Abstract: The global biodiversity loss is a consensus. The biodiversity conservations shortfalls make conservation of biological diversity even more challenging. For many taxa, the knowledge about their distributions is deficient, and this is called the Wallacean shortfall. This situation is no different within algae biodiversity, especially in Brazil. There is still an enormous inequity of sample effort, as is the case of the Parnaíba River Basin (Northeast region), which had only 10 algal species in published (the low… Show more

“…This region encompasses an ecotone that is under the natural influence of the Caatinga and Cerrado Biomes. The sample was found in a region with few records of algae (Auricchio et al 2019). Although the analyzed material is abundant, the difficulty of access to the site and the environmental changes that the region has been suffering have not allowed new access to the material.…”

“…Menezes et al (2015) recorded 4,747 species of algae and cyanobacteria for Brazil. This number is increasing even more with several study efforts, such as the algae flora of streams in the Parnaíba River basin (Auricchio et al 2019), checklist of the Cosmarium in Brazil (Biolo & Bicudo 2018), floristic survey of urban parks (D'alessandro & Nogueira 2017), and descriptions of new species (Ramos et al 2017, Lehmkuhl et al 2019, Ramos et al 2019, Zorzal-Almeida et al 2020. One of the most relevant studies about Brazilian microalgae flora is the survey of the 'Algal Flora of the Parque Estadual das Fontes do Ipiranga (PEFI)', which started in 1962 and registered 869 taxa in 42 fascicles (Bicudo 2020).…”
