Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Vochysiaceae are represented in Peru by four genera and 32 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), all trees. Here we recognize two endemic species in the genus Qualea. These species are found in Humid Lowland Amazonian Forests region, between 100 and 160 m elevation. None of the endemic species have been recorded within Peru's protected areas system.
