Convolvulus crenatifolius Ruiz & Pavón is reported from Mexico for the first time. This species is native to South America. However, since as early as the end of the 19th century, it has been collected various times in central Mexico where it occurs in disturbed areas and is presumably adventitious. A morphological description is provided, as well as a key to separate this species from C. bonariensis Cav. and C. equitans Benth., two similar taxa with which C. crenatifolius is related.

    Vines depend on external support to prevent shading by neighbouring plants. Hence, it is important to determine whether shading enhances the phenotypic responses of vines to support availability. I evaluated the consequences of support availability (a vertical stake) on shoot and leaf traits of...
