ABSTRACT
Based on the revision of herbarium specimens and palynological evidence, a taxonomic study of the Mexican species of the genus Sicydium is proposed. A total of four species are recognized for Mexico: Sicydium davilae, endemic to the state of Chiapas, S. schiedeanum and S. tamnifolium, widely distributed in tropical America, and S. tuerckheimii, distributed from southern Mexico to Central America. The paper presents comments about the variation found in the most relevant morphological and palynological characters. The taxonomic part includes an identification key to the species, as well as descriptions, synonymy, habitat and geographic distribution data, and illustrations.

    This study was based on macrofungi specimens collected from Sinop province between 1998 and 2000. According to the field and laboratory work, 170 taxa belonging to 32 families have been identified and 32 of these taxa were added to Turkey's macromycota flora as new records.

    In this research, two species of Consolida (C. rugulosa and C. persica) were studied. Because of many similarities in characters and overlaps in distributions, some ambiguities have been seen. These two species were studied by the use of morphological, anatomical and micromorphological methods,...

    Documenting nonhermaphroditic sexual systems, a task of major interest for evolutionary biology, is particularly problematic in rare or remote species, for which field sampling is difficult or field specimens or herbarium material is scarce. In addition to hermaphroditism, monoecy and dioecy...

    Several range disjunctions have been identified in the Australian species of the genus Terminalia L. Field studies and examination of herbarium specimens of taxa with range disjunctions have demonstrated that taxonomic changes are justified. Detailed morphological studies of the Terminalia...

    The name Albuca caudata Jacq. has been widely misunderstood or even ignored since its description in 1791. After studying herbarium specimens and living populations in South Africa, plants fitting Jacquin's concept of that species are found to be widely distributed in the Eastern Cape, mainly in...

    The examination of a large number of herbarium specimens combined with field observations reveal that Ficus palmata Forssk. subsp. palmata does not occur in India. The Indian plants occurring in the wild from the north-west to the south belong to F. palmata Forssk. subsp. virgata (Roxb.)...
