Die neue, große und umfassende Flora der Kanarischen Inseln

Im vorliegenden Werk werden auf 1.300 Seiten über 2.000 Farn- und Blütenpflanzen der Kanarischen Inseln in Wort und Bild dargestellt. Fast alle der etwa 650 endemischen Sippen werden mit einem oder mehreren Fotos abgebildet. Hinzu kommen zahlreiche, meist mediterrane, eingebürgerte und invasive Arten.

Über 2.400 Farbfotos, darunter zahlreiche Detailaufnahmen, 

ermöglichen eine sichere Bestimmung der auf den Kanaren vorkommenden Arten. Im Text finden sich außerdem Angaben zu 200 weiteren Arten, wie man sie unterscheidet und auf welchen Inseln sie vorkommen.

Im einleitenden Teil werden die einzelnen Vegetationsstufen beschrieben, des Weiteren die Inseln und ihre Entstehung und die Entwicklung der Flora.

Dieses Buch ist eine unverzichtbare Ergänzung zu den bisher vorliegenden Bestimmungsbüchern. Unentbehrlich ist es für alle Pflanzenliebhaber der Kanaren: für Botaniker, Studenten, Lehrer als auch für Touristen.

The genus Carex L. (Cyperaceae) in Europe, 1; Accepted names, hybrids, synonyms, distribution, chromosome numbers

Verfügbar ab Dezember 2015

About the e-book

On 21 December 2011 Carex Europaea, volume 1, was published. This book was sold out rather quickly, so now has been decided to produce an updated e-book version. In the e-book some improvements are made on the text of the 2011 version. Besides, literature within the period 2011-2015 has been taken into account.

This e-book is a documentary book about the nomenclature and distribution of European taxa and hybrids within the genus Carex L. (Cyperaceae). Of all European taxa are given their Accepted Names and all known synonyms both with full citation. Altogether there are about 4500 names involved. Of all taxa is given their distribution within Europe per country and worldwide is given their general distribution. Providing they exist the chromosome numbers (2n) are given for Accepted taxa. 

All known European hybrids are mentioned, most of them provided with a name, the others with only their hybrid formula. Of all hybrids is given their European distribution as well, albeit probably incomplete.

Finally about 30 taxa are regarded to be introduced in Europe.

In the back of the book almost 150 pages present full colour photos of about 2/3 of all European species and some hybrids. The photos are meant “to give all the names a face”.

Seven Appendices complete this book. Listed are all authors with their full name lifetime/year of birth and country/countries. All the abbreviated publications used in the main text of chapter 2 and 3 are fully cited. Finally there are lists of “Carices named after”, a list of all the countries and islands, a list of “Interesting websites”, an Appendix with Introduced taxa and one with Question marks.

Finally an Index with all the Synonyms and one with Taxa from outside Europe are given.

This e-book aims to be a reference work for everybody working in the field of Botany or Nature Management.

Family Eurycercidae (Branchiopoda: Cladocera: Anomopoda)

The Cladocera (Crustacea: Branchiopoda) are a group of microscopic crustaceans that are dominant in continental water bodies of almost every type (Dumont & Negrea, 2002; Forró et al., 2008). They have become model objects for evolutionary, genetic, and ecological investigations that use different methods and approaches (Lampert, 2011; Smirnov, 2014). The family Eurycercidae Kurz, 1875 emend. Dumont & Silva-Briano, 1998, with the single genus Eurycercus Baird, 1843, is a remarkable group of the order Anomopoda Sars, 1865 (Crustacea: Branchiopoda), currently including 19 formal taxa at the species-group level, published and available according to the ICZN (2000). Among these, 13 are regarded as valid at this moment. Some of them are among the largest representatives of the cladocerans. They inhabit the littoral zone (preferring areas covered by macrophytes) in permanent water bodies in Eurasia and North America, more rarely in Africa and South America (Frey, 1971; Smirnov, 1971, 1974) and sometimes have an important role in freshwater ecosystems. Eurycercids consume decomposing organic matter, bacteria, and algae and, at the same time, are important food items for some species of fish. Especially in Arctic waters they make up a significant element in the fish diet (Björnsson, 2001; Bekker, 2012). The remains of Eurycercus (head shields, postabdomens etc.) are well preserved in lake bottom deposits (Frey, 1959; Szeroczyńska & Sarmaja-Korjonen, 2007; Smirnov, 2011; Korosi & Smol, 2012), and due to this the eurycercids are also utilized in palaeolimnological reconstructions of palaeoclimate, water level changes, etc. But despite their significant role in freshwater ecosystems, many aspects of eurycercid biology have been studied inadequately. Even their taxonomy remained confused until the last decade.

This monograph is an attempt to summarize the available data on taxonomy and  distribution of all currently known species of the genus. In contrast to a previous volume in this series on Ilyocryptus (Kotov & Štifter, 2006), we can confidently state that only few additional taxa of Eurycercus will be discovered in the future, i.e. in inadequately studied Arctic Canada, where few undescribed taxa of E. (Teretifrons) occur according to Hann (1990).

Index of Angiosperm leaf species names S-Z, 1823-2014

During work on leaf impressions/compressions the need of an index of names and descriptions of angiosperm leaf species became evident. It also was of value to know where, when and by whom they were created or used. 

Therefore, this index was made, centered on the literature available in the Netherlands and focusing on the northern hemisphere. It is updated up to 2014.

As already stated in foregoing delivery of this index the author is aware that much of the published material is missing in this list; nevertheless he hopes that this index may lead to a more easy approach of the literature on leaf impressions/compression fossils and the avoidance of the creation of homonyms. This delivery is the last of a series, only one next delivery is planned, (Addenda), containing the material found during research of published material, not mentioned in the foregoing deliveries.

In this index only genera and species are treated, taxa of minor order are not included. The species are listed in alphabetical order and the literature is cited in chronological and alphabetical order. Publications giving only listings of species without comment are omitted; only publications with a description or a illustration are used. Also use is made of earlier indexes, especially from North America. When descriptions are given in more than one publication of an author of a combination of authors, the later publications are listed chronologically behind the first one without repeated citing of the name(s) of the author(s). The original description is marked with an asterisk behind the publication. When the original description is repeated in later publications, these are also marked with an asterisk.

In this delivery coverage has again been extended thanks to intensive research in libraries. This publication is based on the no longer existing library of the laboratory of Palaeobotany and Palynology at the University of Utrecht and on the library of Naturalis Biodiversity Center at Leiden. The author is indebted to the National Herbarium at Leiden for the possibility to make an extensive use of their library.
