The objective of this treatment is twofold: a generic survey of the Neotropical Triclisieae and Anomospermeae (Menispermaceae), stressing characters of the drupe and embryo; and keys, wherever possislbe one for each sex, to the species of each genus. The systematics of Menispermaceae is still at that stage of elaboration when comparative study of gross morphology yields basic and important information. The authors recognize the stage for what it is, an indispensable preliminary to future work in which studies of pollen, chemistry, and wood anatomy will surely contribute precious data. Includes keys, descriptions, and black and white illustrations.
