Content

Notes

Bassia belongs to Camphorosmoideae-Camphorosmeae and in the circumscription adopted here consists of c. 20 C4 annuals or perennials. The genus is distributed from the western Mediterranean to East Asia (Kadereit & Freitag 2011), with the main centre of diversity in Central Asia. It represents an interesting example of C4 leaf type diversity (Freitag & Kadereit 2014) and multiple reduction of water storage tissue (Akhani & Khoshravesh 2013; Kadereit & al. 2014).
