MORAES, Andreza Magro; MILWARD-DE-AZEVEDO, Michaele Alvim  and  FARIA, Ana Paula Gelli de. Passifloraceae sensu stricto in the Serra do Brigadeiro State Park, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Rodriguésia [online]. 2018, vol.69, n.2, pp.815-840. ISSN 0370-6583.

The present study goal was to survey the taxonomic diversity of Passifloraceae sensu stricto in the Serra do Brigadeiro State Park (PESB), Minas Gerais and to investigate the ecological aspects related to the distribution, state of conservation and occurrence of the species in different altitude classes within the study area. Eleven species of the genus Passiflora were identified: P. alata, P. amethystina, P. capsularis, P. edulis, P. filamentosa, P. mediterranea, P. miersii, P. porophylla, P. rhamnifolia, P. speciosa and P. tetraden, of which four are new records for the PESB (P. alata, P. capsularis, P. filamentosa and P. rhamnifolia). Most of the species are considered endangered at a regional level, with exception of P. filamentosa and P. miersii, classified as "Data Deficient", and P. speciosa and P. mediterranea, considered as "Least Concern". Only P. alata and P. rhamnifolia reached the highest elevations in the area, in campos de altitude (1.700-1.800 m).
