Abstract: This study provides a checklist of angiosperm species from Jalapão region, Tocantins, Brazil, inserted within the Cerrado biome, a global biodiversity hotspot. The region of Jalapão is still well preserved despite current threats to its biodiversity, however its plant diversity is still poorly understood. To generate the present checklist, fieldwork was carried out and relevant herbarium collections were consulted. Angiosperms distributed in the grassland and savanna physiognomies with dry, non-rocky soils wer… Show more

“…In general, subshrubs had more species in all three vegetation types while graminoid herbs had greater cover. The most species-rich families found in the shrub grassland and savanna belonged to Myrtaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Asteraceae and Fabaceae, which are well represented in floristic surveys in the Cerrado (e.g., Batalha and Mantovani 2001;Antar and Sano 2019). Species from these families in the Cerrado store reserves and biomass in a great diversity of thickened underground organs that can support regeneration of individual plants after seasonal droughts or fire (Simon et al 2009;Pausas et al 2018;Pilon et al 2020).…”

“…The Sono River Basin (SRB) is one of the main hydrological units entirely within the Cerrado biome, since it comprises several areas of environmental protection, including the Jalapão State Parque (JSP) and the Environmental Protection Region of the Jalapão (EPRJ). The Jalapão region forms the largest protected area of Cerrado, has a very diversified flora, with species that are not found in other Cerrado regions and is under serious threat of large-scale deforestation, mostly due to the MATOPIBA agricultural development plan (BRASIL, 2015), which included the region as part of an expanding agricultural frontier (Silva and Bates, 2002, Antar and Sano, 2019, Eloy et al, 2019. Therefore, the Jalapão region is in critical need for tools to support its hydrological management.…”

“…Unfortunately, the Cerrado and Caatinga floras are not completely known; there are a lot of collection gaps (e.g., BFG 2015; Antar & Sano 2019). Cerrado and Caatinga species could even become extinct before being described (Lees & Pinn 2015).…”
