Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Connaraceae are represented in Peru by 20 species in three genera (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), mainly lianas and trees. Here we recognize three endemic species in three genera. Endemic species are found in Humid Lowland Amazonian Forests region, between 100 and 400 m elevation. One of these species has been recorded within Peru's protected areas system.
