Two new genera and a new species of Anacardiaceae from northern South America

Cyrtocarpa is a generic name that has been applied to members of a complex of dry-habitat Neotropical taxa, but recent investigations have revealed that in fact this group represents three distinct genera. Tumultivenia and Uniostium, two new genera of Anacardiaceae-Spondioideae, are described and illustrated, as is one new species, Cyrtocarpa caribaea.

Pervasive gaps in Amazonian ecological research

We integrate ecological community metadata of 7,694 sampling sites for multiple organism groups in a machine learning model framework to map the research probability across the Brazilian Amazonia, while identifying the region’s vulnerability to environmental change.

Amazon tree dominance across forest strata

Here, we use a large floristic dataset to show that, while hyperdominance is a universal phenomenon across forest strata, different species dominate the forest understory, midstory and canopy.
