Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Copaifera is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae.The scientific name means "copal-bearer" (or more accurately, copaiba-bearer), since economically important resins and essential oils can be acquired from them. They are also important for production of biodiesel and wood, especially Copaifera langsdorffii. Other species are threatened, mainly by deforestation.In biology, a genus is a low-level taxonomic rank used in the classification of living and fossil organisms, which is an example of definition by genus and differentia.show more
