Data from: Dianyuea gen. nov. (Salicaceae: Scyphostegioideae) from southwestern China

Ce Shang, Shuai Liao, Yong-Jie Guo & Zhi-Xiang Zhang
Dianyuea C. Shang, S. Liao & Z. X. Zhang, a new monotypic genus of Salicaceae based on Flacourtia turbinata H. J. Dong & H. Peng, is described and illustrated. Morphologically, Dianyuea differs from Flacourtia Comm. ex L'Hér. by having six connate stamens, basal placentation and lobed seed appendages. All those features indicate that Dianyuea is allied with Scyphostegia Stapf. A molecular phylogenetic analysis using plastid trnL-F, matK, and rbcL sequence data for representatives of 16...

Data from: Spatial variability in soil organic carbon in a tropical montane landscape: associations between soil organic carbon and land use, soil properties, vegetation, and topography vary across plot to landscape scales

Marleen De Blécourt, Marife D. Corre, Ekananda Paudel, Rhett D. Harrison, Rainer Brumme & Edzo Veldkamp
Presently, the lack of data on soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks in relation to land-use types and biophysical characteristics prevents reliable estimates of ecosystem carbon stocks in montane landscapes of mainland SE Asia. Our study, conducted in a 10 000 ha landscape in Xishuangbanna, SW China, aimed at assessing the spatial variability in SOC concentrations and stocks, as well as the relationships of SOC with land-use types, soil properties, vegetation characteristics and topographical attributes at...

Data from: Warm–cold colonization: response of oaks to uplift of the Himalaya–Hengduan Mountains

Hong-Hu Meng, Tao Su, Xiao-Yang Gao, Jie Li, Xiao-Long Jiang, Hang Sun & Zhe-Kun Zhou
Clarifying the relationship between distribution patterns of organisms and geological events is critical to understanding the impact of environmental changes on organismal evolution. Quercus sect. Heterobalanus is now distributed across the Himalaya–Hengduan Mountains (HHM) and warm lowland in East China, yet how the distribution patterns of this group changed in response to the HHM uplift remains largely unknown. This study examines the effect of tectonic events in the HHM region on the oaks, providing a...

Data from: Angelica muliense sp. nov. (Apiaceae), a new species from Sichuan, Southwest China

Chenyang Liao, Jiazhen Zhang, Jinbo Tan, Yi Chen & Xiangguang Ma
Angelica muliensis (Apiaceae), a new species from Sichuan Province, southwest China, is described and illustrated. The new species resembles A. biserrata, but is mainly differed by the shapes of leaflets and sheaths, umbel number and size, especially mericarp features. The distinguishing characters of these two species are presented and compared.

Data from: A new subfamily classification of the Leguminosae based on a taxonomically comprehensive phylogeny

Clark, Manuel De La Estrella, Peter Gasson, GeoffreyC. Kite, BenteB. Klitgaard, GwilymP. Lewis, Danilo Neves, Gerhard Prenner, María De Lourdes Rico-Arce, ArianeR. Barbosa, Maria Cristina López-Roberts, Luciano Paganucci De Queiroz, PétalaG. Ribeiro … & Tingshuang Yi
The classification of the legume family proposed here addresses the long-known non-monophyly of the traditionally recognised subfamily Caesalpinioideae, by recognising six robustly supported monophyletic subfamilies. This new classification uses as its framework the most comprehensive phylogenetic analyses of legumes to date, based on plastid matK gene sequences, and including near-complete sampling of genera (698 of the currently recognised 765 genera) and ca. 20% (3696) of known species. The matK gene region has been the most...
