A new combination is made placing Pennisetum pseudotriticoides in the genus Cenchrus. This species is common and often dominant in the southern part of central Madagascar, associated with inundation and fire, and withstanding high grazing. A description, a detailed plate, a map, and list of known specimens are provided.

Background and AimsDiploid and polyploid Urochloa (including Brachiaria, Panicum and Megathyrsus species) C4 tropical forage grasses originating from Africa and now planted worldwide are important for food security and the environment, often being planted in marginal lands. We aimed to characterize the nature of their genomes, the repetitive DNA, and the genome composition of polyploids, leading to a model of the evolutionary pathways within the group including many apomictic species. MethodsSom...

Unprecedented changes in the Earth’s biota are prompting urgent efforts to describe and conserve plant diversity. For centuries, botanical monographs — comprehensive systematic treatments of a family or genus — have been the gold standard for disseminating scientific information to accelerate research. The lack of a monograph compounds the risk that undiscovered species become extinct before they can be studied and conserved. Progress towards estimating the Tree of Life and digital information r...

We introduce the AusTraits database - a compilation of measurements of plant traits for taxa in the Australian flora (hereafter AusTraits). AusTraits synthesises data on 375 traits across 29230 taxa from field campaigns, published literature, taxonomic monographs, and individual taxa descriptions. Traits vary in scope from physiological measures of performance (e.g. photosynthetic gas exchange, water-use efficiency) to morphological parameters (e.g. leaf area, seed mass, plant height) which link...
