BIOTA-FAPESP Program, regarded as one of the largest research programs related to biodiversity conservation in Brazil, has generated an extensive database, which subsidizes actions related to management and conservation of specific areas of São Paulo State. Actions directed to the use and dissemination of data generated by BIOTA Program in basic education schools may be an alternative s...
Neotropical Myrtaceae species are circumscribed in Myrtoideae, Myrteae tribe. Recent phylogenetic analyzes confirmed Eugenia monophyly hypothesis. In addition, were recognized some phylogenetic groups organized in informal clades, such as clade 7, which corresponds to the Calycorectes genus. Traditionally, Calycorectes genus was recognized as distinct from Eugenia by calyx lobes fused i...
The Cerrado is a typically savanic phytogeographic domain with high biodiversity and endemism values, suffering a high anthropic pressure. One of the largest, continuous and still conserved areas of Cerrado is the Jalapão region, in Tocantins. Despite this region being protected by conservation unities of integral protection, there is a huge information gap about its flora and about the...
The genus Utricularia (Lentibulariaceae) is the most diverse among carnivorous plants and has a worlwide geographical distribution. These plants are characterized by presence of modified leaves (traps), known as utricules that act on aquatic and terrestrial microfauna capture. Utricularia sect. Foliosa is a homogeneous group composed of e 3 spp., of which is difficult its delimitation. ...

Myrtaceae occur on all continents except Antarctica. Estimates of numbers of Myrtaceae world-wide suggest between 4600-5800 species. Currently, Myrtaceae is divided into two subfamilies, Myrtoideae and Psiloxyloideae. The former includes fifteen tribes including tribe Myrteae that houses the hyper-diverse genus Eugenia. Phylogenetic analysis shows Eugenia to be monophyletic, comprising ...
The tribe Myrteae contains the neotropical species of Myrtaceae and shows remarkable taxonomic complexity, thus resulting in difficult identification of their taxa. The tribe comprises 49 genera and about 2500 species. Lucas et al. (2007) propose 7 clades inside Myrteae, among which is "Myrcia Group" (=Myrcia s.l.), comprising about 700 species and exclusively neotropical. The phylogene...
