Abstract

Acanthaceae, Gesneriaceae, and Loganiaceae are well-represented in Brazil and in the Neotropical region, although they have been poorly studied in northeastern Brazil, especially in the Atlantic Forest of Pernambuco State. Thus, aiming to contribute with the taxonomic knowledge about these taxa, this study had the objective of identifying and characterizing the species found in forest fragments of the Usina São José, in Igarassu, as a continuation of the monograph series for the area. Fieldwork was carried out between January 2017 and January 2018. Specimens from the herbaria CEPEC, HST, IPA, JPB, NY, PEUFR, RB, and UFP were also analyzed. Eleven species were found in the study area, five belonging to Acanthaceae, two to Gesneriaceae, and four to Loganiaceae. An identification key, descriptions, illustrations and comments on distribution and habitats are provided.
