An ecologically significant new species of Dacryodes from the northern Andes. Although the resolution of certain clades is still vague, it was possible to determine that the islands were colonized from Central America by two distinct lineages, and that most species are restricted endemics that radiated during burseracear Middle Miocene to Pliocene De-Nova et al.

Frankincense, or olibanum, Boswellia carterii and myrrh Commiphora abyssinica have long been valued for the aromatic resins they produce. The resin of the Burseraceae is nonallergenic and two ovules per carpel occur, whereas the resin of the Anacardiaceae can be allergenic or poisonous and one ovule per carpel is found.

The family includes over species in the Amazon, including at least 65 species in the Colombian Amazon. All the contents of this journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

For the Burseraceae in general, most key geographic gaps are in the Malesian region, especially Borneo, the uplands of New Guinea, the Philippines, Vietnam and neighboring countries. Like all members, the tree releases ubrseraceae from the bark when wounded. Leaf anatomy and leaf architecture have proven to be useful for better delimitation of Antillean Burserahelping in the construction of a solid taxonomic treatment for the region including three new species.

Molecular-based Phylogeny and Taxonomic Questions in Protieae. How bursseraceae cite this article. Very few Neotropical Burseraceae are mostly or exclusively floodplain species e. Molecular-based Phylogeny and Biogeographical Reconstruction.

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.

Naked Indian also known as gumbo limboor Bursera simarubafaamilia particular, is found in FloridaMexico, the Caribbean, Venezuelaand Brazil. For example, Protium fragrans from Cuba falls neatly within a well-supported Icicopsis clade, as burseracea proposed by Swart and, similarly, the Guianas endemic P. For example, members of bursercaeae 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.


In the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments project in Central Amazonia, the family was 2nd in relative diversity, with 49 species, and Protium was the most speciose genus 35 burseracae.

These resins are extracted via tapping, or cutting of the bark to make it release sap. Gamilia results of a large-scale tree inventory of upland rain forest in the central Amazon. Elsewhere, professors of botany have such heavy teaching loads that they have difficulty finding time to identify plants and conduct systematic research.

The family is remarkable for having a high number of congeners in limited areas. Sarcoprotium can be distinguished rather easily with flowers present, or even with a petal or two persisting on the developing fruits, but sterile or with just fruits they are very difficult to separate.

Burseraceae by Thais Nogueira on Prezi

The Burseraceae are a moderate-sized family of genera and about species of flowering plants. As an example, in a lowland forest in Sarawak, the Burseraceae comprised the third most important tree family in relative density, second in basal area, and ninth in relative diversity, and it accounted for five of top 20 species in relative frequency Lee et al.

This page was last edited on 19 Decemberat An interesting application of molecular-based phylogenies is using sister-taxa relationships to infer speciation mechanisms.

A well-studied group can also be bursedaceae excellent testing ground for new or under-utilized tools and independent data sets. Version 8, June [and more or less continuously updated since] http: Research on the Famliia, with over taxa in the Amazon, is rapidly arriving at the point where the family can be used effectively both as a tool for conservation and as a model for studying the processes influencing the origin and maintenance of high diversity in the Amazonian flora.

Protium heptaphyllum

For example, in the early 19th century, the family seems to have been placed in the Burseraleswith the Anacardiaceae and Podoaceae. 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.


To maximize the utility of these studies, one must also have large numbers of specimens data-based and geo-referenced. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, Finally, the species of Protium sect. As for key taxa, during the same period we were finally able to collect and sample several key taxa for the first time: Thorough sampling is absolutely essential, as is a rigorous taxonomic foundation, and famklia revisions should be complemented by ecological and physiological studies.

The liquid sap hardens and is gathered, sold as is or further processed and mixed with spices, seeds, and roots to make various forms of incense. Anti-inflammatory activities of the triterpene acids from the resin of Boswellia carteri. Studies in Conservation, 45 1: Molecular Phylogeny burserxceae Speciation Mechanisms in Amazonian Protieae An interesting application of molecular-based phylogenies is using sister-taxa relationships to infer speciation mechanisms.

Journal of Tropical Forest Science Preliminary study of the anti-inflammatory activity of hexane extract and fractions from Bursegaceae simaruba Linneo Sarg. 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. For example, work in the Malphigiaceae has revealed that the oldest members of the family are African and that colonization of South America occurred later, via a land bridge in the Miocene Davis et al.

The Burseraceae trees or shrubs are characterized by resins having triterpenoids and ethereal oils; [6] that are present within the plant tissue from the vertical resin canals and ducts in the bark to the leaf veins.

For example, Beiselia mexicana Forman was recently proposed to constitute a distinct tribe basal to the rest of the Burseraceae Thulin et al. Articles with ‘species’ microformats Commons category famolia is on Wikidata. Species in the genus Burseraespecially the so-called elephant treegrow primarily in Mexico, where their secretions are a raw material in making varnish.
