A monograph on foliar anatomy of the genera Connellia, Cottendorfia, and Navia (Bromeliaceae) by Harold Ernest Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 102 presently known species of the pitcairnioid genera Connellia, Cottendorfia, and Navia are discussed, illustrated, and keyed on the basis of cross sections and epidermal peels of leaves. Comparison with other genera of the bromeliad sub-family Pitcairnioideae indicates Connellia, Cottendorfia, and Navia belong in a series with Ayensua, Brocchinia, Fosterella, Pitcairnia, and Puya that have sharply demarcated chlorenchyma and water-storage layers in the mesophyll. Abromeitiella, Deuterocohnia, Dyckia, Encholirium, and Hechtia seem to be another related series without such sharp demarcation. Connellia is considered related to a series of Cottendorfia species having elongate stomata. Many Cottendorfia species show abaxial water-storage tissue of a structure similar to Puya and some Amazonian species of Pitcairnia. In Navia, the species with paniculate or racemose inflorescences are found to represent three rather distinct groups, one of which seems close to Cottendorfia. Species of Navia with vascular bundles more completely enclosed in chlorenchyma, with scales replaced by trichomes, with sessile or glomerate inflorescences, or with connate and partially reduced sepals are considered specialized. A great number of substomatal variations are recorded in Navia that distinguish species or groups of species. Navia lopezii is shown to have a very modified epidermal structure with simple stomata and no scales, characters unlike any other bromeliad presently known

Generic and subtribal classification of American Vernonieae by Harold Ernest Robinson( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Vernonieae in America is herein defined to exclude the Liabeae and Pseudostifftia (Moquinieae), and to include elements sometimes placed in the Heliantheae (Trichospira) or Lactuceae (Stokesia). Pollen, style bases, raphids, inflorescence form, involucre, anther appendage, and chemistry are some characters used in the reclassification. Tables 1-12 indicate the distribution of these characteristics in most American genera. Vernonia s.s., with type A pollen, is typified by V. noveboracensis (L.) and occurs in the Bahamas, eastern North America, south to central Mexico and has two species in temperate South America. All other species previously placed in Vernonia need to be removed from the genus, a process that is nearly complete for neotropical species. Most American Vernonieae seem to form a single related subgroup in the tribe. Subtribes included in the related subgroup are the Lychnophorinae (x 15, 17, 18) and Centratherinae (x 16) with type A pollen and furoheliangolides; Piptocarphinae (x 17) with type A pollen, deciduous inner involucre, and sometimes opposite leaves; Vernoniinae (x 17), many with glanduliferous anther appendages (including the Lepidaploa complex mostly with echinolophate pollen); and the newly proposed subtribes Sipolisiinae with type A pollen, armed receptacles, and carbonized achenes; Chrestinae with echinolophate pollen; and Leiboldiinae (x 19) with type A pollen, large heads, and a modified callus at the top of the achene. Of uncertain relationship to the preceding related subgroup are Stokesia (x 7), the Elephantopodinae (x 11, 13), and the Rolandrinae (x 8) with echinolophate pollen; three genera with type E pollen (Pacourina, Acilepidopsis, and Mesanthophora); and the Trichospirinae with type A pollen and flattened bicornute achenes. Ten subtribes are recognized, plus four unplaced generic groups. Three of the subtribal names, Leiboldiinae, Chrestinae, and Sipolisiinae are validated in the treatment. The genus Caatinganthus of eastern Brazil, a possible relative of the Elephantopinae, is described as new. A list of the 76 accepted genera of Vernonieae, native or introduced in the New World, is provided, and a complete list of names of American Vernonieae is given with an indication of their present taxonomic dispositions and geographical distributions. Fifteen new combinations are provided
A review of Philippine Hookeriaceous taxa (musci) by Benito Ching Tan( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The limits of the Hookeriaceae are discussed with the exclusion of some recently added elements, Cyathophorum, Cyathophorella, and Dendrocyathophorum. Of the genera traditionally placed in the family, Chaetomitrium is also excluded, but briefly reviewed. Segregate families based on peristome structure, such as the Daltoniaceae, are rejected. Papillose peristomes show at least three basically distinct types in the Hookeriaceae and they probably evolved at least three separate times. Keys are furnished to the 11 genera and 36 species of Hookeriaceae recognized in the Philippines and to the 17 species of Chaetomitrium in the country. Eleven species are newly reported from the country including four in Chaetomitrium, four in Distichophyllum, two in Leskeodon, and one in Calyptrochaeta. Bryobrothera is reported from the country. Ten new synonyms are cited. Five new combinations, Calyptrochaeta microblasta, C. ramosa, Distichophyllum nigricaule var. elmeri, Daltonia robbinsii, and Leskeodon brevicuspidatus, and one new name, Chaetomitrium schofieldii, are proposed. Lectotypes are selected for Calyptrochaeta ramosa (Fleischer) Tan & Robinson, Distichophyllum brevicuspes Fleischer, D. nigricaule Mitten ex Bosch & Lacoste, D. gracilicaule Fleischer, Lepidopilum sumatranum Bosch & Lacoste, and Hookeriopsis wichurae Fleischer. New records reported from other countries include Daltonia armata for Sumatra and Achrophyllum dentatum and Distichophyllum subnigricaule for New Guinea

A palynological study of the Liabeae (Asteraceae) by Harold Ernest Robinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surface features and internal structure of the spines in the pollen of the Liabeae are illustrated by scanning electron microscopy and drawings made from oil immersion light microscopy. Observations are presented for all 16 genera of the tribe, Paranephelius and Pseudonoseris of the Paranephelinae, Astroliabum, Bishopanthus, Cacosmia, Chionopappus, Ferreyranthus, Liabellum, Liabum, Microliabum, Oligactis, and Sinclairia of the Liabinae, and Chrysactinium, Erato, Munnozia and Philoglossa of the Munnoziinae. No examples of echinolophate pollen are found in the tribe, but irregular groupings of spines are found to be characteristic of all but Munnozia and Chrysactinium in the Munnoziinae and Paranephelius and Pseudonoseris in the Paranepheliinae. The distribution of caveate forms in the Liabeae is clarified. The presence of a large cavus-like space interrupted by thin basal columuellae is confirmed in the genus Paranephelius, correcting early observations showing the genus as an exception to the basic uniformity of exine structure in the tribe. However, subcaveate forms have been discovered in the tribe in the genus Munnozia. SEM study of broken tecta in the genus Munnozia show previously unsuspected great potential for variation between closely related species and species groups. The structure of the exine supports views derived from floral structures regarding relationships with other tribes. No support is seen for a phyletic position near the Senecioneae, and closest similarity is seen to the Vernonieae. A basic difference is discovered in the arrangement of the basal columellae between the Liabeae and the Vernonieae, being clustered or forming a hollow cylinder under each spine in the former but forming a single solid basal columella under each spine in the most nearly comparable members of the latter. Genera of the Vernonieae shown for comparison include the non-lophate Blanchetia, Pseudostifftia, and Vernonia, and the lophate Bishopalea, Heterocypsela, and Phyllocephalum

The mosses of Juan Fernandez Islands by Harold Ernest Robinson( Book )

9 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keys and descriptions are presented for the mosses of Juan Fernandez Islands. A total of 129 species are recognized in 73 genera and 32 families. Thirty-three of the species (about 25 percent) are endemic. Four new combinations are provided: Amphidium tortuosum, Calyptrochaeta grandiretis, C. leptoloma, and Diplostichum jamesonii
A generic review of the tribe Liabeae (Asteraceae) by Harold Ernest Robinson( Book )

9 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The neotropical tribe Liabeae is treated with approximately 157 species aligned in 15 genera and three subtribes, the Liabinae containing Austroliabum, Cacosmia, Chionopappus, Ferreyranthus, Liabellum, Liabum, Microliabum, Oligactis, and Sinclairia; Paranepheliinae containing Paranephelius and Pseudonoseris; and Munnoziinae containing Chrysactinium, Erato, Munnotia, and Philoglossa. The latter two subtribes are formally described herein as new. The tribe is placed in the subfamily Cichorioideae, and distinctions from the Vernonieae are discussed. A phylogeny of the tribe is proposed with probable central Andean origin. Various elements of the tribe are traced phyletically and geographically. The genera are seen as unusually well isolated from one another compared to genera in most of the more successful tribes of the Asteraceae. The apparent restriction of reticulating evolution to the early development of the Liabeae is suggested as a reason for the comparatively limited success of the tribe
Chromosome numbers in Compositae, XII, Heliantheae by Harold Ernest Robinson( Book )

16 editions published in 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chromosome reports are provided for 145 populations, including first reports for 33 species and three genera, Garcilassa, Riencourtia, and Helianthopsis. Chromosome numbers are arranged according to Robinson's recently broadened concept of the Heliantheae, with citations for 212 of the ca. 265 genera and 32 of the 35 subtribes. Diverse elements, including the Ambrosieae, typical Heliantheae, most Helenieae, the Tegeteae, and genera such as Arnica from the Senecioneae, are seen to share a specialized cytological history involving polyploid ancestry. The authors disagree with one another regarding the point at which such polyploidy occurred and on whether subtribes lacking higher numbers, such as the Galinsoginae, share the polyploid ancestry. Numerous examples of aneuploid decrease, secondary polyploidy, and some secondary aneuploid decreases are cited. The Marshalliinae are considered remote from other subtribes and close to the Inuleae. Evidence from related tribes favors an ultimate base of X = 10 for the Heliantheae and at least the subfamily Asteroideae

A systematic study of the subtribe Espeletiinae (Heliantheae, Asteraceae) by José Cuatrecasas( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1932, José Cuatrecasas made his first visit to the high-altitude zones of the northern Andes in South America. He was struck by the rich and complex vegetation of the páramos of Colombia; in particular, the bizarre life-form of Espeletia gave him "the impression of being confronted with a different world." At the time of his death in 1996 at the age of 93, Cuatrecasas had nearly completed his ambitious taxonomic revision of this fascinating group of plants. Seven genera of subtribe Espeletiinae are included here: Espeletia, Carramboa, Tamania, Libanothamnus, Ruilopezia, Coespeletia, and Paramiflos. (The eighth and final genus, Espeletiopsis, was summarized briefly in a separate paper in 1996.) The 269 botanical illustrations, 60 micrographs, and 190 monochrome photographs provide a wealth of historical, ecological, phytogeographical, anatomical, and cytological information -- P. 4 of cover
