Eggli, U; Marchesi, E; Bonifacino, M; Nyffeler, R (2008). Taxonomy and distribution of epiphytic cacti in Uruguay - notes towards a checklist of Cactaceae of Uruguay, Part 3. Haseltonia, 14(1):161-169.

Abstract

The most recent treatments of the family Cactaceae for Uruguay are that of Arechavaleta (1905), Osten (1941), and Herter (1953–55). While the globular members of the family (Parodia [including Notocactus], Frailea, and Gymnocalycium) are relatively well known through numerous later individual publications, the epiphytic species of Lepismium and Rhipsalis are comparatively poorly-known. Based on herbarium material and recent collections, we present data on the geographical distribution and taxonomy for two species of Lepismium and two species of Rhipsalis. Lepismium cruciforme and Rhipsalis floccosa are new records for the flora of Uruguay. The occurrence of Epiphyllum phyllanthus in Uruguay could not be confirmed.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
