About this book

Language: English with bilingual summaries in English and Spanish

The following legume genera in Ecuador are revised: Cajanus (1 sp.), Calopogonium (3 spp.), Centrosema (9 spp.), Cologania (1 sp.), Galactia (2 spp.), Mucuna (8 spp.), Pueraria (1 sp.), Rhynchosia (7 spp.) and Teramnus (2 spp.). The species of Cajanus and Pueraria, C. cajan and P. phaseoloides, originate from Asia and have become established in seminatural, disturbed habitats. One new species, Mucuna ecuatoriana, is described and several lectotypifications are made. Keys to all species are presented within respective genus along with synonymy, specimen citations, taxonomic references, and information on ecology and distribution. Many species are illustrated with either line drawings and/or colour photos.
