MEDEIROS, Maria Cláudia Melo Pacheco de; ALVES, Marccus  and  LOUZADA, Rafael Batista. Flora of Usina São José, Igarassu, Pernambuco: Bignoniaceae. Rodriguésia [online]. 2018, vol.69, n.2, pp.905-914. ISSN 0370-6583.

Bignoniaceae is predominantly neotropical, with significant diversity of species throughout Brazil. Although it is very representative in northeast, few detailed studies of the group were carried out in the region until now. This study contributes knowledge of Bignoniaceae in northeast by sampling species from Usina São José, a set of Atlantic Forest fragments in Pernambuco. Ten species from eight genera were recorded, most of which endemic to Brazil. The taxonomic treatment includes identification key, descriptions, comments, and illustrations.

Keywords : Atlantic Forest; floristics; northeastern Brazil.
