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, then they were compared with type specimens and it was inferred that C. rugulosa can be synonym to C. persica.

    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...

    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...
