The Burseraceae are characterized by the nonallergenic resin they produce in virtually all plant tissue and the distinctive smooth, yet flaking, aromatic bark. Anti-inflammatory activities of the triterpene acids from the resin of Boswellia carteri. 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 burseracrae dispersal burseraceqe have arisen only once or at most a few times in Protium.

Second, Bursera simaruba of the Famolia is a fast-growing ornamental that is one of a few representatives of the primarily tropical family in the United States. Records say that the family has 17 [3] [8] [9] to 18 [5] [7] genera and [3] [8] to [9] to species.

The following discusses the current status of research on the family on several scales as it becomes one of the better studied families in Amazonia. Clarified higher-level phylogenetic relationships open the door to more refined systematics of clades without having to worry if they are para- or polyphyletic.

Barriers to Progress The obstacles to progress in the study of the Burseraceae are those faced by all Amazonian botanists, but this does not make them any less damaging nor bring burseracrae closer to resolution. A taxonomic revision of Protium Burm. Burseraceae Bursera simaruba Gumbo-limbo Scientific classification Kingdom: Species in the genus Burseraespecially the so-called elephant treegrow primarily in Mexico, where their secretions are a raw material in making varnish.

For example, work in the Malphigiaceae has revealed that the oldest members of the family are African and that colonization of South America occurred later, via a land bridge in the Miocene Davis et al. A portable dictionary of the vascular plants. As for the Protieae, our phylogeny in Figure 2 reveals a similar story. These issues extending beyond the limits of Amazonia also go well beyond nomenclature, because they affect conclusions about diversity, endemism, biogeography, and conservation.

For the Burseraceae in general, most key geographic gaps are in the Malesian region, especially Borneo, the uplands of New Guinea, the Philippines, Vietnam and neighboring countries. A well-studied group of plants can serve as a model for bursefaceae different avenues of biological investigation, if the group’s state of the art includes three main components: Diversification in the family occurs via multiple mechanisms, even within some clades, but in Amazonia, in the absence of obvious barriers burswraceae genetic exchange, divergence via habitat shifts is likely to be more prevalent than in other regions.

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. Ambilobeaa new genus from Madagascar, the position of Aucoumeaand comments on the tribal classification of the frankincense and myrrh family Burseraceae.

According to the literature, the Burseraceae have not been bursseraceae with other families nor split up into several others.

Burseraceae – Wikipedia

For example, in the early 19th century, the family seems to have been placed in the Burseraleswith the Anacardiaceae and Podoaceae. The remainder of the tribe comprises two small genera, Crepidospermum 6 species and Tetragastris Still, there is strong cause for hope.


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. Bursera pereiraea genus new to the Cerrado complex bursersceae Brazil. The molecular-based phylogeny has also contributed to the circumscription of these sections, including unusual taxa that were misplaced on first examination.

The molecular systematics and biogeography of the Burseraceae. These results may indicate that the family originated in Mexico. Meanwhile, there is still famliia severe shortage of professional and productive in the sense of publications botanists based in Amazonia; there are still campuses of federal universities that do not have a single Ph.

Biochemical Systematics and Ecology, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The data-basing and digitization of Amazonian herbaria, using standardized software, are beginning to reduce duplication of effort and increase consistency in recorded identifications; Brazil’s national flora checklist project and a small number of regional floristic projects are helping as well.

In the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments project in Central Amazonia, the family was 2nd in relative diversity, with 49 species, and Protium was the most speciose genus 35 spp. Version 8, June [and more or less continuously updated since] http: A well-sampled phylogeny can provide insights into the historical biogeography of a lineage. Silvics of North America. World pollen and spore flora Wikimedia Commons has media related to Burseraceae.

Very few Neotropical Burseraceae are mostly or exclusively floodplain species e. Views Read Edit View history.
