About this book

Language: Spanish

This book is the third and expanded edition of the first complete monograph of the Rubiaceae family (the fourth most diverse among the phanerogams with 670 genera and approximately 13,800 species), the fifth most important in the flora of Mexico represented by 113 genera and more than 670 species. During the period of 13 years since the first edition (2006), the number of treated genera increased from 103 to 113 and the species from 582 to 670 as a result of exploration of different naturalistic institutions and societies. The work also covers more than 3,000 synonyms and 180 illustrations, plus a phytogeographic review of the role and importance of the family in the extraordinary diversity of both the flora of Mexico, and the tropical flora and vegetation of the Caribbean.

Since the publication of the first edition in 2006, several detailed molecular and morpho-anatomical phylogenetic studies have led to results that allowed important taxonomic decisions to be solved, and discussed taxonomic problems, such as e.g. in the complexes of Bouvardia, Deppea, Psychotria and Rondeletia that appear as new in the pages of this book. The importance of this edition was the fact that, synchronously with the second edition of this monograph in 2012, a taxonomic elaboration of the Rubiaceae family was published in volume 4(2) of the Flora Mesoamericana using a traditional macromorphological concept that left out attention for most of the results of anatomical, submicroscopic and molecular investigations of the last 10–15 years.

Many of these traditional decisions are anachronistic – although accepted and supported several times by the World Checklist. In this version, the author publishes several dozen observations (Obs.) to make the necessary corrections.

Summary in Spanish:
Este libro es la tercera y ampliada edición de la primera monografía completa familia Rubiaceae (la cuarta más diversa entre las fanerógamas con 670 géneros y 13 800 especies aproximadamente) la quinta más importante en la flora de México representada por 113 géneros y más de 670 especies. Durante el período de 13 anos pasados desde la primera edición (2006), el número de los géneros tratados se aumento de 103 a 113 y de las especies de 582 a 670 en consecuencia de la actividad exploradora de las distintas instituciones y sociedades naturalistas. La obra abarca también más de 3000 sinónimos y 180 ilustraciones y una resena fitogeográfica sobre el papel e importancia de la familia en la diversidad extraordinaria de la flora de México en la flora y vegetación tropical del Caribe.

Desde la publicación de la primera edición (2006) varios estudios filogenéticos moleculares y morfo-anatómicos detallados llevaron a resultados que permitie-ron tomar importantes decisiones taxonómicas resolviendo problemas discutidos taxonómicos, como p.e. en los complejos de Bouvardia, Deppea, Psychotria y Rondeletia que aparecen como nuevas en las páginas de este libro. La importancia de esta edición ha sido actualizada por el hecho, que sincrónicamente con la segunda edición de esta monografía (2012) fue publicado una elaboración taxonómica de la familia Rubiaceae para el volumen 4(2) de la Flora Mesoamericana en un concepto tradicional macromorfológico dejando fuera de atención la mayoría de los resultados de las investigaciones anatómicas, submicroscópicas y moleculares de los últimos 10–15 anos.

Muchas de estas decisiones tradicionales resultan anacrónicas – aunque aceptadas y apoyadas varias veces por el World Checklist también. En esta versión publicamos varias decenas de observaciones (Obs.) par a hacer las correcciones necesarias.
