We examine various aspects of Joseph Quer's Flora espanola (1762–1764, 1784), taking into consideration the contributions made by Casimiro Gomez Ortega and proposing that he be credited as a co-author on the last two volumes of the work. Flora espanola comprises 2602 species, 2493 of which are vascular plants, including both wild and cultivated species. When assigned to the currently accepted species of Flora iberica, we obtain 1690 native or naturalized plant species (28 % of the total Spanish ...

Delphinium fissum subsp. sordidum has been found in calcareous and schistaceous slopes on the Mines of Santo Adriao, Tras-os-Montes region —close to Braganca, northeastern Portugal—. It is the first record of this taxon in Portugal and the westernmost locality of its general distribution area. Its conservation status, according to the most recent IUCN categories and criteria, should be “Critically Endangered” in Portugal.

The Iberian flora has a high degree of originality (1328 endemic species, 24% of endemism), comparable to other regions in the Mediterranean Basin. The richness of Iberian endemic species is unevenly distributed; the greatest diversity is found in the main mountain ranges although the southwestern Atlantic coast and specially the Balearic Islands are rich in range-restricted endemic species. The largest number of endemic genera is found in the northwestern mountains, which might have acted as a ...

An historical review of the Iberian flora is presented here to give a summary of the main milestones from the fourteenth century until today. More than 400 years of floristic work has been briefly analysed from Clusius’ time until today, with special attention on the oldest and less known aspects. The Iberian flora comprises 6276 species including 739 non-native species. 1258 species (being 22.8% of the native species) are endemic. This shows that the Iberian flora is rather special; even so, th...

Contribution to the vascular plants flora of San Ignacio de Huinay natural reserve, Comau fiord, Region de los Lagos, Chile. To date, 262 species with their herbaria sheets stored in 5 different American and European herbaria (CONC, M, MA, and SGO) and that of Huinay, are known in the territory. In this work some first new records for the South Cone are included, such as Potentilla anglica, Plantago media , and Mentha x rotundifolia . Furthermore, some of the records are new for the Flora of Chi...

The catalogue of extinct plants in Spain, comprising 27 taxa is updated. Included are four species not previously classified as extinct in Spain: Cyclamen purpurascens, Grammitis quaerenda, Stratiotes aloides and Vallisneria spiralis. We analyze the causes of extinction and explore the possible influence of botanical collections in species loss. The obtained data suggest that habitat loss has been the main cause of extinction and the impact of collecting is demonstrated to be irrelevant. We list...
