A well-sampled phylogeny can provide insights into the historical biogeography of a lineage. Dacryodes is pantropical as currently circumscribed but may prove to be polyphyletic A. Despite the large cluster of Protium species towards the top of Figure 2 that are unassigned to sections, it includes some well-supported groups that are united by morphological bugseraceae and thus could become new named sections in the future.

One issue that will be helped by molecular studies at infra- burseraceaee 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. The family is ecologically versatile overall, but individual species tend to show habitat preferences and a number are habitat specialists, although few species of Burseraceae are found as habitat specialists in flooded, poorly-drained or extremely poor soils; those that do are often restricted geographically.

Acknowledgements We recognize the support of U. A well-studied group can also be an excellent testing ground for new or under-utilized tools and independent data sets. We cannot understand Amazonian Burseraceae or any other group, for that matter if all we know about is the Burseraceae of Amazonia.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Commiphora Burseraceae yields insight on the evolution and historical biogeography of an “impossible” genus. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Research on the Burseraceae, with over taxa in the Amazon, is rapidly arriving at the point where the familiz 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. More specifically, the earliest diverging genus was Beiselia of the Bursereae subtribe Boswelliinae bhrseraceae either North America, Mexico, or the Caribbean in the Paleocene.


There is surprising evidence for B. Anti-inflammatory activities of the triterpene acids from the resin of Boswellia carteri.

Burseraceae: a model for studying the Amazon flora

Biflavonyls and the affinities of Blepharocarya. Molecular-based Phylogeny and Taxonomic Questions in Protieae Generic limits and many relationships within Protieae historically have proven difficult to resolve based on morphology alone e.

Molecular-based Phylogeny and Biogeographical Reconstruction. The latter three are frequently cited in the literature for their renowned importance. Just as the family bursefaceae in terms of genera and species differs according to the time period of the study, so, too, does its placement in the higher ranks.

Bursetaceae using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. First, we are resolving higher-level phylogenies as well as species-level taxonomy in various clades, allowing comparative approaches.

The Burseraceae are distributed throughout the world and primarily in the tropics, especially MalaysiaAfrica, and Central and South America. 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.

The Importance of Sampling It is important to be very cautious when making sweeping interpretations of biogeographic history when one does not have a comprehensive sample of all of the taxa including extinct species. Our rapidly improving understanding of Burseraceae systematics and biogeography, combined with the family’s diversity, ecological importance, and habitat specialization in the Amazon region, make it an excellent group for studying the Amazon flora.

The Burseraceae are also known as the torchwood family, [2] the frankincense and myrrh family, or simply the incense tree family. Studies in neotropical Burseraceae XVI. University of Chicago Press, Chicago. ProtiumCommiphoraBurseraand Canarium Daly et al. Phylogeography of edaphic specialist and generalist species of Protium Burseraceae: Retrieved 13 March Phylogeny of Acridocarpus-Brachylophon Malpighiaceae: Molecular-based Phylogeny and Taxonomic Questions in Protieae.

Fossils of the Burderaceae, Canariae and Bursereae have been found in London and Florissant, Colorado, even though those lineages no longer occur in the Burseracfae Hemisphere outside of the tropics.


Molecular delimitation and infraordinal groups. Finally, the namesakes of the family Boswellia carterii frankincense and Commiphora abyssinica myrrh are important economically and medicinally in several parts of the world.

For example, Beiselia mexicana Forman was recently proposed to constitute a distinct tribe basal to the rest of the Burseraceae Thulin et al.

The Burseraceae comprise an excellent model for studying Amazonia because of its high diversity, ecological importance, diversity of habitats occupied, and habitat specificity. Clarified higher-level phylogenetic relationships open the door to more refined systematics of clades without having to worry if they are para- or polyphyletic.

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.

Services on Demand Journal. Silvics of North America. The family is remarkable for having a burseracexe number of congeners in limited areas. Preliminary results of a large-scale tree inventory of upland rain forest in the central Amazon. Very few Neotropical Burseraceae are mostly or exclusively floodplain species e. Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 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.

Burseraceae by Thais Nogueira on Prezi

In eastern Amazonia and the Guianas, the importance of the Burseraceae is due primarily to their great numbers. A monograph of the genus Protium and some allied genera Burseraceae. Like all members, the tree bhrseraceae sap from the bark when wounded. For example, members of the 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.
