The Lecythidaceae Pages at The New York Botanical Garden
Lecythidaceae - the Brazil nut family
by Scott A. Mori, Nathan P. Smith, X. Cornejo and Ghillean T. Prance
"The long-term goal of this website is to provide in a single location all of the information that we and our collaborators have accumulated on the taxonomy and biology of the Brazil nut family. We will include keys to species (not yet available), web pages for the Neotropical species (all names and synonyms are in the database but all fields in the records are not yet populated), and copies of papers that have been written about the systematics, economic botany, habitats, pollination, dispersal biology, anatomy and morphology, and molecular biology of the family. One molecular study by Morton et al. (1997) has already been published and others are in progress and will be added to this site as they are published."
Bob Corrigan added an association between "The Lecythidaceae Pages at The New York Botanical Garden" and "Bertholletia excelsa Bonpl.".
