Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Rutaceae are represented in Peru by 25 genera and 76 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), mainly trees and shrubs. Here we recognize six endemic taxa in the same number of genera. These endemics are found in Humid Lowland Amazonian Forests, Very Humid Premontane Forests and Mesoandean regions, between 130 and 2000 m elevation. Three endemic taxa have been recorded within Peru's protected areas system.
