Legume bibliography 2021

Warren Cardinal-McTeague, University of British Columbia, Canada

Methodology – The Legume Bibliography 2021 was manually compiled using keyword searches and date filtering on the websites of journals that frequently publish legume research (see below). The search terms were limited to “Leguminosae” and “Fabaceae”, and they were searched independently. In most cases, “*.ris” files were able to be downloaded and imported into Mendeley Desktop v.1.19.8, where they were tagged under the headings provided. Most legume-related publications are presented here, with the exception of the numerous (>50) Pharmacology studies exploring health and anti-microbial properties of legume extracts. The final list was reviewed by Colin Hughes and Gwilym Lewis and any overlooked publications were manually added.

List of searched journals and publishers (updated annually, if one is missed please send a message to the editors).

Journals: American Journal of Botany; Annales Botanici Fennici; Annals in Botany; Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden; Australian Journal of Botany; AoB Plants; Biologia; Biotropica; BMC Ecology and Evolution; BMC Genomics; BMC Plant Biology; Boletim do Museu Integrado de Roraima; Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society; Botany; Brittonia; Caldasia; Candollea; Diversity; Ecography; Ecology; Ecology and Evolution; Flora; Frontiers in Plant Science; Grana; Hoehnea; International Journal of Plant Science; Journal of Applied Ecology; Journal of Biogeography; Journal of Ecology; Journal of Japanese Botany; Journal of Plant Taxonomy and Geography (Webbia); Journal of Systematics and Evolution; Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas; Kew Bulletin; Mitochondrial DNA Part B; Molecular Ecology; Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution; Nature; Neodiversity; New Phytologist; New Zealand Journal of Botany; Nordic Journal of Botany; Novon; Nuytsia; Pacific Science; Palynology; PeerJ; PhytoKeys; Phytologia; Phytotaxa; Planta; Plant Diversity; Plant Ecology and Evolution; Plant Species Biology; Plant Systematics and Evolution; Plants; Rodriguésia; South African Journal of Botany; Systematic Biology; Systematic Botany; Taxon; Telopea; Trees.

Notes – 1. Books and Chapters are not included in the bibliography. Please submit an announcement for new legume books to be highlighted in the Bean Bag Newsletter. 2. Pre-prints and early-view publications are not included in the bibliography, with the exception of a few journals that consider digital releases the date of effective publication (those articles may still be paginated into volumes in the following year). 3. We recognize there are spelling errors in many of the article titles, including species and authorities. We present them verbatim as a matter of record. Acknowledgements – Many thanks to our colleagues who provided their citations, some of which are recovered by these search methods. Please include *.ris files with your submissions, when possible.

Results – A total of 351 new publications were recovered for the 2021 Bibliography:
