9780893275037: Combretaceae: Terminalia and Buchenavia With Abdul-Ridha Alwan (Fora Neotropica Monograph)

The 107th volume of Flora Neotropica is a monograph of the family Combretaceae in the Americas. The Combretaceae are a medium-sized family of about 500 species found throughout the tropical regions of the world, extending into the subtropics in all continents. Fourteen genera are recognized, five of them (Combretum, Terminalia, Buchenavia, Conocarpus and Laguncularia) in the New World. They are mostly trees or lianas of forest, or small trees or shrubs of savanna, plus a few mangroves or mangrove-associates. Full descriptions of all 85 American species and their infraspecific taxa are provided, together with details of ecology, distribution and reproductive biology, a list of exsiccatae examined, and a discussion of taxonomic characteristics and problems; all the species are illustrated at least in part, and references are given to illustrations elsewhere. Dichotomous keys to all the taxa are provided, as are comprehensive dot-maps showing the occurrence of each taxon. The two richest centers of diversity are Amazonia and SE Brazil. The main commercial interest is for timber; two species of Terminalia are important in the international market. This monograph is the culmination of work carried out by the author over the past 50 years, involving the examination of about 10,000 specimens.
