    BACKGROUND : The role of endemic murid rodents as hosts of arthropod vectors of diseases of medical and veterinary significance is well established in the northern hemisphere. In contrast, endemic murids are comparative ...
  • Smith, G.F. (Gideon Francois), 1959-; Figueiredo, Estrela (British Cactus and Succulent Society, 2013)
    We argue that the names Aloe hexapetala Salm-Dyck, A. drepanophylla Baker, Aloe chloroleuca Baker and Aloe platylepis Baker should not be regarded as competing with the name Aloe speciosa Baker. The latter name ...
