This monograph is the third installment of a three-part study of the synandrous Mimosaceae occurring in the Americas, that is, those genera of the tribe Ingeae ever referred to Pithecellobium Martius. In the first comprehensive treatment since 1875, Part III covers the genus Calliandra in an alphataxonomic revision comprising some 130 species. As redefined, the genus is endemic to the Americas, extending from New Mexico to Chile, the so-called calliandras of Africa and Asia being excluded. Includes keys, descriptions, black-and-white drawings, and distribution maps.
