Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 8/19/2014)
Reference(s):
Fl. Madagasc.: unpublished
APG website treatment: Fabaceae
Notes:

Alternate name: Leguminosae. Includes Mimosaceae, Caesalpiniaceae & Papilionaceae.
This treatment draws largely on the excellent Monograph on Malagasy Legumes by Du Puy, D. J., et al. (2002), but provides additional distributional data, and includes subsequent taxonomic changes and additions in Caesalpinia, Dalbergia, Dupuya, Gigasiphon, Indigofera, MimosaSamanea and Stuhlmannia. Bobgunnia madagascariensis (Desv.) J.H. Kirkbr. & Wiersema (syn. Swartzia madagascariensis), which is a widespread African sp., was almost certainly recorded in error from Madagascar and is therefore excluded.


Summary and Status Directory     (Last Modified On 8/19/2014)
Family and Genus Data:

The data in this table are derived from the corresponding Genus and Species pages. The table provides a summary of the treatment presented in the published parts of the Flore de Madagascar et des Comores, together with a summary of the data presented here in the Madagascar Catalogue, which includes information on the number of species currently accepted, and an estimate of the number of undescribed species for the genera for which a recent taxonomic evaluation has been conducted. The number of accepted species is added to the estimate of undescribed species to provide an estimated total. Place cursor over headers marked [+] for further explanation of the column contents.
