of over species. For example, in the fammilia 19th century, the family seems to have been placed in the Burseraleswith the Anacardiaceae and Podoaceae.

Molecular-based Phylogeny and Biogeographical Reconstruction.

In Burseraa broad sampling was famili to determine the relationships of the Antillean species with their relatives in mainland Central and South America. 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. Almost three quarters of the 35 species investigated in the Peruvian Amazon by Fine et al.
