Abstract:

As part of a taxonomic revision of the Iberian and Balearic taxa of Ornithogalum, quantitative and qualitative characters are studied in detail in Ornithogalum subg. Beryllis (Salisb.) Baker, and they are evaluated for taxonomy of the two taxa: O. narbonense L. and O. pyrenaicum L. A complete description is presented for both species, and data on their biology, ecology, and distribution are also included. Moreover, a key is provided to facilitate identification. En el marco de una revisión de las especies ibéricas y baleares de Ornithogalum, se estudia con detalle O. subg. Beryllis (Salisb.) Baker, y se evalúa cualitativa y cuantitativamente el valor taxonómico de los caracteres morfológicos de los dos táxones: O. narbonense L. y O. pyrenaicum L. Para cada especie se presenta una descripción completa y datos sobre su biología, ecología y distribución. Además, se aporta una clave para facilitar la identificación de los táxones aceptados.
