A synopsis of the Neotropical species of Sticherus (Gleicheniaceae), with descriptions of nine new species


Gonzales, J; Kessler, M (2011). A synopsis of the Neotropical species of Sticherus (Gleicheniaceae), with descriptions of nine new species. Phytotaxa, 31:1-54.

Abstract

Sticherus (Gleicheniaceae) is a pantropical genus of about 95 species, characterized by scaly buds, mostly 1-forked
veinlets in the segments, (2–)3–5(–7) sporangia per sorus, pseudodichotomously branched blades with pinnatifid or
pinnate ultimate branches, and monolete spores. In the Neotropics, we recognize 54 species and three named hybrids. We
provide typifications, distributional data, and a key for all species. Nine species are described as new: S. albus, S.
antillensis, S. chocoensis, S. fuscus, S. jacha, S. moyobambensis, S. nervatus, S. ovatus, and S. rufus. The following new
combinations are proposed: S. boliviensis, S. cubensis, S. decurrens, S. farinosus, S. ferrugineus, S. interjectus, S.
lanosus, S. ×leonis, S. ×pseudobifidus, S. squamosus, and S. × subremotus.

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.
