BEISELIA mexicana

€26.50
Author : Lewis Leonard Forman
Family : Burseraceae
Habitat : Mexico
This dioecious member of the Burseraceae family was named by Lewis Leonard Forman in 1987. It is found in the forests of Michoacán in Mexico, growing in well-drained soil with a little water and sun. It seems that the branched stem can reach 100 centimeters in diameter, while it reaches ten meters in height. The flowers are white.
Beiselia mexicana was discovered by Karl-Werner Beisel (owner of German Kakteenland) in 1979 in a remote area of Mexico, and its position in the family was not immediately clear. An in-depth study by Lewis Leonard Forman considered many characters and could only tentatively conclude that it must belong to Bursereae. The general morphology suggested affinities with the Bursereae, the pollen indicated affinities with the Canarieae, and many anatomical characters indicated a closer agreement with the Bursereae and Protieae than with the Canarieae. The main basis for its final grouping was the emphasis on the fruit characters, which had similarities with the fruits of Boswellia and Triomma. B. m. has simple cotyledons; molecular studies suggest that it is sister to the rest of the family (e.g. Clarkson 2002). This has considerable implications for the evolution of characteristics, including cotyledon morphology; Beiselia probably also has derived characteristics, such as its gynaecium with 9-12 carpels.
