Asteraceae is the largest family among angiosperms, with about 1,600genera and 23,000 species. The family has 20 tribes, and Vernonieae groupthe least understood. Within Lychnophorinae there are several taxa notinvestigated chemically, as well as uncertainty in the phylogeneticposition of the same. The sesquiterpene lactones are substances that maybe related to protection against herbiv...
The Lychnophorinae subtribe has a geographic distribution nearly restricted to Brazil and occurs specially in Campo Rupestre and Cerrado Rupestre areas in Central Brazilian Plateau. In these environments, the species of Lychnophorinae are subjected to intense solar radiation, big changes in daily temperature, water scarcity during autumn and winter, and occurrence of fire, that it can b...
