Notes on the Nomenclature of Neotropical Capparaceae: An Answer to Global flora
- Cornejo, Xavier
- Harvard papers in botany 2018 v.23 no.2 pp. 179-185
- Capparaceae, Neotropics, flora, new combination
- The 90 new combinations on Neotropical Capparaceae published in The Global Flora (Plant Gateway, 2018) are here discussed and clarified. On the basis of morphologic and molecular studies, the name of Morisonia L. cannot be applied in a broad sense for all Neotropical Capparaceae. Therefore, the names proposed by Christenhusz and Byng are placed in synonymy here.
