Perez-Moreau & Crespo (1992), transfieren esta especie al genero Loasa Adanson
basandose en la dehiscencia del fruto (capsula dehiscente por encima de la insercion de los lobulos calicinos hasta el apice), criterio compartido en el presente tratamiento, en contraposicion con Weigend (1997) y Ackermann & Weigend (2007) quienes no comparten esta idea.
Survey of pathologies in Crassostrea gasar (Adanson
, 1757) oysters from cultured and wild populations in the Sao Francisco Estuary, Sergipe, northeast Brazil.
Marie-Therese Reboul's skillful rendering of natural phenomena, which so impressed Vien and the comte de Caylus, is easily observed in her illustrations for Adanson
's Histoire naturelle du Senegal.
Known locally as renala ('mother of the forest' in Malagasy), these trees belong to the tallest baobab species in the world: Adansonia grandidieri, named after two great 19th-century French botanists Michel Adanson
and Alfred Grandidier.
preponderance of typified family names starting with Michael Adanson
(12) The coast of West Africa was visited by Michel Adanson
, Henry Smeathman, and Adam Afzelius, but the natural history of the African interior remained unexplored, even though Banks, at the helm of the African Society, hastened to recommend explorers, such as Mungo Park, who were also trained botanists.
For example, while the naturalist Adanson
, a contemporary of Linneaus, proposed a method for organizing botanical phenomena based on the identification of differences between individual specimens (Foucault, 1970), Linneaus advocated a systematic approach based on similarity of reproductive structure.
Restriction patterns were analyzed with the Taxotron package (Taxolab Software, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France) comprising the RestrictoScan, RestrictoTyper, Adanson
, and Dendrograph programs.
Preliminary investigation into some factors affecting the settlement of the larvae of the mangrove oyster Crassostrea gasar (Adanson
) in the Lagos lagoon.
Most centrally, he uses a passage from the botanist Adanson
(of Baobab fame), a careful ethnographer, and perhaps the first to teach himself an African language, who in a moment of careless rapture described a village scene as 'a perfect image of pure nature [...] the whole revived in my mind the idea of our first parents, and I seemed to contemplate the world in its primitive state' (p.
(1727-1806), Bernard de Jussieu (1699-1777), and Augustin Pyrame de Candolle (1778-1841, who introduced the idea of taxonomy) all produced "natural" classifications that grouped plants into families on the basis of more "natural" features, including their general anatomy and embryonic development.
