As examples, there are 48 species of Bursera in the state of Guerrero, Mexico Rzedowski et al.

Acta Botanica Mexicana In Burseraa broad sampling was important to determine the relationships of the Antillean species with their relatives in mainland Central and South America.

Burseraceae: a model for studying the Amazon flora

Retrieved from ” https: Records say that the family has 17 [3] [8] [9] to 18 [5] [7] genera and [3] [8] to [9] to species. This is a list of the 19 genera of the Burseraceae with placement in tribe and subtribe where applicable: In tribe Bursereae, Bursera moves toward absorbing Commiphoraas recent phylogenetic analyses are revealing new patterns within traditional lineages, with Bursera subgenus Elaphrium Jacq.

The wood itself is useful for constructing housing, furniture, boxes, small boats, and a variety of other wood-based products; the utility of the wood is comparable to that of mahogany and birch. The Burseraceae are also thought to be a lineage that has migrated between the Old and New World via a Boreotropical landbridge Weeks et al.

Pollen morphology and systematics of Burseraceae.

Manual of leaf architecture. Perspectives in biology and medicine 48 2. Finally, the species of Protium sect. The Sapindales are contained within the malvids of the rosid clade within the eudicotyledons. The clear sap oozes from the tree and hardens to a white, aromatic waxy resin that can be used to make candles and incense.


Studies in neotropical Burseraceae XI. Almost three quarters of the 35 species investigated in the Peruvian Amazon by Fine et al. As noted, one Protium clade consists possibly exclusively of species with large, globose fruits that at maturity are green without and white within, suggesting dispersal by bats; the implication is that bat dispersal may have arisen only once or at most a few times in Protium.

The latter three are frequently cited in the literature for their renowned importance.

In central Amazonia, the family is strikingly important under both these criteria. We cannot understand Amazonian Burseraceae or any other group, for that matter if all we know about is the Burseraceae of Amazonia. Characterization of the balm of an Egyptian mummy from the Seventh Century B.

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.

The leaves are generally alternate, spiral, and odd-pinnately compound with opposite, frequently long-petiolulate, entire to serrate, pinnately veined leaflets whose symmetry is distinctive in some genera.

Crepidospermum and Tetragastris are thus far both monophyletic but nested within Protiumso as it stands the tribe may end up being a single genus of ca.

Similar results from other studies [5] [14] find that Ramilia mexicanaa native of Mexico, is basal to the remaining Burseraceae. 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.

These results may indicate that the family originated in Mexico. Studies in neotropical Burseraceae XVI. Finally, several groups present what have been intractable challenges among the Amazonian Burseraceae; the molecular-based phylogeny will aid in the untangling of species complexes and synonomy questions, but all require expanded botanical exploration. In the western part, relative density is far lower but relative diversity far higher.


Three additional groups of species familiaa similar investigations. Eu – Icica excepted: Molecular genetic evidence for interspecific hybridization among Hispaniolan Bursera Burseraceae. 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. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution Molecular phylogeny and to a lesser extent morphology are changing the composition and structure of tribe Canarieae.

Burseraceae – Plantas de Colombia

For example, Beiselia mexicana Forman was recently proposed to constitute a distinct bursedaceae basal to the rest of the Burseraceae Thulin et al. The mechanism of seed dispersal via animal link vectors endozoochoric dispersal may explain how most Burseraceae were able to expand their range so efficiently bburseraceae the globe.

In their ecological importance, the Burseraceae are on a par with all of the great families of trees in Amazonia and the Guianas, but the manner in which this importance is achieved differs from one region to another.

A portable dictionary of the vascular plants. Lambir forest dynamics plot, Sarawak, Malaysia. Alternatively, sister taxa can have parapatric ranges and specialize in different habitat types, indicating a very famklia mechanism Moritz et al. Several representative species within the Burseraceae typify the economic and ethnobotanic significance of the family. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
