Nomenclature of tribes within the Urticaceae

Article

Summary

As part of systematic studies of the genus Elatostema (Urticaceae) and its sister genera, it was apparent that different names had been applied at the tribal level for these genera. This paper proposes that the tribal name Elatostemeae be used for the genera currently delineated as belonging to tribe Lecantheae (Friis 1993). It is also proposed that the authorship of the currently recognised tribes in the Urticaceae should be attributed to Charles Gaudichaud-Beaupres as described in H. L. C. de Freycinet’s Voyage autour du mondeexecuté sur les corvettes de S. M. l’Uranie et la Physiciene, published in 1830.

Key Words

Acknowledgements

We gratefully thank R. K. Brummitt (K), J. L. Reveal (NY), N. J. Turland (MO) and P. G. Wilson (NSW), for helpful discussions on tribal nomenclature of the Urticaceae and for guidance on application of rules of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. We are extremely grateful for the critical and comprehensive reviews of this paper by I. Friis (C) and P. Hoffmann (K). Their comments have significantly improved the quality of this paper by identifying inconsistencies in our argument and by assisting us to summarise unambiguously several nomenclatural issues.
