A thorough morphological circumscription of the tribe Mutisieae (Asteraceae) was established in 1977 by Angel L. Cabrera (1908–1999), who made fundamental worldwide contributions to the tax...

The histochemical studies that search for osmophores differ in the protocol they follow for fixation and discoloration of the samples, and also in the type and number of stains utilized. Despite these differences, all the studies have one point in common: the use of fresh material either collected directly in the field or cultivated in botanical gardens and greenhouses. This is an obvious limitation for the studies of osmophores. Flower parts of herbarium specimens of different dates of collecti...

Despite the fact that plants represent the basis for the survival of life on Earth, the Botany of the 21st century is going through a crisis. The number of Botany students, of Botany courses, of plant collections, of Botany departments in universities and of botanists participating in meetings and conventions has been declining in recent years. In an attempt to understand this problem, the following topics are analyzed: scientific reductionism, the state of natural history collections, the logic...

Is it possible to teach biology without mentioning evolution? The answer is yes, but it is not possible for students to understand biology without the evolutionary context on which the meaning and intellectual value of biological concepts depend. Meaningful learning of evolution requires (1) that the students incorporate new knowledge into a cognitive structure linked with higher-order concepts; (2) a well-organized knowledge structure; and (3) a positive emotional attachment and identification ...

The challenge of increasing food production to keep pace with demand, while retaining the essential ecological integrity of production systems, requires coordinated action among science disciplines. Thus, 21st-century Agriculture should incorporate disciplines related to natural resources, environmental science, and life sciences. Biogeography, as one of those disciplines, provides a unique contribution because it can generate research ideas and methods that can be used to ameliorate this challe...

The genera Eriachaenium and Adenocaulon (Compositae) have distinct but complex histories and both have been placed in a number of tribes across the family. For the first time the two genera are included in a molecular study and the results show that they are best placed in the tribe Mutisieae s.s. and are the only genera in the re-instated subtribe Adenocaulinae. When described, this subtribe contained only Adenocaulon and was found in the Inuleae. The study also confirms one of the conclusions ...

The plant family Asteraceae (Compositae) exhibits remarkable morphological variation in the styles of its members. Lack of studies on the styles of the sister families to Asteraceae, Goodeniaceae and Calyceraceae, obscures our understanding of the origin and evolution of this reproductive feature in these groups. The aim of this work was to perform a comparative study of style morphology and to discuss the relevance of important features in the evolution of Asteraceae and its sister families.The...
