Palicourea includes about 200 species of shrubs and small trees distributed widely. Palicourea plants are typically found in the understory and subcanopy of moist to wet tropical forests, from low to high elevations. Palicourea flowers have well developed tubes and typically are brightly colored, odorless, and pollinated by hummingbirds, and the carnose, usually blue to purple-black fruits are dispersed by birds. Nearly all Palicourea species are distylous; this appears to be the ancestral condition for the genus, though it seems that some species have been lost on the Caribbean islands.

Bom dia. Talvez devessem incluir nas informações do gênero Palicourea, que são plantas muito tóxicas se forem ingeridas. Algo em torno de 0,6g/1,0g por kilograma de peso é suficiente para causar morte súbita em animas de pastagem. A planta é muito comum no Brazil e é a principal causadora de mortes em rebanhos.

Desculpem escrever em português(Brazil), mas não sou fluente no inglês.
